Welcome to Michele Dawson PHOTOGRAPHY!

I specialize in family and high school senior portrait photography in Anthem, Scottsdale, Cave Creek, Paradise Valley, and basically the greater Phoenix, Arizona area.

I love red tulips, a strong cup of dark coffee, traveling, and Disneyland. I've been married for 22 years and have 4 kids.

See that photo above? That's me and my family. My family's school, work and life schedules never line up so on the afternoon of Thanksgiving 2019 I begged, pleaded, and bribed them all to step outside. I got my camera settings and composition in order and my mother-in-law snapped the picture. It had been a good few years since we had a family photo of any kind so I'm always grateful for anything we get.

For as long as I can remember, I've frequently had a camera in hand, ready to capture the moment. I got my first little Kodak Instamatic when I was eight. I was hooked.

Fast forward to some college photography courses and a LOT of self-teaching and here I am.

I specialize in high school seniors, dancers, family, and children. I also provide on-site event and Picture Day photography for dance studios, sports teams, and preschools.

I strive to help you look your best and make you feel comfortable and confident in front of the camera. I do everything in my power to capture your authentic spirit, whether you're a high school senior capturing this magical milestone, a dancer with your first pair of pointe shoes, or a family with energetic toddlers.

Don't put it off. Trust me.  My greatest treasures are the portraits hanging on my walls. The innocent toothless grins, the brief instant captured of them all sweetly holding hands, the high school senior on the verge of adulthood. Let me document your most treasured moments.
