All About Me!

Hi! I'm Danielle and I live on the North Shore of Long Island with my husband and two cats. I grew up on Long Island and have two younger sisters. Ever since I could remember I loved taking photos - my first big purchase was a digital camera in high school which I used for many years.

In 2009, I bought my first DSLR camera and my love affair with photography was officially full-blown. I took my camera everywhere and it has been with me to over 35 states and a dozen countries! It has captured some amazing moments of food, travel, and family (actually, the things I love most!!). In fact, I'm so often behind the camera, one of the few professional photos I have is from my very own wedding!!

I photographed my loved ones important moments through the years (engagement, wedding, everyday life). So, when both of my sisters became pregnant, I was honored that they wanted me to take their photos for maternity and gender reveals. Although we didn't know it at the time, they would give birth to two girls just six weeks apart. Doing their newborn photos, and then documenting their lives through their first 12 months and beyond was a privilege and allowed me to see firsthand my beloved sisters become mothers, nurturing the next generation of strong women.

Word spread and soon I was doing photos for family friends, friends of friends, and I realized this was something I loved to do. And so here we are! Gold Coast Family Photography was born. Although I have a studio on the North Shore, I have found most clients prefer photographers to come to their homes given a baby's immune system and general comfort level (especially important for first time parents)! I also love on location photography whether it's at your favorite park, the playground, zoo, or a place of my choice!

So get in touch. I look forward to capturing memories for you and your family just like I've done my own.
