I love taking pictures of everything and everyone!  It's really that simple.  

I've shared that I'm a believer in relationships.  My  husband  and I have been married for over 25 years.   We have two kids, a high spirited rescue dog and we love living in the desert. 

I didn't start out wanting to be a photographer but I've been one through all stages of my life.  It fits me and I hope that we are a fit too.

Hi Y'all...IT's NICE To MEET YOU!

- Donna

 "Donna Thompson‘s photography exceeded my expectations. Our family has had several photo sessions throughout the years but this was my favorite. She helped with choosing a location, knowing the best time of day to get the best lighting and made my family feel very comfortable. She actually took the time to suggest poses and positioned us to get the best pictures possible! Turnaround was quick and we will definitely use her again in the future…"

How do you feel about laughter? My kids will tell you that I laugh too loud and talk too much, and...they are probably right.   I see that as something you and I have in common though.  You want to remember all of the joy and laughter that you felt on your wedding day and so do I.

This is my family.  I love this photo of us and I have this image printed and  hanging up right now!  I love to print images of my family and show them off.  I have  the  cutest kids ever...don't  you agree?  Pictures are meant to be printed, hung up, displayed in an album and loved over and over again.

Ellie is our fur baby from Follow Your  Heart Animal Rescue in Mesa, Arizona.  She can jump onto a game table from the sitting position and she's super fast!  We thought she was a Labrador mix but the DNA test says otherwise.  She's a combination of Miniature Pincer, Terrier, and small parts of Great Dane and St. Bernard.  She looks like a mini lab to me.

Why my affection

Relationships and traditions are meaningful to me with Disney playing an integral part in my life.   I'm a native Texan, but as a kid we lived in Orlando for a few years. I have family that worked at Walt Disney World, we spent many July Fourth Celebrations at the Magic Kingdom, and my mom made extraordinary cakes for Disney executives from time to time. I was recruited to work for Disney and my family's response was "you'll be perfect for Disney!"  I was a Disney Cast Member for 8 years and loved it. 

for Disney?

I worked for the Consumer Products Division, managed stores and became a visual merchandiser. During my tenure, I was honored with The Spirit Award. This was a huge accomplishment and one that I'm super proud of. I have many emotions and traditions that I treasure from my time with Disney. The relationships I formed while there are still intact today and that is my wish for us.  Now,  I share my love of traditions, details and creativity through my work as your photographer and I can still enjoy my Disney side!
