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.…

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…

Sweet Little Newborn, Arianna: Rhode Island Baby Photographer

Last week I had the honor of visiting my friends, Matt & Danielle, and meeting their beautiful newborn daughter just hours after she had arrived in this world. For me, it is such an honor to have a couple choose me to capture their life’s progression and ultimately their visual history. We started with their…

Happy Holidays from Susan Sancomb Photography!

2012 was an amazing year for me both professionally and personally. I feel grateful and deeply appreciative for being able to make a living doing what I love. I’ve met so many amazing people through my business that I would otherwise never know and for that I am equally grateful. I would like to take…

Baby Liliana Has Finally Arrived! : Rhode Island Newborn Photographer

In July of 2010 I had the pleasure of photographing Lynn & Jay’s beautiful Narragansett wedding. So, when Lynn contacted me this year about maternity and newborn portraits, I felt so honored to continue to be a part of the big moments in their lives. Seeing them as expectant parents was fun, but meeting their…

The Sweetness of Sisters: RI Newborn + Family photographer

Beautiful little 2 week old Livia. She looks fast asleep and peaceful, doesn’t she? Well, not this little girl! She wanted to be a part of our “girl time” and despite 3 feedings and lots of soothing by her mama, sister and grandma (the photographer tried too!), she was not going to sleep. But that’s…

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.
