Welcome to my site! I'm so excited that you've taken the time to look through my images and are considering a photo session!
Photography is my creative outlet, my way of connecting to the beauty and joy all around us. Having the opportunity to capture a tender moment between mother and child or a musician's focus, energizes my soul. For the last several years, I have worked in the mental health field coaching and mentoring trauma survivors. What I have come to appreciate is the importance of nurturing relationships and the power of living an authentic life. With photography, I am able to combine my affection and respect for people with my deep appreciation for connection. I'd love the opportunity to capture YOUR connection, YOUR authenticity, YOUR spark! Having your picture taken can sometimes feel awkward and uncomfortable, but it is my goal to make this a fun and memorable experience for you!
My husband and I, along with our fur baby, Daisy, have been living in Nashville since 2011 where we are happily pursuing a creative lifestyle and are grateful for our many blessings!
"Danielle is extraordinarily easy to work with and she has a positive energy that is contagious. She is so fun and makes you feel incredibly at ease. Danielle took professional head shots for me, as well as our engagement photos. She has a way of navigating the "shoot" without making you feel like you are taking pictures...it's natural, it's easy, it's fun. And of course, as any good photographer does, she has an eye to capture the moments you want to remember without being intrusive."

"Danielle was an absolute dream to work with! As a former therapist, she just gets it--the insecurities, body image issues, and general awkwardness of having another human being take photographs of you. She made the entire process super fun! And I love how she captured my personality in her shots."
~ Kate D.
"Danielle has been my go-to photographer for over two years. She has such a great eye and always surprises me with her ability to capture the true essence of the person or subject matter in her photos. Her ability to make me feel comfortable in front of the camera is a true gift."

"Incredibly talented photographer with a fun-loving personality! Danielle makes you feel so comfortable and beautiful in photo sessions and always finds the best places to shoot! You'll not only be more than pleased with your photos, but you'll have a blast shooting with her. She makes you feel like her best friend!"

"We had an incredible experience with Danielle when she came to take our family photo. We are a HUGE group of 18 family members, with ages ranging from 2 to 65 yrs old. Danielle was engaging and made everyone feel very comfortable and kept things running smoothly, despite the token toddler meltdown by my niece. Not an easy feat, I assure you."
~ Stephanie M.
"Danielle is a warm, talented professional who will put you at ease. She has a natural gift for finding your best assets, a unique perspective, and the perfect shot- all while she makes you feel like an old friend. Danielle went ABOVE AND BEYOND to capture all that I had in mind for my artist photos AND surprised me with her own innovative concepts. Even before I received the proofs- I felt SURE I'd made a good decision to hire Danielle because she made me feel so confident, seen, heard, and validated. ....And THEN the gorgeous photos came! I immediately purchased a gift certificate for my co-writer to get studio shots with Danielle, too. (Which he also loved.) Couldn't be more pleased with this investment."
