Masterfully entwining elegance and confidence, Donatella Nicolini's photography captures the essence of an expectant mother with a quiet simplicity that speaks volumes. "My ultimate mission is to empower women through my work," states the Italian photographer, who was born and raised in Milan. "I take great care to make every woman I photograph feel like a professional model. Attention to detail, combined with my unique style, allows me to offer a liberating and transformative experience through photography."
Not only has Donatella's striking yet sensitive style garnered praise from the hundreds of women she has immortalised, but also from the highest echelons of the publishing world, with magazines including Vanity Fair, Elle, Marie Claire and Rolling Stone showcasing her talent on an international scale. However, her crowning achievement came when Forbes Italia named her as one of its 100 successful women of 2023, an extraordinary accolade that punctuates a meteoric rise to global acclaim just five years after transitioning from amateur status to pro.
