I value family, and as your photographer, I vow to be someone you trust and feel comfortable with to capture your very intimate, favorite moments.
I'm THAT person... That person who has multiple devices completely filled with hundreds (...of thousands) of pictures. That person who can remember anything she did on any given day because there's a picture to go along with it! I LOVE capturing the tiny moments in life that might otherwise be forgotten.
Not everyone has the passion for capturing moments of their families that I do. I realized that they may WANT that passion, but don't have the time (or energy!) to be able to take great quality photographs of their families.
And then it hit me. Uhm, HELLO?! I could be photographer for others. Since I started my child, family, and newborn photography business, I have had the pleasure of documenting quality family moments all around Northern Virginia, Washington DC, and now in our new home of Ankara, Turkey.
but how are we preserving the memory of that hustle and bustle?
Dana captures beautiful, timeless photos that you'll treasure forever and ever, and she makes it fun. She's a joy to work with and so easy to talk to, but her real gift is that she's like a MAGICIAN when it comes to engaging your children. We were worried about our 13 month old but what do you know, Dana got her to laugh and smile the whole time with all the tricks she has up her sleeve.

Dana is a dream to work with! She has always captured the most beautiful moments for our family. Highly recommend - especially for those who have little ones who might not be willing to sit still and smile on queue! Dana is real, positive, hilarious and so responsive! You will not regret booking her!

kind words from sarah c:
Dana is the best! She’s totally willing to work with you, but most importantly your kiddos, to capture the best shot! We have been blown away by the awesome photos each time we’ve hired Dana. On top of the beautiful pictures, she’s a genuinely nice person who sets you at ease and makes taking pictures fun even for the most camera avoidant of husbands

kind words from Delaney B:
Dana is not only a FABULOUS photographer, but an awesome person to know. I am so, so happy with the photos taken during our newborn session. Dana captured great moments and all while keeping a wild toddler engaged and making it fun for him! Oh and what other photographer has a “client closet” with dresses to wear during your session?!

kind words from Megan s:
If you are looking for an AMAZING photographer...look no further! Dana is so talented behind the camera and never fails to impress me with how she gets all kids to smile and participate in our photos - & that is no small task! Dana has done maternity, newborn and family lifestyle photos for my family and I can't wait for her to capture our milestones for years to come.

I love tiny humans... but I also LOVE bumps. When I was pregnant with my daughter, I didn't invest in maternity photos. I thought it was maybe a little weird to have photos of myself professionally taken for the first time since my wedding... when i was 30 pounds over my normal weight! I have to say it's one of my biggest regrets. I miss having my sweet girl movin' around in there and wish I had more than iphone photos to remember such a special time in my family's life.
A two to three hour shoot in the comfort of your own home (or outdoors!) designed to capture all of your newborn's tiny, brand-new moments! These sessions intend to reflect your first few weeks of baby's life - so why not have them where you're spending most of your time?! The majority of this session has a lifestyle feel; photos are taken of the whole family in your home spending time together. Posed photos of your newborn alone are also included... because who doesn't want to see their new tiny human wrapped up like a tiny little bundle?!
A one hour guided outdoor session where play, games, and laughter are incorporated to see the love and excitement families have for each other. Have a place in mind? These sessions can be where you're envisioning! There are also plenty of locations I can recommend. No matter what, all we need is some pretty light and your little family!
I strive to make any experience with me unlike any other photo session you have been a part of. My style is natural and relaxed, and my goal is to take any burden or stress associated with photo shoots OFF of you! I want your little moments to unfold in a fun and uninhibited way as I guide you through our photography session. This shouldn't have to be another thing you're stressed about - let me do the prep work for you. I aim to bring out each family member's unique characteristics, ensuring that ALL photos highlight your family's unique story.
I know there are a lot of photographers out there, but
