I started my photography journey when I was 13 years old, and a high school photography teacher took interest in some of the work. Photography was an escape from high school and allowed me to express myself and improve myself all at once. I bought my first camera the weekend I started college, and before I knew it, I was photographing for the on-campus fashion magazine and having a gallery show my senior year.
After a year of working as a receptionist, I decided to get my Masters in Photography. I moved from Cincinnati to San Francisco, knowing no one in the city and less about the city itself. I quickly started my own business, Dawn Elizabeth Photo, while pursuing my degree at the Academy of Art University. I graduated in May of 2018 with my MFA in Commercial Photography and now I can say I have been professionally shooting for 10+ years now!
Currently, I am the Senior photographer at Chewy, based in Fort Lauderdale, FL - and there is not a single thing I don't love about my job and the work that I am creating. My style is all about fun and color, and I love working with people (and pets)!
My client list includes several companies, such as Chewy, Airbnb, Original Stitch, Touch of Modern, and New Revolution Media, and photographers including Elena Zhukova, Patrick Stull, and Russie Sanders, as well as collaborating with countless Influencers and Content Producers.
