Creating memories for families like your is one the most important things I do as a professional photographer.
I understand just how important having a portrait that you love of your family is. You see, most people don’t realize how important a photo can be until they lose someone. And then that photo is not just a photograph any longer. It has their smile, their laugh, their crinkled eyes, that same shirt that was their favorite, it has their essence and their personality. It is what you have left besides some fading memories of them. I am old enough to have lost those most important in my life and I do cherish those photos I have. In fact, I wish I had taken more. What once seemed silly now seems important. So grab your cell phone or other camera right now and take a few photos and save them someplace safe. Trust me, you’ll be happy you did.
Many times we skip having family portraits created because we don’t like how we look or think it’s not that important.
And that is where hiring the right professional photographer comes in. I have the experience to help you relax and have fun during the session. And I know just how to hide those extra pounds or get the shy one to smile. Because, to me it’s important that you love the memories I create for you and your family. My clients become life long clients because I am able to get everyone to relax and really smile and laugh during the session. I have fun and love what I do, while working the photography magic to capture those moments.
Because these moments become the memories we cherish most as the years go by.
I offer family portraits on the beach in Galveston, at your home and at local League City parks. Each location offers it’s own unique benefits. You’ll find more information below about each one and be able to reserve your session right now while you are online.

Galveston Island and Beach Portraits

“I was so very pleased with Susan’s professionalism and ability to capture so many incredible images of my family. Honestly, with an 8-mos-old out past bedtime (dusk) and a restless 7-yr-old who just wants to play in the ocean — well, I thought we’d be lucky to take away just five good pictures…but I was surprised that Susan was able to capture so many fabulous pictures that evening. Even my husband stated after seeing all the pictures, “I think doing this was a great idea!” So thank you, Susan! We had fun, and are so thankful you were able to capture these special moments with our family! We’ll be seeing you again soon…”
We are not a part time photographer so you know you’ll have our full time
attention and not just until you are totally satisfied, but until you are so
happy you’ll tell your friends about us.
“The most important thing was to be able to enjoy our family every day and
to remember all of the fun times at the beach so I love seeing the portrait on
the wall, they are so life like, it brings me back to those fun times together”
You can trust that we will create a family photo capturing everyone just as you
are having fun, feeling relaxed and being together as a family.
Imagine having these special times captured in photos so that you can visit and re-visit them again and again as the years go by.

“The beach is our favorite family vacation, and it brings us great joy to see
our family united together, relaxed and having fun in our portrait” L. Walsh
Do you photograph Kids and Pets?
We love kids and pets!
With children, our strategy is to allow them to have fun, but in a way that insures
we get great portraits.
I have several “games” that I have created over the years that allow the kids to have
fun -but are really about getting everyone to relax and get the kids to really smile…
not just a “fake or goofy smile”!
And the “games” get everyone in position, facing the camera, and ready for a
natural relaxed and fun portrait. We strongly believe that having everyone enjoy
the session (especially the children) is an important part of our mission.
“The portrait of our twins on the beach makes us feel happy every time we see it.
Susan truly captured their innocence & special bond, everyone that comes to home
comments on what an amazing photo it is” J.& D. Dominguez
Just Relax & Have Fun
We know from experience that if you are having fun you are relaxed and if you are
relaxed you look great. That being said, we understand that when a photographer tells you
to “smile” it’s not easy to really relax and smile.
One of the reason’s we consistently create Galveston Beach Photographs of families and
children that our clients LOVE is because we
make the experience FUN. We joke with the adults and tickle the kids while we capture your
family’s memories and that makes for real smiles and relaxed, happy people!
