It is an illusion that photos are made with the camera… they are made with the eye, heart and head – Henri Cartier-Bresson

I’m Daneen and I probably don’t need to tell you, I am a photographer. First I want to say thank you for checking out my page and an even bigger thank you for taking the time to read a bit about me. I truly believe that you must like your photographer and share good energy in order to create beautiful photographs together.
I thought about writing how I started with photography (it’s a pretty typical story with a bit of a twist) or blabbing on and on about what photography means to me (and I could go on and on…..really there is a lot there) or explaining why I think investing in quality photography for any event, but also for everyday life, is one of the best, long lasting investments you can make, (it will never depreciate in value) but I decided to skip all that and make a kinda silly list of fun random facts about me that might help you to get an idea of who I am without a camera in my hand.

•I am a mom, wife, sister, daughter, aunt
•I have three little love bugs who mean the world to me.
•I love to travel and have been to many places in the world, but still one of my absolute favorite places on earth is on a dance floor.
•I have spent most of my adult life working as a lampworker. That flame in my heart will never truly go out.

•I love peeling the protective plastic coating off of new electronics.
•There is nothing like the feeling of a really good catch or goal.
•My favorite smell is tomato sauce cooking in an air conditioned kitchen. It’s the smell of my childhood at my grandma’s house.

•Don’t get me wrong, I love diamonds….but really my best friends are my best friends.

•My favorite flowers are poppies, peonies, and white anemones.
•Planes, and the simple fact that they can fly, will always amaze me.

•I love organized sports, but playground games like dodge ball or tag always gave me anxiety….still do.
•I believe life’s big events are magical, but the little moments of everyday life are the most beautiful.
