I am a natural light portrait photographer serving the St. Louis Metro Areas. I specialize in photographing Newborns and also Maternity, Families and Seniors.

I am a single mom to the most intelligent, responsible, and respectful teenage son.  He is my biggest supporter and he gives me strength every day to be the best at anything.

I used to consider myself extremely shy, an introvert, but when my son was born I knew I had to push myself out of my comfort zone.  And as my business grew, I became more confident and extremely out going; something I never knew I had in me as that little shy girl.  I love working with little kids and making them feel comfortable and giving them an experience they will never forget.  So that next time you say “Picture time” they say “Yay, let’s go see Dana!”

I enjoy all types, but my passion falls with newborns and children.  The laughter and giggles, the precious sounds coming from a newborn, the sweetness from a sleeping baby, as you watch them smile in their dreams.

I love when I go so mom and dad with their first newborn, or second, and are so careful and quiet, watching me with all my wrapping techniques and posing without waking their precious little one.  And they are just amazed and confused in how I haven’t woken him/her yet. I just love playing around with such precious angels and making mom cry behind me as I create the most beautiful piece of are of her newborn.

I look forward to meeting and working with your family! Contact me today to set up your session!
