I'm Danielle, but you can call me Dani. 

I would describe myself as a creative conceptual goofball who loves my family, cooking and making adventures big and small. I currently live in the south suburbs of Chicago with my husband Corey, our dog Wrigley and our soon to be son! 

I've been a professional photographer for over 10 years now photographing weddings, brand and product shots and basically everything in between. At the end of the day after working with multiple families, documenting their lives in different stages, I've found that my true passion is working with families large and small. I firmly believe moments like celebrating your one year wedding anniversary, or having a baby or if your baby is graduating college all deserve to be documented. My passion is to document these moments for you in a way that can be showcased for generations to come.

You Might Be My Client If...

You deserve to feel confident. 

You’re not just getting a photographer who tells you to stand there and smile, you’re gaining a new friend who is going to capture you BEAUTIFULLY in a moment that you will want to remember forever. You’re not just posed into an awkward or uncomfortable position in front of my camera. Instead, you’re confidently directed in a way that YOUR reactions and personality shine through! We're going to run around, goof off and have freakin' fun while we're together.

Let's get this party started.

Whether I’m capturing a rambunctious gaggle of siblings or a quiet moment with a brand new baby, I’m after the genuine moments. You’ll find no rigid poses or forced smiles in my galleries, just real joy, real love, and real families. 


I believe that memories aren’t made in a stuffy photo studio. They’re made in the wild and wonderful moments of everyday life! Let’s ditch the rulebook, open the floodgate of possibilities  to capture what makes life beautiful. Family photography, lifestyle or anything in between, let’s capture real smiles, belly laughs, messy hair and all!

What I Offer

From start to finish I seek to give you the most genuine and enjoyable experience possible.

When working with me you're guaranteed a quick turn around time with photos to last you a lifetime.


Great Question
thanks for asking

How would you describe your style?

I would descibe my style as a balance of editorial documentary with an artistic intentionality. I definitely have a candid approach to documenting stories. Of course I always knock out all of the formal shot lists, but those authentic moments are what I love documenting to make your magic moment truly fit to who you are.

What do your packages include?

I provide a variety of different packages to fit your needs. If you're looking for an adventure session it's broken down by time, location and other details. These types of shoots could include engagement, family, maternity, newborn, the sky is the limit! ​

How long till we get our photos?

Turn around time is typically around 2 weeks - TOPS. 


When working with me, you will always receive a full digital gallery of your edited images. With any package you have with me, you will always have full printing rights. (that's right, you can do whatever you want with them!). 

How do travel fees work?

There is no additional travel fees within your package, it's always all inclusive.

What kind of gear do you use?


How many images do you deliver?

Adventure sessions can range from 8-80+ photos depending on what specifications you have for your session, the more time we spend together, typically the more photos you'll receive! 

Do I have to order prints through you?

Not at all, and there's no pressure to! You are given all rights to your photos to do whatever you would like with them. BUT when you receive your gallery from me you are able to order products right from your gallery if you choose.

Okay! I want to book, what do I do next?

Send an email to and to work out a quote to fit your specific needs, whether that be for a family shoot or elopement. From there, a signed contract and a 50% non-refundable retainer exclusively holds your time slot. 

Have more questions or want a quote? 

If you've made it to this part of my website, it means that you've in one way or another connected with my work - and that alone means the world! Whether you're wanting to book a session, work on a project together, ask about pricing, or get to know me a little better, I'm excited to know your name & hear your story!
