Hi There! I’m Donna. Welcome to DonnaShoots!
I live in – and LOVE – New York City! It’s a little loud and lots of fun, like me. And it provides me endless opportunities to hone my craft. As a photographer, I love to capture the unseen, to create photographs of people’s inner worlds – people how they really are, not how they’re “supposed to be.”
I’m very relaxed and open, very emphatic to who people are, how they feel in front of the camera. I love to make people enjoy being photographed. I love to make my subjects feel like they’re just hanging around with their best friend. The result is often a picture of the beauty I and others see in you, not a record of your fears and discomfort with the photographic process – the lights, the backdrop, this person telling you to smile and it feels so fake. None of that! Click on this link to read the blog post about my own journey toward being comfortable in front of the camera.
I could go on and on about how much I love photography and connecting with good people through my art, but these words will probably not get you to schedule your session with me. So please look around this site and see how you FEEL when you look at my work. That will be the greatest indicator of your interest in working with me.
On a desktop in the top left corner you'll find the navigation button. On a mobile device it is on the bottom left corner (The three gold lines.) Under the Work heading you will find the different types of photography I do. (Use the drop down menu to search) The Blog header is a chance for you to get to know me on a more personal level. Often I combine my creative writing skills with my photography, and the results are pure magic. You don’t have to take my word for it. The Reviews section is where you can read real-life client reviews, along with their photographs. Under the Infoheading you will find the answers to my most commonly asked questions, as well as pricing. Finally, if you like what you see and feel, reach out to me on the Book Session page. My email address is located below for your convenience.
Thanks for stopping by!
