About Dawn Fry

My mission with Dawn Fry Photo is to not only inspire high school seniors to be confident, beautiful, empowered, and positive role models, but to also capture that spirit and promise with beautiful artwork that you can treasure for a lifetime. 

As my own boys grow and mature, more and more I am overcome with a drive to document the moments of our time together. My young teen gets taller every day and HIS VOICE IS CHANGING and omg I can't stand it! Soon I will forget what his little boy voice sounds like. Soon, his hands will be manly and bigger than mine. And soon, I will forget what he looked like before his adult features take hold. I know YOU, Mom, feel the same. Let me help you forever capture this special year. Let me help you walk through this emotional time and grab those memories before they are gone. I can give you something to hold on to forever. 

I have been a professional photographer for over 15 years and have extensive experience both in front of and behind the camera. My experience as a model and a model coach helps me to create images for high school seniors that are both beautiful and fun, and help to make my clients look their very best!

But, you can probably tell that just by looking in the galleries. ;) If you really want to know about me, here are some nuggets of info for you.

  • I love God. 
  • I love gardening and cooking, coffee, and chocolate!  Though not necessarily in that order. I also have an unhealthy love for all things BACON. And I could eat sushi every day. Especially if it had bacon in it...
  • I have 2 little boys and a wonderful husband.  And we have far too many pets. Included in those pets may or may not be a couple of chickens. But you didn't hear that from me.
  • I am 6' tall. Because of this, I am often asked to reach for things on high grocery shelves. 
  • I love to tell stories that make people laugh. 
  • I love to cook for people. If you are good friends with me (or even if you just ask) I will make homemade cinnamon rolls for you every year at Christmas. I usually end up making about 25-30 pans a year during the holidays. 
  • I love capturing moments on my camera. Though with my family I usually just use my phone. Because, well, it's always in my back pocket. And the Canon weighs a ton. 
  • In my pre-photography life, choir and singing filled my days as I earned a bachelor’s degree in Vocal Music Education.  
  • Most days, you will find me at my computer working on images or feeding my addiction to Facebook.  
  • I wear blue jeans every day.
  • Oh yes, and sometimes I change my hair color…I am naturally blond, but I have been a redhead and a brunette and I currently have a thing for BLUE.
  • If you read through all of that, I love you. :)

  • My husband is a professional artist and photographer as well. If you would like to see some of his work, please check out his website here, C. L. Fry Photo.

    Thank you so much for considering Dawn Fry Photo.  I look forward to helping you preserve your memories.
