hi there. my name is susie. i was born and raised in beautiful sunny california in the area that is widely known in common vernacular as the valley. upon my graduation from high school i went to brooks institute of photography in even more beautiful, although slightly more foggy, santa barbara california. there i honed my photographic and crisis management skills (yes, duct tape can truly fix anything). i have shot many album covers, children’s portraits, live music, and desinged a few websites, although i consider my ability to knit impecable arm-warmers my greatest achievement.
