MEET SUSAN: The Photographer

Susan Willis Photography

I love life! I love dark chocolate, a great love story, and the magic of Christmas. I love casual, comfortable clothes. My go to wardrobe is a tank top, jeans and flip-flops, but I adore dressing up.

I didn’t set out to be a photographer…

The path was chosen for me. My cancer journey taught me how important it is to document life right where you are and to cherish every moment. My heart’s desire is to show you how beautiful and wonderful you are at this moment.

I have always been a bit uncomfortable when a camera is pointed at me, but this gives me an authentic sensitivity towards everyone I photograph. I believe there is no greater honor than having someone trust me to capture the authentic, genuine moments that will become their family’s precious heirloom.

More than anything, I love meeting new people, hearing their unique story, learning the details of what makes them one-of-a-kind, and weaving that into a photographic story. I believe in more than just making portraits, I believe in creating heirloom wall art with unforgettable experiences.

Loving life in Murphysboro, Illinois and proudly serving clients throughout southern Illinois and St. Louis, Missouri with occasional destination sessions in Charleston, Nashville, Tampa, and Tucson.
