After lots of searching and debating if birth photography was going to be "worth" the expense, I met with Danica and immediately knew I needed her at our birth. She was so warm and friendly and it felt like I had known her forever. On the big day, I vaguely remember the midwife telling me she had arrived, but I was completely oblivious to her until after my daughter was born. Then came the pictures, and I cannot even begin to say how beautiful they are. They are priceless treasures and I cannot wait to share them with my daughter and show her the beauty of being a woman and what we get to do as we bring lives into the world. Danica was phenomenal and full of surprises along the way that made her a natural extension of our family. She would be one of the first calls I would make if we were to get pregnant again!

Danica was more than our birth photographer; she was part of our team and support system. She didn’t just take pictures; she was encouraging and supportive and helpful. We keep receiving these little gifts from her and every time, I am just amazed at how above and beyond she goes. We will have the pictures and video to last a lifetime, but we will also have this amazing story to tell about how blessed we are to have such an amazing photographer and now friend. The universe drew me to her for a reason...we have been blessed! I want everyone to experience how amazing she is!

Danica, you met my expectations and blew them away into another category I didn’t even know existed!! You see the small moments that I don't ever want to forget. Our Sunday morning tradition of the donut shop, singing songs while getting into the car, my daughter sharing her mac and cheese with the have a way of bringing to light the activities we do every day that we take for granted now, but deep down know that we are going to miss like crazy when our kids grow up!! Now we will always be able to share in these sacred moments.
