Meet Your Photographer!

Hey, I'm Danae! (She/Her) 

I started my business in 2010 and have been struggling ever since to write a good "about me" section.
This page used to tell you all about my photography education and how much I love my job, and frankly, it was boring. Even to me. 
So here I am, 11+ years in business, giving up on a perfectly flowing life story/resume and instead just messily jot down some things

that are  important in my world and make me me:

| I'm based in Milwaukie Oregon (just outside of Portland) | My partner And and I met in college & I quickly decided they were my person for life |
| We have two senior Dachshunds - Brodie & Porter | Brodie is the "Office Puppy" and gets to hear all about your session while I'm editing |
| I'm an introvert and my happy place is being in the forest/nature (yes, I do want to take you hiking for your session!) |
I love camping & I love cooking - my perfect Oregon vacation is making really good food in the woods | 

| I believe you can decorate a home in only houseplants - and photos |



That's what I've got for now, but I'd love this to be less one-sided -

Let's set up a time for coffee or a zoom-chat to get to know each other and see if I'd be a good fit for your session or event.
