Welcome, to my little journey through life. I am so grateful you stopped by. I don’t even know where to begin, expect chat about the 4 things in my life that mean the most. I am a mom to three awesome kids and a wife to the most amazing husband. We call Calgary, Ab our home. As you can see from the shot above and below we are blessed to have the mountains in our back yard (so to speak:)) I like to describe myself as someone who is always trying to create things pretty. My love for design started early. even when I was a kid my dad built me a barbie house in the basement. The barbies didn’t interest me, but decorating and designing their space sure did. After I graduated high school I took a year to “find myself” but really I always knew what I wanted to do. So I applied for the Interior Design program in Calgary and got in the first try…. I later learnt that was a pretty big accomplishment on it’s own. I graduated 3 short years later and began working in the design department at a home builder in Calgary. I would still be working there, but it saddens me to say the owner lost his battle with Leukaemia and a few years later the company closed their doors. As we all know having kids changes everything… I wanted to stay home with them and lucky I was fortunate enough to be able to. I started to then pick up design jobs as an independent and the #BossBabe was born ..(lol) I couldn’t really tell you the time line of where the camera entered the picture other then I love taking pictures and I love the connections with the families and wedding couples!!! Then enters Beautycounter… Really what we put on our skin is sooo important. The more I learn the more I realize there is no one protecting us and we need to choose wisely. I am now obsessed with this mission. The fact that I might have a small impact on the beauty industry makes me excited every single day. We truly are going to make a change even if it is one charcoal bar at a time…

Without you, this page really doesn’t mean squat so thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of your support and love. xoxox

~We had the pleasure of working with Dawn, she is extremely talented, and professional . She has a keen eye for design , changing our den into a funky retreat that our daughters love spending time in . Our dining room was elevated from casual to classy with wallpaper and accessories. She “fluffed” up our kitchen and great room using contemporary additions. We are absolutely over the moon happy with the results, Dawn is an amazing designer to work with, she really listened to what we wanted to achieve and she totally impressed us !! I would HIGHLY recommend her services , you will not be disappointed !! Thank you Dawn for creating such amazing spaces for our family to enjoy .. You are one awesome gal !!!!  -Carol Patton

 

~I have seen her photography for a couple years now through a friend of mine. I had just had family pictures done with my regular girl whom I love but having the other side done I didn’t want them to look the same. I jumped out of my comfort zone and went a different way and could not be happier. She scouted locations communicated with me about ideas, props, and poses. They are so different then anything I have on my walls and she captured us being us. The turn around was soooo fast I couldn’t even believe how perfect they were in such a short time. She thought of everything and was so prepared. I am thrilled. She has so much talent and an eye for beauty. If your looking for someone to capture the real u shining through this is it! ~ Amanda 

 

~Dawn’s photography is absolutely stunning! She has taken many photos of my family and every time I get them back I can’t believe how she is able to truly capture the moment. A picture is worth a thousand words, all you need to do is look at her portfolio to see how talented she is. I strongly recommend On a Wire Photography and Design! – Christine
