Best Glens Falls Baby Photographer

Alissa Vesterby-Rimualdo

"Having Susan come and take newborn pictures of our beautiful baby was such a blessing. She was able to capture this amazing time in our lives. She has a nurturing way about her that makes you comfortable and is at ease with babies so much I think even a newborn can sense that and be relaxed with her. I truly think that besides her talents behind the camera, the pictures come out so wonderfully because of the fact that they are so at ease."

Susan is an amazing photographer. She captures so much more than a photo, but rather a moment in time.

Susan is an absolute life-saver! I was in desperate need of quick turnaround on a shoot and she more than delivered! She is a talented portrait photographer who is able to capture a wide variety of images in which the subject appears natural, not obviously posed. It was a pleasure working with her.

Samantha and Theodore

"The photos she and her assistant, Jim, were able to produce are simply breathtaking. It's been 17 days since our wedding, and legitimately each day has had at least one friend or family member commenting to us about how amazing the photos from our wedding look! We could not be happier with the quality of photos Susan got from our special day! What makes it all the more incredible is just how fast Susan produced those photos and got them to us! A sample of photos was posted the very next day! Truly amazing, and we are so happy and grateful to have had Susan as our photographer for our wedding."
