Following the homebirths of Diana’s three children, she began her journey into midwifery filming births along the way. In Austin, TX, Diana met a very pregnant Naoli Vinaver, offered a camera to her and that was the beginning of BIRTH DAY, her first professionally produced film. Today, BIRTH DAY has been seen by tens of thousands of viewers and is now part of the reporoduction exhibit in the Museum of Science, Boston.
Diana has a BA in English from Sonoma State University.

Concurrently, she and three other women offered services as “BirthWorks” for several years in and around the greater East Bay area.

Emily Payne received her BA from the University of San Diego. She has been the official photographer for LOVE DELIVERS since its inception as Sage Femme. Her full service, spacious studio is located in San Francisco. The studio participates in community events and supports organizations and local businesses of all kinds. They are careful to patronize photo labs that use minimal chemicals and paper with the least amount of silver.
"You will feel comfortable and safe coming to the studio with the newest member of your family! The studio has room to change, nurse and relax. We schedule portrait sessions allowing plenty of time for naps, crying, and feeding! In general, it is a comfortable and positive experience every time you come to the studio!"
