Hi! I'm Dani!
I'm so happy you're here!
As the daughter of a landscape architect and a writer, I grew up surrounded by artistically minded people with an eye for design and an affinity for storytelling. This background was essential in developing my approach to documenting families and helping brands define their aesthetics.

Lessons from my
From my mother, I received encouragement to nurture my big, wild, fantastical imagination. She made up stories to tell me as a small child and read many a book aloud before bedtime. We would belt Broadway songs in the car when she took me to theater practice. Her support of my creative nature helped me remain a kid at heart and is why I LOVE working with children. How they see the world, what they have to say about it, and the ones they create at the drop of a hat never cease to amaze.
From my father, I inherited his eye, knowing a good scene or design when I see it. While he became a landscape architect, his first love was photography. Black and white pictures he took lined the hallways of our home growing up and when I began my own journey into photography, he became like a kid again, excited to talk about a subject he knows a lot about. After years of watching him take pictures of bushes, mulch, grass, and, once, a dime in the space between sidewalk slabs at Legoland he found to be ridiculous, it was a surprise to learn he is actually well versed in the art of photography. However, his noticing of small details also trained me to search for and pick out finer elements, be it during a shoot or noticing a nice tree grate while on a walk, which I of course take a picture of and send to my dad.

“Dani is wonderful and an exceptional photographer. She is easy to communicate with, kind, and very flexible when it comes to scheduling (even when I had to reschedule because of the pandemic). She did an in-home family session and handled my very, very energetic and enthusiastic toddler really well. The pictures that we received are beautiful and we are really happy to have them that capture this nice time as a young family. Also her turn around time was really fast! If you want to capture a special moment in your life and want a really gifted photographer that captures real life, I would highly recommend her!”
We absolutely adore Dani! She has done numerous photos sessions for our family and we can’t thank her enough for making us feel comfortable and relaxed. Dani is a great photographer to work with. She has a great eye for detail and is a great listener. I simply can’t recommend her enough! Thank you Dani!
“From beginning to end, our experience with D. Foster Photography was amazing! Working with Dani was an absolute joy. We couldn’t be more pleased with Dani, her photos, and our overall experience. She was incredibly professional, talented, knowledgeable, and easy to work with. Not only did she take fantastic photos (she really has an eye for lighting!), she led us on an adventure to capture shots that were more beautiful than we even hoped for. We highly recommend D. Foster Photography!"
“I loved our in-home session! I HGIHLY recommend it for all new families.”
