what's up,

i'm dani

After moving from the Bay Area to Long Beach for college, my photography journey began when I got lucky with a really good Groupon deal, and I got my first camera to take photos for a university club I was part of (shoutout to all my PAC people if you're reading this). I really would have never predicted that I would ever call myself a photographer, but I owe a bunch of thanks to that college club for helping me find out that it's one of my biggest passions in life.

It's hard to express how rewarding this job is - from meeting your little ones after capturing your maternity photos, or cheering you on when you pop a bottle of champagne to celebrate your graduation, to helping with your proposal then watching you walk down the aisle. I mean it when I say I treat it as the greatest honor to get to document your most important moments, and I take every photo with the intention that you'll be showing them to your future grandkids someday.

When I'm not taking photos, you'll most likely find me outside - some of my fave activities are hiking, scuba diving, and long boarding. Another one of my professional aspirations is to work in ocean conservation! If you're a fellow outdoor adventure-lover, you've come to the right place.

"If you want a stress-free and fun filled shoot, book with Danielle! She was so professional, SO fun, worked so fast, and produced the most beautiful pictures. She made everything so easy! It really brought a lot of stress off of my shoulders. THANK YOU DANIELLE!"
