A photographer, makeup artist and content creator based in Austin, Texas. I work closely with brands in the beauty & fashion industry to create images share a strong message, and resonate with their customers. My style is minimalist, with a close attention to detail, using each element to elevate your brand.
I started photographing in high-school, focusing on conceptual self portraits,. Shortly thereafter, I started a photography intensive in Germany, studying fine art portraiture. I quickly realized my passion for fashion and beauty work, and began several internships under fashion photographers and makeup artists in Atlanta, GA.
My love for travel and need for adventure brought me overseas again, this time to teach photography in Abu Dhabi, UAE. While I was there, I collaborated with Muslim women to document the incredible style and intricacies of their abaya & hijab. My intention was the share their sense of style, creativity and outlook with the Western world. You can see more of those images, along with interviews with the women here.
I AM CLIENT OBSESSED
Working with brands I love has me like
One of my favorite parts of my job is that every day is different and exciting. I collaborate with you to create a custom package based off your brand’s needs. Before working together I take the time to understand your brand, who your ideal client is, and how we can serve them together.
While traveling and collaborating with others, I quickly learned the power of emotional connection, and how important that is to my process. Each interaction with my clients is an opportunity to connect and create together. I believe in chasing the life I want to live, and cultivating an atmosphere of creativity, and efficiency that I bring to every shoot. Clear expectations and goals are set prior so you arrive comfortable, and leave excited about the images we created together. We may enter as strangers, but we leave as great friends.
Clear communication with my clients is of utmost importance. Each project includes a brainstorming and planning session to make sure we are on the same page form the beginning, so our images are a collaborative effort. My extensive experience in the beauty and fashion industry makes it possible for me to smoothly guide you through the process of getting incredible brand images.
It was so wonderful to work with Daniela! First off, my deadline was super tight (the turnaround time was only 5 days), and she managed to deliver with time to spare. Daniela did such a great job at directing and coming up with new poses to try. She made whole the experience very easy and enjoyable, and the images she captured were just beyond anything I could have hoped for. Before we started, I explained to her the inspiration behind this project and showed her my ideas for some shots. From there, she just ran with it! This photoshoot really was a collaboration between artists, and I am so grateful to have worked with her on such a special project.
