Sophia Loren once said, "Beauty is how you feel inside and it reflects in your eyes." The beauty from within each and every one of us will shine like a beacon if we let it. We all have beautiful gifts to share with the world: Our kindness. Our empathy. Our love. Our talents. Our loyality. Our laughter. Our joy. All these wonderful qualities that[...]
We are SO excited about our new promo video produced by the very talented Voila Cinematic out of Tampa. They came down and spent the afternoon with us here at Heather Donlan Photography and we were completely blown away by what they put together. So many of our clients come from out of state, so this video will hopefully give you all a better sense as to who we are [...]
I am always surprised by the amount of beauty that surrounds us here in Naples. I work on the beach so often, that it's really refreshing and fun to get insprired in another beautiful location. We spent over 2 hours photographing on this golf course, and hardly knew we had spent that much time out there until the sun went down and we were driving back to the club ho[...]
I photographed the wedding of this lovely client a few years back and was super excited when she called to have portraits done of her sweet grandmother last week. What a great gift for the parents of this beautiful girl to be surprised with portraits of their daughter this holiday season. Grandma and sweet Grace were both neck deep in the water by the end of the nig[...]

But over the years, there has been some life bre[...]

'Tis the season for...seniors! Aside from all our family portraits we've been busy with this time of year, we've had a surge of seniors lately which has been fun for a change. I drug Michael all over town and hopefully it was way more fun that he anticipated. Here are a few of my favorites from our afternoon together.
These client's always make the studio fun. This past year, they had a litter of bunnies just before Easter that I photographed and when they arrived last weekend for their holiday pictures they had the sweetest new kitten. I'm waiting for the pot-bellied pig next year:) Seriously, adding an animal into a studio shoot is really just like adding another child. It's [...]
