About Dana

This is me 🙂

I’ve always been fascinated by the beauty and power of photography. As a child, wherever I went, my camera went with me – it was a little Canon 20 Snappy 35mm. To this day, I still use a Canon (the pro cameras I have now are way better than my little Snappy, haha!).

I loved that a photo could capture a moment in time – hair flying, eyes wide open with delight, arms and legs flailing, body suspended in air…  pure, bunny-hopping joy!

As the years passed, I studied Business and Spanish in college, moved to Spain for a summer to study the language, got married, had three children and took the traditional route of having my family photos taken at department stores or by photographer hobbyists. The pictures and experiences were “OK,” but not “wow”.

I longed for something that would capture the magic of my family’s life experiences.  It was then that I remembered and returned to my first love… photography.  I began studying at night, worked as an apprentice in Atlanta and then had the privilege of starting my own business in 2009. I felt like I was home again.

Now, my greatest joy is to capture your life’s experiences – the smiles, the delight and the fun! When you work with me, you’ll walk away with memories of an unforgettable photography experience and have photos you’ll love to share.

I’m also going to share a secret with you. I am obsessed with home decorating, remodeling, and am a self-confessed HGTV addict (Joanna Gaines, I love you – you are my inspiration!!!). What does this mean for you? I can help you visualize and create (on your own walls with your own portraits) beautiful wall-art arrangements that perfectly complement your décor.

If you’re looking to work with someone who is professional, fun-loving, will make you feel completely at ease and bring out your very best in each photo, then contact me here or call 706.969.9024.
