People call me Sushi – but Susie works too.  I'm a Chicago based photographer and graphic designer.  I'm an L.A. native but moved to Chicago five years ago, much to the shock and dismay of my sunny, desert-dwelling friends and family.  My love for photography started in a darkroom workshop in 7th grade and is still going strong.  I love to shoot just about anything, but specialize in people, food, and event photography.  Currently, I'm doing a deep dive into food photography and styling for Chicago based restaurants. 

Photography, the visual medium that it is, also lead me down another path.  For a long time, I had been mystified by graphic design and eventually my curiosity and interest bubbled long enough.  I signed up for an in-depth graphic design program and loved the new world of visuals I could create.  The photographer eye in me thrived on alignment, color palettes, typography and the like.  Since then, I have over 3 years of experience in the design world and can't wait to create more. 

When I'm not shooting and designing, I can be found loving on my pets and getting in as much music and travel possible with my hubby, Jeremy. 

If you'd like to work together... ready? Set? 

Let's go!
