Daniela has been taking pictures since she got her first disposable camera, but has been a professional photographer since 2015, thanks to her sister who started a fashion blog and needed someone to take photos of her. Daniela has worked with models and fashion bloggers ever since. Getting into fashion and portrait photography challenged her to explore the human body and bring out the natural beauty of her models. Natural light and the outdoors are her essentials when it comes to photo shoots. Daniela owns a tripod and a Canon DSLR and she challenges herself everyday to utilize the natural sunlight and natural surroundings available in the moment. She moved to Las Vegas in 2005. A lot of her photography consists of desert backdrops, cactus plants, and palm trees.
I love showcasing beauty where it's not apparent. I love looking through the lens and figuring out how to compose the shot in a way to bring out the best of my subject and surroundings. It's invigorating telling simple beautiful stories. I love when I can connect with my client on an energetic level and the whole process of shooting and bring that story to life becomes effortless and inspiring. I love seeing that spark in the eye. I know I've done my job well when my client feels empowered, comfortable, and happy.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I've worked mostly with fashion bloggers and models in Las Vegas, so I would say that I've done mostly portraits and fashion shoots for social media. I take the time to ask my clients about their vision for the shoot and what they define as beautiful. Everyone is different and everyone has a different definition for beauty. I try to smile and laugh with my clients. I want them to feel that they can trust me. That's when a lot of good things happen.
