I'm a camera wielding mom capturing the magic of everyday!

Thank you for visiting and taking an interest in my photography. I'm so glad you're here!
I'm first and foremost a mom to one spectacular kiddo and wife to my best friend.
Besides photography I love fantasy books, I read and write Star Trek fanfiction, I play World of Warcraft and Final Fantasy, and I'm a huge Harry Potter fan! (Send me a message on FB if you wanna be friends!)

About my photography...

I picked up a camera shortly after my son was born and have been having a blast ever since. I love to read so my work is heavily influenced by fairy tales, storybooks, and children's imagination. My style is often described as bold, colorful, cozy, and dreamy. I love the magical glow and tones of a beautiful Tennessee sunset, the vibrant colors of flowers and nature with the different seasons here, and using a variety of clothing textures and small props to achieve a cohesive, dream-like, storytelling charm in my photos.

During my sessions I like to let children be themselves and interact with the world around them. My sessions are designed to be fun for the family so that the photos captured are beautifully authentic. Children photography is my specialty and I love working with all kinds of personalities from the wild ones to the shy ones. Children are absolutely magical to me!

“I set up a Unicorn session with Dalena and she was absolutely amazing! All the way from before we did pictures talking about what we would do and all the way to the end of editing pictures to make your dreams come to life in your pictures!!! She is a dream to work with! Stunning photos! You couldn’t ask for anyone better! Highly highly highly recommend her!!!!”

“There's joy and wonder everywhere when you see the world through the eyes of a child.”
