So much has change in my life since I wrote this about me page….My son Evan helped me with writing this as I was a newbie to website stuff and the simplest of tasks seemed overwhelming. This photo was taken during a time spent as a family for my birthday and is our very last family outing together. In November of 2016 Evan was in an auto accident that claimed his life. Then in February of 2017 I lost my Dad to lung cancer. Loss has a way of shifting your perspective. For me there is a yearning in me to see Jesus in the simple things and to feel the closeness of Him as I observe nature and creation. My desire to capture life is more acute as I realize that time is precious...each moment captured and realized is a part of the legacy I leave behind for all of the families that allow me into their lives to capture those moments for them.

My name is Dawn Kincade, and I began this photographic journey in the Spring of 2014. After accepting a job as an Event Manager of The Mondavi Center at the University of California, Davis, I found that I loved exploring the local landscapes and that taking photos gave me an artistic outlet. I have learned that each moment is precious and that I never want to miss an opportunity that should or can be captured.   

So much of my work is done for a variety of non-profits such as Slow Food Yolo, The Mondavi Center, Valley Church, Soroptimist International and for several local city officials.                                                                                                                                                         

I am so grateful to be brought into the lives of other people, whether they have invited me to capture moments of deep love with their newborn, or just a fun family or business event.

Come along with me on this journey so that we can explore together!
