Hi, I’m Danie Laurin, the owner/photographer/brilliant artist for Danie Laurin Photography in Clarksville, TN.
I have always had a love affair with photography. It started with old pictures, then cameras and film. I spent time in dark rooms and film classes at school. I hit the road with my grandparents who ran an “Old Tyme Photography” booth at the fair and summer festivals.
I started shooting for more than pleasure 5 years ago. Since then, I have taken many classes and courses given by the top photographers in the field. I also in turn teach photography to kids through 4h and community school camps.
After dabbling in several different areas I realized that my true passion lies within Amorous Lifestyle Photography, I enjoy bringing ones self to the surface and making that a piece of art.
I am the oldest and only girl out of a mess of brothers.
I am named after a character from the t.v. show “Wild Wild West”. (character occupation... hooker).
My middle name is pronounced Ter-long a sound-sah
I cannot go to sleep in an unmade bed.
All five of my children were born in different states (IL, OK, NC, TN, MI).
When I was a child I had a crippling fear of speaking in front of people. (most will not believe this if they know me now) (almost had to do health class twice...verbal essay was 60% of grade)
I have a very unhealthy obsession with Bill Murray.
I am a nail biter... Yeah yeah yeah
I took public speaking classes and self defense classes at the same time.
My first car was a 1976 Volvo station wagon, Rose the bouncing bread box.
I am a lingerie addict.Hi my name is Danie.
My favorite food is sushi. I could eat it breakfast lunch and dinner for the rest of my life!
I have a collection of pictures over 100 years old, (most of which are of my family members).
I lived in Clarksville TN once before 10 years ago.
