Dianna Capka

Wife, Mother, Photographer

 


Hello!
My name is Dianna and I am a Lancaster PA newborn and family photographer. I was born and raised in Lancaster County, PA. I moved back into the area when my husband and I were in the middle of building our family. It is this family that has helped me to perfect my photography skills on fast moving little ones! I am a stay at home mom to three children, two girls and a boy. I love seeing how their personalities start to emerge in outward expressions.
I wanted to capture all the sweet moments when I started having children. I love when their personalities are forever caught in a photo. When I had my third child, I realized that I wanted to share this passion with others. Children grow up so fast and it is really important to capture moments. A photograph is the only way to freeze time. I hope to do the same for you.
I hope to always grow and better myself as a person and as a photographer. Entering the photography world on the business side has introduced me to wonderful clients and fellow artists. I am proud to be a member of a community who helps to build one another up professionally and personally.
When I started my photographer journey I did it to capture my kids.  I was hiring photographers who were not snapping the photos I wanted during the session.  Too many times, I thought “why didn’t they take that”?  I don’t care if my kid wasn’t looking at the camera for that “perfect” image, what I wanted as a mom was the laugh that was now forever missed.
With my first born having anxiety, she would cry and be uncooperative for photo sessions.  I would pay for a session and get ZERO photos in return.  Several times never an image was taken by the photographer.  Not one single shutter click.  Is it ideal?  No.  But that was my daughter.  She needed a photographer who wasn’t an assembly production worker and one who would actually greet her and say a simple “hello”.
I will work with your children give them what they need for you to get a photo.  If you need more time before or during your session for them to get comfortable with me, let me know.  I will accommodate.
I have worked with several clients who have special circumstances and need a little modification to a standard session.  It isn’t anything I would think unusual. ‘
Through my photography journey, I realized that I tend to find the quarks or the tiny nuances of a personality and  try to capture them.
My personal family photos will only make a card at the store in the funny section.  But they are a glinpse into our life.  My family, their personalities, our relationship, in one image.  I will always cherish, and love, with a little giggle when I look at it.
I am looking forward to combine my photographer visions with your needs and wishes as a client.
