I first met Brighton when she was in Elementary school and she and both our kids performed separately at the annual School Variety Show!  I knew then that she was going to be a very talented singer and performer and boy was I right. She is now in her senior year at John Burroughs High School where she is the President of the Award Winning Show Choir “Powerhouse”. This past summer she competed in the Songbook Academy in Carmel, Indiana.  She competed against many wonderful performers and at the end was named the 2016 Songbook Youth Ambassador! Here is the official press release announcing her as the new Songbook Youth Ambassador.  http://greatamericansongbookfoundation.blogspot.com/2016/07/california-teen-wins-top-honor-at.html.

Brighton we are all so proud of you…just keep aiming for the stars!

She came to me because she needed some professional headshots for her upcoming performances and auditions.  These are just a few of her fav’s from the session…enjoy!

This couple, and this wedding, warmed my heart from the very start.  I actually met Laura and Tim through mutual friends and hit if off from the very beginning. So when they asked me to photograph their wedding…I was just honored and so happy for these two. What I loved most about documenting Laura and Tim’s wedding, was that everyone was just so excited and there was such a beautiful mix of joy, excitement and tenderness throughout the day which was just lovely to document.

Extra special thanks to Debra Morrison for being the best second shooter I can ask for.  She is always there every step of the way…she totally ROCKS!

Congratulations, Laura and Tim! Thank you for letting me be a part of your big day.

Our really good friend Randy Barach (whom my husband went to high school with) was looking for theatrical style headshots.

He is an all around musician who plays many instruments.  Is a singer songwriter, composer in music, writes and produces original music.  He has toured and worked with artists such as Cher, Linda Ronstadt, Ella Fistgerald, Don Henley, Stevie Nicks, Miley Cyrus – just to name a few.  He also owns and manages his own production company, Spiritual Warfare Productions and has won awards for producing and directing motion pictures, sitcoms and commercials.

Randy was looking for headshots with a lot of “pop” so I was lucky enough to have my talented “Lighting Designer” husband in town to setup our studio for this awesome session.  Check out my husbands website: Shearer Entertainment to see his portfolio and get samples of his work.  Here are a few of my favorites from the session – enjoy!

    Riverside Event Lighting - Wow…Look at that bass/guitar… Great work, Susy! And the lighting is really good, too.

Julian is the youngest son of one of our dearest friends…Todd Jensen who is a talented editor and freelance journalist.  Julian is a very talented actor and performer and needed updated headshots for his upcoming auditions.  I had such a great time photographing this handsome young man and can’t wait to see him…Shine!

Hello blog! I haven’t been ’round much these days, have I? It had been one crazy holiday season and New Years but I’m so happy to say that I’ve been busy finally getting caught up on editing! Whew!

I absolutely love photographing this gorgeous family every year!  This is my beautiful niece with her adorable daughters and I can’t believe how fast her girls are growing up!  Time sure does fly when you have kids…lol!  I thought they all looked beautiful in their holiday outfits too!
