Photography is not as intimidating as it might appear. It's a skill and you can learn it. If you own a digital camera and want to learn to use it to take better photos of your loved ones, you want to start a photography business but don't know the first step to take, or even want to take your business to the next level - you have come to the right place. I dove into this industry without even owning a camera and little more than a can-do attitude. You got this! Believe me.
I BELIEVE IN MEMORIES AND MOMENTS AND all the tiny unforgettable things that happen in between. I HONESTLy, emphatically LOVE my work of creating a tangible memory of our happiest days. I take photos because I want to look back on them and feel the moment unfold in my mind and in my heart all over again. It's not about creating a perfect image or fitting a mold. it's about creating something that is AUTHENTIC and tells a story.
Seven years ago, I was watching Bravo mere days from having our first baby and turned to my husband and said, "I want to start a photography business." I used my talents as a lady in sales at the time to sell him on the idea that if I bought a DSLR I'd learn how to use it and I would never drag him to a photography studio. It worked!
I quit my sales job a few months later. I jumped in without a clue what I was doing determined to be my own boss and take control of my life. Years later, I have photos I cherish documenting our chaotic and laughter-filled life with four amazing kids and I have shared in the most incredible moments of my clients lives. Nothing would make me happier than to share what I have learned about photography with you and hopefully encourage you to take the plunge.

When I began pursuing my photography career, Susie was hands down the biggest catalyst in my education and early success. Her wealth of knowledge, extremely approachable personality and kind heart have made her not only an invaluable mentor, but a true friend. Undoubtably, Susie’s beautiful work speaks for itself, but connecting with and teaching others may very well be her most amazing gift. I can't thank her enough for all she's done for me!

When Susie came to take photos of our kids last year, they were still in their jammies with messy hair but the photos she took are perfect. She was able to capture my kids exactly as they were at the moment in the most beautiful way. I now have images that are authentic and unfiltered. It's exactly how I will remember them. I was inspired to try and learn and with Susie's full support and guidance I am now able to take beautiful photos of my children. I am so thankful for the choice I made to invest in my photography education with her.
