Hi, I'm Daniele
As a mother myself of two kids who are now teenagers (yikes!), I know how fast our time with little ones goes. Remember that old saying? 'The days are long but the years are short'. I heard that when my kids were little, but at the time I couldn't wrap my head around how true it was. Now that my children are older I feel like I have more perspective on how fast the years with little ones crawling around at your feet really do fly by.
My goal with the images that I create is to preserve how your current everyday feels. This time in your life will go by in a blink and I believe it’s so important to capture it. It’s the tiny toes, silly giggles, popsicle stained faces, and sweet nose nuzzles. These are the precious seconds in time that will tug at your heartstrings years from now – the moments that become a part of your story.

“The photographs turned out beyond beautiful”
I always feel awkward in front of a camera, and with Daniele, I have never felt more beautiful. She put me at ease and gave me the perfect amount of guidance so that I knew what to do without feeling posed. Some people think a "photographer is a photographer" but that is not the case, especially with Daniele. The photographs turned out beyond beautiful and I love how everything looks so soft and magical. All of my family wanted copies to frame and both Charlotte (my new baby) and I will treasure these forever. Choosing Daniele will be the best thing you ever did to make your beautiful memories last a lifetime.

“every picture is a little piece of your heart on paper”
Daniele really knows how to capture a moment, and it is a true gift that she has. Every picture is a little piece of your heart on paper. Daniele has the most unique displays and picture books I've ever seen. It is such a joy to pull out my photo brag book and share it with others. Daniele is very easy to work with and the kids really respond to her. If you are looking to capture a memory and a feeling, not a studio background, you need to schedule a session with her. You'll be impressed!

“I am beyond grateful to have found you as our photographer”
Just a quick note to say thank you so much for our beautiful pictures! You have done another fantastic job of capturing the best pictures of my family. We especially love all of Ryder's pictures – I honestly think that all of his best pictures have always come from a shoot with you, so for that, I'm forever grateful to work with you.
I can't say enough great things about your work, and I am beyond grateful to have found you as our photographer.
Till next time!
