Dawndra Budd… Not “just” a photographer… STUNNING “artist”




I can NOT say enough GREAT things about this lady right here!  Not only is she one of the coolest people… her photographs  are TRULY a works of art.  She takes such pride in each and every click of her camera and it shows.  I met her years ago when her photos hung above my station and lingered all around the salon I worked for  … Displaying her talent for others to get to know and absorb.  I was fascinated by her images, they spoke to me… telling me the story that was meant to be documented .  This was years ago… and she just keeps getting better every passing day.. Hard to believe but true… She is honestly born to be behind a camera… You can not learn what she does. She is in a league of her own.  I had the amazing opportunity to work with her a few times ( every day would never be too much )  also being in front of her camera,  photographed by her …. which if YOU get the chance to do would be a bucket list experience… Again, I can NOT say enough about Dawndra..   Please check her out for yourself..
