let me introduce myself…

Donna McCullough

I love creating portraits. Looking for the perfect light in someone’s eyes, finding the purist expression on a child’s face, and combining it with a unique location.
That’s what I can do for you.

I have made my living at portrait photography since I was 19, taking a break to raise my son. I have photographed thousands of children, as well as families, seniors and newborns. I’ve worked for several large portrait corporations, as well as private photography studios. My son is off to college and I’ve rejoined the photography world.

I live in Apex, NC with my husband, my college-bound son, and 2 challenging dogs. We also have a home in Surf City, NC, and we love to spend time at our home on the beach. I can take your portrait there too, if you like.

Give me a call. Shoot me a text or email. Let’s get together and discuss your portrait session. Please share your ideas and l’d be happy to provide you with some of my own.

My goal is to create an image that you are going to want to look at for generations.

Talk to you soon!

Donna provided a great experience during my session, and I was very pleased with the final results.  From beginning to end she was well prepared and extremely professional yet still made me feel comfortable. Donna was incredibly knowledgeable about the location of our shoot, which helped in making the session run smoothly.  Due to her knowledge and familiarity with the location, Donna knew which areas would provide the best backdrops for my session.  Her attention to detail really showed in the photos.  For each backdrop, Donna instructed me on which poses would be best and helped me make sure I had the proper posture and was posed in the best position.  She was also receptive to a suggestion I had for a pose, and was sure to match the suggested pose with a great spot at our shoot location.  I am exceptionally thankful to have had the opportunity to work with Donna, and wouldn’t hesitate to work with her again.

My husband and I have been working with Mrs. Donna since 2016.  She shot our maternity, newborn and family pictures. We also will be using her services for our son’s 6 month photoshoot.  She is a woman that is creative, professional, reliable, friendly and cooperative. All of our pictures came out amazing, professional and flawless. I highly recommend Donna for any work.

Donna was awesome!  She was very professional. Donna has the experience and knowledge of how to capture wonderful moments. She knew just what I wanted and was able to catch the sweet personality of my daughter!  I would highly recommend Donna for any photo shoot!  I can’t wait for our next session!
