With photography, there's nothing I'm more passionate about than documenting a family. The big milestones like births, those first steps, that first lost tooth, the baseball games and those long gymnastic meets, graduations, weddings...these are all SO important to document in a beautiful way. However, I can't overlook the mundane--the simple moments that we take for granted. These often become the most precious memories...a baby's toothy smile, a toddler eating his favorite ice cream flavor, trips to the park, long Saturdays with best friends, an afternoon stroll with your spouse... I don't want to leave any of it to my memory alone.
I take great joy in photographing a family year after year and seeing their kids grow before my lens. Having them comfortable with me, knowing that I'm going to make the process fun and relaxing is key to getting genuine smiles and authentic family interactions.
Whether you choose me or someone else to photograph your family, I hope that you make documenting your family every year a priority. I'm certain it's a decision you'll never regret.
"In November, 2019 we had our annual family portraits taken by Dawn. I saw her work from a friend and thought it was special. Dawn was prompt, quick, professional and calm. We are a family of 6, 4 teenagers and a big dog! Our session was so smooth and positive and the end results were breathtaking. I will be calling Dawn every year and will always refer to my friends and family!"
The Beyers Family
"Dawn has taken our family photos and helped design our holiday cards every year for the past 10 years. She's really good at getting our three kids to relax and always gets beautiful candid shots that show each of their personalities. Our fall photo shoots have become one of our favorite family traditions and treasured keepsakes. We highly recommend Dawn!"
The Everett Family
"Dawn is the most talented photographer we have ever had the pleasure of working with. She has an amazing gift for capturing smiles and expressions at just the right time to bring the emotions of a captured moment to life. We have 4 kids and to get each one to pose at the same time is a miracle...Dawn did it! She captured so many good shots that we ended up with an entire wall of canvases from our session. This wall is the focal point in our family room and these pictures warm my heart every day I see them. Thank you, Dawn, for sharing your unmatched gift of photography with us! "
The Martin Family
"Dawn is a rare talent. She captures incredible moments, but puts everyone at ease while doing it. Her pictures tell the story of the day's events in a captivating and beautiful way."
The Randall Family
"The first word that comes to mind is integrity. There are a lot of photographers out there, but not all have integrity. This is the basis of who Dawn is and how she treats her clients. Dawn has a passion and ability to capture the heart of her clients through her artful photography. Once you see your photos, you'll be delighted at the moments and expressions that will forever tell your story!"
