The most talented photographer you'll ever use. I watched the shoot and what I saw were 2 little girls playing. What came back looked like 2 little woodland fairies. There were so many beautiful ones to choose from. The eye that Dawn has is truly a gift. If you want a piece of art Dawn is your person!!!! More...

highly recommend Dawn @ gypsy souls for family portraits! never again will we endure the "mall photography studios..." Dawn was prepared and professional-- quickly took beautiful photos, some posed and some candid, before the attention spans of the children were lost!

Dawn photographed our family at an old barn in a beautiful town in early fall of 2016. Our session was laid back and fun and she managed to capture each unique personality in our family of four. She had our pictures ready and available quickly and was competitively priced. More...

Dawn was amazing! She captured the love and joy that my children have for each other and it really comes through in the photos. Everyone we have shared them with really loves them. She made our session comfortable and fun. More...

She saved our Christmas pictures from being the same boring old family photos. We look cool instead of cheesy. Definitely not your run-of-the-mill photo session. I just booked our appointment for this year and I can't wait! More...

Dawn made family photos easy and fun. Even the teenagers couldn't complain. I highly recommend Gypsy Souls. Our pictures are beautiful.

We are not people who have professional photographs done (“why else do we own a camera?” says husband), but have suffered from "one parent/two kids" in all our photos for too long. We were pleasantly surprised by our first ever professional session. Dawn came very prepared with numerous props and ideas to assist with natural vs. forced smiles, and provided a beautiful outdoor setting to set the scene(s). She made us feel very comfortable during our family photo shoot, and even got our recalcitrant 8-year old to participate with smiles (not always an easy task, let me tell you)! We definitely recommend gypsy souls photography with Dawn behind the lens! More...

We have had family photos taken by professionals everywhere from New York City to Hawaii, but Dawn with Gypsy Souls was able to capture moments, moods, and expressions that none of the other photographers were able to to. Her genuine, fun personality lends itself to a truly enjoyable photography experience. The creative ideas and insight she shared truly set our images apart from the rest of those predictable and cliche "cookie cutter" photos. We all cherish the memories artistic and meaningful photography can capture, and we're so glad we chose Gypsy Souls to document ours this year. More...

Dawn captured the true soul of my two boys - not only did our holiday photos turn out beautiful, they actually enjoyed themselves! She is a true artist! Thank you - please contact me for another photo shoot this fall! More...

What a wonderful experience! Dawn was able to capture those unposed and very real moments that make for great pictures!

My experience with Dawn was absolutely incredible. My girlfriend and I were honored to be photographed by her as she is truly an artist. Her vision is exceptional and her methods are pure. I would highly recommend her talents to anyone. We cannot wait to be photographed again in the future. More...

I did portfolio work and jewelry modeling with Gypsy Souls, and she was amazing! She was so kind, professional, and talented. The images are stellar. I actually use one for my Google profile image! Thank you! More...

Dawn was referred to me by a mutual friend in the Sewickley area. She was hired to take headshots of business staff for an updated website. She was very patient with me as scheduling 8 individuals in 2 days was no easy task. Her work is professional and her love for what she does is very evident. Communication was so important since I am located in NC. She never failed to pick up the phone and return my call when I needed to talk. We are looking forward to seeing these corporate shots on the company's new Website launching soon. Dawn is highly recommended and the company's co-founder was very pleased! More...

Dawn is a genius! Do you have one of those kids who likes to make funny faces at the camera or won’t look at the camera at all? Well, my daughter is one of those kids. Dawn had her hands full and I have no idea how she did it (patience, luck, timing) but she captured the most amazing shots of my beautiful girl! We booked a session with Dawn to have photos taken for Kate’s first communion. Our church does not like photos to be taken during the service so Dawn was able to book time for a shoot one afternoon after school. We now have the most beautiful, keep-sake photos of this sacred event. I highly recommend Dawn – she will get creative shots with amazing lighting – and she will capture the essence of your special people and special moments. Nancy Patterson More...

Dawn did a great job of getting my boys to laugh and getting "that shot," right at the perfect moment. Anyone out there raising teen boys? Then you know what I'm saying. They complain and drag their feet about even having their pics taken, let alone willingly agree to smile and seem cooperative. Dawn has the perfect personality to crack through that tough exterior. I love that I got to keep the pics and can go through and use them for Christmas cards or anything we want! Highly recommend. - Clare Westwood More...

I have had the occasion to work with Dawn at Gypsy Souls Photography on two occasions - once for headshots of my daughter and once for some artistic dance photographs. Her work is amazing! Dawn was very patient and able to direct my 8 year old daughter in a way that she could understand and still have fun. I have nothing but praise for Dawn and Gypsy Souls Photography and look forward to our next photography session! More...

Gypsy Souls Photography captured the most precious images of my newborn. The creative artist was professional and patient, and far exceeded our expectations. The photos were ready in a prompt and timely fashion. The images were truly unique and original. I would recommend this artist without hesitation for all your photography needs. More...

This was our 3rd session with Dawn from Gypsy Souls Photography. She was creative and completely understood what I wanted out of our photo sessions. We did a maternity session, newborn session and a family session. Each session came back with at least 50 pictures to choose from. The longest I had to wait to get pictures back was 2 days and they were all edited. It was incredibly fast and exciting to see so many perfect pictures. She gave us all the pictures so we could have as many printed as we would like. I will never use another photographer. We will be booking a fall session. More...

Q&A

Just relax! Posed can be pretty but real life is even prettier. When you are comfortable it shows! Candid photographs are the ones that will take your breath away.

In our consult we will discuss a number of things including time frame, goals, visions and budget.

Doing what I love is a blessing. Making people happy makes me happy. Getting to do what I love for a living can't be put into words.

I am a rare breed of artist and business person. I really do use both sides of my brain! Many years ago I tried my hand at Corporate America, I was successful financially but emotionally bankrupt.

Clients that are looking for the extraordinary are my perfect fit.
