My journey as a photographer began the year my wife and I were married. With our honeymoon destination set on the Grand Canyon, I purchased my first "grown up" camera. My love of photography was born and I was on my way to becoming a portrait photographer. I just didn't know that at the time.
My style of photography has developed over the years to capture the personality and natural expressions of the people in front of my camera. The thing I don't really talk about is my aversion to having my own photo taken. Because of this, I understand what it feels like to be uncomfortable when someone points a camera at you. Whether you dislike having your photo taken or you feel like you could try out to be on America's Next Top Model, we will work together to create photos that you will LOVE!
Giving back to the community is very important to me. From partnering with a local business to raise over $12,000 for the APA (Click here) to volunteering my time to photograph high school seniors in the St. Louis orphan system or photographing events for St. Louis Children's Hospital. I feel that God has given me so much, the least I can do is give back to others.
I specialize in senior & family portraits with a spattering of pet and business portraits. If you want a portrait taken that you will love for the rest of your life I would be happy to talk with you about your photography needs. ~ Don Hawkins
