Because in the end, that is what brings my joy. When you book a mentorship with me, know that you get all of me. I will tell you everything from the good, the bad, the highs, the lows...everything. And if I don't have an answer, you better damn believe I will find it. I want to be your google. I want you to trust in me and ask me ALL THE THINGS.
I never want my fellow photographers to feel that lost feeling, the feeling of wanting to give up or questioning if you are in the right place. This is where my love for teaching came about. I love being able to mentor others, and give my tools and knowledge to you. Help you through struggles and answer every single question you might have. I love being able to use my trials and tribulations and turn them into successes. I never had the resources or tools when I got started, and in return I will always choose community over competition. I am an open book, I love seeing others succeed and thrive. Going back to my love language, acts of service....I promise to do anything and everything for you.
The Online Mentorship is best for anyone who’s out of state! We have 2 hours to go over everything + anything you want help with! I will send you a questionnaire ahead of time so we can really dive into the important pieces of your business + questions, and really stay on task. We can go over anything really. We can do Skype, Facetime or google hangouts!
This is the best for someone who is already in Oregon, or willing to come here and learn. This is basically a one-on-one workshop!! We will meet up at a cafe, and for a few hours go over ALL your questions you have! This is geared all around YOU + what YOU want! Then we will go somewhere epic, and photograph a rad shoot! You have the option of the model being a portrait session, lifestyle couples session or bridal couples session.
I had the great pleasure of working with Dawn to capture my husband and I's one year of marriage photos. When I first met Dawn, she was warm, kind, and energetic. The session with her was full of laughter, dancing, and it was utterly natural working with Dawn. It felt like I was talking to an old friend. When we received our photo gallery, I was blown away by her work. She is talented at capturing authentic photos that truly showcase a couple's love. My husband was impressed with her skills too. I am thankful that we were able to work with her, and I would do it again in a heartbeat. I highly recommend Dawn!
It’s really difficult to put into words what it’s like to have your photo taken my Dawn. It’s so much more than just receiving beautiful photos. Getting your photo taken can awkward; Dawn knows that so she goes above and beyond to make you feel comfortable. Minutes into our shoot the nerves we had were completely gone, which meant the photos she captured were natural and tender...to this day the photos she captured are our favorite ones we’ve ever had done. Our only wish is that we could go back in time and have her shoot our wedding. Mark my words, Dawn is the best it gets. Don’t wait, book her!
Dawn is not only an incredibly talented photographer but an amazing person. I was not confident in my body for my maternity shoot but knew I would enjoy the photos after. Dawn helped me feel comfortable and confident in myself, which is evident in the photos. One thing I admire about Dawn is her sense of wonder and adventure. The photo shoots become more than just taking pictures, but an experience in itself. Our family is so happy with the moments captured and look forward to reflecting back in the years to come. I cannot thank and recommend Dawn enough.
I cried actual tears. Not the fake instagram kind of tears where people say "oh my gosh I’m crying” and they’re really not, but real life drops of salty water streamed down my face as my husband and I scrolled through our photos. Dawn captured us in a way no one else ever has before. She let us be us. She let my husband BE my husband, weird and goofy and awkward at times. He feels more comfortable in front of Dawn’s camera than anyone else's. That’s because she doesn’t show up as a photographer, she comes as a friend! She's there to hang out and snap the moments that are real, raw, unposed and genuine.
