#549Times they are a Changin’…New Studio, New Vision, New Outlook On Life

Times they are a Changin'...
Hello out there!  Are you there? The past few months have been a time for great change for me, personally and professionally, and the fact of the matter is, I haven't really been sure how to share all this transformation with you, so as a result, so I've been flying somewhat under the radar. But after months of  introspection, I am feeling more clear with the directio[...]

#520 Children’s Fine Art Portraiture {Europe}

#520 Children's Fine Art Portraiture {Europe}
I have been talking recently about the Environmental Portrait.  I simply love working with my subject within the scope of a larger setting, like a hotel or even a city, and using those surroundings to my advantage.  I happen to think that the background of a photograph can add so much more to the story when done the right way.  It can add so much more depth to the pho[...]

Behind the Scenes with Heather Donlan photography {Rovinj, Croatia}

The studio has just returned from an amazing 3-week adventure through Italy and Croatia.  When I travel, it's one of the few times I really get to work and push myself as an artist.  Much of what I do while traveling is a bit more experimental, enabling me to work on my own craft.   Because many of you out there have been requesting more information, Heather Donlan Ph[...]

#506 Fine Art Work at Shannon Green Collection {Naples, Florida}
Our dear friends over at The Shannon Green Collection asked us to hang some of my Fine Art work from The Everglades Sessions in her new studio space and I couldn't be more excited!  Shannon Green has the most unusual pieces of jewelry here in Naples and her studio is simply just a space that feels good.  I find when I drop by for a visit, her studio is so inviting, yo[...]

#466 Ma'am, Hand over the camera... {Naples, Florida}
We all know that as mothers, we are notorious for documenting so many milestones in our children's lives; whether it be through photography, scrapbooking or some other creative outlet to record the big events in their lives.  We are there at every lost tooth, every first day of school and yes, every holiday recording what was said, what was worn and any other delightf[...]

#438 Spectacular Alaska

#438 Spectacular Alaska
As many of you know, I hardly ever shoot landscapes.  I'm a portrait photographer through and through, but recently I came off a vacation to Alaska where I was just amazed by the scenery.  The absolute grandness and vastness of the Alaska terrain left me speechless.  Here are a few shots from my trip.  Some were taken through the plane window, so do excuse the reflect[...]

#414 {Wedding, Costa Rica}

#414 {Wedding, Costa Rica}
My cousin was married in Costa Rica last month.  I was a guest at this wedding, but I tell you it just wouldn't feel right for me to go to a wedding and not bring my camera.  I wouldn't know what to do with myself!   So here are a few candids from the ceremony, all shot from my seat:)  After working over 500 weddings, there are a few tricks I know to getting great sho[...]

#409 A Year With Hudson

#409 A Year With Hudson
Last week marks a year since my son was born.  He spent his first 10 days in the NICU, and if I ever thought 9 months of pregnancy was long, those first 10 days after he was born felt like an absolute eternity.  It's been a full year, and I am just now finally able to look at pictures of him with tubes everywhere, my fragile little bird, and not burst out in tears.  I[...]

#375 {Fine Art Photography}
As many of you know, I am working on a personal project in The Everglades.  I had to incredibly opportunity of photographing one of my former client's who has since become a rising star with the Pacific Northwest Ballet in Seattle.  She was back for a visit and I seized the chance to photograph her out in the Everglades.  She was less than thrilled to be out in the mu[...]
