My son Joseph now almost five was Dana's very first baby session. She did an amazing job and it's been wonderful to see her grow as a photographer. She offers a very laid back and casual energy and we love that she allows us to motivate the session while offering her expert guidance and artistry. I so appreciate that when working with her I always feel relaxed and unhurried and her work so beautifully shows our true and honest family dynamic. My loyalty and love for Dana and her work only grew as we got to know her as a person. She really truly cares about her clients - even offered to do mini sessions with the proceeds to benefit our son Joshua who currently needs a kidney transplant. Her kindness and grace abound and that shows in her work!

I originally chose Dana to photograph my family because I wanted affordable family photos and to help a friend with the start of her small business. This was at the beginning of Dana's career; we have since had multiple family sessions with her and have loved all of the images! She always keeps us coming back for more. We love the spontaneous shots and real moments of life. And she's always SO patient with the kids! We've had 8 sessions with her and can't wait for the next!

I originally booked Dana on a recommendation from a friend, and after seeing her portfolio I knew we'd be happy with the photos she captured for us. She is experienced and as a mother herself so very patient in working with the attention and moods of little ones. Even if my kids aren't doing exactly what I want them to, she finds a way to capture their beauty and the moments we share as a real family. Dana always asks if there are any special poses or photos we want before finishing up AND never rushes through! I love that she takes the time to ensure she gets the perfect shot and all sorts of moments for us to gush over!
