Donna Harris Photography bio picture
  • Welcome!

    I'm glad you're here!

    This blog highlights my life as a creative.
    As a creative person, my feelings are hyper-aware of the world around me. As a mom, I struggle to keep up and to strike a perfect amount of 'mommying' and me time. As a person with compromised health, I persevere and try for a healthy activity each day. Ultimately, I'm learning to live a redeeming life of grace with my husband of 15 years and my 3 wonderful little men.

    No matter the role, I am sure to live life through pictures.

    So follow my professional photography as I capture teeny babies and lovely families.

    I also share about my life journey that strives for balance in health and happiness.

Katie and Chris : Married

 I feel incredibly blessed to be part of this wedding. I’ve known Katie for years as a friend and client at the hair salon. While I couldn’t be superwoman and do her hair that day, I was glad to take a backseat as her hairstylist to instead document one of the happiest days of her life.

LOVE this moment with Katie and her dad.

In the dressing area just minutes from walking down the aisle….

The flower girl was such a cutie – she greeted every pew by saying, “Hi! Hi! Hi!” While her sweet sweet brother just lightly pulled her along.

Katie had the Irish Dancers from Clark Academy of Irish Dance entertain her guests… and boy are they talented! I could have watched them all night. THEN Katie gets up and does some dancing of her own! She is an excellent Irish Dancer!!!

Katie and Chris  – “Honored” is an understatement. I felt blessed to be included in your day and enjoyed getting to know your family and friends. I loved watching and capturing every moment of it. Thank you for including me in your lives. Congratulations!

I wish you lots of happiness in your new venture as newlyweds!

 Katie was such a sweetheart. I have to share a few ‘behind the scenes’ of her wedding story.

I Love Love LOOOOVE when a bride is sweet enough to include me on the seating chart. Not only do I get to enjoy a fabulous meal but I don’t miss photographing any of the action of the reception since I’m seated with the rest of the guests.

And how much more perfect can Katie be?!? A gift for the photographer?! Yes please! (And Thank you!) I heart my new stylish camera strap!

My associate and I had a little fun in the photo booth!

Then Katie and I dragged Chris in there. In the first frame we were all doing “the Chris”. You may remember that I mentioned earlier Chris hates, hates, hates, hates, HATES getting his picture taken (but was a good sport about it) but by the end of the night I had enough of that!  ….and tickled a smile out of him for our photo together.

 see. told ya I could make you smile.
