Named by as one of the best newborn photographers in Aurora Colorado!

Based in Aurora, Colorado, photographer Donna Young specializes in newborn portraits. Sessions take place in Donna's studio to make full use of her professional-grade lighting, large selection of backdrops, props, wraps, headbands, and other items that are essential for a professional newborn shoot as well as a comfortable sitting area where parents can relax. Siblings and parents can also be included in photos, and Donna offers multi-session packages for maternity, newborn, and first-year milestone portraits. Pre-session consultations ensure families receive customized, unique sessions to capture fleeting moments of their little ones. Clients appreciate Donna's easygoing manner and the professional results she achieves. She also captures engagement, families, children, and high school seniors, as well as small events like birthdays and weddings in the Denver metropolitan area and beyond.

If you're looking for a photographer who is knowledgeable and yet ALWAYS learning the craft... Donna is it. She is flexible and understanding, passionate and creative. This was the last time my sisters and our families were going to be able to get together and take family photos before life geographically separates us. This was more than I had hoped for and I can't wait to hang them in my home! She is worth it!

So happy we went ahead and decided to do first birthday smash cake pictures with Donna!!!  She did an amazing job!!  We had originally planned to do just the before, during, and after cake pictures, but we changed it last minute after I grabbed my Grandmothers quilt and my Mother's pearls.  I appreciate her flexibility, and because of that we have some really precious pictures that at least four generations will cherish forever. Her house was warm and inviting, organized, and Donna was fast, patient, and professional.  She really knows her stuff.  I also highly recommend getting the bathtub pics after the cake.  Our little lady had her fill of cake, a nice bath complete with rubber duckies, and was clean and asleep on our way home.  Couldn't have asked for a better experience.  Of course it doesn't hurt that we have a beautiful baby :)

Donna is possibly the most creative photographer I have ever worked with. She has captured my pregnancy, newborn period, and whole family flawlessly. She pushed me, creatively, and was able to take beautiful pictures every time. Thank you for having a true passion for what you do!

Than you so much for doing the holiday shoot of Jesenia and on short notice!! I really appreciate the effort you put into all the props and the patience you had with her "sassiness". Both Brandon and I really love the pictures and found it difficult to pick which were our favorite! We couldn't be happier with the way they turned out and I will definitely be coming back for more! Thank you so much

I couldn't be happier with the engagement photos you took earlier this year. I loved your ideas for locations and poses. We had never been photographed professionally before, but you were professional and fun to work with, and made the entire experience very easy. We got so many great photos we couldn't decide which to use for our save the date! We got endless compliments on it! We also ended up making a photo book with all the shots and had one made into a large size canvas - it looks great. You're photos are a great value for the price. We will definitely be contacting you for future photos and will be recommending you to friends! Thanks Again!

Thank you for the amazing session! We had so much fun and we love how the pictures turned out. I didn't think my daughter could look any cuter but somehow you made it happen. Many thanks.
