Hi, I am Dawn Gerrity, and I am a photographer.  I use natural light and shoot on location and specialize in candid moments. I want to leave you with images that remind you that your life is more beautiful than you think.

Random Facts About Me

I am a friendly introvert. I really want to be with people and like to be with people, but it's can be a challenge for me so I sometimes come across as shy.

I love live plants in my house. Unfortunately, I often forget to water them (or I water them too much) and the only ones that stay alive are the cacti.

I have a lab mix (3 year old) puppy that weighs 85 lbs (ok, so he's 90 lbs. We are working on shedding those extra 5 lbs.--and when I say "we" I mean everyone else except me because I keep filling his bones with peanut butter. If he looked at you with those big eyes you would too!!). Yes, that is one big goofball who loves to "talk", play, and snuggle.

I have many nicknames for my pets. I often refer to our cat Reese as The Purrinator, the little one, and ninja kitty (because he shows up and disappears out of nowhere) and our dog Jax as Jaxxyboy, Wiggie (because he wiggles when happy), and Babykins.

I like to change the furniture around in my house, often. I've even changed what the rooms are. My bedroom has been in 3 different rooms in my tiny little cape. My poor husband never knows what he is coming home to.

When I walk through stores, I often touch things, especially if they look soft. I just love to touch soft material.

I am a mom of a teenage girl and a twenty-something young man and a step-mom of 2 teenage boys. It's always "interesting" at our house.

I am a person who tends to see the good. Even after seeing the bad, I then try to see the good. Ok, I know, I know--I'm a sucker!
