I've been in love too many times to count... it happens easily you know. with a smile, a gesture, a song. i fall in love with people and colors and certain times of the day. i want you to fall in love, with yourself, your partner and your photos.
I'm here to get you in your feels. 
I want to tell your story. The Beginning. The end. The whole thing. I want your photos to sing your Song, Whether Thats 2005 Emo, The Beatles Or Cardi. You Should Know, I'm Here For It All.

Have you ever been in love?
do you want me to describe it to you?

I've been photographing in Kansas City for 10 plus years, capturing beautiful humans and their stories. 


I'm a lifestyle and love story photographer based in KC - but I'm always down for travel.
I come from a small farm town and you know how those are - intimate. and thats exactly what I aim for in my photos. Those quiet moments, the ones you might not even realize are happening. as well as those loud belly laugh ones you never want to forget.
when it comes to your session i'm there to be your hype girl. your third wheel. you need a drink, i got you. bow tie tied, boom. done. dad jokes? you know i got those. i'm not only there as your personal photo guru, but to capture you perfectly as you are.

darling, i'm different


im a plant loving cat mom, netflix binging travel junkie, obsessed with hair dye and owning a library that rivals belle's (if you know, you know). 

when i have a free moment i love spending quality time with my people, redecorating my home for the millionth time, traveling, and discovering new tasty eats in kc.

i'm always down for adventures, especially with a camera. 

Let's get personal.



-The Ray Family

Dana is the best! She has captured so many moments for my family that we will treasure for a lifetime. She has helped welcome our babies home with newborn pics, she’s captured their cake smashes for 1st birthdays and continues to document us as our family grows! She is patient, friendly, and her talent and creative eye continues to deliver. You will not be disappointed!

"best decision ever"


Dana is professional, organized, and patient. I've been in 3 weddings photographed by Dana and recently had family pictures done for my Christmas card. Weddings (and family pictures, for that matter) are always chaos and she does an excellent job of ensuring that the experience is pleasant. Dana is also an incredibly talented photographer. I came to her with a crazy idea of getting a family picture of myself and my husband with our 5 goats, 4 cats, and 3 dogs and she was able to flawlessly execute the finished product. When working with Dana it's apparent that she has extensive experience and...



Dana is a warm and welcoming photographer who provides exceptional quality in her work. I am definitely an awkward subject, but Dana made me feel at ease and I actually enjoyed a headshot shoot we did! She also had the patience to shoot our family photos in the Fall, which included two very distracted and high energy huskies. The location was also absolutely packed with people, but from the photos we received you would think we were the only ones there! She has an incredible eye for composition and makes the whole experience fun and relaxed!

"Highly highly recommend"

-Hailey G.

I got my senior pictures done by Dana and it was one of the best photo shoots I’ve ever been to. She makes you feel so comfortable and beautiful! I can definitely see myself going back to dana for more shoots in the future and...


-Marti S.

Picture a bride stressed from postponement in the middle of a pandemic without a backup plan, that was 100% me contacting Dana constantly with changes and updates. We rescheduled a private ceremony on short notice and planned a later reception, all with our photography never in question. 
Throughout all the ups, downs, and changes to pandemic guidelines, Dana showed amazing patience, passion, and professionalism throughout her work. She entered all communication with me with empathy for the situation while answering every question or concern with care. When it finally came time for our wedding day(s), she was meticulous, creative, and supportive with every moving piece. 
Not to mention, the pictures she captured for us are absolutely stunning beyond our greatest belief. For two people that don’t enjoy to be in front of the camera, our love and personalities shine through each captured moment, all because she helped us feel confident and comfortable.
