So you want to know about me? Great! I’m flattered! Well … my name is Danielle! I am married and we have daughters who are currently ages 6 and 8. I started this business way back in 2006! When I first began I had no children and all of my customers were older than me. Now most of them are younger!
Here are the questions I get asked the most:
Why lifestyle photography?
Lifestyle photography speaks to me. And if you’re here it probably speaks to you too. We all have those photos of the family all perfectly posed and smiling at the camera. I’ve got them. You’ve got them. And they’re great for remembering what people looked like. But do they evoke any emotion? Not really! In the pictures I take … your kid may be covered in dirt but it will make you say “I remember when”! Your child may have her tongue out but it will make you laugh. You may be reading a book to your son in a rocking chair and in 15 years you’ll look at that picture and say “remember how we used to do that every night?” For us, lifestyle photography captures true moments that you will truly appreciate in the years to come.
How long have you been in business?
11 years!! I have learned SO much in the past 11 years … from how to run a business to how to deal with customers to how to take better pictures! Sometimes I think back to how my sessions used to be to how they are now (much smoother, easier, faster) and the difference is astounding. I am always learning and growing!
Why did you choose photography?
Did I choose photography or did it choose me? Ever since I was a kid and somebody gave me my first camera I was that kid who always had her little point-and-shoot camera in hand. Something about having those moments captured on film (because way-back-when, it was film!) spoke to me. I could spend hours pouring over old photos. I want to capture those fleeting moments for everyone. It goes by so fast.
What is your favorite thing to photograph?
Well if it isn’t obvious … kids! Kids are such naturals in front of the camera. They don’t act stiff or fake. They just do their thing. They run and play and have a blast and that is my absolute favorite thing to photograph. Capturing kids in their element. And yes I will get down on the wet ground or wade into a creek to get the perfect photos for you.
Thank you for reading!! Please contact me for any more information and to set up a session. I am happy to answer any questions you may have!
