Photographer-
also a Rainbow 

Hi, I’m Dana Gaydon

Whether you need Branding, Lifestyle or Commercial photography, I make it fun and add personality to every shoot. 

Making a vision come to life by incorporating specific colors, style, and personality is one of my specialties.


a little bit weird and A whole lot of fun

Doing a session with me is just like spending time with a friend. I've been told I'm a  a welcoming and accepting presence. My superpower is positivity!

For years, my clients have told me they love working with me because I make the process fun & easy.  I'm your cheerleader and can't wait to collaborate with you.

Nothing makes me feel more accomplished in my work than knowing I helped someone feel confident, comfortable but most importantly, their best self in on the day of our session and then in the photos.


I BELIEVE IN:

Telling the truth, sharing the light, finding color and that everything is connected. 

I'm NOT ABOUT:

Polarization and low vibrations.

YOU CAN FIND ME:

Laughing on photoshoots with my delightful clients, on coffee dates with friends, trying to match my surroundings, dancing to rap music.

Meditations, kissing my doggy + bearded husband, smoothies, yoga, and long hot showers.

Living a healthy lifestyle mentally, spiritually and physically is very important to me. If I have an ailment, my husband jokes "don't you have a crystal or oil for that?!"

This doggy angel makes every day better just by existing. I love watching him sleep on the couch from my office.
