December Spotlight: Dana Romano, Owner of Dana Romano Photography
For the December Member Spotlight, we are featuring Dana Romano, Owner of Dana Romano Photography.
Tell us a bit about yourself and your business.
Dana Romano knows the power of images to move people. With over 20 years as a professional photographer, she has seen time and again how powerful images grab attention, evoke emotion, and move people to take action. Through her exclusive planning and design process, Dana and her team work with every business client to harness that power, creating natural-looking yet powerful brand-focused images that separate her clients from the competition.
She’s also convinced that with the right mix of elements, anyone can look amazing. With a combination of flattering lighting, lenses, angles, and the ability to coax the best expressions, she’s able to create outstanding images for her clients.
A former television news reporter and anchor, Dana was trained to see things through the eyes of a photojournalist; that drive to capture true and natural expressions continues to shape her work to this day.
A member of the Professional Photographers of America and the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce, Dana also serves as a director on the board of the South Jersey chapter of the National Association of Women Business Owners. She regularly donates products and services to an array of local charities, and is a long-time supporter of Project Graduation in Haddon Township, NJ.
She and her husband Frank share 4 kids, 4 grandkids, and a wonderfully large extended family. Aside from making people look good, her three favorite things are family, kickboxing, and a good dry red.
