     Art has always been a part of my life. Growing up I was and continue to be surrounded by artists in my family. I've always been drawn to artists and their story. I love to see what people create and the process behind it. I knew when I chose a career that it would have to be something creative.

I graduated with a diploma in Graphic Design and spent just over ten years working in advertising, production, prepress, and design in Vancouver BC. Photography was a part of my formal education but not the focus. It wasn't until digital photography became the norm that I rediscovered my love for photography. I traded in my SLR camera for a DSLR camera. I combined my digital editing skills and my understanding of print media to set upon a new career path as a photographer. 

I think most people would say I am a pretty out going person. I enjoy meeting new people and hearing their story. I also enjoy documenting their story. This is just a small part of why I love what I do.

When you contact me to book your session you can be assured that I will be professional and courteous. I want you to have beautiful images that bring a smile to your face. I want you to cherish your images for many years to come. I make every effort to ensure that you have an enjoyable experience from the moment we meet.  I pride myself on taking timeless newborn and family pictures that will last a lifetime.

Dawn McLeod Photography is located in beautiful Ottawa Ontario but would be happy to discuss session locations anywhere in the Ottawa valley and beyond.

I look forward to working with you.
