My name is Diana Elizabeth. I'm a photographer, writer, graphic designer, model, and former journalist who had memorable days reporting from the LA red carpet for E! Online. Here I share my home life, work, and efficient lifestyle solutions.
My husband and I live in a restored 1952 red brick home that sits on a former citrus grove in Phoenix. I enjoy home decor, sewing and gardening. This is a glimpse into my life, travel, and work and the things that I discover along the way - with camera in hand.

Something I learned about film – there are several factors into determining your style when you shoot with film – the camera, film, and the lab that scans your images, it’s like picking who Photoshops/Lightrooms your images. With that said, and knowing those things were a little out of my control, I am definitely pleasantly surprised that each shot has unique composition and direction which meant, I made sure to really move around because once you take the shot, don’t take another! Goodness that cost you $1 for your shot!
Thanks to my girlfriend Charity Maurer who encouraged me to pick up some film and shoot, even though I was terrified, and even though I swear I wasn’t cut out for it. I’m so glad you convinced me otherwise, this was fun. Of course, thanks to my lovely Melayne who was a great sport and one of my favorite gals to shoot.
Stay tuned, because I bought another Canon film camera and now I have two, so you can say I’m hooked.

It was just a few quick snaps but I loved the way this turned out – real florals, something different, and just plain sweet. It seems that most of my friends who are pregnant are having little girls right now which is quite fun for the shopping list.
For the past month I’ve been pouring my heart and soul into helping brand a new company, Freely. Freely will consist of several services but for now, kicks off with a fun monthly lifestyle box for women of faith. I was asked to design the box, after the Freely logo was created by Matt Lehman Studio. I’ve created the advertisement for GodChicks which debuted on the big screen at Dolby Theater with Joyce Meyer, the insert of products, and even photography!
The box is filled with faith-based products like a music and books, in addition to daily lifestyle products such as beauty, lifestyle items (a tote, water bottle) things of that nature, it varies and the contents change each month. The contents vary from 6-8 products, in each box!
The monthly cost is $35, including shipping, and $5 of each subscriber’s box every month goes to a charitable cause – A21 against human sex trafficking. You can cancel anytime.
This project has been so rewarding – to work along side brothers and sisters in Christ, and to have the desire to encourage women of faith. Special thanks to Angela Saban for styling this concept shoot, picking up the signature yellow bike and creating gorgeous everything. Our lovely model was Molly Marie from Love Story Films which took place at her sweet home, a little farm in Gilbert, Ariz.
Hope you will be one of the first subscribers of the Freely box! In September, we have Candace Cameron Brue as a celebrity partner – yes, DJ Tanner from Full House is on board!
