Hi, I’m Danielle, a photographer based in Northern California.

Human essence, framed in a picture

I am the Optimistic Moody Foodie! Yes, okay, I'm a luxury portrait photographer, but by 6 or 7 pm, it's me hovering over my partner's shoulder, as he creates some magic in the kitchen. I'm the official "Test Taster" and I take that role very seriously! (but it's really just a way for me to get some bites in early). After that, it's just us, delicious food, and a movie... or our favorite show of the week.

In the world of photography, you get to share a captured moment with other people.

Throughout the year, you may see your images on marketing materials. And the best part is you will not only receive credits to purchase prints for your own senior portraits but you have multiple chances to win other prizes when your friends book from your referrals in return. 

It starts with your fun and unique on-location modeling session and then we start promoting!


If you are currently a Junior or Senior, you could be perfect for this! You can earn a free senior portrait photography session, edited digital images, and win a canvas wall portrait, and cash at the end of the year! All you have to do is tell your friends about me. No, you don’t have to be a supermodel…just be an outgoing, fun-spirited person! As an Ambassador, you will receive a full portrait session. After your session, I'll meet with you to review your proofs. We'll choose 2 images for your Senior Ambassador modeling watermarked promotions, which you'll receive free of charge. You will also receive Senior Ambassador cards, which are business cards with your name, and my studio information; these are yours to hand out to your friends and other Junior and Seniors. Additionally, I'll tag you with studio-branded (watermarked) photos on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. This requires you to like my Facebook, IG, and Twitter page so I can tag your photos. A parent or legal guardian is required to sign the contract so that I know that they are fully aware of your intentions of representing Danielle Kinney Imagery.  It's a good idea to have your parents be friends on Facebook, IG, and Twitter, so I can tag them as well. This will help you get more friends to bring in your Rep Cards. Whichever Senior ambassadors who have the most Rep Cards brought in by their friends by June 31st, 2024 will win a prize!



It’s simple. Complete the online entry application found at the bottom of this page. Then, I will evaluate your application to see if you qualify for your complimentary session. I am looking for outgoing and active individuals, who are not shy and are willing to brag about their sessions. I don't decide on Ambassadors based on your activities or clubs, this isn't a college entrance essay. I am just looking for someone outgoing and willing to work hard as our Senior Ambassador.


You must schedule your Senior portrait session before April 30th, 2023.

You will be representing our company so we ask that you actively promote Danielle Kinney throughout the year.

I rely on your support and active models will be rewarded!

I get creative ideas throughout the year and will call on my models to help test them out! Although it’s not required, I appreciate your help.

Have a GREAT time and enjoy your Junior and Senior year!



I am looking for students from the Class of 2023 and 2024 with outgoing personalities who like to have fun. I prefer our representatives to be involved in extra-curricular activities and willing to go the extra mile to get the job done, whatever the job may be. Your senior portraits should reflect your personality. For your mini photo session, bring a couple of outfits that represent your style. Tell me about you, your interests, and how we can show your personality and interests in your session. A limited number of representatives will be chosen from each area of high school, so apply early.

NOTE: Students must refer a minimum of eight (8) bookings to be eligible to win gift cards and other gifts. In the event of a tie, the prize will go to the student that referred eight (8) bookings first.



Your child's senior year of high school can be very expensive. You will have fees for tests, graduation, announcements, invitations, cap and gown, yearbooks and ads in them, college applications, prom, and of course, senior photos, along with so much more. Danielle Kinney Imagery is giving you the opportunity to save some money by allowing your child to become a Senior Ambassador for my studio. You MUST sign the contract with me before I book the mini-session. I will send you the contract and proposals once we have decided to move forward. By entering this contest, you are permitting Danielle Kinney Imagery to use your son’s/daughter’s first name and photograph on the blog, website, and in marketing materials. You are confirming you have the authority to commit to this. The signing of my contract and entry form in no way obligates the winners and/or parents/guardians to make purchases from Danielle Kinney Imagery. I will also answer any questions you may have about the program, feel free to contact me via phone, email, or text.
