M. Dawson Photography bio picture


Hello,the M stands for Misti. I am a photographer, wife and mother of four. Not always in that order. I love to have fun. My photo sessions are all on location with available natural light. My style is offbeat, fun and real. Thank you for stopping by the blog.

Saying Goodbye to Winter…


I will not miss the cold and the snow during the warmer months that are upon us.

Foggy Fall Morning..


Meet Jake…

I had so much fun with him. He was up to try anything and he was a natural in front of the camera.It was hard to narrow down what to share here.

We talked about sports, art, photography and his little brother.

For just moving here a few months prior he knew a lot about this city. Things I had no idea about, not that I’ve lived here much longer than a few months. He also opened my eyes to a beautiful location.

Thank you Jake, you inspired me and now I want to get out and shoot more.

Miss Marley



She’s beautiful, so glad I had the chance to photograph her once again.

Jumping for Joy…

I am here 9-13 copy

I have decided to get my ducks in order and open business again. Designing a card is more like a trip through hell for me but I did it. Okay, I almost did it, I ordered the first batch with the wrong number, who does that? Second card is about done, just a little tweaking to ease my picky mind.
If you’re interested in a holiday session, I am offering a special. Check out my website HERE clicking on the investment link. Also be sure to like my Facebook page HERE to stay up to date with specials and sneak peeks.



It’s that time of year…

This year it’s a little different for me. My little girl is a senior now. Makes me stop and wonder where the time went. I look back on her photos and it seems like yesterday she was just a toddler holding my hand to cross the street.

Is this on?


Meet the A family! Aren’t they beautiful?
