Hello, I’m Danielle.

My interest in the family dynamic goes back as far as I can remember. I even originally set out to be an OBGYN. I realized that my love of the miracle of life and journey of family were best served from afar in an observant and creative capacity. There is something truly special about being a part of such profound and special moments. Whether I’m photographing a birth, your maternity belly bump or your brand new babies, I’m always so humbled and honored that you allow me to capture this most special time in your life.

Northern Virginia has so many wonderful people, so much history and an amazing culture in the DC Metro area. I have a residential studio in Gainesville, VA and I love creating timeless images for my clients either in my studio or in your own home.  As a Georgia native and a University of Georgia Alum, I am a true Southern Girl. My husband, three sons and I proudly call Charleston, SC our home base, but as a military family, we are now enjoying living in the Washington DC area.

I pride myself with capturing the smallest and most precious moments that are few and fast. My greatest pleasure is presenting a family with these memories frozen in time so that they will always remember exactly how they were feeling. The love is palpable! My photography sessions are much like me, honest, laid back, and above all REAL! My friends and family are my life and the knowledge of that special bond manifests itself in my work and philosophy.

The things I love:

Let the beauty of what you love be what you do.


As a mom of 3, I understand how important it is to capture these fleeting days. As they say, the days are long but the years are short. It goes by in the blink of an eye and before you know it they are these almost grown humans. I look back on the pictures I have of my own kids and I’m always drawn to the images that I try to capture for my clients. The unposed moments, the unique expressions and traits that you one day might forget, their personality that comes through even as a newborn. It’s all a part of your real story.

I look forward to meeting you and your family and helping to capture those priceless memories!
