Welcome

Wedding, family, and pet photography, my family and friends, my dog and cats, the open road and good music, mountains, Maryland, being warm, adventure. That's what I love. This blog features images from my wedding and family photography business, Susannah Storch Photography. If you like what you see, be sure to visit my wedding photography site, my children and families photography site and my pet photography site for additional work. Thanks for stopping by.

As I constantly mention, I LOVE photographing the same families over and over. Not only is it fun to chat with the parents to see how their year has been, but it is amazing to connect with the kiddos and see how they have grown! Plus, since lots of children don’t necessarily LOVE having their photo taken, it is nice for them to be familiar with the photographer…having a history definitely helps with their comfort level.

I have photographed the family in this blog post several times…and these boys keep getting more fun and more handsome!

I learned something after I had my first kid: I should have gone out more. I should have gone out on long, lingering dates with my husband. I should have spent more of my free time with my girlfriends. I should have gone to more concerts. I should have gone on some epic trips to epic places. I should seen more movies in an actual movie theater. So when I was pregnant with my second, I knew I needed to get out there as much as possible. Weekly evening hikes with girlfriends? Check. Demanding some relaxing “me” time in the form of more frequent pedicures? Check. Flying to Arizona 6 weeks before my due date with my 16 month old son to be a tourist for several days? Check.

So, last October found me, my toddling son, and my dad in Arizona. Watch out Grand Canyon, Sedona, and the state’s back roads, we had some touring to do. Although bed time came early and meals out involved a toddler hanging from blinds and we didn’t do all the typical tourist stuff, I enjoyed visiting a new state and getting some of the travel bug out of my system until my second son is older. But mainly it was priceless to have my dad and my toddler spend some quality time together!

Below are some photos of our little vacation. Enjoy.

I love watching a family grow, and I have been lucky enough to capture several families as they have grown. Marisol and Michael were married in Denver at Artwork Network a few years ago (see their wedding photography post here). In addition to photographing their wedding, I have photographed their engagement session, their pet dog Marley, and now their newborn! LOVE! Enjoy these images of the little man when he was first born…

…which brings me to another thought. I have watched this little guy grow over the last few months via Facebook. He looks so different! Much bigger, but mainly his personality really shines through with each month. This is a reason it is nice to have at least a few good newborn photos. That time period is so fleeting, and Mom and Dad are often in a sleep-deprived haze (as I discovered myself thanks to my own little guy), and baby changes so, so quickly. Capturing the newborn time through photography is a great thing to have!

Another family session! This one was held on a windy, blustery day in Boulder last winter. I love that this post features a family with grown kids…family photography is important at all ages, not just when the kids are little. Enjoy.
