Danielle Sabol

Good morning! Grab your favorite cup of coffee or hot tea and gather around your screen as we introduce you to one of our favorite Dallas based film photographers, Danielle M. Sabol. Whether its families, weddings or simply  beautiful scenery she captures it all with grace and style.  

Heirloom: Do you have any morning rituals or things you do to get ready for a long day of editing or shooting?

Danielle: I'd love to be one of those photographers who has their sweet little morning routine and wakes up all bright eyed and bushy tailed totally ready to take on the day, but if we're being real... mornings are SO difficult for me. I haven't really mastered the whole 'waking up' thing without pouting and grumbling through the morning. I usually get up and whine a little, and cuddle up on the couch while my sweet (and patient) guy makes me some coffee. We always watch CBS This Morning together before I leave for work mostly because we love journalism, but partly because I have a major fangirl crush on Charlie Rose! It isn't a glamorous morning, but there's comfort in knowing exactly what to expect from myself before 9am. 

Heirloom: What do you like to do for fun? 

Danielle: I have a never ending fascination and love for fashion campaigns and editorials, so I spend a lot of time flipping through magazines, planning model tests, and working on building my fashion photography portfolio. If I'm not doing that I'm watching documentaries about outer space and sneaking bites of Swedish Fish. 


Heirloom: What intrigues you most about photography?

Danielle: I think it's amazing that photography enables you to create a tangible version of whatever creative desires dance around your head. There's always something to learn, something to try, someone new to shoot with. It's exciting and intriguing only because of the endless inspiration and possibilities available. 


Heirloom: Tell us about your journey into film! Is there a story?

Danielle: I began pursuing photography with intention before I had a film camera, but was encouraged by a few fellow photographers to get into medium format shortly after I picked up the hobby. They promised I would love it and they weren't wrong. I fell in love hard and fast and haven't looked back. It's taught me so much and has been invaluable in helping me explore my personal style and aesthetic.
