Photographer Baton Rouge

I’m not just good with a camera, I’m great with people, and that makes all the difference. I’m Donna, a wife and mother of two rambunctious boys that understands the desire to have amazing family photos, as well as the anxiety that comes with herding unwilling family members, to be on time and still clean, to a photoshoot, with hopes that at least ONE of the photos will be framable. I understand the fear of having a strong-willed child that might not cooperate. THIS is what sets me apart in the photography industry.

As a young photographer with over a decade of experience, I am capable of both, taking stunning photos, and having the patience required to accomplish those incredible, framable moments. I am down to earth and work with a natural and candid approach. I’m known for capturing genuine smiles in what others consider challenging circumstances even if it requires me to get a bit silly. If you’ve been looking for a stress free experience with a photographer who “gets it” – look no further. If you’ve worried about explaining the complication of a disability, or are looking for someone who has experience working with those on the spectrum, – Evermore Stories is right for you! I’m confident I can capture gorgeous authentic photos of your family and deliver a gallery you’ll be proud to share!

“Absolutely amazing photography by a beautiful person inside and out!! Her patience is remarkable and her passion for photography is evident in all of her work! She will not disappoint.” ~Mrs. Ashley Guidry

Two ten photography

Two:10 Photography was born out of my desire to capture people in their true form, as Christ describes us in Ephesians 2:10 “That you are His masterpiece” and created perfect in the eyes of Christ. Family photography is my absolute favorite because as a special needs momma, I know firsthand how quickly the years go by. And, through photography, I want to help bless others by freezing special moments, seasons, and memories that they can cherish forever.
