Dian Burroughs--Military wife (retired), mother of 3 beautiful young ladies (twins + one), award winning photographer, entrepreneur, and crafter. These are just a few words that describes who I am. "Capturing the passions of the heart" is what I aim for. I am a portrait photographer based in the Murrieta/Temecula area in California. I have always had a creative eye and heart ever since I can remember. I picked up my first camera when I was 9 years old and instantly loved it. I received my Certificate of Training in Photography in 1983 , studied Journalism/Film/Television and received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Mass Communications in 1990. I've enjoyed working in the television news industry but photography has always been my passion and the love of family is my joy. Received the 2022 SWRC-Inland Empire Essential Piece Award. 2017 and 2018 Gallery exhibits in Escondido and San Marcos. Blue and Red Ribbon Winner for San Diego competitions, and I am a proud member of Professional Photographers of America. With more than 20 years of experience overseas and stateside, I am committed to providing you quality images. I welcome the opportunity to earn your trust in delivering to you the wonderful celebrations of life in the art of portraiture.
