My family sessions focus on photographing your family with documentary-style portraits and are for growing immediate families and motherhood. Our time together is not formal and posed but instead we capture all the spontaneity and emotions together. And photograph the love and intimate bond of your family! My style is to gently guide you through the entire session while inspiring you to naturally interact with one another. And my goal is to capture all the tiny moments, the spontaneous moments, and everything in between!
“Working with Dawn is instantly comfortable and no matter how awkward you think you are in photos, she puts you at ease and you hardly feel like you’re at a photo shoot. She captured our disinterested dog and our 3.5 year old perfectly, with everyone looking great in so many of the shots.” Samantha K.
