Hi there! I'm dawn and I have the honor of 

your life story while 


my own.

Most days you can find me with my laptop at my favorite coffee shop enjoying a chai latte. Just kidding. Actually, you will probably find me at work with my third cup of coffee in my hand because I've been up since 4 AM. You see, this little business of mine was a dream that became a reality not too long ago. Since then, I have been in a season of hustle to bring it to life, all while learning how to balance it with my day job and life as a newlywed. Every single day is one step closer to transitioning into a full-time Girl Boss, and it is an adventure to say the least. So grab your favorite cup of coffee and enjoy this ride with me.

i'm mostly known for my unhealthy obsession with my planner, apple products, and my pup dolly. I love bright colors, my sweet husband andrew, and crossfit (even though I complain about it the entire workout).

Unlike most photographers, my love for photography came from the technical side of things. I have worked in IT for the past 8 years, and I'm fascinated that manipulating something within a machine results in a different type of photo. As I started shooting more, I quickly realized the impact that my work can have on a person. I have the ability to freeze a moment in time, a moment that will be cherished for the rest of their lives and even after we are long gone. With every shutter click is another moment preserved in a family's legacy. How amazing is that?!

Just Read the Signs.

all my life, my grandpa has told me that if I let the good lord guide me, he would take me on some pretty amazing adventures. 

dawn elizabeth studios is one of those adventures.

Want to work with me?
