Author, Photographer, Encourager

Meet Dawn

Welcome to my little corner of the internet! My home sweet home online has been lovingly decorated with family, faith, and Photoshop since 2006. I’m an Atlanta-based writer, photographer, wife, homeschooling mom, small business owner, and regular contributor for (in)courage.

I’m hooked on essential oils, Earl Grey, and the Beatles. Movie date nights are my love language, I prefer the mountains to the beach and tea over coffee, and I never pass up a chance for ice cream. I help people live healthier lives and learn more about how their bodies work through my essential oils business.

Our family participates in a Classical Conversations program one day a week where my class of 10th graders and I study Western Cultural History. We have been a homeschooling family since 1993. Three of our eight children still live at home, three of our older ones are married, and we have five adorable grandbabies!

My trusty Nikon, Photoshop, Lightoom, and writing provide my favorite creative outlets. I hope to capture hidden things through my camera’s lens and details no eye has seen and to point the viewer toward the miracle of God’s creation and the reader to the finished work of the cross.

My love of essential oils inspired my most recent books: It All Began in a Garden (September 2020) and My Essential Oil Companion (July 2021), a study of 50 individual oils, their uses, and the plants they come from.
