Danae took my LSU graduation pictures on May 30th on campus. Seeing her work and knowing how great of a person she is, I knew I wanted her to take them for me. I was nervous of being awkward, because I am not a fan of taking pictures and have never done this before. She made it incredibly easy for me, even through some bad weather. She captured exactly what I wanted and made me feel beautiful. Danae, thank you for driving out of the way to capture one of my biggest accomplishments to date and I would recommend you to anyone looking to have memories that will last forever through pictures.

Senior photos or just portraits alone, are pretty nerve wrecking. I can honestly say that during my entire session, I felt so relieved, guided, & good looking. I didn't have to check the photos because Danae actually took the time between every shot to fix my hair, ask me turn my face down or up a little, or just adjust her camera. My photos came out incredible & made me look confident as I felt in front of her lens. Highly recommend for any shots needed!

I've used Danae's photography services on many occasions but one of the most treasured sessions was when she captured my maternity photos. At 36 weeks of pregnant glory she handled me with love and comfort and captured moments I'll reflect back on for my entire life. She was prompt, made sure every pose was becoming and every hair was in place. She is overall a pure delight to work with and her captured results speak for themselves.

Danae has taken photos of our family on multiple occasions (including maternity sessions, family session, and birth of child) and each time I am thrilled with the results. Even on days when I feel like we gave her absolutely nothing to work with, she comes back with gorgeous photos. She is a joy to work with from beginning to end. She is easy to communicate and schedule with. She is great at directing us during the shoot and makes all feel comfortable and relaxed (I have THREE small children so that is no easy task). And she has a quick turnaround on photos. They are priceless pictures I will treasure for a lifetime. I HIGHLY recommend her. You will not be disappointed.


My family and I go to Danae every time we need photos of our family. We always LOVE the photos that she captures and she has such a gift for capturing the best moments. For example, our one-year-old son is always smiling wide in the photos that she takes. She has the unique talent of focusing on so many things at once – ensuring we are posed, getting my son’s attention, tactfully letting me know if there is something on me that I need to fix, straighten, tuck, etc. She is open to us coming in with ideas about how we want the shoot to go and does everything in her power to accommodate our wishes, but what I appreciate even more (being someone that is often unsure of how to pose, etc) is that she is ready and willing to tell you where to go and what to do, and I always love the results of her confidence. I would recommend her over and over again!
