My name is Danielle Nielsen. I chose the business name of ‘Captures Life Photography’ because that’s what my focus is. Capturing the little moments in your life. I don’t have a studio, all photo shoots are done at your favorite park, playground, beach, or anywhere in between. I don’t use props or crazy editing techniques. I want your photos to look classic and timeless.
I focus on getting you to relax, enjoy each other, and actually have fun. I won’t force your kids to ‘say cheese’ or stand still and smile at me. I will play with them, quote Disney and/or Pixar movies with them, and generally be goofy. While we most always end up with a shot that looks posed and everyone’s smiling – you’ll have more candid moments, the moments in between. The look you give each other when you are relaxed. Your child reaching up to take your hand as we walk along. Your kids fighting with each other. Whatever it is that makes your family unique. I want to captures your life as it is now.
I use this blog to highlight my clients and their photos. I also use it to tell stories about my life. I’ve rambled about facebook, coffee, reading, and our journey through infertility and adoption. You’ll find a couple constants through it all – my monthly sunrise series and my monthly self-portraits. And the thing that never changes… my love of freezing moments, creating memories that stand the test of time.
