After visiting Dawne's most recent exhibition "Reflections - what is real or not", Paul commented:
"I was struck by the originality and diversity of Dawne's work. She has a veteran photographers eye. I realised that the images on display are the tip of the iceberg. Dawne's work could fill volumes. Her gum bichromate works and aerial shots took my viewing experience to a whole new enticing level".

"Having Dawne come into our home to document our American family was a pleasure. She is professional, yet laid back and easy going. She meshed with our family so well. We have a young son, and she was wonderful with him. She took the time to listen to him and form a relationship with him, so that he was trusting of her, which allowed the photography to go smoothly and seamlessly. Dawne was informative and was like having a teacher in our home, too. I am interested in photography but have never had any formal training. She included me in her thought process, showing me how and why photographs that she took turned out the way they did. Dawne was flexible throughout the process, handling our family's everyday ups and downs with ease. She endured an overflowing toilet and the family drama that ensued afterwards. Ironically, her photographs of those moments were some of her best work during the session (in my opinion)! At the end of our 2 day session, we had created a lasting friendship, and we were sad to see her go. We can't wait for the chance to work with her again some day. We will never forget the amazing experience. Thank you so much for everything, Dawne!

"Dawne has produced some beautiful photos of my pregnancy and family. She's always been very professional, and I've felt relaxed and comfortable working with her, and she is very versatile in being able to capture natural pictures or transform them into something more artistic".

"Dawne recently took photographs of our daughter and grandson. We were most impressed with Dawne's sense of fun and patience while taking the photos. Our grandson had as much fun having his photograph taken, as we did watching. The series of my grandson and daughter running together in the grounds of the vineyard were especially marvellous. Dawne is brilliant at taking happy natural photographs which look so much nicer than posed photographs. Dawne also took some wonderful landscape and aerial photographs on a day trip to Kangaroo Island. We would have no hestitation in recommending Dawne as a photographer to any of our friends and relatives".
