My story.

My love for photography began in high school with a film camera and hours spent in the darkroom. In 2012 when my oldest son ~ a United States Marine ~ returned from a deployment in Afghanistan, I bought my first digital camera to capture the joy of seeing him for the first time in seven (long!) months. Alas, my passion was reignited! When a friend asked me to take pictures of her family and senior pictures of her daughter, Diane Welter Images was born. To this day, I stay true to my "why" ~ to offer my clients high-quality images with the flexibility to use them as they choose.

I am a natural light photographer and my style is colorful and authentic. I consider myself a creative, visual storyteller and I delight in capturing life's beautiful moments.

On a personal note, I live in Eden Prairie, Minnesota and have been married to my husband George for 34 years. We have three adult sons ~ Peter, Will and Jack ~ and a fur baby named Beretta.

In other words...

“We worked with Diane for my daughter's senior pictures. She was so great to work with, and really spent a lot of time making sure we had the pictures we wanted. They turned out so beautifully, much better than I anticipated! Nobody can beat her price point, either.

Thanks Diane”

“You’ll love this ... on the way home his friend called and asked him what he was doing. He said, ‘I had Senior pics.

(Silence)

‘It was chill. Way better than I thought it was going to be.’”

“Diane did two photo sessions for me - of my kids and parents in our yard, and my daughter's senior pictures at the Arboretum. My husband and sons do not like getting pictures taken and she was so laid back that they actually had a good time. And the results were STUNNING. I can't recommend Diane enough - she's a kind, laid-back person who is incredibly easy to work with but also a professional and genuinely talented photographer and editor.”

“Diane has an amazing eye for detail, takes the time to find out about her client's vision and is open to any idea. Diane spent extra time looking for the right destination for my son's senior pictures and we found it! It was great not to be hurried and I enjoyed watching her creativity on the fly, those pictures are amazing! I really love all of his pictures and am grateful that Diane was able to capture the essence of my son's free-spirited personality in settings that he already enjoyed being in.”

“Diane took my senior pictures and they turned out better than I could have ever imagined. Thanks Diane!”

“Diane is an amazing photographer💞. I loved that she captured all the images I mentioned to her. She is excellent with kids has such a soothing voice and gets great shots of individual kids and our entire family!”
