“You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.”

This stunning red haired beauty is Dawn. She is a math teacher to 4th and 5th graders and she is the mother to two children, a 15 year old son and a 10 year old daughter. They also have a crazy black kitty named Charlotte and 5 month old puppy named Harley (Aweee!) Dawn loves to spend time watching her kids play sports and she also loves scrapbooking in her spare time. Her favorite thing to do to relax is to spend the day at the beach and crack open a romance novel or mystery.

Dawn also participated in our 30 women over 30 portrait series. Although she had never considered something like this before, she saw some other sessions posted and the idea intrigued her. When asked about her insecurities she explained that when she was younger she hated her hair but now she has grown up and has learned to love all parts of herself. She decided to get her portraits done as a gift to her boyfriend of 3 years who she has known since kindergarten!

In a message that rings true for all women, Dawn said her favorite quote is: “You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.”
