I am a professional photographer who started shooting models and portraits in early 2009. I have taken several composition workshops to help me improve as well as a mentor-ship for family photography. I learn something new every time I get behind the lens or open photo shop. I have a passion for photography and editing. I have edited every shot in my portfolio except for a couple. What I hope to get from this website is to make some new connections and build my portfolio as well as learning something new! I try to learn something from each life experience I have. I hope to meet some new and interesting people from this site. Contact me if you are interested in possibly working with me.
*** Will consider TFP's if all travel expenses are covered and the concept enhances my portfolio. ***

Testimonial from Whitney Francis Gold
"My first photo shoot with Suzanne was amazing. I arrived super late due to trouble at the Canadian border but the photo shoot was totally worth it and she was just glad I made it. From the accessories to the wardrobe to the location to the concept, everything was well thought out. However, it could just be that Suzanne has a knack for making magic happen. Suzanne is like a second mother to me. Very dedicated and passionate at what she does, she is no ordinary photographer!"

"My past photo shoots with Suzanne have been absolutely amazing! Her work is unique, professional, and phenomenal! She really knows how to bring pictures to life and you can easily tell that photography is her passion as to how much time is put into her work! If it wasn't for her I wouldn't be as far in modeling as I am today. No words are great enough to explain how great it is to work with her!"
