Our organization hired Dani to take professional headshots to be used for social media, websites or meeting engagements for over 300 meeting participants. Dani was very patient, helped to make sure each person was comfortable and took the time to get the right shot. Her attention to detail was outstanding and we couldn’t be happier with her service. Thanks Dani!

Dani did such a fantastic job on my headshot this past fall that I gave my entire team the gift of the experience at year’s end.  We planned a half day event with Dani’s makeup artist and a stylist and ended up with a complete set of beautiful photos of each of us, plus a super fun group shot. Her studio was a perfect setting to mingle and share a meal while the work got done. Dani’s warmth, hospitality, keen eye, and outcome focus make her a delight to work with and her results nothing short of impeccable. I highly recommend her and her team!
