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, 2016 and 2017. My photography blogs have been featured in The Huffington Post and Tidewater Parent. I am regularly hired as a freelance photojournalist for The Daily Press and my sports images have been published in the official USA Swimming magazine.
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.
