About the Studio



the brainchild of Danielle, after glossing through her parents’ wedding album. She noticed moments were missing and felt an urge to fill the gaps. She craved the in-between action and created Natural Lights Photography to capture it.  Over 20 years later and Natural Lights Photography is still going strong, with a personable and professional approach, while still having fun and caring about making clients feel comfortable, authentic and able to tell their unique story.

She/ Her

Danielle loves finding gentle light, encouraging her clients to step into it and seeing what magic comes from that mix. Detail focused and connection-oriented, she uses subtle cues to prompt emotional reactions and record authentic interactions.

Danielle isn’t a poser or an intervener, she much prefers to give her clients a little guidance and let them act naturally. Through excellent time management, organisation and creative flair, Danielle delivers a professional experience with a personal touch.

No matter how many things are happening at once, Danielle will have them all covered. Focused on capturing raw emotions, honest connections and genuine interactions. She encourages all people to enjoy themselves rather than overthinking the experience.
