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.


Specializing in documenting moments in the lives of high school seniors.

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

Each session includes a consultation to plan every detail of your shoot.

“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

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


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

Currently SOLD OUT for the 2022 senior season. Feel free to reach out to inquire about cancellations. Also happy to give recommendations for other photographers in our area.
