Over the last decade, Diana has photographed more than 500 newborns. She is known for making her own unique props as she creates her artistic newborn portraits.

In 2019, Diana launched her own fashion collection of custom handmade maternity & postpartum gowns (ETERNAL wardrobe), making her studio highly sought-after for not only photography, but its unique selection of pregnancy wardrobe.

The studio has one of the largest collection of newborn photography props in the Boston area, with a 500SF prop room. In 2010, the studio opened DSP Prop Shop, an online prop shop for photographers nationwide.

A mother of two, Diana embraces the power of this transformational time in a woman’s life. Her pregnancy and newborn photography has been selected to display in local Boston area hospitals, including St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in Boston, MA (Steward Medical) and Winchester Hospital in Winchester, MA (Lahey Health).
