My name is Danielle, and I am a special-needs mom, wife, veteran, student, and photographer.
I think it's so important to know a little about the person who is behind the camera!
First-most, I'm a mommy to 3 little wild ones.
I have a 4-year old boy, Manolo, who has autism and is non-verbal. He is just the most amazing little boy you will ever meet. I've learned to live in his world and see through his eyes. It has made me the patient person that I am today. It's not always easy, but he brings so much joy to our family. I have had the pleasure of taking photos of many families who also have children with autism or special-needs.
I also have a two-year old, Ellie, who is my wildest child, and my soon-to-be one year old, Mateo or "Tay Tay".
Last but not least, my wonderful husband, Jaime, whom I've been married to for 7 years. We served together in the Air Force for 11 years before I got out to pursue my photography dream. We've created a wonderful life together, and he is just everything to me. He is also my main assistant and most of my clients have had the pleasure of meeting him! He's usually the one carrying my equipment and helping me chase after our littlest clients!
I have a special place in my heart for newborn photography and photographing little ones. It took us many years to become pregnant with our first son, Manolo. We also experienced two heart-breaking miscarriages that led us to our rainbow baby, Ellie. Our journey with infertility and loss has been challenging, but we are so grateful to be able to have three beautiful children. I know our journey is not uncommon unfortunately and may even be your journey.
No matter what your journey is, I would be honored to capture it.
As your family photographer, let me capture your family's unique personalities, maybe your growing belly as you carry precious life into this world, the first few weeks of your newborn's life, even precious milestones as your little ones grow, and your little one's toes and fingers aren't so little anymore...
I'm there for it all.
Let's make memories together.
If you think we'd make a good fit, I would LOVE to be your photographer!
