Sweet Anticipation: Rhode Island Maternity Photographer

When Deb & Jeff hired me to photograph their wedding years ago, we instantly bonded over our love of dogs – specifically boxers and Boston terriers. They have two of the sweetest pups, Mollie & Ruby, who joined us for Deb’s maternity session, since the pups are – of course – the fur kids of…

A Mother & Her River: Narragansett, Rhode Island Maternity & Family Photographer

Elizabeth is also a photographer which made taking her portraits both exciting and a little intimidating. When we spoke about doing a trade of family portraits for each other, we also discussed taking some maternity portraits of her alone. After capturing portraits of Elizabeth with her husband and two adorable daughters, we walked the length…

Expecting: Rhode Island Maternity Photographer

In 2010 when I photographed Lynn & Jay’s wedding, Lynn was a stunning bride. Now, almost two years later, she is a beautiful, glowing, mom-to-be and I couldn’t be happier for she and her husband. I can’t wait to meet and photograph little baby L in a few weeks and finally capture Lynn & Jay…

Becky + Brian, Maternity session

Three years ago I had the pleasure of photographing Brian & Becky’s beautiful wedding at Glen Manor in Portsmouth, RI. The weather was perfect, the setting spectacular, but even better was the obvious joy and contentedness this couple brings to each other. So, I was thrilled to recently discover that Becky is expecting with their…

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.
