2018 Headshot Special | Specials

Happy Wednesday! I hope your week is going well!

Following up on last week's Brand Guide Freebie- As promised, I have something special for you! What is it?

The 2018 Headshot Special!

Typically, the only specials I hold are the seasonal Lifestyle Mini Specials (which will be coming soon btw- Spring Minis will be held on May 5 & 6 so save the date if you'd like to snag one! Booking for the Spring Mini Special will open mid March) BUT, this year I decided to try something new in the meantime :)

I want 2018 to be YOUR year! To get it off to a strong start, why not update your headshots!

Here are the details

The Mini Headshot Special will be booked in 60 minute increments- with makeup taking place first, photo session to follow.

This special is $425 and includes the following: 
- Professional makeup application for 1
- 20 minute headshot session for 1* 
- One outfit
- Your choice of 3 retouched high-resolution images (w/ option to purchase additional)

*Full body photos will be included, for a diverse final gallery to choose from!

To take advantage of this special: You must be located in (or willing to travel to) the Washington, DC Area (Alexandria, VA). Your session must be booked no later than February 1, to be photographed on February 24. All headshot sessions will be photographed at an awesome indoor (and outdoor- weather permitting) location in Northern Virginia!

Sound good to you?

Yes! This is just what I need!


If you're ready to book, DON’T DELAY! There WERE 6 spots available on Monday, but now? There's just one left. Booking opens first to the mailing list, then to the general public, so if you want a greater likelihood of securing your preferred time for specials in the future, you should probably sign up :)

Not sure if this is what you need? Check out the regular business session packages here to see if one of those would be a better fit for you!

Well, I think that's it!

If you have a question that's not answered here, feel free to shoot me an email! I look forward to hearing from you soon and creating awesome business imagery with you next month!

Kreative Sentiments | Washington, DC Brand Photographer

We are midway through the second week of a new year... time just doesn't stop moving does it? 😩 As a business owner, time has a special way moving around these parts (too fast! lol), because there is always something to be done.

That simple fact is one reason why I enjoy photographing other business owners so much... because for a couple of hours, you don't have to worry about clients and their needs, it's all about you!

I had such a great time with sisters Kim & Kelley of Kreative Sentiments for their brand session, and I am in love with the resulting images! They are so sweet and it was a joy to capture their beauty, lovely personalities, and sisterly bond in photographs. 💖


Hear from Kim & Kelly on their experience with DFinney Photography:

"Danielle's work is AMAZING! Her eye for detail is like no other and she has this way of making you feel comfortable in front of the camera while photographing you. Additionally, she really takes the time to understand the look and feel that you are going for with respect to your shoot. Naturally your outfits play a huge role in this, so she takes the time to know what your outfits are before hand, and makes excellent recommendations where needed. We trusted Danielle to capture the essence of our "sisterliness" on camera, being familiar with her quality of work, it was a "NO brainer" when it came to deciding who we wanted to take our brand photos.

Our brand session with DFinney Photography was INCREDIBLE! We had so much FUN working with Danielle! She was extremely organized and selected specific backgrounds and locations within walking distance of one another. And she was very patient, giving excellent direction to ensure that she got the photos she needed and images that we would love. Danielle is extremely professional, her editing process is seamless, she always goes the extra mile for her clients, and we couldn't be happier with our photos."

Shalom Baranes | Washington, DC Business & Headshot Photographer

Good Thursday afternoon to you :)

I hope the week has been treating you well! This week I took headshots for one of my favorite architecture firms to work with (to be shared in another post coming soon ;) and it reminded me that I never posted these images from another firm I had the privilege of working with recently!


In late 2014 and early 2015 I worked with Shalom Baranes Associates to take photos for their site redesign! Shalom Baranes is one of the top architecture firms in DC and in 2013, was the most active architectural firm in the DC metro with 67 active projects! So to say I was excited was an understatement :) I worked with Julie in Marketing to arrange photographing headshots of leadership and environmental portraits of their collaborative office environment.


I really appreciated that they wanted the photos shot in such a way that hierarchy wasn’t evident- so no one person would look more important than another. I enjoy doing corporate headshots because I’m able to put people at ease and have them see that taking photos doesn’t have to be an unpleasant experience :) 

Here are a few of my favorite headshots & environmental portraits and you can check out the full leadership page here!


Hear from Julie on their DFinney Photography experience:

“Danielle was a pleasure to work with and put everyone at ease. Our session included both environmental portraits and head shots for our new website. The final product was just what we were looking for! Danielle was also very willing to accommodate us in any way, which can often be challenging when you are dealing with 20+ schedules.”

Thank you so much Julie! I really enjoyed working with everyone at Shalom Baranes and look forward to working with you guys again :)

If you’re interested in having photos taken for your business and would like to have the DFinney Experience yourself, email me and schedule your session today! 

Dickson Wine Bar | Washington, DC Business Photographer

Happy Tuesday lovelies!

One of the last sessions to share that I didn’t get a chance to blog over the past few months is a session I did with Dickson Wine Bar a couple months ago. You might remember this beautiful location from the Neon + Neutral Editorial I did last year. The manager Ed was kind enough to let us use this beautiful venue for the shoot so I shot a few photos of him and the bar in exchange :)

Be sure to go visit Dickson when you get a chance- the food and drinks are great and I’m sure Ed would be happy to see some new faces :)
