Maggie, Class of 2020: Rhode Island High School Senior Portrait Photographer

Taking Maggie’s senior portraits was extra special for me as I have know this lovely young lady since she was a newborn. Her mother and I have been friends since preschool! It’s hard to put into words how much I adore and respect Maggie. She is charismatic, beautiful, friendly, athletic, intelligent, funny and compassionate. She…

Maura: Rhode Island Portrait Photographer

I had a wonderful time photographing Maura again. This young woman constantly impress me with her intellect, creativity, talents and humor. To top it off, she is one of the kindest souls I know. I think all of these wonderful qualities make it easy to photograph her, as she just seems to be a natural…

Janelle: South Kingstown, Rhode Island High School Senior Portrait Photographer

Janelle is the ultimate outdoors girl – she loves to spend her time at her friend’s farm, horseback riding, playing soccer and at the beach with family and friends. So when it came time to plan where we would hold her high school senior portrait session, we decided that farm and beach would be our…

Erin: Narragansett, Rhode Island High School Senior Portrait Photographer

I met with Erin, her mom Kim and her best friend Julia at Scarborough Beach in Narragansett to begin her high school senior portrait session. The women drove down from Massachusetts to capture Erin’s portraits at the beach where she loves to spend her time, which I was so grateful for! We had a gorgeous…

Schold Family: Narragansett, Rhode Island Family Portrait Photographer

I love photographing the Schold Family’s portraits every year. Tara & Ross are raising such fun, intelligent, polite and interesting boys, which is not surprising because they are two incredibly funny people themselves and our sessions are always filled with laughter. It’s always a pleasure to spend an hour or so with them catching up…

Hailey: Rhode Island Portrait Photographer

It was such a pleasure to photograph this lovely young woman that I have known since she was a toddler. It is amazing to witness and capture these young people in my life (and the families that find me for portraiture) as they grow, marking specific times in their lives with a special portrait. Hailey’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.
