Donatella is a ball a pure energy; it is a complete delight to work with such an amazing dynamic and clever photographer. She is a true artist in her organic form. Her eyes read details, angles, light with a sense which is totally unique, That's what make her style original and aesthetic.

Donatella captures angles and images that only a very experienced artist can create. She has the very special gift of making everyone she photographs very comfortable and at ease with the camera. A great photographer has to have many skills...technical, creativity, personality, editing etc... Donatella excells in all these skills and her work is a testimony in itself. If you want a moment in time captured to perfection, then I highly recommend Donatella as your photographer. Her fun personality always brings out the best genuine smile in everyone.

Donatella's enthusiasm and passion for her craft made the shoot a joy - our pregnancy shoot captured everything I felt going into motherhood, and she made me feel completely at ease. The results speak for themselves and I will treasure these beautiful images forever. "

Thanks for your beautiful photos of our family.  You made us all feel very
relaxed and the whole experience was lots of fun.  You were able to bring
out the love felt between all of us during the shoot, and then capture it
beautifully in the photos. You were able to show us as a family unit, but
also capture our individuality.  The photos have a creative edge which is
different from the other photographers we have seen. If all photographers
were like you, I reckon it would be heaps of fun being a model!

Thanks again, we all just love the photos

Sharon and Hilton


The first time I met Donatella was in 2008 and the photo shoot was so
fantastic and I felt so comfortable with Donatella that I put my faith in
her again a few weeks ago.. I live in Melbourne now and knowing I was going
to be back in Byron for few days, I took the opportunity to call
Donatella and meet with her again and I wasn't disappointed. The photo's are
sexy, classy and everything I asked for and more .
 I look forward to the next photo shoot!



The photos are absolutely amazing Donatella,
 they brought Jade and I to tears the first time we viewed them.
 It instantly brought us back to the moment and how beautiful our entire day was. I was
surprised to see how many wonderful and beautiful moments where caught by you and your
Your persona and energy made both Jade and I feel clam and comfortable with you.
 Thank you for capturing our special day better then we could ever imagine.
 And yes, when we decide to have children you will be the first called to capture that
too. It is so nice to meet someone whose passion for life show in their work. I wish you
the best of luck and would be more then happy to recomend you to future clients.

When we first met Donatella we just knew choosing her as our wedding photographer was the
most perfect decision! Donatella made us feel so at ease as she 'oozed' confidence,
charisma and creativity. She  captured our day with beauty, sincerity, love and fun. We
just adore our wedding pictures and can't thank Donatella enough for the wonderful
memories she has created, you were "so good".
Donatella also suggested a "trashing of the dress" after our wedding day. We are ecstatic
with these pictures as they capture the true escense of our love for one another and our
love for the ocean. We highly recommend other newly weds partaking in the extra photo

Trudy and Adam

We had seen Donatella's photography before , and had always been impressed by her
style,so she had to be the photograper that we would choose for our wedding day,we wanted
very relaxed, informal shots, which would capture each person , and the feel for the day.
Donatella did this perfectly, totally unobtrusive, she glided around our family and
friends with a beautiful aura, everybody was relaxed, and the pictures show this. She
listened to what we wanted, and did it with grace and style. Thankyou  for the memories
in beautiful  photographs of our wedding day ,Donatella you are an angel.

With love Jane and Derris

I was looking for some very special family photographs that were not the typical cliched baby studio portraits, but which captured our bond as a mother, father and baby in the natural enviroment. I found Donatella's website and was impressed by her ability to take photos that make ordinary people look beautiful and relaxed. We travelled from Brisbane for the photo shoot and Donatella helped us plan everything so that we could just relax and enjoy the experience. The shoot itself was so much fun; Donatella took us to a beautiful ti tree lake and was obviously experienced to know how to get the most out of the setting, available lighting, and us. She even managed to get our tired and grumpy baby to smile!

We waited with anticipation for Donatella to send us the CD with our photos on it... and we were so excited to see them! They were better than we could have imagined, and she made us look so great and in love. We've had the photos for a month now, and we still love to sit down at the end of the day and look through them again, remembering what a great day we had. Now we just have to decide which ones to get printed to put on our walls- it's almost impossible to decide.
Thanks Donatella, we'll be back for updates!

Love Naomi and Neil

"Donatella was the perfect person to take our extended family photos. She made it fun and relaxed, in what could have been a slightly awkward situation! She also knew exactly how to get the best from a tired and temperamental 4 year old, which was no easy feat! We are delighted with the photos and feel she was able to create some really special images. We would not hesitate to use her again!

Julianne Crichton

In selecting a photographer I wanted to be sure it was someone that was interested in capturing the incidental moments as well as the significant ones. The photos haven't just been captured but they have been captured beautifully. Our photos reflect that of an artist, a true professional. We appreciated Donatella's demeanor on the day, making us both feel so relaxed and comfortable.

Donatella made us feel comfortable on the day we were relaxed and happy this shone through in the photos. Having all the photos on a disk has been a god send. It is so easy to print photos for family and friends at the flick of a button.

My own reflections of our shoot was that Donatella took the time to let me relax and become comfortable. As a result i have pictures that im really proud of because they show who i am and not just what i look like.

You have been both professional and personable throughout our journey to the big day and your photographs exceeded our expectations!

Rebecca and Darryl Baylosis - Wedding Photos

From the time that we first met you, we knew we had made the right choice of photographer for our wedding. Your energetic, non-stress approach put any concerns we had to rest. We knew, there and then, that it was as easy as simply providing you a time and place and you would sort the rest out. We have had nothing but rave reviews regarding the photographs. You made our spontaneous little beach wedding look highly professional. We have only one regret - not having you take photographs at the reception. Thank you for creating an amazing record of memories that will be with us forever.
