KELLY DONETH

PHOTOGRAPHY

I’m Kelly Doneth, owner/photographer 

HOW I STARTED

I’m a Michigan girl, born and raised and I adore the beautiful backdrop of our state! I have lived in Plymouth with my family for 20 years. Outside of my lovely hometown, Chicago is my second love! It’s so full of life, diversity, and the dining and shopping are fantastic! 

After having kids of my own, I began taking photos of them just like everyone else. After seeing my own personal photos, friends began asking me to take pictures of THEIR children…and so it began! I ended up attending a photography workshop in Chicago where I became inspired. I developed a passion for artistic photography and decided to pursue it as a full-time career although, I currently serve as president of the school board at my daughter’s elementary school to keep my foot in the door of education.

AS A PHOTOGRAPHER

NATURAL, BRIGHT, & MODERN

CONNECTING WITH YOU

My boutique-style photography business has been allowing me to capture significant life moments for my clients for nearly a decade. When asked to describe my photography style, my clients describe it as natural, bright, and airy-I am drawn to vibrant color and aim for a modern look with a candid feel.

My goal is connecting with my clients. I want to develop a sense of their own personal style and preferences, while establishing trust in my process for understanding their vision. I want to help you create a look that you LOVE because inner confidence will always showcase your outer beauty.

I was uncertain about what to expect but Kelly made my entire experience so fun, easy, and memorable. I've shot with her 3 times and it amazes me how each shoot is so fresh and unique. I would highly recommend Kelly to anyone who wants an awesome senior shoot experience!"

"Kelly was amazing to work with!"

Kelly made the entire process so easy and fun, and the pictures turned out great. She had a ton of ideas for pictures and poses that would look good, and was really clear about what she wanted me to do.

Kelly made me feel so beautiful and I loved the way the pictures turned out! I wouldn't have changed a thing!"

- SOPHIA | CLASS OF 2018

"I had the best time with Kelly!"

My day started with hair and makeup by Bridget and outfit selections and accessories ... then on to our location. The day could not have been more perfect! We had such a hard time choosing from the pictures so we bought the Digital Collection package so we have ALL of the pictures! I'd recommend Kelly Doneth Photography to anyone looking for a great experience!" 

- CHLOE | CLASS OF 2018

"My senior session with Kelly was absolutely amazing! "

 I had so much fun picking out clothes, talking to Kelly about my styles, and prepping for the morning of the shoot. Detroit was a super fun location to shoot at and the pictures turned out amazing! I would recommend Kelly to anyone because I felt so comfortable and it was enjoyable from the beginning to end!"  

- CATHERINE | CLASS OF 2018

"The shoot was a cool experience and is something that I will always remember!"

Going into it I really did not think Detroit was a cool place but once Kelly took me there it was truly remarkable. She really helped me break out of my shell and took some pictures that I would not normally take that I ended up liking. Honestly, hands down the best experience a guy could have taking pictures!"  

- WILL | CLASS OF 2018

"My experience with Kelly was honestly really fun!"

Kelly guided me through everything so I didn't have to think about what to do. She knew really cool spots in Detroit. Kelly definitely brought out the best side of me in all my pictures
