Dragonfly Studio: Fine art Decorating Den Interiors wedding & portrait photography comes to you A iane Bollen, owner of Dragonfly Studio, is known for her artistic wedding photographs and portraits that stand out from traditional shots because she watches her subjects carefully to catch the moment between the moments. She explains, “There is a lot of joy there. At a wedding, you can see the love and extreme happiness in those moments. I want people to remember the joy, not just poses!” Diane enjoys working with people, joking with them, and encouraging them to have fun. Her studio is fully mobile, so she is able to photograph families in their own homes, which is particularly helpful for parents of very young children. During the month of October, Diane is offering family photo sessions, which she calls “Playing in the Leaves.” As the family members interact with each other, Diane captures their love and enjoyment in her photojournalistic style that captures spontaneity and fun. It seems Diane was destined to become a professional photographer. When she was 10 Diane Bollen years old, she received a camera as a gift from her father. She experimented with it, and continued to devote time to her hobby through high school and beyond. Diane has paired her interest in forensic science with photography to produce a reference work for veterinarians. She has also worked on aerial and satellite photography, and notably participated in the Mars Rover Mission. Diane perfected her portrait work by taking photos of her son and daughter. Her membership in the Professional Photographer of America allows Diane access to many resources and continuing education. Diane encourages anyone who is celebrating a milestone to meet with her, view samples of her work, and spend time speaking with her.
