Deborah Donenfeld is a photographer specializing in children, portraits and lifestyle. She has worked for magazines such as Travel & Leisure, Parents, Vogue Bambini, Milk, City and Time Out Kids, as well as for advertising and private clients.

Deborah’s uniquely calm and positive nature translates into a relaxed atmosphere, and a fun and pleasant experience for all involved. Looking to see where her subjects will lead her, she incorporates this reality into her own vision, making for natural and authentic-feeling pictures. She loves the spontaneity and unpredictability of working with children, and both children and parents enjoy her easy-going attitude and obvious love of the work. Deborah has a natural ability to put her subjects, adults and children, at ease.

Deborah lives in New York City with her two children.
