After my first shoot with Donatella, and seeing the results, I swore I’d never use another photographer again. Her ability to capture my essence is unrivalled, and her photos worked wonders in helping me attract the right clients for my business. People always asked me, “Who took your photos? They’re stunning! They’re so YOU!” One of her images also graces the cover of my first published book.

When it was time to rebrand I no longer lived in Byron Bay, so I flew there from Adelaide to spend a day with Donatella, knowing it was well worth the effort and investment to experience her magic again.

Donatella’s work is breathtakingly beautiful. She produces photos that are beyond my expectations and also what I thought was possible. Her ability to put me at ease, make me feel fabulous, and reveal the true me is astonishing.

An artist with a huge heart, she is a ball of energy, fun and generosity, and I adore her.

Donatella is one of a kind. Book your session with her now!

Donatella is an incredibly gifted photographer and artist… in fact she’s in a league of her own. She has an ability to capture a unique beauty in all that she photographs, producing images that are utterly captivating. Working with her is such a fluid and fun experience. She knows what she wants to get from a photo, and knows when she’s got it. With an incredible eye for detail, she has a way of clearly directing her models so that all the elements are in place.

She has an incredibly generous nature, and often works selflessly to help others achieve their dreams. I can only say good things about this woman…not only as such a talented and hard working photographer, but as a beautiful woman, with a very big heart.

Donatella photographed our fashion campaigns. As director, I was impressed with her style and professionalism, her beautiful international ideas, and speed solving our many issues with plans B and fast communication. She did help us to find the models the make up artist, she knew how to style with attention to details. As well she offered her knowledge of the area for the best locations we could imagine for the shoot. She was fun and full of wit while she did put everyone at ease while working efficiently and fast, during all the process. I do recommend her to anyone that needs an outstanding photographer with a international feel for their business. Jake and I wanted to thank you. Our family portraits are breathtaking. You have managed to reflect each of our personalities while capturing priceless moments that portray our family story. We now have beautiful family photos that we will treasure for a lifetime. We are truly amazed at how you were able to relax and capture the most beautiful photos even when at times the children were not happy to cooperate. You were always patient, calm, fun and made the whole experience from start to finish an absolute joy.

Donatella Parisini is my ‘go to’ photographer. Whether it’s lifestyle, high end fashion or weddings, for me, stand out photography is about communicating a moment with elegance, intelligence and beauty. This is Donatella’s intuition. She has perfected this. She is the real deal.

I met Donatella in 2005 and since then have worked with her on many different occasions. I have never met anyone quite like her. She has the eye and heart of a true artist, mixed with a fun and easy to work with attitude that makes everyone around her feel comfortable and beautiful. Donatella has a natural gift of feeling and capturing special moments. But also the gift of bringing out the best in you, creating memories of moments in time you can treasure forever. But her creativity has no limits. What ever your occasion for a shoot, Donatella has the ability to feel what is needed and works with what is there. We had shoots in freezing conditions, not much or too bright light, moody people or early or late hours. Donatella still manages to make jokes and keep everyone going.

I can honestly say that working with Donatella made the whole day relaxed and fun for a change.  After 14 years in the Baby wearing Industry, photo shoots have always been a stressful and exhausting process, but not since we met her.We chose not to use models, but real people yet Donatella had a natural warmth and ability to put everyone completely at ease, which shows in the images. Our photos are AMAZING and the best we’ve ever had. We have now been asked a few times by Baby and Family Lifestyle Magazines if they can use some of our beautiful images for articles. Working with Donatella is a pleasure and we are delighted with the finished product!
