Quanta are packets of energy, while a photon is a packet of light from electromagnetic radiation, or a type of quanta. Both are forms of energy distilled into a "packet" and both imply that energy exists in discrete units. Quanta is just a broader term for all energy but a photon refers specifically to electromagnetic energy!
