Welcome! I'm Donnie.
Being a nurse, I understand that building relationships with your patients and their families in very important. Building strong relationships in the photography business is just as important. I want to get to know you and your family. I want our photo sessions to be fun and interactive not something that is stressful. The more comfortable you know your photographer the more relaxed and natural your images will look. I treat all my sessions and my clients as if they are my own family or my own session. I also enjoy hearing your vision of what type of photographs you are looking for. So do not be afraid to bring your ideas to the table! I am more than just a photographer, I am also a husband, a father and a nurse.
I am married to the love of my life, Tiffiany and we have five amazing children. They keep me very busy when I am not working between school and all their sports. During the summer I am most likely to be found at the local snowball stand or local ice cream shop. I also am a very avid coffee drinker (keeps me going, our kids are constantly go, go, go!)
I have always enjoyed photography, but my passion for capturing images began a few years ago. I had an elderly patient who had a passion for the arts. He was a painter and drawer. He showed me a picture of his parents. It was worn down and had a harsh shadows behind them. He was in tears while showing me the picture. He was upset because he had always wanted to have the image restored. He was admitted to a nursing home and knew he would never be able to have it done. Without knowing how I was going to achieve restoration on his picture, I told him I would do it for him. He was a very humble man, he looked up and said "you hardly know me, you'd do that for me?" I took the image home that night and started the restoration. I had the finished product framed and presented it to him. It was extremely rewarding to see the smile and gratitude on his face. The photo, close to a hundred years old, was one of the only photos in his room. That's when I knew I wanted to be a photographer. I want to be that photographer that creates a beautiful heirloom for your family. I want to capture an image that you are proud to hang on your walls for many years to come.
