I’m Gayle Dawn, born and raised in Southern California. I’ve been married for a really long time and have three wonderful, pretty much grown up kids. Growing up, I’d always had an interest in photography, but it wasn’t until my early 40’s that I really began to learn the art of photography. It quickly became a passion for me, and within a few years, I found myself practicing photography full-time. I’m very blessed to spend my days working at something I truly enjoy.
I really love capturing the relationships between people. If you need the picture that grandma wants (you know…the one where everyone is smiling perfectly at the camera), I’ll take that one first just to get it out of the way. After that, all bets are off. You’re going to play, be silly, tell fart jokes, tickle each other, and just generally have a lot of fun. Why? Because I want to see who you really are, and capture your real smiles and real laughter! When you start having fun, it gets real, it gets crazy, and it gets joyful. And when there’s real joy, your pictures will be absolutely stunning.
