BEHIND THE CAMERA
I’ve been photographing people for 10 years and I can confidently say I can make *anyone* feel comfortable in front of my camera.
I will pose right alongside you so you just have to mirror what I’m showing you. You will never have to be unsure of what to do while I’m photographing you.
I believe in the bottom of my heart that seeing beautiful photos of ourselves is life changing. And confident women are world changing.
All of my work is shot on film.
I’m a dog mom to two sweet little baby angels. Malcolm is a golden retriever and Gus is a ???? (We think Rottweiler Corgi mix.)
I drink my coffee black, iced, and as strong as possible. All year round.
I could eat my weight in pizza and thai food.
85% of my belongings are secondhand. I loveee thrifting and am damn good at it.
I’m a major introvert. While I love people, I get my energy from lots of alone time.
Drink of choice: glass of italian red wine, or a whiskey sour.

"Daytona really does have some sort of magic to her. Her presence is effervescent and incredibly calming. Other than the fact that you get some kickass photos, I'd book a session just to hang out with her."
"everything you are looking for in an experience being photographed, you will find working with Daytona. she's personable, communicative, friendly, and she will hype you up like no other. My time shooting with her was fun and comfortable and the photos that came as a result were some of my favorite of myself. I attribute this to her direction behind the camera and the relaxed setting she created."
"She makes you completely comfortable, she’s fun, considerate, thoughtful, and she just brings out the best in you, during the shoot and in the photos. She is literally magic and doing a shoot with her will boost your confidence and gain you a few paces on the road to loving yourself and your body."
"Daytona is one of the most genuine people I have ever come across, meeting and shooting with her was absolutely amazing. Her ability to capture people as their true selves is a rare thing to find and my favorite thing about her photography."
"She always makes me feel 100% comfortable in my own skin- every shoot i just feel like a zen goddess. It's so important to love your body and feel comfortable with yourself, and Daytona is like a guide to help you get there. Shooting with her is one of my favorite forms of self care."
