#552The Beauty from Within

The Beauty from Within
    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[...]

#533 Family Beach Portraits {Naples, Florida)

#533 Family Beach Portraits {Naples, Florida)
This little muffin was amazingly alert and happy for her debut on the beach.  These clients are a great example of how to best use a little pop of color.  The baby would have potentially gotten lost had she also been dressed in white, like mom and dad, but by dressing her in an outfit that is a nice contrast to the parent's clothes, she really stands out and shines in[...]

#495: The Premier of Love Your Art Video

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 [...]

#459 Lover of the Light {Naples Family Photography}
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[...]

#455 Beach Portraits {Naples, Florida}
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[...]

#450 Commercial Shoot {Bonita Springs, Florida}
We have been doing more and more commercial work through the studio recently.  Thanks to The Scout Guide, we have really had fun exploring commercial photography and are excited about increasing our commercial presence.  Sweet Odin's, a fabulous Danish Bakery in Bonita Springs, hired us to photograph their grandson in the bakery for promo pieces and for in store marke[...]

#432 One Family, Five Different Ways {Family Beach Portraits, Naples Florida}

#432 One Family, Five Different Ways {Family Beach Portraits, Naples Florida}
What makes a great family portrait? Is it how people are posed? Is everyone dressed in the same color? Does it have to be formal or can it be more light-hearted and fun? The good news is that now if days, portraiture can be whatever you, the client, likes. Traditionally, family portraits were always so stiff and formal. But over the years, there has been some life bre[...]

#401 {Senior Photography, Naples Florida}
How absolutely GORGEOUS is this senior?  She did not take a bad photograph!  It took me hours to edited down her images because every single one was good.  It was freezing (well, for Naples standards) when we finally got to the beach and she was such a good sport about getting wet and boy did she rock those beach images!
