meet donna

As far back as I can remember, I have had a camera in my hand... and taking pictures has been a total joy in my life. The photos of my family and travels are one of my most prized possessions, and they tell my story better than I could have with words. That's why I love what I get to do every day... I get the opportunity to help my clients preserve their memories and tell their stories.

I am happy to offer my clients a no-fuss, fun and personalized experience, and images they will truly cherish as they share and display their photos. Let's schedule a call or grab coffee and talk about how we can create beautiful images for you and your family.

Donna rocked the photography for my daughter Bailey's wedding.

Donna was on time, stayed within the allotted time schedule, took action shots and had crisp, clear photographs. We loved working with Donna so much that I hired her again for my son Hayden's senior pictures. Highly recommend Donna, and constantly recommend her to others. Donna also is great with animals. She has captured some darling pictures of my Goldendoodle pups. If you need photography CALL DONNA!! She has a special, creative eye that will capture the best images possible.

Working with Donna is always SO easy!

She is sweet, kind, extremely talented and professional and she delivers such a beautiful product each and every time. I would highly recommend her for any occasion you may be needing photos for! I love how her photos are not overly edited or moody, instead she offers a very natural, light and bright feel that truly captures every emotion. Thank you so much for such wonderful photos of our amazing clients, I cannot wait until we’re working together again!
-Lindsay Culkin, Owner of Fairytale Floral

Donna is our family photographer.

She knows how to capture our families expressions just at the right time. Donna is also my business branding consultant. Headshots, pet photos and family celebrations are Donna’s sweet spots. I know she will also become your family photographer for life!
-Brigitte Ades

Donna is a gem in the industry and I love everything she does!

I would never, ever use anyone but Donna to take our family pictures or our professional photos. Donna spends time getting to know you, your kids (and animals), the dynamics of the family and what makes the spark show up in the photo! She learns when you smile best or when you look most comfortable. She will talk to you the entire time so you don't even know you are taking pictures. Donna is never in a rush and knows the best time of day to capture the light. She works with you to come up with a plan that results in the images you had envisioned.
-Beth Goddard

Donna is the absolute best!

She has been photographing my family since I was pregnant with our first and we will not go anywhere else! Many people tell me they dread pictures, but not mine, and it is all because of Donna. Taking pictures with her is fun and relaxing…it’s like spending the day with a great friend. The pictures she takes are phenomenal! Even when we have cranky kiddos, she somehow works her magic and gives us priceless memories. I seriously could write nice things about Donna all day. She goes out of her way to make you feel like family, makes sure she gives you what you want and then some, and has given us pictures in time of the things that matter most…family. I cannot recommend Donna enough and say a million “thank you’s” for all she’s done and will continue to do. Now I need to go find some more wall space to display our photos!

Donna Sweetin is amazing...

I did not hire her only for her photographic talent but also for her easy-going personality and passion for her craft. Donna is more than just a photographer, she really spends the time you need for her to understand what you want her to capture. Donna has a multifaceted talent and understanding of the art of photography. She does photoshoots for both my professional and personal life and everything is done to perfection and the utmost professionalism. I hired her and continue to hire her because I don’t just want a picture. I seek a feeling that when someone looks at the photo they feel it, they don’t just see it. There is a new thought floating around that anyone can take a picture these days. That simple is not true. If you have the chance to work with Donna, you should take it.
-Mel Miles, Publisher Castle Rock Lifestyle

I highly recommend Donna for corporate and personal events. She is THE best!

We hired Donna for a critical corporate event, and she delivered, exceeding our expectations by capturing candid moments, group shots, speeches, and professional profile photos all in one morning. Even though we had so much going on, Donna put my mind at ease the moment I met her. She knows how to handle crowds, individual VIPs, and get the best shots. She's responsive, engaging and creative, and I was able to get a fabulous photo in the press immediately. I highly recommend Donna for corporate and personal events. She is THE best!
-Lori Dille, Marketing Strategist Barber-Nichols, Inc.

Donna is amazing to work with!

She has a great sense of humor, which makes the whole process so much easier. Donna is professional, punctual and really cares about what she is creating for you. My pictures were amazing...she captured me and my personality effortlessly. Donna came recommended to me by a friend, and I understand why. I will use her again in the future for sure!
-Christine Plentyhoops

The Pictures are Beautiful!

Donna gave us such a special treat at a very difficult time. Our little puppy  – Charlee – had been in the hospital and we weren’t sure how much longer she would be with us. I wanted “family pictures” to remember her by and Donna gave us that!! The pictures are beautiful and I could not have asked for a happier day with our girl. Donna captured our family, Charlee’s personality and gave us memories we will have forever!
-Beth A.

Like many people, I dread getting my picture taken. But Donna made the entire process, easy, simple and fun! And the pictures where awesome! So if you are looking to have your picture taken, I highly recommend Donna!

Cannot Wait For Our Next Family Session

Donna was absolutely amazing to work with, and the pictures turned out amazing! She gave us recommendations of locations for our pictures and we ultimately chose our hometown of Castle Rock. She made sure to get great shots of our family all together, kids together and my husband and myself! I would definitely recommend Donna Sweetin Photography and cannot wait for our next family session.
-Michelle O'Neill

She was AMAZING!

We hired Donna to photograph my parents 50th Anniversary party. She was AMAZING. So easy to work with. She responds to emails quickly, went to scope out the venue the week before the party, showed up early, and captured everything we wanted and more! The pictures turned out beautifully! My parents are beyond thankful for having these pictures to cherish forever...and so am I!!"
