I photograph life’s stories. I’m a brand nerd and perpetual dreamer with a passion for travel and a delicious cocktail. And I’m a photographer obsessed with images that capture the spirit and energy of our experiences. Whether it’s a big celebration toasted with champagne, or a quiet moment of connection, there is nothing more powerful than the real thing. If you’re into candid and authentic photos that celebrate the beauty in the everyday and the story behind every person, keep scrolling.

"I know photography is worth a lot, there is nothing better than a good image to help tell a story! Danielle is absolutely wonderful! Her photography is excellent. She is very thoughtful and attentive and makes sure to capture a variety of images. I can't recommend her enough! She truly stands out from the rest."

"I can't recommend her enough!"

"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."

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

"Danielle is such a joy to work with. What I appreciated the most was her calm nature, thoughtful listening, and excitement to create. She brought all of our collaboration/ideas/styles to life and delivered images that were beyond my expectations." 

"Danielle is such a joy to work with."

"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."
