The photos of my dogs are GORGEOUS! My dogs can be a little rambunctious but Dani and Yagil were so patient and were able to capture some amazing pictures that really show their personalities. I definitely recommend Pets and People Portraits to any pet parent. I made it a priority to get pictures taken of my ten-year-old dog because she won’t be around forever and I know I’ll cherish these photos for the rest of my life.

“From the moment we arrived at the photo studio, we were welcomed and treated like family. Dani and Yagil were so excited to see our two cats – Zeke and Oliver. They gave Zeke and Oliver time to get comfortable while calmly talking/playing with them. You can definitely tell that they love animals! The photo reveal was a fantastic experience. They captured the personalities and playfulness, not only Zeke and Oliver but of hubby and I, too. To top it off, our order was personally delivered to our home! Dani and Yagil do not disappoint! We definitely plan to book again so we can get a portrait of all our 7 fur babies.”

Pets and People Portraits did an Amazing job capturing my two shih tzus in their glam shots! From getting there, hair and make up, to the last shot, this business took their time and had so much patience with my puppies to help us create beautiful memories! When we did the reveal a week later the shots were perfect! I would highly recommend! A very pleasant experience!

“There are no better photographers than “pets and people.” They have the art down and better yet, they know how to calm pets and people down to achieve greatness in their work. Highly recommended!”

“Danijela delivered on her promise to make me feel empowered, sexy, and confident. Her pampering through the sessions allowed me to be comfortable in my own skin and the star of my own show. Danijela’s photographs truly captured the essence of my confidence and vulnerability. It was an uplifting experience that I recommend to every woman.

I cannot say enough about Pets and People Portrait Studios. Everything from the studio venue which is amazing to the absolute care I received from both Dani and Yagil. Dani is so wonderful during your pre-session wardrobe selection, helping you pick out just the right attire to suit your personality and perhaps even going out of your comfort zone. She spends the time to get just the right emotion from you revealing your true self and personality. But more than that she is able to capture your true emotion and even able to unveil parts of you that maybe you did not even know were there. She is so patient and kind and works very hard to make sure every shot is perfect for you. I highly recommend Pets & People Studios for a special one-of-a-kind experience.

“Working with Dani was one of the most delightful experiences I can recall.  It began with a phone call not long after I responded to something I saw on social media.  I knew right away that Dani’s project was special and I wanted to be a part of it.  40 women over the age of 40, telling their story through photographs with Dani on the other side of the camera is empowering, enlightening, inspiring and motivating.

Meeting Dani to pick out the wardrobe and get to know one another a bit before the actual shoot was delightful.  Dani is warm and inviting and I felt comfortable and welcomed into her home just like we had been old friends.  On the day of the photo shoot, I felt like Cinderella!  From the lovely woman that did my make-up perfectly, to the array of tasty treats Dani had prepared and my bottomless cup of coffee… she thought of everything to make me my best.  I do love to smile, so it was even easier with Dani giving me some encouragement and tips on how to look and feel like my most perfect self.  Hours flew by and I enjoyed every moment… part 1

“We met again to view the photos and narrow them down to the ones I loved and wanted to give to my husband and girls, plus the one for the final project.  It was very difficult to choose because Dani truly captured my true essence and I was blown away at how many of the shots I truly loved.  I love photos of myself.  That is rarely the case, but these were exquisite.  What a gift!

I will always cherish the time I got to spend getting to know Dani.  I sincerely consider her a friend and can not wait to hopefully meet the other woman that walked the beautiful path that Dani so lovingly created. “

My experience with 40 over 40 was amazing! As I am at 49 and holding for a few more months from the big 5-0, I wanted to commemorate, embrace & celebrate my age. Dani truly did a wonderful job helping with that! She put a lot of time & dedication into working with me with a consultation on clothing and background options. It was truly wonderful to have my hair & makeup done for the shoot too; knowing someone was taking care of that, took off a lot of pressure the day of. Women of all ages, shapes & sizes want to feel like a superstar/model sometimes & Dani made that happen. We are our own worst critics but with so many truly amazing photos to choose from, it was so easy to see my own beauty. As someone who normally dislikes photos, I was mesmerized by them & had trouble deciding on my favorites. Ladies – Take the picture (not behind the camera), flaunt your insecurities, flaunt your individual beauty & show the world how wonderful you are.
