Dawn Heumann Photography

Chapter: San Francisco /
Pro Type: Photographer

Dawn's childhood shaped her into precisely who she is today. Her father, a filmmaker who specialized in travel films, would shoot and edit them while her mother wrote and produced them. Together, they toted Dawn across the world as they created these captivating films. The upbringing not only trained her to constantly see the world through a lens, but it also taught her to be curious, resilient, and kind.

At her core, Dawn is a heart-driven storyteller and shows up as a familiar and approachable artist who searches to elevate every client’s brand in an authentic way. Being collaborative at every stage of the process is the way Dawn works best. She comes to the table with lots of ideas, but she also loves receiving feedback and enjoys morphing the approach into something that feels like a crew-wide effort. Dawn works from the central belief that team energy is the best energy, and is continually inspired by the stylists, photo assistants, models, art directors, marketing professionals, and producers she works with on a daily basis. She prides herself on bringing an energetic, positive, and can-do attitude to every project, and she takes delight in being the photographer who you'd want to be on set with.
