Diana:
I continue to be inspired by the energy and intensity I have observed in your passion for the camera. While we were in India it was a tremendous pleasure to watch and share as you recorded the faces and colors of the people and the Mela. As an artist, I understand well the hunger for beauty and I have enjoyed sharing the wonderful collection of your work that resulted from that journey. Many friends and colleagues have remarked on your ability to capture shades of personality in your photos of individuals in daily life. They are especially rich because each seems to trap a unique and vivid image of living beings moving through the colors and events of their day. I am transported each time to the experience of tastes, smells colors and the overwhelming aliveness of that place. You are remarkable in your ability to capture such energy.

Thank you for sharing your gifts!

With warmest regards: Peter Schindler

I wanted to let you know that your photo shoot for our Christmas party was awesome. I was really impressed that you were willing to take picture outside n the cold with our horse and buggy rides. You also did a great job of impromptu pictures walking around the party of our guests. The cameo shots you took for the guests Christmas ornaments turn out nice also. I have a Valentine party coming up soon. It would be cute to have couples pictures taken. I plan to call you again, to see if you're available.

Thank you so much for all the beautiful pictures! We had so much fun at our "Biker Photo Shoot"! The background settings were perfect! We especially love the one where we are silhouetted by the sun going down. It was just amazing! You truly captured our personalities in these photos! We are so looking forward to another exciting session, this time with our dogs!

"We have known Diana's family for more than 13 years and we consider them part of our family. Over the years, she has photographed 4 generations of my family. This includes our family reunion, incredible newborn pics, birthdays, baby showers, new brides and hundreds of candid shots, and video tributes of loved ones who have passed that are tastefully and beautifully done. And the forever memories that she made for us of our dogs and horses are breathtaking. Many of her photographs are framed and hanging on our walls in our home."

I show dogs and needed pictures for my website, so I set up an appointment with Diana for a photo session. She photographed fifteen Labrador Retriever's ranging in ages from puppy to adult. I wanted a head shot and a profile shot of each dog. It took hours to get all the pictures taken as dogs, like children, don't always cooperate, so Diana had to take many shots of each dog. I never felt rushed or pressured to take less pictures because Diana was so patient and pleasant. When I got the photographs they were excellent. I got usable head and profile shots on almost every dog. By usable, I mean that the photo's captured what I wanted to be shown of each dog, and I am very particular, because my website is where other show breeders, service dog organizations, search and rescue organizations, and prospective puppy owners view my dogs. My website also attracts people looking for Labrador Retriever's to appear in advertisements, commercials, and movies, so how my dogs are displayed is extremely important. Diana has updated and maintained my website (sandialabradors.com) since February, 2013. I have shown dogs for 33 years, had many photography sessions with my dogs, and Diana is one of the most patient photographers I have worked with, in addition, to producing some of the best photographs I have had taken of my dogs.

Aylad's Phtography is the greatest! I am a procrastinator but Diana got our sitting done and a disc in my hand within a few days! And sitting is not the word for what she did with my family of 15. She took us to 3 natural backdrops! We all had a blast and have really great shots! Thanks Diana!

Diana Diaz is an amazing photographer. She's very professional and knows how to work her camera. She is very helpful in assisting with the best poses and settings in order to make the pictures come out just the way you like them. Diana worked with me on a personal photo shoot and also flew out to California for me to get the very best photographs for the Nike Womens Marathon that I participated in. She also put together an amazing video for me with the photos she took to capture some very special moments. I highly recommend her and I am a great fan of her work.

Sincerely,

Diana,

I wanted to thank you for your help with the sale of my horse. This was the first time that I had a professional photographer take photographs for a sale. When you came out to our house, I wasn't sure what to expect. I was impressed that you knew so much about photographing horses. Then when we went to the arena and you took the video and action shots, again, I wasn't sure what to expect. After the photo and video session, when we sat down and discussed the website, I had a much greater understanding of what you were doing. Once you created the website and uploaded the photos and video, I was really impressed. I ended up selling my horse for the close to the amount I was asking and believe that the website

helped with the sale. I will refer you to others in need of this type of service.

Thank you for your help!

I have been present at several photo shoots with Diana Diaz of Aylad's Photography. It is always a fun and interesting experience, she makes every one very comfortable (except when you are up to your * in the muddy edges of the Rio Grande! LOL). She works surprisingly fast, it is all over before you are expecting it to be. The results are stellar! Her eye for color and design and imagery is impeccable. You look at the photos, and remember the photo session, and think to yourself, "How did she DO that? Anyone can snap a pic, almost no one can do it this well. Thanks for the great shots, Diana!

I have known Diana for a while now and have had the privilege to accompany her on her photo shoot of some beautiful horses, even becoming a model myself for a few shots. I must say I am truly AMAZED at how the pictures showcase her PROFESSIONALISM and PASSION for photography. They are just stunning. Being an amateur photographer myself, Diana has given me valuable pointers on how to watch for lighting, angles and other things when taking pictures. I would recommend anyone who is looking for a professional photographer that showcases grace, style and intuitiveness when taking photographs. Sincerely,

Cat W.

One of our kitties, Sean, was diagnosed with cancer, and we wanted to get some good pictures of him with his two feline sisters and us before he started showing symptoms. Diana was able to do the shoot at our house within three days of our submitting the request to Thumbtack. She arrived on time and spent several hours with us, letting the kitties shine in their own time. She even got pictures of all five of us together which, with three cats, is quite a feat. By the next day she sent us some email with small versions of thirty-six of the pictures she was editing. A few days after that she came back to our house and handed us two DVDs, one with over 120 edited, high-resolution, gorgeous full-sized photos and the other with over 400 high-resolution gorgeous full-sized unedited pictures. She gave us the choice between raw format or jpeg and not only permission but the suggestion to get them printed up ourselves in whatever size and format we wanted. There were no surprises with the price; what she quoted via Thumbtack was all-inclusive. We are extremely happy with the results, and plan to do future photo shoots with her when we next need them.

Graduation photos for my son turned out amazing. I'm so pleased with the photos and the customer service. And very helpful with any questions or concerns. My son was very nervous at first but she was able to get him to relax with her personality and able to get amazing shots of him. I will always have these photos of him at this wonderful time of his life. Would definitely recommend and we will return to have family photos done. Repeat customers!

"Great ideas for locations. Great with kids. Very helpful with getting great shots of my three year old who would not sit still. Diana was able to get shots of us standing next to horses, which my oldest daughter loved! Very friendly and patient. Accepting to our own ideas and requests. We felt very comfortable and are definitely going to call her for our Christmas pictures. Thank you, Diana!"
