Headshot Mini-sessions for college students: A fundraiser for the URI student Food bank, “Rhody Outpost”

I am excited to announce that I am running a special on headshot/professional portrait mini-sessions for college students, geared towards graduating seniors who are interested in having a portrait to use for resumes, websites and blogs, graduate school applications, or just as a gift for their parents. You do not need to be a graduating senior in order to participate in this offer – any college undergrad or graduate student is eligible. The sessions will last 5-10 minutes and the price is $20! And here’s the extra special part of these sessions: THEY ARE A FUNDRAISER!!  $10 of your session fee will be donated to The University of Rhode Island’s student food pantry, “Rhody Outpost,” which helps to feed food insecure students. You do not have to be a URI student in order to take advantage of these sessions. Students from ANY COLLEGE are welcome!

This pandemic has effected so many people financially. It is my hope that by helping current students feel celebrated and hopefully secure jobs and internships, and additionally helping in a small way to provide food to students in need, my community continues to thrive and move forward in a positive way. I am an artist and a people person. This is how I know to give. If you or your student are interested, please contact me via email at susan@sancombphotography.com or by phone 401-749-5553.

For more information, here is a link to an article published in The Narragansett Times newspaper about the fundraising project I am doing.


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.
