Portraits to treasure for a lifetime

Maryland Portrait Photographer Lonnie Dawkins


Hello and thank you for visiting my website.


I am a primarily a portrait artist focused on creating beautiful family and individual portraits to be printed and treasured as art ~ art that is highly valued and passed on to future generations.


Hopefully, you are visiting because you are considering having a portrait done.


I encourage people to not put off sitting for portraits as tomorrow is not promised and there should be no regrets at not having wonderful pictures to represent you.


Too often people wish they had taken a photo once it is too late. Waiting until you lose “10 more pounds” or waiting for some other reason might be waiting too long.


Gifting your children and family members with beautiful pictures of you, or of you and them together is important as those pictures become priceless treasures that last long after you are gone.


Professionally trained in fine art photography I am committed and able to make every image a piece of art. I am constantly investing and learning more about my craft. I lean towards natural lighting making it possible to photograph almost anywhere light exists. That means that you can choose to have your portraits done in your favorite location or in my studio. I have invested in top of the line photography equipment and my formal training includes studies at the Maryland Institute College of Art.


While family portraits are the primary focus I also provide headshots, portfolios and other photography services for models, actors, executives, and corporations. I also cover special events including weddings, conventions, funerals, and parties.


I love what I do and would look forward to meeting you and providing exceptional photography that you and yours will always treasure.
