Simply by Suzy Photography

This year my family and I teamed up with Monica + Andy to create our very first online photography course for parents. I've been photographing families professionally for over 10 years but it wasn't until I became a mother myself that I truly realized how much our moments of joy happen outside of a professional photoshoot and I want everyone to have the tools to capture them in a way that is beautiful and meaningful. And more than getting pretty pictures, photography is something that's helped me to see my worthiness... it's helped me to become a real team with my husband... and it's helped me to connect more deeply with my children. how much photography has helped me. Photography has done all of those things for me and my family and now I want you to have that gift too.

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. 

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.


Are you about to have a new baby? Does your partner love photography and is always asking you to take their picture with your kids? Do you want to learn how to make photography something that's fun for everybody in your family? Photography has brought so much joy to my life and helped me to see all of the magic in it, and now I want you to have that gift too.
