I photograph and paint real life to remind you of "When" later.

your story deserves to
be told.

I have been in your shoes.

Most days, there is a coffee in my hand at all times to keep up.

The kids (even furry ones) ran in with mud on their feet, and my to do list looks like “wow, I should have done that yesterday.”

But here’s the thing—now is the perfect moment. Because the perfect moments that I see all happen when things are a little not perfect!

Muddy paws, band-aid knees, “oh, he keeps making that face,” all are a little beautiful to me.

Capturing your story doesn’t always happen in the perfect moments—they happen in the real moments.

Reality sets the stage for something beautiful and no matter what your stage of life—there is a story to tell.

So what’s your story?

I encourage you to take the time now because yes, it will never be “perfect”—and that’s where the beauty of your story actually lives.

DANITA BROOKS

photographer + artist

I am a wife, a mom of 3, a dog mom, an artist, a photographer, a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, and yes, I could keep going. 

Life is busy.

So I paint and photograph things that evoke nostalgia—my goal is to create images to reflect fun memories, movement, and joy.

You need spaces to leave the rush of life for just a moment. Or, on the flip side, a fountain of nostalgia to take you back to a time when joy was your first thought.

Create space in your home for meaningful conversations, times of reflection, or to enjoy expressions of joy.

I’m honored you are here—take a look around and see the latest works as I create them.
