My name is Danielle (or Danni- whichever you prefer) and…
I'm the woman behind the camera! I'm a natural light photographer and instructor with a serious love for color harmony. I'm based in the Washington, DC area and I specialize in lifestyle portrait and business photography; I also teach photographers looking to improve their natural light portraiture, and offer limited wedding photography services. Take a look around and if you'd like to schedule a session, I'd love to hear from you!
I am a natural light photographer specializing in portrait photography! On the lifestyle side I work with families, couples, models, seniors, etc... On the business side, I work with local companies, small businesses, and creative professionals looking for a warm and personal look for their business photos. I shoot a few, intimate weddings a year, and I teach as well! I offer 2 photography mentoring programs- one for photographers looking to improve their natural light photography and the other for photographers looking to build or improve their photography businesses.
"Sometimes when you meet people in real life after you've followed them online, you're either underwhelmed or disappointed. I can confirm that Danielle is a light on and offline! She was so easy going, patient, and professional. I felt encouraged working with her and following her lead that even though I'm not a model, I could take a stunning photo! Lol. She made the process comfortable and fun. I was so impressed with how she found the perfect backdrop to match my outfit! It was pretty magical.”
"My experience with Danielle as a photographer was absolutely outstanding! Out of all of my experiences with product shoots and lifestyle photography, Danielle stands miles above the rest. She takes so much care to make sure that you’re comfortable and at ease throughout the entire shoot. Outside of ALL of that her craft is amazing and her photos are stunning! I HIGHLY recommend DFinney Photography.”
