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.
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!
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!
Approximately two weeks after your session your images will be available for online viewing. You will receive an-mail stating that your photos are ready to be viewed along with a password to access your gallery.
Your viewing gallery will be live for seven days, and it is recommended that every effort be made to place your order within that time frame. Once your gallery expires there is a $45 reload fee to publish your gallery for an additional seven days.
All the images from your session are available for purchase in both print and digital format. Each image is meticulously enhanced to ensure that your prints will be stunning.
Child and family sessions last around an hour, newborns may last 2 or more.
Come with a happy attitude and be ready to play! Seriously...even if everything went wrong the morning of your session. You know those days-your baby had a major diaper blow out, your toddler can't find her shoes. As parents we've all been there. Just relax, leave it behind you, and look forward to spending some quality time with your family. There are no rules at a photo session and Daniele likes to keep it fun and carefree for the kids. Embrace that and play along…you’ll love the results!
Before your session Daniele will work with you to choose a location that fits the desired look and feel that you're hoping to capture in the resulting images. She'll make suggestions on what to wear for the best results (Hello, Pinterest!), and will offer advise on the best time of day for the session to take place. Most sessions are conducted mid-morning or late afternoon, as that is when lighting conditions are best. Please keep in mind your child’s temperament and nap times when deciding on a time. Most children do much better in the mid-morning hours. Daniele likes to allow plenty time for play so that children are comfortable with the photographic process, and no one will feel rushed.
The best time to schedule your newborn session is while you’re still pregnant. Because your little one’s arrival is unpredictable, Daniele will pencil your due date into her calendar, and will leave room for your session in her schedule around that time. Once you are home from the hospital, a set date and time will be established.
If your baby is already here, please call or email to inquire about session availability, as Daniele does try to fit newborns into her schedule whenever possible.
Daniele prefers to photograph newborns during their first two weeks of life, with the most optimal time being between 5-10 days. During this time babies are still blissfully sleepy and can easily curl into poses. After two weeks baby acne, molting, and colic can start to become an issue.
The preferred location for newborn sessions is Daniele’s natural light studio. It is a warm and inviting space and all the necessities are close at hand. During your session Daniele will follow baby’s lead with plenty of time for feedings, diaper changes and soothing. Because of this, it is not uncommon for newborn sessions to last two to three hours, sometimes more. Please plan accordingly.
Newborns are Daniele’s favorite subject to photograph as she finds the opportunity to document brand new life oh-so-inspiring. The newborn stage is precious and it is fleeting. In the whirlwind of sleepless nights and groggy days, your newborn images will become a treasured remembrance of this sweet and short-lived time.
Daniele's studio is in her home, and as such directions are not posted on this website. Once your session is booked directions will be sent to you via email.
Because of the custom nature of her work, Daniele only books a limited number of sessions each month. There are certain times of the year that are busier than others. Late spring and early fall are almost always booked with a waiting list, so it is never a bad idea to get a spot as quickly as possible. Depending on time of year, please be sure to schedule at least 3 to 6 weeks in advance to ensure an appointment.
