About Me

         Hi, I'm Donna Pradas, the creator of LaurelEye Imagery.  I live in Laurel, on the North Fork of Long Island.  My passion is photography, and creating beautiful, joyful memories for you and your family is my obsession.

         You're here because you're looking for a photographer to tell your story; you're getting engaged, you're having a baby, your little miracle has arrived, you want to share your baby's milestones through life, to graduation and beyond. ..... the precious moments are many.       

              Your session with me will be filled with laughter, smiles, and an ease in front of the camera that allows the true story to be revealed.  In no time you will find your shoulders relaxed and your smile spontaneous, with no need to pretend for the camera. 

            It brings me tremendous joy to see a grown woman twirling like a princess as I capture  her inner goddess, or to catch that sparkle in the toddler's eyes as we sing a favorite song and break out in dance.   It is easy to find the joy and bring on the smiles if the atmosphere is playful and organic. 

             I have a special portfolio page called  "Outtakes", which shows the behind-the-scenes fun of a session with me, where comments like the one depicted below describe:

                    "Your work is amazing and we're so glad to be a part of it! 

                      Kenny and I are always happy and laughing.  It says a lot

                       about you as a photographer that you have a knack

                       for making  people feel super comfortable.  Not

                       all photographers can do that.  It felt like we were

                       hanging out with friends!"     

          I invite you to join my ever growing family of new "friends" and allow me to memorialize your story, and together we will create beautiful images that you and your loved ones will cherish forever.
