Life is timestamped by moments and days we will always remember. Events we will never experience again but will always cherish. The promise of a forever in shared vows or the creation of a tiny life that taught you the meaning of unconditional love. And even, ordinary days that are actually deeply beautiful. Navigating his crazy ride that essentially slips by; the beauty in photography. A glimpse of a moment, captured indefinitely. 

Welcome

The little moments + the big feels

OUR PHILOSOPHY

we want your experience to be everything + more 

If this is your first time hiring a photographer, we want to make sure you get the best experience possible.  Our team will make sure you feel comfortable + more importantly, make sure your session is everything you dreamed of.  

Although we want to capture some timeless images, making you look and smile on demand is not exactly our style.  Whether this is a lifestyle family session, an in-hospital Fresh 48, or your wedding day, we want your images to capture as much emotion and detail as possible.  We will guide you when the moment is right but the beauty in our session unfolds naturally. We wont stand behind a camera and count to 3. We want your images to capture more than that.  We truly don't believe the  'perfect portrait' is created on command. Some of our most treasured work consists of the little moments + in betweens.  The details that tell your story. Raw, real emotions. We want you to look back and 'feel' your images for decades to come.

"Since the day I met Dani and starting to plan out everything from my engagement to my wedding, including my daughter’s 6months pictures to her 1 years old pictures. She was amazing and when it came to my wedding day she just wasn’t a photographer, she was a friend to help if needed and even talked me through some parts of the wedding. If you get the chance to book Dani for anything I would highly recommend it!"

" Amazing photographer! I am able to highly recommend Dani for newborn photography. I had never met Dani prior to our session but she made me feel comfortable and confident trusting her with my 2 week old baby. She was very hands on and it was literally the first time I was able to sit back and relax! As you can see her stunning work speaks for itself. Thank you Dani for capturing our sweet girl we can’t wait for another session!"

"Dani was amazing! We used her to shoot both our engagement and wedding photos. She delivered a gallery filled with so many amazing shots! Dani was super easygoing and really listened to what Kyle and I saw as the vision for our wedding. We mostly communicated via email given that I live in Albany but was getting married in Skaneateles. She was always responsive and gave helpful suggestions on other vendors and planning the day of timeline. As the bride there are so many moments you don't get to see but thanks to Dani it's like I was there! She was great at getting our bridal party to feel relaxed and comfortable taking photos. Overall she had such a great attitude and her passion for photography really comes through! Can't wait to use her again!"

What a simple-yet very difficult questions to answer.  Rich color tones, clean smooth lines, minimalistic, warmth + depth.  Style conveys many meanings.  When it comes to capturing the images: authentic + real.  As far as Dani's editing style goes: she is neither "light + airy" or "moody".  She is a little mix of both.  Her images convey the talent of dancing along the fine line between two very opposing styles.
