I received my camera as a Christmas gift from my thoughtful mother-in-law and my wonderful husband in 2016. I started taking pictures of all sorts of different things...I took my camera almost everywhere. My husband was probably thinking twice about his gift. I then started getting asked to do pictures for people and events. Why not right? I love taking photographs and simply pausing that moment was enough for me. I then decided one night to open up a photography page on facebook, just to see... ya know? I realized then that this was more than just a "hobby". I then decided to invest time and money into this thing I had no idea what I was doing at the time. Lets fast forward a year later to Christmas of 2017... I decided to make a website and start actually advertising my business. I booked 13 weddings in January of 2018. I couldn't believe It. I was doing something I loved so much, but wasn't doing it at my 100% because of my full-time job, so I went to part-time. My job was amazing and I am forever grateful for all the life lessons it taught me, but I felt like I could do so much more...so I decided it was time.

I took a huge leap of faith and started pursuing my dreams in May of 2018. I am now a full-time photographer with so many dreams and passions. I can't wait to see what the future holds.

whole heartedly,
Diana Gillis
