Welcome to Susan Strawbridge Photography!
I emphasize color candids to capture the emotions, fun, love and energy of children, friends and families. Often borrowing humor from my two daughters, Elise and Westie, I have an energetic, creative and friendly approach to my sessions. Instead of relying on traditional poses, I prefer to watch and wait for the special moments that define a child or who you are as a family.
A sitting should be fun for you and your kids! Let kids be kids. I make children feel comfortable, enabling me to capture not only a moment but also an emotion. One of my greatest professional compliments came from a four year old boy who blindsided me with a huge hug at the playground weeks after our photo shoot and exclaimed "Hi camera lady! Can we have another playdate soon?"
The photos in my gallery reflect my candid style. I have enjoyed the special moments I’ve captured and would love to help your family create timeless pieces that you will cherish forever. And don't forget, great photos don't have to cost a fortune.
My work includes newborns, christenings, kids, families, dogs, birthday parties, graduation portraits, corporate headshots, product marketing, you name it.
$250 sitting fee advance payment appreciated to hold the date. Please contact me at email@example.com or 202-537-6646 for more details.
Special products for 2013 include:
Acrylic series: Mount a series of photos behind a thick piece of acrylic to create a striking, unique piece of art that adds incredible depth to the color and personality of your children. Work with me to create a 4/5 image series that is customized to fit the perfect spot in your home.
Happy Birthday to Me: After all that time and energy planning your child’s perfect birthday party, just relax and enjoy the moment. Susan Strawbridge will photograph the outdoor party, including individual shots of each guest (prints make a perfect thank you note!).
