I hope you are all having a great weekend!

To add to the fun, I am doing a GIVEAWAY for one Mini Portrait Session! Head on over to my Facebook Page to enter!

And because these photos of my two kids in a “rocket ship” are cracking me up, here ya go. My daughter is full of sass! Look at that face! 😉


Deadline to enter is Monday at 12pm. Winner will be announced Monday afternoon! Good luck and thanks for joining!

Welcome to my new space!

Welcome to my new website and blog!

This is super exciting for me as this has been a work in progress for some time and is quite frankly long overdue. I wanted my website to reflect not only my style but complement the style of my artwork as well. Classic, fresh and beautiful. And my husband said it looks “fun”.:)What do you think?! (only tell me if it’s nice. k?)

When someone is researching who they want to trust with their family’s portraits, a website is their first impression of your work. As a photographer, your website is your face!

(Side note:: The reason I put makeup on when simply going to the grocery store is because I will, without a doubt, run into a client if I DON’T put any make up on. Without. a. doubt.)

Anyways, some fun things to point out–my blog is now located on my website! This makes for an easy way for my clients to see all of my work in one space. Cool right? Maybe it’s just me…but I’m geeking out!

Another exciting thing is that I am now strictly photographing Portraits, Births, and Fresh 48 Sessions. All of my galleries are updated and you can view all the pretties on my website!

If you’re thinking “Oh my gosh! Danielle took my beautiful family’s portraits and they aren’t on her site!” Well, I’m slowly adding to my galleries as this takes time and I am in the middle of my busy season. So, thanks for your patience. I get to take photos of so many of you pretty people, how can I possibly showcase all of you?! 😉

Thank you so much for you support of my business! I can not thank you enough or with the right words but I truly wouldn’t have this business if it weren’t for YOU trusting me with you memories. You’re great! I am very, very thankful and blessed to have such a fun, thoughtful, beautiful group of people backing me! I continually thank God for this space here. It has opened many doors and fostered even more relationships that wouldn’t have otherwise happened.

With that said, don’t hesitate to email me with any questions that you might have regarding your Portrait or Photography needs.


See you around…(that wasn’t meant to sound creepy)

Well, all that is really going through my mind is how grateful I am to have been able to make it in time for baby’s arrival! This sweet boy made a beautifully quick entrance into the world–one that I can confidently say none of us were expecting.
And I often say that I will let my photos tell the story because words don’t quite suffice. There is just too much emotion, too much goodness.
Congratulations to this sweet family on the arrival of your precious baby boy. Thank you for inviting me into your family–I adore you all!

I mean, it’s crazy. You’re gorgeous and being a momma looks good on you.

Broderick:: First Day of Preschool 2015

We woke up today super excited for Preschool to start! This is Brody’s second year of “preschool”. It all started with a group of moms who wanted to add a little structure to our week with our toddlers. It has now evolved into an organized hour of class each week with 7 (almost) 3 year olds! 
I have to admit that I was pretty bossy while taking these pictures–we were running out the door and Brinley was on my heels. I am so glad we took these photos, though. I love seeing his little almost 3 year old personality. He’s such a silly, sensitive, handsome boy.
 What do you want to be when you grow up? “A Spiderman.”
 What is your favorite thing about Preschool? “I don’t know.”
 How old are you? (holds up three fingers) “THREE!” (He’ll be 3 November 20th.)
 What makes you happy? “When I listen and obey.” GREAT ANSWER!!:)
 And little miss Brinley wanted to be in a few photos with her big bro.
We are so grateful for our special group of 3 year olds and moms. Brody did fantastic at sitting criss-cross-applesauce today! I love seeing these kids learn. I am definitely blessed to have friends who are passionate about teaching!!
Cheers to another great year of Preschool!
