CAPTURING YOUR JOY

is where I find my joy.

PHILOSOPHY

I believe the most cherished portraits are not the ones with the most perfect pose or the most perfect wardrobe—but rather the ones that most perfectly capture the essence and spirit of the people involved.

When I engage with an individual or a family for a portrait session, I do everything I can to set them up for success. That means getting to know my clients. Helping to find the location that best suits their personality. Helping them make appropriate wardrobe and prop choices. Choosing a time and a place that we will have the best light and best conditions. But most importantly, it means making them feel comfortable enough to be themselves. When my clients are at ease and experiencing joy —whether it’s a child chasing a leaf, or a grandmother surrounded by her extended clan—that is when I have the privilege of preserving a special moment in time.

Sue’s photographs capture the essence of our children perfectly. She was able to put our kids at ease and in a short photo session produce so many amazing shots that we are having a difficult time choosing! Her rates are reasonable, her demeanor—lovely and professional, and the results are fantastic!

Love, love, love Susan Ogar Photography! We had Susan take photos of our six year old twins (not an easy task!). She is a thoughtful photographer who took the time to learn what we wanted and added great ideas of her own. She caught the kids with such great facial expressions—you can really see their personalities come through the pictures. I also loved her garden studio—the vibrant flowers, bench and rock wall. I will treasure the photos forever!

The Bedard Family

Love Susan, and feel so blessed to have had her not only do my daughters senior pics (rave reviews) but also family pics that day!! Considering I hate pics of myself but bought 2 of them from her speaks volumes!!! She was able to capture my daughters heart so quickly, she knew exactly what to do with her to get the best pictures, I will treasure them for ever!

Linda Gadilauskas

Sue is an amazing photographer! She always captures my daughter’s true personality in each photo. I love how Sue likes to take photographs outside – she finds the perfect spot and lighting in any natural setting to make each photo unique and creative. Sue is both easygoing and confident, and it’s clear that she loves what she does.

STYLE

In addition to being a professional photographer, I’m a wife and a Mom to two young kids. I know what it’s like to try to pose a family. When you tell a kid to smile, the result is often inauthentic at best. When you ask a teenage boy who lives in sweats to put on a tie, he may have a hard time being himself. And the resulting photos will show it. That’s why I stay relaxed and approachable when I take photographs—and encourage you to do the same. I prefer to use natural light, whenever possible. And I strive to capture those moments of authenticity—whenever and wherever they appear—always mindful of composition, light, and perspective.

BIOGRAPHY

My desire to capture and preserve moments in time began at an early age. In the 1980s I began photographing as a hobby. My interest quickly turned into a passion, and after comprehensive education, ultimately a business. In 2007 I gave up my 12+-year career in publishing and marketing to become a full-time photographer, capturing moments for individuals and families in Central and Eastern Massachusetts. I continue to learn and expand my photography skills through education and training.
