May Cover Artist: Diane Fenlason

Diane Fenlason was born and raised in Pennsylvania and moved to Bozeman in 2008 when she married her best friend, Brian, a Montana native. Together, they have four children. She loves spending time with her family, meeting friends for coffee at one of our locally-owned coffee shops, being active in her church, playing the piano, and hiking the trails.

She is a Branding and Family Photographer who also enjoys capturing nature and landscapes she encounters in Bozeman and beyond.

Diane’s style of portrait photography is authentic, documentary, and vibrant. She wants people to feel a connection to the images she creates and use them to preserve precious memories with their loved ones. She also has a passion for helping local businesses to reach their ideal clients through photographic storytelling. It’s all about the relationship she has with her clients and knowing how to bring out their best while keeping it real.

Diane Fenlason Photography began in 2016 with a broad approach, shooting everything, including weddings. But 2020 caused her to slow down and evaluate what brings her the most joy when it comes to working behind her camera. So, she has specialized to Business and Personal Branding and Family Lifestyle Portraiture. Each of these allow her to highlight the story behind the picture, and to really bring out the heart of a family or small business. Montana people love seeing the heart and soul of others. They value being authentic. That is what Diane strives to bring through her camera.

The pandemic has been tough on everyone. But this refocus of her business is a blessing she hopes will translate into helping families document “making it through together”. She also looks forward to helping many local business owners uplevel their connection with the community and increase their revenue. She is working on a website relaunch that will help her service local business owners more effectively.

If you enjoy her photos of nature, she has prints and canvases available for purchase. You can reach her through her website, or email:
