Baby Gable Makes Four: Rhode Island Family Portrait Photographer

All children are wonderful. We know that. But as a mother of a son, I have a very special bond with other “boy moms.” Em had revealed to me that she was expecting another child when we were working a wedding together last summer (she is a fantastic wedding planner), and of course, I was…

Sweet Little Newborn, Steven: Rhode Island Baby & Family Photographer

I couldn’t resist posting a sneak peek image of this sweet little, snuggly newborn, Steven. I had the pleasure of photographing his mother & father’s wedding a few years ago, and the honor of taking Steven’s first official portraits as well! Such a gift for a photographer to get to chronicle a family’s biggest moments.…

Logan in Narrow River: Rhode Island Family & Children’s Portrait Photographer

This part of summer in New England is the sweet spot. The water is comfortably warm, summer clothing is gently broken-in, sand dusts the seats of our cars and sun-kissed skin and hair reflects our time spent outside.  The last school year is blissfully in the past, yet the start of a new school year…

Reid is a Big Brother! Welcome Baby Sister Bridget: Rhode Island & Massachusetts Family Portrait Photographer

In 2012 I had the pleasure of photographing Tristan & Katie’s wedding on Block Island. It was a beautiful day in every aspect and the newlyweds quickly become some of my favorite clients ever. We’ve stayed in touch, and a little over two years ago they had their first child, a son, Reid. Two weeks…

Kailey: Rhode Island High School Senior Portrait Photography

I had a wonderful time photographing Kailey’s senior portraits. She is an impressive young woman and was a pleasure to photograph.

I think it is my excitement…

Hi there


About Susan

My wedding and portrait photography business is located in the heart of South County, Rhode Island close to URI and the scenic, south coast beaches. I grew up here and feel so lucky to be able to work and create in such a beautiful location! My approach to photography is much like my approach to life: creative, relaxed, natural and fun. I would describe my style as a blend of candid & photojournalistic with traditional & artistic images. I love taking the time to create some beautiful, romantic portraits of my brides & grooms, but also the spontaneous moments throught the wedding day. 

I consider my website and blog a place where I can visually journal about the amazing people and places I get to photograph. Not only do I consider myself exceptionally lucky to be making a living taking photographs for people at important moments in their lives, but I also get to meet an amazing cross section of people I might not otherwise get to know. In the ten years I have been in business, I have had the chance to photograph couples riding high on the excitement of their recent engagement, on their wedding day, parents-to-be waiting to meet their new child, newborn babies, children marking milestone birthdays and families who want to remember a certain time in their lives by capturing it in a photographic portrait.  

In more recent years, I have had the opportunity to photograph the weddings of younger siblings and friends of previous wedding clients, and the maternity, newborn and family portraits of couples whose weddings I photographed in years past. It feels amazing to know my creative vision of these occasions is a part of their lives and their family history and I am grateful for each and every one of them. When I say I love what I do, it is from a genuine place. I can't imagine doing anything else and feeling as creativly satisfied and pleased to make my clients happy.  

I studied photography at Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) for undergraduate school and received a Master of Fine Arts degree from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale.
