In January, Diana photographed the The 2014 BIG Event. The Big Event celebrates the entrepreneurial spirit and is  Sacramento’s largest motivational business event.  The Big event of 2014 was focused on bringing together motivation and business by sharing personal stories about struggle, success & their strategies for getting through both.

 This year the Big Event sponsored  “It Takes Guts”.

“Two Mamas On A Mission” started the non-profit “It Takes Guts” to help find a cure for the rare auto immune diseases that affect their children & many more. We believe that we are on this journey for a reason. Life has it’s twists and turns. We never would have chosen this journey, but it was given to us. We are passionate about helping others maneuver through the uncharted waters of rare autoimmune diseases. Our children don’t fit into a perfect “Diagnosis” package all tied up with a bow (oh, how we’ve wished this was the case). Their illnesses require out of the box thinking from caregivers and doctors. Thankfully both kids have an amazing team of physicians that have done that for both of them but it also helps that they have two bulldoggy moms that will never let them fall through the cracks! Many times we’ve reminded each other of the simple words, “Whatever it takes.”  – Jessica Bracy & Tami Fandrei

Brian’s review on Yelp: “I hired Diana again this year for our annual business event with over 400 people and she was amazing.  As always, easy to work with, needs no direction and captures the moment perfectly.  This was a special night and there was nobody other than her I would want to capture it.  Thanks for another great job Diana!” Check out Diana Miller Photography on Yelp!
