What I Offer
During today’s busy times, we sometimes don’t stop to think about the real significance of our family. Making time for a family portrait communicates just how important they really are to you. A family portrait is more than just an image. It is artwork that tells a story. Your family is always changing and is unique. Don’t miss the opportunity to capture a chapter of your family history.
Don’t settle for ordinary senior pictures. Together we will capture your unique personality in a stylish fashion. My creative style and “dare to be different” approach sets me apart from other studios. To keep things fun and interesting, I’m always trying something new. I’ll make each portrait unique just for you so you look your absolute best in a creative artwork.
How much business are you losing because of your headshot? Shouldn’t you have an image that represents you in the best possible way? We understand that you’re busy and this is just one more thorn in your side. It’s our job to make the process of getting your headshot simple, fast, and painless. Over the past 8 years, we’ve developed a workflow that’s proven efficient. Our fully equipped professional studio means you get your headshots rain or shine. Susan Willis creates business headshots and personal branding for: Real estate agents, MLM reps, Doctors, Attorneys, Actors and more…
What I Do
Get The SWP Experience
At Susan Willis Photography, it’s more than preserving your memories. The focus is on you. The SWP Experience is a boutique experience like no other! You will be guided through your luxury portrait journey from start to finish: from pre-session consult to your in-home Session Premiere, all the way through to the delivery of your finished artwork. Between the time you book and the day of your session, we will collaborate about location and outfit selection.
On the day of your session, we will meet at the location of your choice and have a blast! This is the time to have fun and most importantly, be yourself! No one else can be you, and when you look through your images I want you to see YOU. I will help guide you in what to do so that you won’t feel awkward coming up with poses or facial expressions yourself (a lot of people are worried about that!). Just leave it to me!
