I started my journey as a photographer to help people feel comfortable and confident in front of a camera. Being in front of a camera can be straight up terrifying, and my #1 goal is to make it not only a fun, but stress-free and memorable experience!
I've been a professional photographer for 8 years, but I've been playing with a camera since I was 7 years old. I started out in nature photography at a super young age, and never put it down. Around high school I would say I realized I liked people better than birds and the rest is history.

"Could not have asked for a better photographer to do my senior pics! Daena was soo sweet and made the whole process so easy and comfortable! As someone who has no idea how to pose for pictures, she helped me relax and have fun! The whole experience was amazing and so worth it. 10/10 would choose Daena again and would recommend to anyone wanting to commemorate a special time in their life!"

"Daena was so great to work with! Very professional but also felt like a friend because she was so encouraging and supportive. She definitely knows what she’s doing behind the camera and was helpful with posing to get those picture perfect moments. She also showed me pictures as we went so I could adjust as needed which I really appreciate! The final pictures were beautiful and I got them back faster than expected. Would highly recommend Daena for any special occasions- she’s awesome!"
