"Honestly I love our photos from this shoot! I would do it again in a heartbeat! And plan to. Danielle was great with the kids, the photos turned out beautiful and I hope we can do it again every year! My only fear was how my kids would behave. But Danielle was wonderful and the kids did really good! When I saw my images in our gallery I couldn’t stop looking through them. It was like Christmas morning! So much fun to see what was captured."

"I hope we can do it again every year!"

"Danielle was so easy to work with. She made us feel so comfortable, and was SO good at directing our family and making sure everyone was engaged. I am generally kind of camera shy so I was worried that would come across in photos and it didn't at all! I felt so comfortable. It was such a fun experience going through the photos. Our jaws dropped and eyes filled with tears when we first saw the preview and then we spent hours flipping through the gallery just stunned at how beautiful everything turned out. Everything was worth it - if anything I wish we had booked more hours for the surrounding events."

"Our jaws dropped and eyes filled with tears..."

"If you're looking for a photographer who can capture your spirit in the most beautiful candid way, Danielle is your girl! She has a way with connecting with her clients on photo shoots and making them feel comfortable and special even those like me who don't feel so photogenic. Danielle's images have helped build my new home interior decorating business and visually tell my brand's story. She's a great collaborator... she listened to my needs and vision and executed beyond my expectations."

"She listened to my needs and vision and executed beyond my expectations."

"Besides taking vivid and emotion filled photos, Danielle makes you feel like a star as she gushes and marvels at the wedding couple on their special day. You don't even notice Danielle capturing every angle throughout the day, (except for the couple shots after the ceremony), and then a month later you get the collection of photos and experience a rush of euphoria at the beauty of your wedding day. I give her my highest recommendation!"

"I give her my highest recommendation!"

"Hire Danielle! She's a gem! Her infectious enthusiasm and spirit made our experience, and you'll love the beautiful results. We wanted a maternity session that felt candid and authentic to us and she delivered what we hoped for and more. We will treasure our photos for years to come and we hope to work with Danielle again for future family photos!"
