about me

Hi there! I'm Dana. I’m a recent University of Oklahoma graduate and a reporter at The Dallas Morning News. I also take photos.

I started taking photos professionally when I was in high school in College Station after I learned the ropes on the newspaper staff, but I'd been toying around with point-and-shoots since I was little. There's something magical to me about being able to capture a moment in time with a photo.

I'm a journalist, so I'm a big believer in storytelling, and I see photo sessions as a way to tell your story — together, we get to show the world who you are, what you care about and who you love. I love to talk and laugh with people I get to photograph. It's the best part of the job.
