Danielle has a way of making her subjects comfortable and happy and it shows in the moments that she captures in the photos. If you're looking for a photographer who can capture your spirit in the most beautiful candid way, Danielle is your girl! Aside from the authentically gorgeous images she produces, her positive, vibrant energy puts you at ease. 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. I'd be happy to hire her again.

Danielle was incredibly professional, thoughtful, thorough, and made me feel like I had a new BFF right from the start. I really value and appreciate working with creative's (and anyone, really), that are personable and *fun.* She even asked me to play my favorite playlist while she went to work ... How cool is that? Loved the morning — loved her. Photography for business is definitely an investment, but an important one. I feel very good about my purchase.

This woman is sunshine. I hired Danielle to shoot some professional photos for me -- ones I could use for my website, LinkedIn, short bios, you name it. The shoot was super fun and Danielle has that marvelous ability to put you at ease almost instantly. She believes in letting your natural personality shine. In short: she makes you look like the best version of yourself.

From the moment I met Danielle she greeted me with a big hug! She really took the time to get my vision by creating mood board and then researching some great spots to take my head shots at. We joked and laughed the whole time. Danielle made me feel comfortable and made me look more glamorous than I feel on the inside. She was such a sweet spirit. She's the kinda person I'd love to hang out with every day! Personality aside, she takes great pics, which duh...is obviously what we're here for!

Danielle made me comfortable in front of the camera and I actually had fun. All I really needed was a head shot, but now I have many options to use for varying purposes.

I have a background rooted in analog film so I have a real soft spot for timeless black & white imagery. As part of my edit process, I curate apx ⅓ of the images to be b&w. If you prefer color-editing only, let me know before our session.

I approach portraiture authentically so that when you see your photo, it reflects you at your best. Sometimes hair and makeup can really help bring forth that little extra bit of confidence that you might be looking for. By all means, do what feels right for you!

Cancellations happen, but don't worry, there are a few things we can do. I will be as flexible as I can be in this process. Detailed info will be in your agreement. 


Once we start planning your session, I'll send through some wardrobe inspiration and prep tips. A good starting place is always neutrals!

I don't typically offer mini sessions as I love to spend quality time with each person to create a comfortable experience for everyone and bring out authentic moments.

WHAT's THE Process?

WILL I RECEIVE COLOR & B&W?

SHOULD I GET MY HAIR &
MAKEUP DONE?

WHAT IF I HAVE TO CANCEL?

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

DO YOU OFFER MINIS?
