I get asked a lot by other moms about recommendations for photographers. So I am writing this post on Dana who has photographed my girls several times. Dana is a Bethesda based natural light photographer specializing in children and families. I first met Dana about 2 years ago when she photographed my daughter Clara in our backyard. Clara was 19 months old and was at her most energetic stage. Clara wouldn’t stay in one spot for longer than a few seconds during the session, yet Dana got so many stunning images. Actually, too many to choose from!
Since then, Dana has photographed both of my girls a few more times and each session has been a wonderful experience. Dana works so well with children that she makes them feel as though they are playing and not posing for a photo shoot. She is great at capturing them in a natural and candid way.
And her close ups are so striking!
Dana is always so good at interacting with my girls and being silly so that they feel comfortable in front of the camera.
She is also amazing at capturing personality, expressions, and emotions in her photos.
It’s clear that Dana is incredibly talented and has a serious passion for her work! She is such a pleasure to work with. I will be forever grateful for these images Dana has captured of my girls. I have many photos from these shoots displayed around our home and every time I look at them I have powerful feelings. Children grow up way too fast. I’m thankful I have these photos to always look at and take me back to these precious moments in time.
