Hi, I’m Danielle - a Des Moines-area photographer, wife, and working mother to two precious girls. I love summertime, running, spending time with family and friends, french silk pie, caffeine free diet Dr. Pepper, reading, skiing, and most importantly...Jesus!


I have been interested in photography since I was a little girl. I started out with a Kodak Disc camera (I just dated myself!) and took pictures of anything and everything I could. In high school I even learned how to develop my own photographs in a dark room (just dated myself again!). I've since updated my Kodak Disc camera for a professional one, but my passion for photography sure hasn't changed.


When I was pregnant with my oldest daughter, I knew I wanted the freedom to take professional-looking pictures of her at any time. So I buried myself in learning all about the art of photography - shooting in manual mode, lighting, editing techniques and so on. After my daughter was born, a friend saw the pictures I had taken of her and asked if I'd photograph her newborn daughter as well...and Danielle Rowland Photography took off from there!


I thoroughly enjoy working with families and being able to help them capture special moments in time. I photograph either on location in the Des Moines area, or in my home studio.


Thanks for visiting Danielle Rowland Photography – I look forward to meeting you!
