My translation: right here. I love, adore, cherish being a part of family photography. The smiles, frowns, giggles or even upside down. It’s all so beautiful.  Thanks for letting me share. I LOVE WHAT I DO!!


New yummy product in store for you (studio sample shown)

Please keep in mind, this is an album I designed to my taste. There are literally so many fabric/pattern combinations to choose from, you name it. Susan Braswell Photography is now offering 3 different album styles to pick from depending on the collection chosen (also available a la carte). This has not been formally introduced but will be added effective immediately. As shown here a 10×10- 24 image album (12 pages/24 sides) with larger 8×10 and 10×10 images for the *wow* factor or just sheer viewing pleasure from your own session.  This album along with other fantabulous products are shown at ordering appointments. I {heart} the way this turned out.

*Not claiming to be a product photographer so hopefully these will suffice until you see the real deal.


Now scheduling Fall 2008 sessions - Office closed notice

Today’s forecast high 76 - 76?!! The extended 10 day forecast here in the Washington DC area looks awesome. For those who have sessions the remainder of this week, how lucky did you get with the weather? Score.

With the hint of the pleasant temperatures just a reminder, September is around the corner. Susan Braswell Photography now has the remaining 2008 calendar open for Fall/Late Fall sessions. Please contact the office to make your appointment.

Please note the office will be closed from Saturday, August 16th through Sunday, August 24th. All calls and emails will be returned accordingly upon my return. 

I have been busy with sessions and have not been able to blog each and every one, I apologize in advance. I will however set up automatic posting with some sneak peeks of while I am on vacation. 

How about an outtake - that I might just include in the gallery. A little scream goes a long way LOL. Believe it or not, before and after this shot some super stuff was captured. Dad gets brownie points for sure, this entire session was a surprise for his wife - a 10th anniversary gift. Mom got to stay home and pamper herself while dad did it all. As a wife and mother myself, I’d be mush if my husband did something like this. 


Me+Flopsy=Happiness Washington DC baby photographer

Me+Flopsy+90 plus degree weather=not so great. Isn’t this the sweetest set with beret? If she could only talk she would have told us how crazy this was - alas it lasted maybe 3 minutes. This 9 month old client was seriously one of the *happiest* smiliest babies ever (although she is staring with intent and curiousity here). What a blessing she is to your family, thank you and I truly enjoyed meeting you. 

“Jump!” Virginia Family Photographer, Northern Virginia Photographer

I lost my voice after this session, seriously. The stars were aligned as a few dates needed to be worked out and with their busy hectic schedule getting ready for vacation, try outs, college it was the one and only night to do the session. I will probably add a few more as there are just too many I adored. These kids (and mom and dad) were just awesome to work with. I enjoyed meeting you and will be in touch!
