Hello! I'm Danielle, a self-taught photographer who has been wielding a camera for the last 6 years. While attending college to be a L&D nurse, military life took me in a different direction and I became a photographer instead. In 2013 I photographed my first birth. I was hooked! My passion for birth and documentary-style family photography has only continued to grow since then.
I specialize in photo-journalistic photography, or story-telling. A picture that will remind you not only of what your life looked like, but what it felt like. The seemingly mundane moments that suddenly became memories. Practically speaking, this means that I photograph:
- Families in labor and birth
Mamas and babies breastfeeding (or baby-wearing!)
Families learning the new "normal routine" with a newborn
Families in their home or favorite place, doing ordinary things together
Families being reunited after several months apart
This type of photography has been so life-giving for me as an artist. I am confident that I'm giving my clients something truly beautiful, valuable, and heartfelt.
I'd love to collaborate with you to tell the stories unfolding in your own family.
A few tidbits about me, since photographers are real people too!
- I've lived and traveled all over the world. So far I've traveled to 23 different US states, and have lived on three different continents. Last year we moved from South Korea to Germany, where I currently reside. I love traveling when I'm not living that on-call life!
- My husband and I have a golden retriever/chow mix that we rescued over 9 years ago from the shelter. He looks like a lion... or a 50 pound Pomeranian. You decide.
- I'm also a henna artist! I love doing floral henna bellies.
- Ethnic food gives me life.
