Hi! I'm Denise, a portrait photographer, photography coach, styled stock image creator, insurance agency owner, daughter, sister + aunt.  I'm a Jill Of All Trades, if you will.  I was born abroad, but am Southern raised.  I spend most days sitting behind a desk at my 9-5 gig, but I love to get behind the lens on the weekends.

I majored in Fashion Merchandising while attending The University of South Carolina (Go Cocks!) + like to think that degree helps when clients contact me regarding wardrobe decisions for their upcoming sessions.  I spend my free time trolling Hobby Lobby (especially during the Christmas season), vineyard hopping, curling up on my couch with a good book + glass of Cabernet or binging on some of my favorite shows like The Walking Dead or Game of Thrones.  Most Sunday mornings when I'm not at a session you can find me at Elevation Church where I love to worship with my family + eGroup members.

My photography sessions are about emotional connections, rather than capturing the perfect image.  I want your memories to be something you can look back on with a bright smile.  It's all about the experience from start to finish for me.  If you've read all of that + feel like we'd be a great match for each other I'd love for you to reach out to me! Shoot me an email, give me a call or we can even meet for coffee (Amelie's + Starbucks are my faves!) + discuss your session.  Also, make sure to sign up for my Newsletter to keep up with everything going on at DBP.  I look forward to hearing from you!
