As a former preschool teacher, I have a special ability to bring out joyful moments within your family. Force your two-year-old to sit perfectly still? Absolutely not! I'll guide you through prompts to create images that make sense and show your connection. Your images will feel realistic, happy, and full of laughter. With families, my posing philosophy revolves around intentional movement and play, which is why it's impossible to take "bad" pictures. 

LET'S DO IT!

what you can expect from the family experience

meaningful poses

This is my job and I'm absolutely so in love with it. I hold these moments close to my heart and I never miss a moment. You have permission to fully trust me! My goal is for every client to be fully present in their session and not worry about a thing. You can trust me to choose beautiful locations, find the best lighting, and never miss a photo opportunity. You can focus on interacting with your loved ones while I prioritize the details.

All of my clients are provided several resources to make the entire process easy. As a DCP client, you'll receive full assistance planning your session including a styling guide based on the location you select. I generally recommend between 45-60 minutes for family sessions, and up to three hours for newborns.

01 inquire

You're ready! I'll send over a contract and payment details. A retainer and signed contract are both required to consider your session or wedding booked. The retainer goes towards your collection total.

02 onboarding

Planning, planning, planning... But in a simple way! I'll provide location recommendations for your engagement session, a style guide, and some tips when planning your shoot. All I need from you is the season you'd like for the session and we'll set it up! 

03 prep

Next comes your session! Come with an open mind and enjoy it! My philosophy is capturing moments, not stuffy poses. I encourage everyone to interact, to play, to allow the kids to run, and to just enjoy some time together. Shoots can range from 60-90 minutes.

04 photo time

All of your images will be delivered to you within three weeks of your family session. Your gallery reaches you online, and full printing rights are included in every family collection! The best place to order prints is directly through me.

We truly loved having Danielle as our photographer for engagement photos. She was able to coordinate all of the locations and timing perfectly for a summer sunset. 

everything was natural

wait for her to photograph our big day!
