My work is inspired by emotions, love, connection and natural beauty. I'm a nature lover who is drawn to sparkling light and water. I have an uncontainable enthusiasm for life and photography that's been referred to by some as contagious. I find myself seeking to capture the beautiful connections we make in life- from our loved ones, to what stirs our souls, and to the world around us.
When I'm not passionately pursuing photography, I live a whirlwind life with my husband, two teenage daughters, and my adorable Yorkie, Riley. I am known for holding impromptu dance parties, my lifelong addiction to lip balm, love for cabernet sauvignon, and my tireless energy. I've never met a stranger in my life and love the underdogs of the world. I believe life is a beautiful mess and each day is full of tiny miracles that make it all worthwhile. Photography gives me a platform to hold true to and share my beliefs with the world.
Danielle Jackson Photography's accomplishments include being a Best Of Coastal Virgina Magazine award recipient in 2014, 2015 and 2016. My photography blogs have been featured in The Huffington Post and Tidewater Parent. My photography has been published in the official USA Swimming magazine and I am regularly hired as a freelance photojournalist for The Daily Press.
I specialize in portrait and lifestyle photography, capturing authenticly expressive images. I would love to hear about your photographic needs and how we can collaborate a fun filled session together.
