I’m Cary. I am the face behind Cary Diaz Photography. I am also the crazy busy, but very blessed mom of 3 beautiful children and the wife of an amazing man, who pushed me to start this little “dream” of mine and tolerates my endless daily babbles and late nights drinking coffee and editing.
If I’m not off shooting some incredible people or editing late at night, you can usually find me picking up Starbucks, dropping off or picking up one of my little monsters, visiting Disney, on my iPhone, shopping for a new bag or finding any excuse to go to Target and spending far more than I should!

I have this really weird string and jewelry phobia (I know, it’s really strange), hate bananas, love soda, wear glasses (ALL THE TIME), LOVE cheese, get insanely frustrated taking photos of my own children, love Buttercream Cupcakes, can touch my tongue to my nose, have my hair in a bun 99.9% of my life, have a 12 year gap between my brother and I (I’m the baby), have read the Twilight books 4 times, yet I don’t read much otherwise, and watch too many reality TV shows (some guilty pleasures: America’s Next Top Model, So You Think You Can Dance, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Say Yes to the Dress, and so many more!). I spent 10 years in college (yes, this isn’t a joke) studying to be a doctor, pharmacist, advertiser, teacher, and english major (I may be forgetting one) only to find out that my true passion was Photography.
This is where you come in! I genuinely LOVE what I do. I experience so many great memories with amazing people, and I have so much fun doing it. Pictures are EXTREMELY important to me. My children’s photos are my most prized possesions. When they are more grown up than I ever want them to be, I want to remember their incredible smiles and their oh-so-adorable faces. I treat every one of my clients with the upmost priority, because I know how important the pictures I take are for you.
Clients “search” for their perfect photographer. That perfect fit is so important not just for the client but for the photographer as well. I want to fall in love with each of my clients, their families and their stories. I want to capture that couple that can’t stop laughing and can’t keep their hands off of each other, the mischievous child that laughs that slightly evil belly laugh when he or she is caught doing something they shouldn’t be doing, but gives the warmest hugs and looks to their parents, and the excitement of a teenager reaching a birthday or graduation milestone, and their emotional parents not quite ready for their unavoidable but bright future.
My love for photography began many years ago, while I shadowed my father, a professional photographer during the film era. I couldn’t stop noticing how happy and timeless the children and couples he photographed were. He was capturing mini pieces of their history, and his clients were forever grateful. He truly inspired me to capture life’s most memorable moments, telling a story with each shot by emphasizing that momentary glance, not missing an intoxicating smile, and sharing in all laughs. I embarked on this crazy journey in 2010 a few months after my son was born. He inspired me to be a better person and accomplish things I never thought possible. With that in mind, I started Cary Diaz Photography to capture your story of what inspires you.
