Mary is a life-long resident of the Monroe/West Monroe area. She launched Dawson Photography in 2003 and has been blessed to capture the memories of her clients through the years. Mary's desire is to capture and preserve your priceless memories in timeless, beautiful photographs and products of high value at a fair price. Furthermore, Mary believes in the tangible print; portraits should be printed for display, to be viewed by others in order to be touched, inspired or take one back to another moment in time. Photographs hold our memories so that others might SEE them.
