If you take photos, the simple answer is YES! Let’s face it, photography is engraved in our lives in every way. We all take photos all the time. We let them pile up on our phones or camera memory cards and then only decide to do something with them when we realize we’re out of space.

Danielle is a wonderful teacher. She explained the basic use of my camera with hands-on learning and in warm soft voice that I could understand. She also provided me with a cheat sheet for me to practice with. I highly recommend her for the first class and for follow up classes if you are an inspiring photographer or really want to have a great hobby. She is awesome.
I thoroughly enjoyed Danielle’s Beginner’s Photography Workshop! I’ve had a DSLR camera for years but never knew how to use it properly. In fact, I was so overwhelmed by my camera that I didn’t get much past turning it on. Danielle took us back to basics – she explained all the cool features and buttons on the camera and then focused (pun intended!) on the “need to know” functions. She taught us from simple to… read more
I LOVED Danielle’s DSLR Photography class! I took a private lesson since I feel like I am just about at the intermediate level in photography. It was so helpful to meet with her one-on-one. She has a great, positive attitude, and her passion for photography is contagious! Danielle provided some great tips and explained the aperture in a way that finally made sense to me. She really knows how to break down the science of… read more
Danielle is super easy to work with and really puts you at ease. I’m not a fan of being photographed, I always feel so awkward. Danielle made the whole process absolutely painless and my head shot was more than I could have hoped. read more
I am an entrepreneur trying to make things happen. I came across Danielle through google search. My goal is to learn the art of photography, apply it to my business and my personal life. I have had the opportunity to take both her photography and lightroom classes. I am a complete beginner but I am so pleased with everything Danielle has shared with me. I have not become a photographer over night but I have… read more
Cannot say enough positive things about Danielle and this class. I have had a digital SLR for several years and was resigned to being intimidated by it… Danielle explained the functions of the camera and its settings so well. For the first time, I FINALLY am getting what it means to take the camera off “auto” and why and how to do that. We then took what she taught us and practiced with it outside… read more
Hi, I’m Danielle, the optimistic, outgoing gal always smiling behind the camera. I love to photograph and share mission-driven stories that are creating an environmentally and socially sustainable future for all life on this planet. Currently, home is sunny Orlando, Florida. However, I’m mildly obsessed with adventure and love to shoot, teach, and explore anywhere my camera will take me.
From the coastlines, wild west, inner cities, and farmlands of America, to the colorful cultures, ancient architecture, and lush landscapes of Europe and Asia, I’ve only begun to discover what’s out there and I am in awe of it all. Throughout my 15+ years experiencing this world behind the camera, photography has transformed my entire outlook on life and in the process, it has taught me the best lesson we could ever learn, which is this:
All we have is this moment.
That’s why in 2014, I created Live Wonderful. To Live Wonderful means to live in wonder, fully. To be in awe of the magic that is life. To be present to this moment, right here and now, always. Because that’s where true creative consciousness lives, in the present moment. In the open space between our thoughts.
When we learn to harness the power of our own creativity, the power of our individual perspectives and diverse stories of life, we can begin to create our world with more intention, more purpose, more passion, and more truth. I believe, we are all conscious storytellers and creative human beings. Let’s make a difference, one conscious, mission-driven story at a time. x Danielle
The Abobe Lightroom Program is necessary to take this class. It is not included in the price of the class. This program is available to you in two different ways. The newest and most convenient option is to subscribe to Adobe Creative Cloud Photography Plan for $9.99/month. With this subscription, you have access to Lightroom and Photoshop, free updates and a host of other great features including a mobile app and automatically syncing to all your devices.
The second option is to buy the standalone program on Amazon for $149.00. This does not include Photoshop and it does not include any updates or extra features. Though, none of that is necessary to enjoy Lightroom or this class. If you have questions you can email Danielle. She is always happy to help!
Please make sure you have the program loaded on your laptop BEFORE arriving to class. You DO NOT have to open the program. Just download it and have it ready to go. We will walk through the rest when you arrive!
*** The cost of the Lightroom Program is NOT included in the price of this class. ***
