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
