I want to be by your side since your first steps into the motherhood journey, documenting every single milestone and turning them into heirlooms to be admired by many generations to come!

My multi-cultural background: I’m originally from Brazil, but have been living in (and loving) Texas for the last 9 years. My husband has Italian citizenship and both of my kids were born in different countries: My son was born in Spain and just two years later my daughter was born in Switzerland. We try to visit our family and friends often, which means we're always ready for a worldwide adventure.

Say Hello

A snapshot into my life

1 / 3

I was born and raised in Sao Paulo, Brazil and now I'm living the American Dream in the enchanting and humid Lake Jackson, Texas. 

Before becoming a professional photographer, I was a Chemist (surprise!) and I will be forever thankful for that first career choice, because that was how I was able to meet my husband Fabio. We've been living the best worldwide adventure together for almost 20 years now and we have two 'littles', who are not so little anymore.

Having a multi-cultural family myself and after living in four different countries for the past 20 years, I got used to the constant change of scenes, change of faces, new languages, the daily adjustments and the intensity of every experience. I want to continue to travel, to explore and to teach my kids all about the beauty of the different cultures out there!
I have family and friends spread through 4 continents and I visited 18 countries so far.

Here in the US, I've visited 14 states, but my goal is to have visited all 50 states in the next 10 years.

Two of my biggest passions - dogs and photography - came together when I started volunteering for my local SPCA in 2016, photographing adoptable dogs for their social media. I got involved quickly and deeply in the animal rescue world and started volunteering and fostering cats and dogs for a few other organizations. 

Between 2016 and 2022, my family and I fostered 42 animals for 3 different animal rescues groups. We adopted three of them, our dogs Pixie (RIP), Uber, and Indie.

Danielle is an amazing photographer and person. As you can imagine, photographing a child can be be a difficult task, however Danielle made it an easy task to complete. Throughout our session, Danielle effortlessly adapted to my son’s personality and interests. I appreciate that she takes the time to learn about her subject’s interests and incorporates them into her photography. I’ll forever be thankful for the beautiful moments she has captured through her photography.

She is great at making your own vision come to life, while also surprising you with unique ideas you wouldn’t think of. She takes the time to truly get to know your family and capture your personalities in the photos.

Danielle is so great to work with and her photos never disappoint. She has an eye for capturing the best scene and getting the most realistic photos. Even her posed photos capture the emotions of the moment. She then brings everything together and to life with her editing! I look forward to my next session each time!

I say let the pictures speak for themselves! But truly Danielle is amazing!!! I hate pictures of myself but before we allowed time to get away from us I wanted to take some shots of myself and my husband together. Danielle did a beautiful job. Made us feel both comfortable. We had a lot of fun. And she got the pictures to us within the same month of us having the shoot. They are beautiful and I will always be so happy for her work!

You Deserve only the best

I firmly believe that family photography is not just about taking pictures, but about preserving memories. I want to provide photographs as heirlooms that will remind you of special moments and milestones in your family's life, and I am honored to be a part of that.
