Danielle Stevens Photography

Danielle Stevens Photography Danielle Stevens Photography is a natural light photographer based out of Albany, NY and the surrounding area. I am Danielle Stevens owner of Danielle Stevens Photography.
(2)

I studied photography at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY where I received my BFA. I am a natural light photographer and I specialize in portraiture and weddings. I enjoy capturing life as it happens. The energetic spirit of a child to the beauty of two people in love. My approach to each photo session is to capture you as your truest self. I have always found the beauty in the unexpected. In the everyday. In the moments you find routine or mundane, in the things you pass by each day without a second glance. I translate this fascination of the ordinary into my personal and professional work. A session with me won't consist of multiple posed images of everyone sitting pretty and smiling for the camera. I will be sure to capture a few of those, but I will be capturing the in between moments. A mother snuggling her little boy, a father twirling his daughter. A husband brushing the hair off of his new wife's cheek. These will be the moments you will be glad to have in your hands. These images evoke emotion and are true to that time in your life. When you were a newlywed, when you looked into the eyes of your newborn, when your child was small and the world was full of wonder, and all of the moments in between.

What a beautiful wedding! No detail was overlooked, the venue, M & D farm - Barn and Garden Weddings. was a dream, and Ashley + Joe couldn't have been more incredible to work with.

Thank you for allowing me to capture this perfect day for you!

Congratulations Ashley + Joe!

I had the privilege of photographing Brad + Rachel's wedding a couple of weeks ago in Vermont. Rachel and I went to school together growing up, so being able to document their big day was incredibly special.

Hi! It’s been quiet over here for the past 6 months or so. It has been nice focusing on being home with my little boy but now that he is a bit older, I am ready to start taking on more clients. I have restructured my pricing a little, offering two options for my documentary sessions.

I am also booking weddings! I have made the decision a couple years ago to only book 5-10 weddings a year. I have booked a few so if you are getting married in 2019 and are interested in hiring me, don’t wait to get in touch!

Lastly, I also photograph for small businesses. Creating images that can be used for social media and for their websites.

Please comment below with any questions you have or just to say hi!

Favorite Baby Products: Sleep

Who here has a new baby, knows someone who does, is going to have one, or just feels like reading about my quest in getting Atlas to sleep (and failing miserably still)?

I have posted about all sorts of baby sleep products that I have tried and loved, and some that didn't work so well for us, but may work for you in your mission to sleep! https://www.daniellestevensphotography.com/blog/2018/4/16/favorite-baby-products-sleep

Spring is Here: Local Nature Spots

I blogged! I said I would be doing this more often...I meant a couple times a week...even just once a week, but instead its been 2 months! I promise this will happen more often, and like I said before, I will be sharing more than just client sessions. I want to make my blog a place where you can get to know me, where you can learn about more local spots. Where I can share my baby finds, or let you in on what its like raising two boys 8 years apart etc. So to celebrate this beautiful weather, I am sharing with you 6 of my favorite places to get outside and explore. These locations are within 30 minutes of Albany, NY maybe you have been to these, maybe not. Hopefully this encourages you to get out and find some places near you!

I have let the winter and having a new baby keep me indoors for the past 7 months, so I think it goes without saying that I am ready to get outside and enjoy the nice weather and the beautiful places not far from here. We lived in a little apartment in Albany for Aadens first 3 years, so I was alwa

Hey everyone! Can you believe its May?!? I am so happy to hear the birds chirping outside and to see the sun shining. I can't wait to get outside more with my little man now that he is bigger and the weather is better. I am excited to explore some of my favorite spots with Aaden and Atlas in tow.

Now is a good time to start booking sessions for your family! I mean when is it not a good time, really? I plan to take the boys fishing, get out on the lake soon, and just picnic where ever we can throw down a blanket.

I'd love to hear about what your family likes to do once the weather gets nice, comment below to let me know!

and as always email me at [email protected] to book your session!

New Year, New Website

So after a couple of years of wanting to redo my website and take a different approach when it comes to blogging. I have finally done it. It's a work in progress, like everything I guess, but it is going to be much more me. I want to share so much more with people than just photo sessions. I want to share places I like to go, and DIY projects. Personal struggles especially since my family has gone through quite a lot over the past few years. I feel like I need a space to express myself and the things that speak to me, and maybe in doing that it will help others to either open up themselves, or visit somewhere new, try a project, etc. This first post is short and sweet and was written a month ago! But I am finally ready to share

Beauty of Being a Kid: Photographing your Child Naturally by Letting them Lead

I have been working on a little blog post with YOU in mind, and I am so excited to share it with you all!

I get asked frequently how I am able to take pictures of Aaden like I do. We have created a pretty peaceful and drama free relationship when it comes to photographing because of my approach of sitting back and interfering with his play as little as possible.

So I created a post to give YOU a bunch of tips on how to photograph your child naturally without the drama by letting them lead. You will end up with images that showcase their personality and interests without the power struggle.

Check out my post and don't forget to download the freebie at the end!

One thing I am often asked is: "How do you get your son to cooperate for pictures?"One of the things I have learned as a mother and photographer is that when you allow a child to play, explore and imagine freely, you end up with a kid who is pretty content. When you engage with them in their…

The Farmers' Museum in Cooperstown puts on a historic candlelight night once a year at Christmastime. We got super bundled up (Cooperstown was colder than Antartica the other morning!) and headed there to see how life was like a century ago. We warmed up with wassail by the fire and got to see Santa in the little schoolhouse! We tried going on the carousel but just as we were about to go in, it stopped working.

We went on the Tinseliner train in North Adams over the weekend with Hoosac Valley Train Ride . We drove through the berkshires to make our way there, making it with minutes to spare, they played Christmas music from the 50's and people were encouraged to dress in their best 50's attire to get into the spirit of train travel. Santa came onto the train and passed out gifts to all of the children too!
