MEET SUSAN

Who am I?  Oh Lord, I'm a hot mess!!  (Just ask anyone that knows me)

I'm not shy, have been told I'm loud and crazy (the good crazy), I love to lip sync in the car, I have no filter, I love my dentist, I don't get embarrassed, must have coffee everyday, I'm a CANON girl, I love wine (red or white I'm not picky), I am a natural Blonde, but these days, the gray hair is now my natural highlight.  I've volunteered at my daughters old High School, Jesse C. Carson, for the past 8 years as their sports/event photographer, Pet hair is typically on my clothes (2 dogs), I love the beach (hate the sand), I love run-on sentences, I love to go on cruises, LOVE MY FRIENDS & FAMILY, I love to laugh, I love to make others laugh and smile and not just when I have a camera in my hand.  Life is too short to NOT be happy!  I am blessed to still have my BFFs from High School (Stacey, Stephanie and Angie), 

One of the greatest joys in my life is being a Mom to my beautiful and sassy daughter, Olivia. She is the reason I picked up my first camera and started shooting.  It all started with a Canon 35mm FILM CAMERA (yeah, that long ago) and of course my beautiful daughter as my muse. I started taking candid shots and displayed them on my desk and everyone at work thought they were "professional" and my photography career has evolved from there. I'm constantly learning and love all the possibilities that photography opens up in my world. 

As of 2022, I'm back in Virginia - I'm originally from NOVA and after being in the Charlotte, NC area for the past 24 years, I'm back HOME.  I'm now in Culpeper and looking forward to getting to know the area again and capturing all the memories!  

I am a location photographer and love being in the right place at the right time to get the perfect shot that people will cherish forever.   I am constantly on the hunt for new locations to help you design and capture your precious memories and milestones. If you have favorites or suggestions, I'm all ears.

I love what I do - really!  I am so blessed and thankful for each and every one of my clients - which have now turned into friends and family.

Thank you for considering Outgoing Portraits to capture your most precious life moments. I am excited for the opportunity to have you not just as a client - but as a lifelong friend.  I invite you to browse through my galleries to take a look at my previous work and all the fun we have during photo sessions.

xoxo - Susan
