I'm Dawn Marie
I am a local photographer in Cape May County who specializes in YOU! My #1 goal is to build relationships with my families so I can create images that match their vision.
I have photographed hundreds of families all over Cape May County including maternity, newborn, baby milestones, professional headshots and senior portraits.
I know how exciting and nerve-racking it is to have photos done, so I make sure you receive your digital photos back within 2 weeks so you can enjoy them right away!
Dawn is incredibly talented and loves what she does! She was so helpful in choosing the perfect location and time to have a beautiful scene. She takes time to get to know you through a questionnaire and uses your responses to help create perfect pictures. She is an expert in her field! WISH I CAN GIVE MORE THAN 5 STARS!!!!
I got headshots done for my job recently with Dawn. As soon as I walked in, she was so comforting and welcoming! She made the process extremely painless and actually fun considering how uncomfortable I am in front of the camera. I couldn’t even believe how good the pictures turned out!!! Dawn is so friendly, professional, and kind. I would recommend her to absolutely anyone.
Why hire a professional?
As a parent I know the struggles in managing a family, juggling a job and trying to take pleasure in each day. When you get that one quick minute to reflect, you realize how amazing your life is but also notice how fast time goes.
Hiring a professional photographer who understands the importance of time, will help create photos that won't just sit on your phone, but photos that will etch time deep in your soul. Hiring a photograph who knows lighting, posing and enjoys working with all ages, will create an enjoyable and easy session that even dad will appreciate.
Dawn has the patience of a saint, she is so sweet and easy to talk with! i couldn’t of asked for a better photographer! Her communication is fluid, and transparent. She always goes the extra mile to make sure it’s everything you can dream of! I can’t wait to work with her again in the future!
Dawn is absolutely fantastic to work with! She captured beautiful maternity picture, adorable newborn pictures, and perfect home family pictures!
She kept my very active 2 year old engaged and captured perfect shots of our family’s personality!!
We recently took Easter photos in her new studio! Her space is very clean, bright and roomy for family pictures!
Dawn is professional, full of life and personality, and great with the kiddos!
We will definitely be using her for all our photographer needs!

Best way to choose the right location is to think of the decore in your house. If you have a beachy style, the beach would be perfect. If you have more of a rusty look, you might want to consider a session in the woods or park. Of course the most important reason for choosing the right location is picking somewhere that is special to you and/or your family.
Posing is the last thing you should be worried about. As a professional photographer, I am trained and experienced in posing, so everything will be guided (even the candid shots). You job is to relax and have fun!
What should we wear for the photo session?
Match your surroundings! Whereever your session is, think about the colors you are going to see there and try to match the colors. Solid colors tend to photograph great. Also try to add in different colors throughout the family, instead of everyone matching.
What is the cancellation policy?
How do you plan on keeping my children engaged?
Working with children is one of my favorite things about being a photographer. Before our session, we will have a phone conference where I learn all about your family. So when I see your family the day of the session, I will be well prepared with what interests them and the best way I can photograph their personalites. (I'm more worried about how dad will be) ;p
How do I choose the right location?
What if we are bad at posing?
When you book a session you pay a non-refunable deposit. After that the the remaining balance are broken into 2 payments. We do all we can to reschedule before cancelling, but if a cancellation has to happen because of weather or photographer issues, you will recieve both payments back or a credit for a future session. If the cancellation is a client issue, a credit will be issued.
