"Oh how I love Susan! She has by far been one of my favorite photographers to work with. When choosing a photographer, you want someone who you feel comfortable around, responds to you quickly , and is personable (especially when they are shooting your birth and/or fresh 48). Susan is all of those things! Not to mention, she is incredibly talented and her work is amazing. The beautiful photos she took of my newborn and family are some of my absolutely favorite and are so special to me. Something I really appreciated is that she really took time to get to know me and know about my family when I booked her for my fresh 48 session . So I felt more than comfortable having her there to take photos during a very special and important time. If she was still here in Utah, I would have her at my next birth. Arizona is lucky to have her!"
"Susan is a true artist! She doesn't just 'take photos,' she sets the whole scene and makes every photo a masterpiece. I love how she asked me for my vision of what I wanted, too, so she could create a personalized experience. "
"Susan was such a joy to work with. She helped me pick outfits for my family, listened to my vision for my family photos, and gave us a perfect family photoshoot. She was especially excellent with my two little boys and was able to get beautiful pictures of all of us. I highly recommend Susan for any photos you need!"
"Susan is incredible at what she does. She has delivered not only beautiful family photos on multiple occasions but also incredible photos and video of the birth of my 3rd child. She was able to capture the real, raw, and beauty of those incredible precious moments that I don't ever want to forget. And thanks to her beautiful work I never will!"
"Susan was amazing to work with. I believe I was her first homebirth she photographed/videoed. It was such a beautiful experience. She was in the perfect spot to get the shot, but respectful of the space so I could labor and the birth team could do their thing. I would use her 1,000 more times!
"Sue photographed two of my kid's births, one in a hospital and one in a birth center and I CHERISH the images she captured both times! Despite less-than-ideal lighting situations (no natural light in the birth center room where the baby was born) she still created stunning imagery that we absolutely love."
"Susan photographed my sons birth story. My birth went so quickly and I was amazed at all the perfect meaningful moments that she got despite the speed! She was so supportive and kind and intuitive during my birth and even after! I was looking for a birth photographer, but honestly gained a friend! I was so sad when she moved out of Utah, Arizona is lucky to have such a talented heart filled photographer! If you want photos that will capture the true emotion of parenthood she is your girl!"
"Susan is the best!!! Here's why:
1- Pricing. Her prices are probably the best out there.
2- Support. She helped me select a location for our family pictures. She also gave input about our clothes. She responded quickly when I reached out to her.
3- Personable. My whole family felt comfortable with her the moment we met her. Even our children loved her, which helped them smile genuine smiles. Susan was able to capture so many great pictures. She was so thorough in the variety of pictures she took. I felt like she went above and beyond to give us the best pictures possible.
4- You will find your 'forever photographer' with Susan."
"I chose Susan to photograph my third birth. She was really impressed with the quality of her work and her ability to capture my birth in a tasteful, but raw way. She sent out a packet of questions to fills out prior to the birth and was able to stay in touch with my labor progress through my sister in law, who was with me during the birth. This took a huge load off of me having to respond to messages in between contractions. Sue has documented various birth situations from natural labor to epidural. She knows how to tell your birth story beautifully. She does film also!!"
