Thank you for visiting my website. Here, you will not only find information about who I am as a photographer, but also who I am as the person behind the camera. Hiring me as a photographer means you are inviting me into your life; likewise, I am inviting you into mine.


First I am a wife and a mother of three children, ages 24, 24 and 18 and two beautiful dogs. Secondly, I am a photographer. My family will always come first. I met my husband on the bus in 1989, before there was EHarmony or Match.com! He asked for my number and I gave it to him and we were inseparable after that.


I am happy. I go to bed happy and wake up happy and I always have been. I love capturing the moments of couples starting out their lives together and a beautiful growing family.

I started my working life in banking. After giving birth to my first child, I decided to be a stay-at-home mother. That is when I started to get a taste for photography, constantly taking photos of my baby’s milestones. After my third child started school, I began thinking about turning my passion—photography—into a career.


One thing you should know about me is I absolutely love photography. I love making new friends and showing them how beautiful they are with my camera. I want to make that person look at my photographs and love themselves even more because no one can love you if you don't love yourself.


Some of my other passions, interests, and hobbies include music, cooking and gardening. Music is a necessity in my life. I cannot drive or clean the house without it. If you follow me on Instagram—susanruddy, you will see some of my cooking creations!
