Meet Susan

I am passionate about celebrating the beauty in all people, spreading kindness (especially to those in need) and creating our own happiness.

My focus is on helping you tell your story by designing portraits that capture your truth and leave you feeling full of confidence, love and self-worth.


“Essentially what photography is is life lit up.” – Sam Abell

If you are interested in investing in more than just a print or image, but in the capture of your essence, the revealing of your true self (or that of your child), let’s chat.


Documenting moments in the lives of high school seniors and children beyond the age of 3.

“When you photograph a face… you photograph the soul behind it.” – Jean-Luc Godard

Stylized Shoots

Exclusive stylized theme based sessions offered a few select times per year.

“It’s one thing to make a picture of what someone looks like, it’s another thing to make a portrait of who they are.” – Paul Caponigro


Specially designed, periodically offered for clients who want a quick shoot and a few digital images to cherish.

“Photography is about capturing souls, not smiles.” – Dragan Tapshanov


I love sharing my interests with my clients and learning about and from them too.
