Meet The Team


Danielle ParhamPhotographic Assistant  Danielle Parham, Photographic Assistant & Social Media Coordinator

Danielle Parham is a Photographic Assistant with Elizabeth Burns Photography and a part-time photographer in the greater Chattanooga area. She has had a passion for photography since she was a kid and received a point & shoot camera for Christmas one year.  Her family was in the Smokies and Danielle started using her camera on a creek bank, where she saw sun rays coming through the trees and managed to capture it on camera.  She and her family still have those first pictures of those sun rays on the water in the Smoky Mountains.  Along with a passion for photography, Danielle has a special love for children, leading to a degree in Elementary Education and working with kids of all ages & abilities through the years.  At heart, Danielle is just a big kid and can play on the playground with the best of them!  Danielle also has a love of reading & learning and can be found devouring books in her free time, traveling, and spending time with her husband.
