A new baby, a growing belly or just because.
Let me tell the story of your life. 



My name is Suzzane and I'm a lifestyle photographer based in Chicago. I've spent 10 years photographing families all around the world, helping them to preserve their most cherished moments, and I'd love to help you do the same. I've also worked for commercial companies such as Monica + Andy and Medela on achieving branding and imagery that speaks to moms and families.  I have my Masters in Public Health with a focus on Maternal-Child Health,  and I spent 6 years as a trained doula serving women in childbirth and postpartum recovery.

About

But the best title of all is when I became a mother 18 months ago. This was the very first moment I met my daughter after a very unexpected c-section. I like to think it was the first moment of preparation for the many times motherhood is going to completely rock any expectations I have.

ABOUT

Family & friends, traveling the world, Dr. Rhonda Patrick, bulletproof coffee, biohacking, writing in my journal, the Joe Rogan podcast, getting to know new people, deep talk, a brand new bar of soap, Freda Salvador shoes, great photography, our first wedding day at city hall, When Breath Becomes Air, turkish rugs, Parks and Rec, an open mind, Stone Fox Bride... these are all my favorite things.

"On top of the actual artistic experience, suzy is the type of person you trust and feel comfortable around - key qualities for someone who will be coming into your home and accessing the most intimate parts of your life & emotions."

Maura

"Suzy is a true talent and takes her photography to another level. All you have to do is look at the pictures on her website and her blog to know she is the best out there. She is so easy to work with and has a gentle sweet way with the kids. You'll never want anyone else to take photos after you see what she can do. I really can't say enough glowing things about her and what she delivers. She is worth every penny."

Camilla

"Time and again, I've been shocked by Suzy's willingness to work tirelessly for our family to get a photo just right. She has, on more than one occasion, come back to our home for a second time if she didn't manage to get a photo that I wanted, or something didn't turn out just so. In this day in age, that kind of service is the exception. And, when combined with Suzy's easy disposition, sweet eye for detail and willingness to go above and beyond to capture your firstborn's teeny tiny butt cheeks, well, you just can't ask for more."

Cassandra

"I first found Suzy through her breastfeeding project. She was looking for volunteers and I decided to step out of my comfort zone to be photographed nursing my son. She made the experience not only comfortable, but enjoyable. The photos were so beautiful; I saw my post baby self in a whole new light for the first time."

Angela

"Everyone who saw our photos on facebook were gushing over how incredible the photos were. We made photobooks for family members and everyone got a framed photo last year for Christmas. These photographs went a long way. And... my husband, he thanked me for talking him into hiring a photographer. Our son is 6 months old now and Those tiny one week old moments slipped away so quickly, these photos are so meaningful and special to us and I can't imagine anyone else capturing him quite like Suzy did."
