I am Donna Underwood, owner and photographer of Images by Donna U. I love nature, people and a simple lifestyle which naturally flows into my photography. This blog hosts photographs of my sessions as well as some of the photographs I take for myself because they touched my heart. Hopefully this will open a window into who I am so we can get to know each other.
Viewing life through the lens of a camera I want to help you capture breathtaking moments as they happen in everyday settings.
My soul desire as a photographer is to preserve memories that are gone in a heartbeat so you can cherish them for a lifetime.
Last night was a Honey Moon. We had lots of clouds and I thought I wouldn't get a chance to see it. But fortunately I was up at midnight when the sky was brilliant and clear. The moon had become officially full fifty minutes earlier. I have to admit it was beautiful with its amber color.
Garrett was born on May 16th and I had the honor of shooting his newborn photos with his mom and dad. He is such an angel of a baby that just hung out and slept the majority of the session which made for some adorable photos. Thank you to Christian and Aaron for allowing me to capture your memories of the new addition to your sweet family.
I entered some photographs in the Photographers Exhibition at the Gadsden Museum of Art and placed with one of them. I am thrilled with the award and the fact that my work hangs on the museum walls for all to see from May 12th to June 16th.
I have the great honor of being chosen as the photographer for the 2015 Distinguished Young Women of St. Clair County program. Distinguished Young Women is the oldest national scholarship program for high school girls. Saturday morning I met them and took their photographs for the head shots that will be used in the Program's publications, website and newspaper articles. They were all a delight to work with. Thank you for allowing me to have a part in helping you realize your dreams.
What a wonderful time I had this weekend working with our Pastor and his fiance on their engagement shoot. We traveled to the most beautiful campus in the world for background and spent the day enjoying each others company as well as getting great shots for their engagement. Thank you for allowing me to document this special time in your lives.
