I’m Diana Henneman, a modern lifestyle photographer located in the San Francisco Bay Area - I feel so fortunate to call this beautiful place my home!

i believe in love. 

I am happily married to the love of my life and my best friend, Nick - not only is he my rock and my biggest fan, he just happens to be my high school sweetheart, too. Momma to my two little girls - the loves of my life - they are my greatest joy and source of inspiration for Modern Heirloom Photography which I founded in 2012.

When I’m not photographing families, you can find me out on an adventure exploring new places with my family, obsessing over my latest thrift store finds, or wandering the local antiques faire. You can catch me riding around our quaint little island city on my beloved beach cruiser or nurturing my garden - including my latest project - a unique living succulent wall! I’m the “Martha” of my group – I love all the details of entertaining and getting my hands dirty with my latest DIY project.

yes, it's true, I'll hug you the first time we meet.

The relationships I build with my clients mean so much to me and many have become treasured friends. Being a part of a family’s journey, watching their family grown through my lens, telling their story with my images brings me unmeasurable joy.

The absolute best part of being a photographer is getting the opportunity to meet new people! I love capturing the true essence of who a person is in my images. As a lifestyle photographer, I am driven by real moments with genuine people.

let me tell your story! 

Your photographs are a priceless investment in your family, your future – if my images resonate with you, send me a message, I would love the opportunity to work with you and your family.

xo, Diana
