Donna Kay is an amazing photographer. She makes you relaxed from the moment you meet and manages to capture the exact look you want while making it seem effortless. I've always hated the unnatural poses photographers typically place you in and then tell you to act natural. Donna Kay points out an area she feels will make a good background and then allows you to get comfortable in the setting so you don't have to act natural for the picture but you are natural.Instead of hoping one or two good photos would come out of the photo session, I walked away from my session with Donna Kay having to choose which photos I liked best out of many great photos. The next time I need photos for me or my family, I'll be calling Photography by Donna Kay. I can't say enough good things about her.
Dear Donna Kay I could not thank you enough for capturing some of the first moments of our little girls life in such a beautiful way. Being a new mom there are many days that may not run so smooth but you made Blakely’s newborn pictures a day and memory full of fun, smiles, laughs and ease. You are such a natural at capturing those moments that showed her true personality. Now those moments are ones that we can keep forever. When I was looking at her pictures it was more that just a photograph, I could see her little personality shine through with each face she made. We highly recommend you to anyone looking to capture those beautiful moments in their lives. You have such an amazing talent! Thank you for everything you have done! Sincerely...Meredith Devine
We were very impressed with our experience with Photography by DonnaKay. She captured such a precious time in our life: our newborn son. She was so gentle and patient with him and the outcome was absolutely stunning! We are looking forward to our next photo session. I would highly recommend Photography by DonnaKay!Brendan & Jennifer Talty
We just wanted to let you know how much our family enjoyed our photo session on the beach. The youngest wasn't in the best mood on the way there, but in no time, you had her smiling, laughing & having a wonderful time. Not only are you extremely talented, but you're great with kids.Unfortunately, it's been a few years since we have had a family portrait done. I have always wanted to have one taken on the beach, so you cannot begin to imagine how thrilled I was to have this opportunity with you! Even though we didn't know if the weather was going to hold out, it couldn't have turned out more perfect!We are so pleased with the photos. They turned out even better than I could have imagined. We will cherish them always! Just as I will cherish you! Donna, you have an amazing talent! What a blessing, when you find something you love, that you're good at! I know you will be successful, because you put your best into what you do & you do it with honesty & integrity! It's been amazing to watch as you grow your new business & I am thrilled that our family could be a part of that!Sincerely,Melissa & Chris Lawrence~Myrtle Beach, South Carolina
Donna Kay came to my house to take pictures of my 3 month old. I didn't know what to expect as my experience with photographers has been either the "cookie cutter" places at the mall or super expensive "posed" photos. I was so pleased with the work Donna Kay did from the very start. She brought all these cute blankets and hats and just started snapping away. She even got my older son to agree to being in some pictures after he got home from school and made him actually ENJOY having his picture taken! She has such an eye for what looks great and immediately puts you at ease. The photos I previewed on her camera during the shoot were awesome! I knew that I was going to have great pictures even before she left. When I got the proofs they surpassed my greatest expectation. We now have such great photos and special memories of this special time in our lives. I would recommend and encourage anyone who is wanting interesting, one-of-a-kind photos to capture their memories to use Donna Kay. She is the best! Timarree Jorgensen
I have had the privilege for DonnaKay to photograph my family twice. She has done a fabulous job during both sessions! I was so excited to get some wonderful beach shots as well while we were on vacation. She was great with my kids and very patient with them through their goofy giggles...those have been some of the best shots too. She definitely has an eye for capturing those unique, timeless images that you will cherish forever. I highly recommend her!!!~Kendra H.
I would like to take the time to tell how incredibly wonderful that DonnaKay's work is....Simply, DonnaKay's work can't be copied. She is very professional, sweet, and talent is remarkable! Her work is so important to her and you can visualize that with each photo she takes. I have found a photographer for life - thanks be to GOD! She photographed my 2 daughters and I think I will treasure these pictures forever.In addition, her large portraits/canvas prints are perfection! I have paid double the amount for prints that doesn't look as clear and beautiful. Bottom line, if you want incredible photos, memories to last a lifetime and a top-notch photographer...DonnaKay is the only choice!! ~Danielle W
Everyone that wrote reviews couldnt be anything but right! My son was a little fussy the day the photos were done and I was kind of worried that she might get frustrated with us. Let me tell you that was all in my head because she was very patient with him. The shots were great and one of my favorite photos is one of being fussy his little lip puckered out!! Only a great photographer could capture something so precious and unique! ~Emily Lutz Henkle
DonnaKay is a fabulous photographer! I've had two sessions with her & wonderful pictures to show for it. She was great with my kids and very patient. She definitely has the ability to capture photographs in such a beautiful way! ~ Kendra Kirby Haneline
