We Photograph What YOU Love!
We know how fast-paced life is – the days are long and the years are short. You’re a mom and you have so many things to get done in a day. You love your family and want photos to display on the walls of your little angels. We love capturing those special moments in your child’s life: them sitting up at 6 months, turning 1 year old, maybe you’ve added another child to the family and need an updated family portrait, or maybe your baby is in their final year of high school. We get it! You love them and want to remember this moment forever. We take the stress out of finding a photographer. We have an assistant on hand to make your session go smoothly. We provide a safe and warm environment for you that is never rushed. Our sales process is helpful and there is never any pressure. We offer payment plans, too, as we know that things come up and, let’s face it, kids are expensive. Our main goal is to help you decide which images you want to display in your home so you can get in and get on with life. The entire process from the initial inquiry to your portrait delivery is handled in a professional and caring way. Life is busy and can get stressful at times. Having your portraits taken shouldn’t be. Let us help you remember the ones you love milestone’s in art forever. Even Dad will say how much fun he had having us photograph his family! Promise.

Things to know
- General Questions
What are your studio hours?
We are by appointment only, out door studio only.
How do I schedule a session?
To schedule your portrait session, please call the studio at 319.664.3747 or fill out the contact form. When you call, we will also set up your ordering session. Ordering sessions are usually a week or two after your portrait session.
When we schedule your session, please have a credit or debit card for your Session Reservation fee. We require a $200 advance when we schedule your photo shoot to reserve your date and time. We do accept check, but cannot hold your appointment until we receive payment. When you come in for your ordering appointment and place your portrait order, the entire $200 advance goes toward your purchase.
What is an ordering session?
Your ordering session is where you will see your images for the first time. Your images will be displayed on a large screen for easy viewing, and the images will be set to music. We have fantastic ordering software that makes your ordering process go very smoothly. We can compare images to make selecting the perfect portrait a breeze. Our trained and friendly sales staff will also assist you in choosing the appropriate image sizes for your home. We also can show you custom collages with your beautiful portraits so you see what the final product will be. We allow an hour for your ordering session.
Anyone who is vital in the ordering process should be at the ordering session. You will place your order that day and your payment is due during the ordering session. We accept cash, check, Visa/Mastercard/American Express, and Discover Credit or Debit cards.
I need help with how and where to display my portraits. Can you help?
Yes! Once your images are selected with our software, we are able to display them on your wall in your home. It’s very simple. All you need to do is provide us with a picture of all the wall spaces in your home you are thinking of displaying your art. (Above the couch, entertainment center, hallway, children’s room, etc.) This will allow you to see your portraits in your own home and allow us to create collages and wall groupings that fit your personal style for you to enjoy for years to come!
Do you have any tips for how to take pictures of my wall space?
Yes! Tips for taking pictures of your wall spaces:
– Take your pictures as straight on as possible
– Try to include part of the floor and ceiling (if possible)
– Measure something in the image close to the display area (such as the back of the couch, lamp, etc) that is at least 12″ or stand up a ruler or yard stick near the display wall
– E-mail your JPEG photo(s) ahead of time to email@example.com or bring them with you to your ordering session. You can also bring your camera with the images on it to the ordering session.
How long do orders take?
Once you have placed your order, most orders are ready in 3 weeks for pickup. Gallery wraps and other custom products may take longer. If a holiday occurs during your estimated time, please add an extra week for order arrival. We will call you when your order arrives.
Our session fees start at $125. We have many custom products, beautiful albums, gallery wrap canvases, metal prints, framed wall portraits, gift prints, and more. Each session is different, so please call the studio at 319.664.3747 to receive information about pricing and collections. We will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have about clothing, props, locations, and special ways to make your portraits unique.
We keep only the images you have ordered for 90 days after your portrait order arrives. You may place a reorder after your initial order if you have forgotten a gift print for a family member or maybe still have your heart set on a particular image. We recommend placing your complete order during your ordering session.

Can’t say enough GREAT things about Danielle and Moore Photography! Such a great experience! We will definitely be back when our next son is a senior! Thank You!
From the moment I contacted Danielle regarding scheduling a photo shoot for the first time, I was blown away by her friendly and patient, professional demeanor. She worked with me to find colors, outfits, poses, and backgrounds that felt natural to our family. I love how she customized everything for our two kids. We have had many photo shoots with her over the past three years, including indoor and outdoor family shoots, newborn, six month, and one year child photos, and family photo shoots for our annual Christmas card. Danielle is always so patient and calm and friendly. Working with babies and toddlers who are wiggly and fussy at baseline and getting the amazing pictures she does requires a lot of skill! We’re so happy with the many images she has captured of our kids and family the past few years.
My family and I have had the pleasure of working with Danielle for almost 10 years. When we became first time parents I knew I wanted to have quality photos to last a lifetime! I found this with Moore Photography and we have since been hooked! Fast-Forward 22 months later and we welcomed twin girls into our family, without hesitation Danielle was our pick again! Not only did she take AMAZING photos of our sweet twins, but she came to our home to do so! What a wonderful, caring, and thoughtful person! The heart she pours into her work speaks of her character and her burning desire to provide you with photos you will love and look at forever. The memories my family of six(yes we added another), have created over the years for Christmas cards are those we speak of often. The time and effort put into these EVERY year show passion and desire to give us just want! Danielle is the best in the business! She will forever photograph my family.
Danielle has done numerous photo shoots for us throughout the years and we have absolutely loved both her and her work. She makes the process fun and has so much patience with us as since neither my husband nor I love being in front of a camera. The images we have received from Danielle will be something we treasure for a lifetime.

Danielle did a phenomenal job nailing my vision for my brand photos for Empower Her Co. She was full of creative ideas and the quality of the images was off the charts.
