Hi, I am Dawn. Redhead. Coffee Addict. Candle Hoarder. Yankee Fan. Prop Junkie. Child Whisperer. Director of Memories. Lover of all things photography.


Ever since I was a child, I've had a passion for capturing the everyday moments and small happenings that make life so special. I was always the one with the camera, snapping away to preserve those fleeting memories. Over time, I realized that these pictures told a story—not just any story, but a unique narrative from my perspective.


Today, there's nothing that brings me greater joy than using this passion to tell the stories of others. I find immense fulfillment in capturing the innocence and happiness of a child, the joy of a couple welcoming a new addition to their family, the love shared between generations, and the excitement of couples embarking on a new journey together. Being part of these precious moments is an honor, and they become my cherished memories as well.


I have a special place in my heart for newborns and cake smash/first birthday sessions. There is something magical about capturing a baby's first days and celebrating their first year of life with all the joy and messiness that comes with a cake smash. These milestones are incredibly precious, and I am dedicated to preserving these moments in a way that reflects their unique beauty.


When I am behind the camera, I feel most like myself. Each session is approached with an open mind, keen attention to detail, and a deep love for my craft. I'm not afraid to act silly to elicit a genuine smile, and I understand the importance of patience, especially when working with shy subjects. My goal is to ensure you have fun and feel comfortable, allowing your true selves to shine through. During our sessions, you will make memories filled with laughter, love, and genuine connection. I strive to capture those candid moments when you are most authentically you, often without you even realizing it.


I truly love what I do, and I believe it shows in my work. To my clients, thank you for allowing me to be part of your treasured moments. To my future clients, I eagerly look forward to creating beautiful memories together.


To every girl or woman who doubts her beauty, and to every man or boy feeling ordinary—stand before my camera, and I'll reveal the beauty within that you have yet to see.


With love,

Dawn
