I am so pleased with our family photos

that Diane took. 

We were able to go to a park, and she took the time to get great candid photos! 

Her prices are very reasonable and they include a CD with ​all the pictures on it. 

I have gotten many compliments on the photos.  Thanks again, Diane!

I am an Iowa based, award winning photographer.
Candid photography, to me, is much lighter than a portraiture 'have tos'/posing and frustrations. Candid photography to me is authentic, natural and organic playfulness and fun.

"Diane captured pictures at the 2015 Meeting & Event Planning Expo in Waterloo, IA.

She does a great job with candid photos in that type of environment to catch the essence and energy of an event.

I was especially pleased with her food photography close-ups.

We have great photos to use for marketing future events.

Thanks Diane!"

I love that we get unexpected pictures.

Diane is so down to earth

and easy to work with.

Having three kids in the pictures, kept her busy to get just the right shot.

And for the maternity shoot

she made my wife feel like a princess.

I couldn't be more happy.

~Welcome to the World Little One Package

I started loving art and abstract and candid creativity in the fall of 1973 at about 6 yrs old after we moved to Indianapolis, Indiana from Wilmette, Illinois. Art actually outside of school allowed for an 'escape' from my (pesky) twin brothers.
Through grade school and junior high years of school, I loved learning different forms of artistic expression. One sixth grade project allowed me to use tissue paper for an abstract interpretation of 'Morning of the Carnival Day.' My art teacher entered this into the State of Indiana art contest, and  I won 1st place.
In 2005, I had started investigating abstract/candid art through digital photography. I was totally enamored and in 2012 my heart started singing again and The Candid Shutterbug was born. I wanted to share what I was capturing with the world.
My artistry within the photography medium has evolved over the years to elicit a wide spectrum of feelings and emotions.  These nuances have shown up for me in landscapes, sunrises, sunsets, architecture, abstract and candid photos of people and families.

We had a blast.

Easiest family photo session we have ever had. Everyone got to be them selves.

​What awesome pictures we have had taken

The fun of being able to have fun with my family

and not have to be

the one behind the camera is awesome!

Just did stress free family pictures!!


By just having fun

 having non posed pictures!

She went with us and handled the rest!

 Loss Support

I am writing for the family of Ronald Fouts.
As the daughter of the greatest man I know, this was a great loss for our family when he was promoted to Heaven 12/2014.
The days and hours before my father met his Lord and Savior we were constantly taking photos for who came to visit and family time.
We were so amazed by the support God showed us through one of the hardest times in our lives. One such form of support was from a wonderful lady, Diane Ebert, who was a long time family friend even before my mother Lila Fouts had been promoted to Glory.
This wonderful lady, and terrific photographer, asked if it was possible if she could take a 'photo memory' of my Dads' visitation.  Though this was a different request, I brought it up to his wife, and family and we all agreed.
Little did we know what an impact of a memory reminder it would be.
The pictures were perfect and this great woman captured it all:
the memories, the people, the smiles, the tears ,hugs and laughs.
We may not remember everything from those days and as you look through the photo memory you see how much my dad was loved and how much he influenced so many lives young and old.
The one regret, we did not have Diane take a 'photo memory' of the day of the funeral.
So thank you Diane Ebert for the beautiful DVD photo memory of my loving father Ronald A. Fouts. You captured his past, his life, his family, his friends and his send off to his Heavenly Home.
