Dawn Brown 

Atlanta Portrait & Lifestyle Photographer

I am an Atlanta based physician with an absolute love for photography. I sometimes ask myself: am I a doctor trying to be a photographer or a photographer trying to be a doctor? Whatever the answer is, I love healing people and capturing memories that will last a lifetime.

My love for photography started in second grade when I was chosen to demo the "new" Minolta pocket camera. I believe their slogan was: "it's so easy, even a second grader can use it". Since that time, I have dibbled and dabbled with taking pictures, but it was not until the birth of my children that my excitement for photography turned into a passion. My goal was to try to capture images of my children growing up so that I could look back and relive those specific moments in time. Even now I smile, laugh and even cry when I look at these images that seem to stop time. I want everyone to have that feeling and this is why I specialize in portraiture for all stages of life. From newborns to great-grandparents and everything in between, I want to forever preserve your history......Because memories do matter!

"Dawn has a gift for putting people at ease so that you get pictures that look relaxed and genuine. Instead of posing and sitting still, we laughed and moved around as Dawn snapped pictures. We now have a treasured collection of photographs of our family and received numerous compliments for a great Christmas card. I look forward to working with Dawn in the future!"

"The newborn period is such a short and precious time that is usually not cherished appropriately by exhausted mothers. That is why I am so thankful to Dawn Brown Photography for capturing my son's darling newborn moments. I now have a lifetime to cherish them. She had such a motherly touch that I felt completely at ease while my newborn was being photographed. Her patience and understanding of newborn rituals allowed for smooth sailing during the photo shoot. She has various wraps and props available, allowing for many different photo options. I love every one of my photos, she did a fabulous job! Thanks again!"


"Dawn met our family at a lovely location close to home for our family photo shoot. The setting she chose was perfect. She was prompt and enthusiastic. Her warm and patient personality made the shoot easy and carefree. She took lots of photos so we had plenty of options to chose from. They all captured each one of our personalities well. We all enjoyed the experience and would recommend Dawn to anyone, hands down!"
