Meet Tiana Dawson of Jadore Janine Photography

Today we’d like to introduce you to Tiana Dawson.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Tiana. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I started my company while I was going through a difficult time in my marriage. My now ex-husband and I weren’t seeing eye to eye, and I felt that I would go crazy if I didn’t find something to shift my focus to. That was 2 years ago, and now I am a traveling, published, lifestyle and portrait photographer.

Has it been a smooth road?
It has definitely not been a smooth road. I tried to quit photography for about three months at the beginning of this year because I was so overwhelmed and did not know how to balance this with school and work. Did I mention, I went through a divorce? So, life definitely got stressful. But God provided and I came back better than ever!

We’d love to hear more about your business.
I believe I am known for capturing the hearts of those on the other end of my camera. My goal is to discern how I can capture the personality of each person and translate it through my photos. I believe what sets me apart from other photography businesses is that I genuinely believe in the power of love, family, and confidence. My divorce did not derail me from the idea of marriage. It encouraged me to pursue the correct idea of marriage and family life. Where mine lacked in love and purpose, I try to encourage those before my lens that love is possible.

Is our city a good place to do what you do?
I believe Los Angeles is a great business for my company. I would definitely recommend starting your business in LA. It’s a melting pot and someone is always looking for a solution to their questions. If you are that solution, you will be successful.
