My name is Dawn, and I’m a Minneapolis-based portrait photographer. I strive for a mix of classic and candid photos that are natural, timeless and casual.

I think photography is so unique in its ability to freeze a moment. For the last 20 years I’ve been freezing moments and memories in my personal life. My love for photography started when I was an exchange student in Australia. Family and friends asking me to take their pictures over the last five years officially turned into Dawn Busch Photography in 2016. I decided to hit the pause button on my corporate career to turn my passion into my life’s work.

Nothing makes me happier than capturing the daily moments at any stage in life – birth, birthday or anniversary parties, families, kids’ sports events, even funerals. I love helping people re-live their memories.

Outside of photography I’m a wife to my best friend, mom to two awesome kids and a do-gooder in the community. I love giving back and helping to make our community stronger. I really enjoy watching my kids play hockey, finding my peace of mind through yoga and goofing around with our dogs.
