Alright, now for the interview! Firstly Danielle, how would you best describe yourself?
Photographer

Our readers would love to get to know you more Danielle. Tell us about yourself, why you are passionate about what you do, and your journey so far.
I believe all things are possible. My recipe is faith, love, hope and grace. Dare to dream and mix it all together with a little bit of bravery. I love to capture the human soul on fire. We are all powerful, and I get to capture those moments in my camera when I look directly into your eyes and click. 

Would you like to complete our full Editorial interview or skip straight to uploading your photos?
Keep interviewing me!

What are your goals and how do you see yourself progressing in the field Danielle?
I'm am growing and learning every day, and I won't stop. I've got a long way to go but mark my words I will be at the top.

How do you communicate with people Danielle? Are you patient? Are you friendly? How open are you to clients’ requirements?
My motto is only kindness matters, and in that, we find patience, love and acceptance. I'm kind and patient and loving at ALL that I meet; I truly believe that has gotten me this far. I have to be open to my client's requirements, they are the ones that have gotten me here. Photography is a dance, and I'm not the only one dancing. For us to not trip over each other's feet, we have to work together. 

If you had to do it over again, what would you change Danielle?
Nothing. I'm a cancer survivor. Pancreatic cancer tried to claim my life seven yeas ago at 32 years old. I realized then that tomorrow is truly not promised. There is no day but today so do it now. I left a secure job to purse my dream of being a photographer and artist, and here I am today. If I had not gone through cancer, then I'd still be miserable at the same job. So I would not change a thing!

Who is your hero Danielle, and how have they helped you get to where you are?
I can't name just one here. All four are equally as important and played a huge role in me being here today. My parents, my mother and father simply love and believe in me, and that's enough. My daughter, she's 3, she is Brielle's Couture. She reminded me of my passion for life and people and reminded me every day to be the best I can be every second of five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes of every year.

How important are creative education courses Danielle? Have you taken any, and did you find them useful?
Creative education courses are very important. We learn to take our craft to another lever there. We always have to be learning and growing. I graduate this fall from Professional photography school.

Do you have any tips for someone who is just starting out in the industry?
ALWAYS stay true to who you are. Dare to dream bigger. Always be willing to keep learning. FAITH, LOVE, HOPE and a little GRACE!
