I paint nostalgic images to remind you of your story or capture your story in real life in pictures.

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 happen BEST when things are a little not perfect!

Capturing your story or creating a calming space in your home doesn’t always happen in the perfect moments—they happen in the real moments.

Reality sets the stage for something beautiful no matter 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. Most days, there is a coffee in my hand to keep up with the pace.

Every member of our house has questions, the dogs run in with mud on their paws, and I have what seems like an endless list of checkboxes I need to push to the next day.

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.
