Hi there! I'm Dalena!

Thank you so much for dropping by my little corner of the internet!

I'm starting this blog so that I can share more about my photo sessions. You'll get to see a little bit about me, some behind the scenes, and see more about what all goes on before, during, and after a session.

See some of my favorite photos I've taken of my kiddo above!

I'm a camera wielding mom capturing everyday magic...

I started my photography journey in 2019 after I left my job in Accounting at the TN Farm Bureau corporate office in Columbia to stay home with my son. I've always been a creative type person and a bit of a computer nerd so I loved learning lifestyle photography with my son as the subject. We had lots of fun and adventures together and the photos that I captured during that fleeting time in his life are some of my most cherished.

Then just as I was in the process of going from hobbyist to professional photographer, 2020 happened. During that difficult and uncertain time I decided to put my small business on hold. I ended up focusing on learning more Photoshop and that's when I discovered my love of editing! My son and I came up with some really fun photoshoots that year including superheroes, dinosaurs, celestial, Disney inspired, storybook inspired, and so much more! After sharing my work online, I started to get a lot of interest in what I was creating and finally in 2021 is when I started branching out to offering sessions to others.

To say I have a blast with what I do now is an understatement. I love every second I'm out there photographing and I hope it shows through in my work. I love to read so a lot of my work is inspired by fairytales and the fantasy genre I love so much. I'm a huge Harry Potter fan so any time I can capture a little magic is fine with me!

When I'm not chasing kiddos around with a camera you can find me spending time with my family, playing Final Fantasy XIV or World of Warcraft, with my nose in a book, strolling through Hobby Lobby, or writing Star Trek fanfiction.
