Hi, welcome to Dawn Photography!
My name is Natasha. I am a mum of two beautiful crazy kids, Ava & Riley, wife to Adam and we also have two cats and a dog!
Photography has always been my passion. From such a young age I knew what I wanted to do. Growing up, I had a Polaroid camera that I used to absolutely annoy the crap out of my family! Needless to say, I have always loved capturing moments.
After having Ava in 2012, I really started going for it. I photographed weddings for a few years, until I found that after capturing 100's of weddings... they just were not what I wanted my main focus to be.
From there, I began capturing family photos, portrait work and cake smashes! I took a leap and set up my own small studio at home. I put most of my attention to capturing babies and families... Oh, how I did fall in love fast. I decided that was my calling!
It was in 2016, after the birth of Riley, I quit my full-time day job and jumped into professional newborn photography. I dedicated my home studio to newborn sessions. My husband left his job as well, to look after our beautiful children and gave me total support! It was a hard few years, but flash forward to 2019 - now we have a separate, beautiful and private commercial studio in Samford Valley.
In 2020 I hired my first employee, my sister Chantell! Chantell loves to create things as well, she always gets my crazy ideas. Not to mention, she can always seem to get kids to laugh... even if it means playing peek-a-boo or jumping around making a fool of herself!
I LOVE every moment of my day. I have captured upwards of 1,000 babies in my career so far.
I also love to create gorgeous set ups and backdrops, especially with fresh flowers!
Well that’s a little bit about me!
“Wow! I just left our incredible cake smash photography session with the lovely Natasha and Chantell and what can I say!?! Natasha was amazing and took the time to chat and play with our daughter, which made her so happy and relaxed that we all had the best time. I would 100% recommend Dawn Photography to all my friends and family. I can’t wait to receive our lovely photos!! Thank you so much! 🌼”
