Hello and welcome! My name is Dawn Garratt, and thank you for stopping in. I am so glad you have come to visit my about page. I am what some may deem a social butterfly, and a talker. I am a born people person. Helping people is my passion. Getting to know another person, where they come from, where they are heading too, their passions, the ups and downs they have experienced, help me connect with life. I also like the silence, as hard as it is to believe to those close to me. But the world above me fascinates me by leaps and bounds. Sunsets, sunrises, the night sky, and brightest afternoon. Photography helps me capture all the words I love to say into one meaningful image to be seen well after it has passed. It also captures what my world looks like when words just can not express the aw. It is not just about capturing memories, but capturing the sensorial experience of that particular moment in time.
I am a stay at home mom that someday would love to earn some extra money to buy lenses, take classes, and grow this craft. Maybe someday I can even take a vacation! I find photography to be more of a personal growth – I akin it to when one grows spiritually. The benefit is rather for me, but if I can share it with others, I will. For now my pictures are from my world: family, pets, friends, sunsets, flowers, and anything else I can learn from.
At the moment I’m not for hire, but as I grow in my craft and build my portfolio, I plan on making the transition from hobbyist to pro.
Please contact me if you have any questions about my work.
