My name is Dana. I grew up in a small town in Michigan. I keep busy these days as a wife, stay-at-home mom of two boys, freelance graphic designer, an online store owner, and an amateur photographer.
I started getting into photography after I had my first son, Jude, in 2012. I purchased a Canon EOS T3 Rebel camera right before he was born and got to work watching YouTube tutorials and bugging my photographer friends for tips. I took 1 photo a day of Jude for over two years. I never missed a day. It was stressful keeping up with it, but I learned a lot, and having the memories are priceless! After I had my second son, Oliver, in 2014, I tried to keep up with the daily photos but I had to let it go. I still take lots of photos of my boys, just not every day 🙂
If you have photos that you would like retouched, I would love to help! As a graphic designer, I have an extensive background with Photoshop and Lightroom. You can contact me at DanaLaureano@gmail.com for a price quote.
I have been asked by several people if I will do photoshoots. For now I am sticking with pictures of my family and volunteering at the Humane Society. If you are looking for a great photographer in Grand Rapids, Michigan, I recommend either Jen Q Photography or Heather Cisler Photography!
