I'm Danielle! I'm a wife, a mom of two pre-schoolers, and a marketing professional. Life can be chaotic but it sure is sweet.
I'm your typical mom with a camera that fell hard into a photography obsession. Ever see a mom in the grocery store with a camera? That was probably me. I want to document it all, the big, the small and everything in between. I feel like every time I blink my kids are getting bigger. One would assume that photos and videos would be for the parents and grandparents but I truly feel it is the best gift we can give our children. Years from now, these memories will be everything to them.
I want to help families record their story.
I was asked by a good friend to document the birth of her new baby. I was over the moon with excitement to be able to document something so intimate and special. I started studying birth photographers and inadvertently stumbled into the world of film making and I must say...that was a game changer for me. I watched my first family keepsake film and found myself in tears for a family I never met and made by someone I never heard of. The power of video is simply amazing. I spent the next few months cramming for the "big test". I studied and practiced morning, noon and night. To everyone's surprise, little baby Maxwell came almost 2 weeks early and I truly felt so humbled to get to experience and document the miracle of child birth. I also got to deliver the video in person to my dear friend and I'm pretty sure there wasn't a dry eye in the room. I felt so honored to be able to deliver such a gift to her.
Being able to photograph families and deliver candid, authentic and genuine connections in photos or film is what truly motivates me.
"Danielle has captured some of my favorite photos of my family. From 24 hours after the birth of my son to just playing in the park, I couldn't ask for a better photographer to document how we felt at that moment in time. But the video she made was unbelievable. I will always have those tiny voices and laughter to remember because of her. Her video brought out so much emotion in everyone who watched it. I'm so grateful to her for capturing this time so beautifully. My only regret is not having her there to document the birth of my son. I would highly recommend Danielle to anyone looking for video or photos."

Capturing life as it happens, the big, small and in between is everything to me.
Here are a few of my reasons why.
