"Award Winning professional photographer, Danielle Lavis, offers a custom experience that promotes strong, positive identities and a refined approach to portraiture. Recently voted as one of Howard County's BEST photographers, Danielle is the leading choice for custom photography and overall luxury portrait experience”.
I offer a custom, luxury experience that is truly unlike a typical portrait session. Your family portraits will be beautiful, artful and reflect who you are and what makes your family unique. Anyone can take a nice photo of you. However, not every professional photographer can show WHO YOU ARE through their portraits.
My philosophy has been created with the client in mind. It's about the relationships, quality and offering more than just taking a nice picture. Choosing DLP for your custom portraits means choosing unparalleled professionalism, quality and creativity. I strive for excellence in hopes that my clients continue to choose me as their family and lifestyle photographer. It is truly an honor to build relationships with my clients and continue to document their important family milestones. I strive for every client to not only walk away with beautiful images and designs, but to also walk away with a wonderful memory of the experience itself
Most photographers have a very scheduled process and do not have time to truly get to know you. My clients will "feel" that they have chosen the very best from the moment we first meet. I have a pre-session process I follow that is integral to building a client/photographer relationship and truly tailoring the session to meet your families needs. Creating a personalized experience is what makes me a custom photographer and why you can expect so much more throughout the entire experience with me. Each client will work closely with me to create a unique vision for their portrait session. Most photographers have a very scheduled process and do not have time to truly get to know you. It begins with an in studio complimentary consultation, where we get to know each other and customize each aspect of your portrait session to YOUR preferences. My clients feel comfortable knowing from start to finish I walk through the entire process with them and they are able to put their personal style into the session and all of their beautifully designed finished products.
With the help of my fabulous stylist partners, we have created a fun, innovative and inspiring styling process that clients just LOVE!
I offer to connect each client with a "Dream Team" on the day of their session to help create a full experience. The stylists working with DLP are top professionals in our area. We can arrange for you to work with a personal hair stylist and make-up artist to softly and naturally compliment your chosen looks. The stylists can be involved as much or as little as the client requests. The stylists most often come to you on the day of your session, in an effort to keep the day completely relaxed!
One of the reasons the portrait experience with Danielle Lavis Photography has become a preferred choice for Howard County and surrounding maryland area clients, is that DLP offers the option for professional fashion styling. To elevate the experience, Elizabeth Neighoff, Couture Stylist, is available to fuse her high fashion style and personal shopping talents to make the experience unforgettable. Follow the menu to "Stylist" to read all about Elizabeth, including her background working with Kate Spade and Michael Kors in New York. When incorporating Elizabeth into the session styling, clients are given the opportunity to polish their looks and truly create a one of a kind portrait experience- unparalleled by any other local photographers. Elizabeth is incredible at helping to create amazing looks from within your own closet! Elizabeth may utilize accessories from our private collection. However, this will be left to the discretion of the stylist. Elizabeth offers exclusive styling services and preferred rates to the clients of Danielle Lavis Photography. It is truly a one of a kind experience!
