What a special little guy. Not only cute and adorable, but a perfect subject. I’m lovin’ pet photography!
I’m a photographer – but that doesn’t define me. What’s most important to me in life is relationships . . . with loved ones . . . with friends . . . with colleagues . . . and yes, even with clients. Whether long-standing or not, I love the connection that forms between people, that goes beneath the surface with genuine feelings of well-being towards one another.
So when one of my best friends goes through a battle with breast cancer, I celebrate when she emerges victorious, having fought with courage, dignity, positivity, and yes, even a great sense of humor. And then my creative nature steps in with a vision of how to show through my craft, her beautiful spirit. It kicked in when she shared a poem with me that she had come across that in a lot of ways exemplified where her journey has been leading her.
I thank you, Theresa, for trusting me even though you were unsure as I sort of pushed you along with my camera. Your heart and your sassiness won out over your insecurity and I hope the photos will be a reminder to you of how special you are!
Little Kaylee came by for her one year old session . . . with her parent’s hopes that she was over her cold bug. You know how it goes with little ones – seems like they are getting well one day, and then the next, not so much. Mom was feeling like it didn’t go very well – but we did get some good shots of this sweet, adorable little girl.
My latest doggie subject, Paolo the dappled dachshund. Since it’s the holiday season, I’ve added some word overlays to some of the photos. You can click on each individual picture to see it enlarged. Also, if you visit my Donna Johnson Photography facebook page, you will find a great mini-session special going on.
My friend Tamika has gone through the ordeal of fighting breast cancer. The day before her surgery I got together with her and her family for pictures. Turns out, that was the day before she was found to be cancer free! Many adjectives come to my mind, both while being around Tamika, Will, Micah and Julia and as I edit their photos. Courage, perseverance, dedication, unity, humor, camaraderie, devotion, faith . . . I could go on.
This family photo shoot was more than just any ordinary photo shoot. Because I’ve known Celeste forever and thus love her honey and their baby bees. Jeremy took her far far away to Oklahoma, so these days it is rare to get to see them in the flesh. Lucky for me, it was time for their family photos – that meant I got to spend extra time with them, and also take some photos that make me look good because they are all so adorable!
