Capturing the essence of womanhood, Celebrating the unique journey of every woman with artistry and compassion

My photography career began as a personal quest during my pregnancy, facing the challenge of finding maternity photographers who represented plus-size women. This drove me to self-teach portrait photography, armed with a camera I once used for landscapes. The journey, fueled by a desire for inclusion and a custom-made gown, marked my first steps into a world where I could create the representation I sought.

Over the years, this hobby blossomed into a profession. Starting with just the basics, my photos soon stood out for capturing authentic emotions and milestones. After extensive learning, mentorships, and practice, my skills deepened. Now, with over seven years in the field, my work is not just technically proficient but emotionally rich, transforming everyday moments into extraordinary memories. My continuous growth in photography is a journey of passion, dedicated to capturing the unique beauty and stories of each subject.

“Danielle with deSaint Studios & Photography is literally a dream photographer to work with. She makes you feel so comfortable and beautiful the entire session. Her eye is top notch. She helps with posing and really gets the perfect shot every time. I’ve done 2 shoots with her and my daughter has done a mini shoot. She’s amazing. I’d recommend her to anyone!”
