Hi! I’m Susie Cochran, wife and mother to two amazing daughters who have inspired me to dive into the world of photography.
I grew up in Germany and have always had a love for art. In fact I am a very visual person, I love creating something beautiful and have beautiful things around me.
My passion for photography began with my first born – a brown eyed, beautiful baby girl. I was obsessed with taking her picture and knew I needed a “fancy” camera.
Countless hours of research, practice and more practice, I finally decided to give my own photography business a try. Since then I have been learning and growing, taking risks, learning some more and giving to photography everything I can.
After doing this for since 6 years, I have had the pleasure of capturing hundreds of families, often every year since their babies were born. It is such a joy for me to see kids grow up and be able to provide timeless portraits for so many families!
As a mother I know it takes passion, patience and a good bit of goofy-ness to make children comfortable and smile naturally in front of a lens. I always take my time to let kids warm up to me .. even if that means to sing some silly songs...
Why Choose Me
Well, I hope that my work speaks for itself, but in the event that it doesn’t, I will give it a go with words…..
I have passion. I want your session to be unique and special. I, too, am a mom and a wife and I know how important these photos are to you.
My style is very relaxed as I like families and children to feel comfortable so we can make a connection. That way I can capture the most natural expressions and genuine emotion. I love snapping away while they make their silly faces, sweet smiles or throw most serious pouts. It’s important that you are comfortable and relaxed so you and your family will interact naturally. I want you to snuggle your spouse, tickle and hug your children and feel comfortable all around!
Thank you so much for your interest and trust in my work! I would be honored to capture your family, baby, senior, wedding or any other special times in your life.
