Meet Daley

the lady behind the lens (and the curls)

Hey! I’m so glad you’re here! I truly am. 

I would love to hear your story and be part of telling it as you move into a new chapter!

Growing up as a dancer gave me a strong awareness and appreciation for movement, light and space. While I basically grew up in pink tights and a leotard, photography has always had a quiet presence in my life. It was a way to remember my friends as my family moved frequently with the military, a way to suspend the temporal nature of dance, and now it is the way I capture the thing I have come to value most — relationship. 

I have been blessed with the most amazing friendships, a loving family, and now the love of my life, which have allowed me to witness and experience, first hand, how beautifully life changing true relationship can be. I am inspired by how it moves us, lights us up, and shapes our histories. The invisible magnetism of relationship manifests physically in the loose hand hold of lovers, the squinty eyed belly aching laugh of friends, and the shy way little ones cling to the hem of a parent. It is these real, relational moments that are my job and joy to capture.
