Hiiiiiiiii!


I've loved children for almost as long as I've been alive. It's been sort of a natural progression for me throughout my life to not only have children of my own but to work closely with them guiding, teaching, and nurturing our most impressionable little beings. For the past 15 years I've been working directly with newborns and toddlers as an Early Childhood Educator and private Nanny.  I'd be lying if I said it wasn't challenging at times but it was also undeniably some of the most rewarding work I've ever done, and that's the part that kept me going all those years. 


Now at 43 this is me merging my baby loving education skills with my baby loving photography skills and this is my magic! With each family I work with I provide the same level of care, patience and kindness at each session and really take the time to get to know you and your little one to create your monumental first photos of your baby. For me, taking photos is like relaxing in a hammock at the beach. I try to transfer that same calming energy into each session and take things at an easy pace to create a peaceful, comfortable and safe environment for both baby and you. 


I'm blessed to also be a mom. I have two grown children (son and daughter) and three step-daughters. Last year my husband and I became first time grandparents to the most beautiful and sweet baby girl and we couldn't be happier! It’s amazing to watch our children grow and begin to have life experiences and children of their own. Some of my family now calls me, "Granny Danie", and I'm not quite used to that one just yet. :)


Thank you for the opportunity to capture your squishy tiny human's first moments. I am both honored and excited to create beautiful and unique photos of your baby.


Please reach out if you have any questions. I look forward to working with you soon!

I don't know what I'd do if I couldn't run and exercise. A true lifesaver and where all good things in my life begin.
