Once upon a time, there was an 8-year-old girl who looked through a camera and saw the world. She grew up to be an artist, a photographer, and storyteller, and she never forgot the power that pictures have in creating connection – how reading a book with amazing illustrations or seeing a photo from your childhood immediately takes you back to that moment, that place, those smells, that emotion.
I still haven’t.
That’s why, as a photographer, I strive to take photos that capture not just an image, but a feeling. Whether I’m taking a portrait, creating an editorial spread, or photographing those simple but monumental moments that happen as a teen gets ready for prom or a child plays on a sunny Saturday, my job is to create pictures that trigger a memory or evoke an emotion. Each image should tell the story – your story – as richly as possible, so that you have a connection whenever you see it. After all, connection is what good story telling, and good photography, are all about.
So let’s talk, let’s play, and let’s create some amazing pictures.
I can’t wait to learn what story you want to tell.

Susie Mann is second-to-none in capturing stunning pictures of any occasion! She's done a photo shoot for my teenage daughter and helped her to feel comfortable and guided her so that she felt totally at ease in front of the camera, allowing for very natural and charming pictures as an end result. We then scheduled her for Prom pictures - it was the time of our kids lives!! 4 couples, outstanding and very unique pictures that were the talk of the high school and once again my daughter, and all of the kids and parents, were thrilled. We highly recommend Susie Mann for all of your photography needs - the most professional and gifted photographer that we've ever worked with!
