“Danelle is the most relaxed detail person I know! I was impressed with how she kept things moving, especially for the kids.  As a mom, I felt so relaxed during our session because Danelle is great with kids and kept them involved and positive, which is quite a miracle for a 6 & 9 year old! Communicating with the venue and checking on weather reports, sunset times beforehand, Danelle was able to let us know what to expect. I enjoyed talking with her about what photos I was envisioning and she asked about the personality and likes of each one of us!  Danelle’s talent, organization, calmness, and artistic nature combined created a wonderful photo experience for each of us! She reminded me how important it is to have family photos of this age, this time and these treasured moments will be looked upon for years to come! I’m glad I listened to her and I’m beyond thrilled with the amazing moments that were captured that day because those times truly fly by too quickly. All four of us agreed that we had fun in our portrait session!”-Wendy Kerstetter

“From start to finish my experience with Danelle was nothing short of wonderful. Initially, I had no intention of being in any of the images, as I was looking to capture my daughter’s One Year Cake Smash. Danelle, however, suggested that I be in at least a few shots. She explained that as a mother, she knows all too well that, more often than not, we’re the ones behind the camera and rarely the ones in the pictures with our little ones; I’m so glad I took her advice. She was incredibly patient with my daughter and really made us feel comfortable, which resulted in gorgeous photos that genuinely show the milestones my little girl reached in her first year of life, and the special day to day moments we share I might have otherwise forgotten. Even the packaging Danelle gave me each item in was beautiful! She truly places value on every detail. Children grow way too fast and I’m so thankful that we now have these photos to look back on forever. I will absolutely be recommending Danelle to all my family and friends and look forward to her capturing more moments for us in the future! “~ Sophia Mannarino

“Danelle was easy and fun to work with from the start. She prepared me for what to expect during the session and ask me what my goals for the session were to ensure a successful shoot. During the session Danelle was amazing with the kids! She kept them focused and motivated! The kids were angels and we captured some amazing memories. The gallery viewing was very relaxing and Danelle offered support and options from beginning to end to fit within my budget. The pictures and canvases I received were beautiful!

“We had a great experience with Danelle at Orr’s Farm Market for our maternity photo shoot. She took the time to pick the perfect spot for her vision for our shoot. We encountered bad weather the day of the shoot and Danelle was keeping in constant contact with us to ensure that we had the perfect conditions for the day and she captured phenomenal photos due to her thoroughness. She made us feel extremely comfortable and laid back during the shoot as well as making sure I was comfortable in all poses that we did. We were able to see our gallery within two short weeks and the process of choosing was very easy thanks to Danelle’s guidance. I’m so grateful to Danelle for doing a wonderful job capturing this chapter of our lives!”~ Heather Evans

“Thank you so much, Danelle! We loved working with you to capture these special images – it’s not always easy to have professional photos taken and actually feel as comfortable as you want to look, but you made it happen with ease for us! More importantly, we know we will treasure these pictures for a long time to come as we look back on this chapter of our lives.”~ Carrie Mansfield

“Working with dogs in a photo shoot can always be a challenge. Danelle volunteered right away when I mentioned on Facebook I was looking for someone to take Ronnie and my picture with our two German Shephards. As well as being professional she had a calming effect on us all. The pictures of the dogs were amazing, she captured their personalities beautifully. Working with Danelle was easy and a pleasure. I would recommend Danelle Sergent Photography to everyone.” ~ Laurie Clark-Grubbs
