I cannot recommend or thank Danielle Reeder Photography enough!
I’ve been talking to Danni online over the last few months due to our shared interest in birth. I was then lucky enough to bump into her in person at a recent networking event where we hit it off and I asked her to cover my upcoming HBAC (Home Birth after C-Section).
She was amazing and not only took some fabulous shots (that arrived today in the most beautifully presented box) but was a huge support to myself and my family on the day. It really felt like a bit of a party at times with everyone there!
Her work is talented, beautiful and unobtrusive.
Thank you Danni for helping capture Eden’s first breaths and for showing me what I already knew - how amazing birth, the female body and babies truly are!

I seriously cannot recommend Danni highly enough! We were a bit unsure about how it would be having our birth documented but Danni was brilliant, so relaxed and professional. The photos are amazing, it made me so emotional looking through them and seeing the moments we never would have seen otherwise.

Danni spent a beautiful morning with us, in a place that is special to our family, snapping away and being very patient with us. The session was so relaxed, Danni just let us wander around the countryside and enjoy time together, whilst she captured some special moments! I can’t tell you how special these photographs are to us, they capture our little family perfectly and will be treasured forever! Thank you so much Danni!

If you’re looking for a birth photographer then I can highly recommend Danielle. She provides a gentle and supportive presence at the birth as well as taking some awesome pics. I was lucky enough to spend the day with her and the incredible woman pictured a couple of days ago, you can see me in the background keeping an eye on her first born.

Wow, wow, wow . . . You’ve done SUCH a fantastic job!! We absolutely LOVE the images - the style is just beautiful. It’s amazing to see what aspects you picked up on - and the use of lighting - some are really powerful shots! Thank you SO much for this Danni - it’s all quite emotional!!

Danielle is an intuitive, warm and creative photographer. She captured our family perfectly with all of our different personalities and the fun we have together. Thoroughly recommend!

I’m so, so happy that we asked Danni to do our birth photography and I would recommend her to anyone who is expecting. It’s amazing to be able to look through photos of Florence when she was just minutes old, as well as seeing me & my husband supporting each other. We will definitely be asking Danni to do our next family photographs after such a wonderful experience!

Family Documentary Session | Family of three cuddled up on the the bed whilst young boy rests his head on mothers baby bump.
We had such a lovely time with Danni when she came in to our home and captured some natural shots of the 3 of us (plus bump!). She made us all feel totally at ease, including my toddler who normally says ‘bye bye’ to people who come in to our home wanting them to leave (embarrassing!!). He absolutely loved being subject of the camera and showing Danni all his favourite toys and games. Danni got some beautiful photos of him just doing ‘normal life’ that we will treasure forever. Especially when these days feel like a distant memory. Pregnancy with baby no2 has gone a bit unnoticed with having a toddler about so having these pictures at this significant time in our lives means the world. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
