Danie Henry Photography

Baby photos, pregnancy photography, family photosI love storytelling, which is why I love being a photographer. Whether it is pregnancy pictures, newborn pictures, or family event photography, my passion is capturing connections at the different stages of life. I love all of the stages, from newborn baby to the gracefully ageing. I have five children of my own, so I know firsthand how quickly time passes by.

I’m available for photo sessions in and around the South Bay area. While most of my work is done in  Palos Verdes, Torrance, and the Beach Cities (Redondo Beach, Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach), I also cover Los Angeles county and Orange county. We live in one of the best regions for outdoor photography year round!

Maternity Pictures

My job as a maternity photographer is to help capture the excitement, the beauty, and the connections that are already happening early on! Capturing the “baby bump” stage is such a pleasure! Pregnancy photos don’t need to be just glamour shots with a belly! But it is a time to do your hair, go somewhere pretty, and show off all that hard work! Maternity pictures are something to treasure, especially for grandchildren! It is an amazing thing to keep these pictures and hand them down for generations.

For more information, check out my Maternity Photography page. I have a lot or pregnancy picture ideas and tips to help you get the most out of this short (it feels like FOREVER) time!

Baby Pictures

Maternity pictures turn into baby picture sessions! All that work (they call it LABOR for a reason!) and here is your special package. Newborn photography is such a special part of the process and it is working as a baby photographer that really keeps me in photography. Let me help you capture some moments with your new one.

For more information, check out my Newborn Photography page.

Family Pictures

Families change so fast! What you see one year can be so different by the next! From toddler, to pre-teen, teen to young man or woman, to newly engaged to married. First time grandparents, to great grandparents! All these stages are so powerful to grab and cherish. As a family photographer, I love to help families create and share their history through family portraits, outdoor photos, and anything else you can come up with.

Vacation Photography

Many families are from out of town, and would love to capture the moments at the beach and around Southern California. I am local to Palos Verdes and the South Bay cities (Redondo Beach, Hermosa and Manhattan Beach) and within easy driving distance of Malibu and Orange County attractions like Disneyland!

For more information, check out my Family Photography page.

Adoption Portfolios

I also have a passion for helping families build Adoption Portfolios! Adoption has been close to my heart, and facilitating expectant mothers and fathers as they start out on the exciting, scary, unknown journey is one of my favorite parts. I know dozens of friends and multiple dozens of children that have adopted, and I know how important it is to capture the memories. Whether it is the first portfolio work, to the actual birth, and the all important “Gotcha Day”,  to the Finalization I want to be there to help you.

Senior Pictures

What an exciting time! Most of the time the focus is on classic “senior portraits” but how about something fun too! Senior photography doesnt have to be boring! Lets get outside, or get great shots with your senior doing something they love, that really expresses their unique personality. I love to do small scale, direct personal work with your senior. As well I also work with my good friend Marcus at People by Marcus to help make the senior portrait event OVER THE TOP with makeup, hair, stylists, and high fashion photography shoots.

Engagement Photos

Want to capture your engagement forever? For many couples, engagement might be even more important than their wedding. I hear many couples who can clearly remember their engagement, but sometimes the wedding is a little “fuzzy”.  Having professional photography there to capture your engagement is a great idea, and what better time to start the memories than right at the beginning? We also work with fantastic photographers for unique high fashion sessions and wedding photography in the South Bay.



Danie, I really can’t put into words exactly how special it was having you photograph our family!  We had so much fun and after the shoot I found myself wishing we could do it all over again.  I did not anticipate how strongly I would feel about the pictures before we saw them.  They are a testimony to me of what God has done in our family.  His goodness and how He has brought us closer together.  We love our pictures!  Thank you for taking us to such a beautiful place and for making us feel so special and comfortable.

 We would love to do it again next year!


BabyAlani Announcement 400I just want to thank you for the beautiful pictures you took of my little angel when she was just a week old! You were so gentle and patient that she was very content during the shooting. When I received the pictures I was super excited and happy to see them, they are perfect! Thank you for putting a smile on my face!





Maternity-Photography-South-Bay (17)“Danielle is talented, patient and kind! Everything you’d want in a family photographer. My husband and I experienced our very first maternity shoot with her and it couldn’t have gone better. She had not one but two beautiful locations planned for us, had perfect pose suggestions and made us feel comfortable and at ease(I was so nervous getting started!).Our comfort, trust and glowing happiness really showed in the photos. This is our first baby bump and she’s provided us with images that we’ll cherish forever! I look forward to booking newborn shots with her!! Couldn’t be happier with her work and professionalism :)”


Baby Pictures Redondo Beach“Wow, I could not be more pleased and excited after working with Danie for our daughter’s newborn photos!

Being a first time mom, I had done a ton of research on the “look and feel” that I wanted our photos to have. I had a lot of anxiety going into a shoot…”We only get the chance to take these once!” “Will she have a meltdown or a blow-out mid shoot?” “Do I need to know all the poses I want for her??”

Danie eased all of these anxieties completely.

She “gets” newborn photography and masters it! She flawlessly captured the cozy, sleepy, sweet look that I wanted for our little one. She was such a pro at posing our baby and setting up adorable props, wraps and bows.

She set the tone for the shoot by allowing us to take our time feeding our girl and getting her nice and sleepy. She let our baby set the pace of the shoot and was so patient and kind. She had a heater set up to make the room cozy and she soothed our girl so well any time she got fussy. The entire experience felt so relaxed and I could tell she really took her time to capture the perfect shots- which she did!

When I saw the finished product, I cried. She shot the most beautiful photos of our little girl in her first week of life. Such a priceless gift!

I can’t recommend Danie enough!”
