Simply by Suzy Photography


When I was five, my mom would take me to the local library where I would look through endless books on weather and the stars because I dreamt of photographing them one day. As I grew older, my dad didn't see something like photography as a practical career so I decided to become a pediatric reconstruct-ive surgeon. Though I had a genuine love for health care, sitting in an MCAT prep class one night a wave of nausea hit me as I suddenly began to envision a reality of going to medical school for the next 12 years... it just didn't feel right and so I got up, walked out and never looked back.

I've also done work for companies such as Monica + Andy and Medela, Inc. to help them create branding and imagery that speaks to women and mothers. 

"Most of all, I love working with mothers and women." 

After giving up medical school I decided to get my Masters in Public Health while I figured out what to do next. I specialized in Maternal/Child Health and became a trained doula while writing my capstone thesis on the efficacy of doula support in childbirth. While working with my doula clients they started asking me if I could take pictures of their birth or of their family and somehow that evolved into Simply by Suzy Photography where I have had the pleasure of photographing over 700 mothers & families in the last 12 years. 

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.

my motto:

Fila disruptors, snowy days, big fluffy robes, a fresh bar of soap and traveling with my 3 year old. These are some of my favorite things.

I told my husband I was okay with 2 kids but now that our second daughter is here I think I might want 10.

Adventure is the cure for anything that ails you, but it's somehow also true that there's no place like home with the one you love.
