Welcome! Timeless Images by Susan is a full service, boutique studio located in Belleville, Michigan. It was born from my desire to create a business founded on superb service, impeccable quality and my love for beautiful photography. I have been a photographer since high school, continuing my studies into college, along with graphic arts and fashion. I worked in the fashion industry for over 20 years all the while, shooting on the side. Eventually I felt a strong desire to start my own studio and embark on this incredible journey, sharing my passion for photography with others.
Why photography? Because it’s fun and challenging and also a great art medium. It allows me to utilize my creativity in a beautiful way that also gives me the chance to meet a lot of terrific people and to incorporate my desire to “do good” and help out in my community. I specialize in high school seniors, beauty and headshots because they allow me to work closely with my clients and focus on relationships, so I can get to know my customers well. They are also areas where I can help people to feel really great about themselves!
I am a wife and a mother just like many of you. I lead a busy, crazy life filled with kids, dogs, family issues, laundry, grocery shopping, too many appointments, too many “yes I can do that’s!” and WAY too much time spent on the computer! I am very blessed to have an amazing husband, who is incredibly supportive of my business and a son who is the center of my world. As you would expect, I have documented pretty much every moment of his life! As I watch him grow, I’m always thinking about how fast the time flies and it reminds me of how important my job is and what a special gift I can offer to others. It is truly rewarding.
Your satisfaction is very important to me, which is why customer service is the foundation for my business. My intent is to cultivate lifelong relationships with my clients, not to merely deliver a service and send you off with a simple “thanks” and “have a great day”. I aim to deliver a total experience that involves open communication, attention to detail, a relaxed and fun environment, quality products and an ongoing relationship. I am here for you; let me know what you want/need and I’ll take care of it!
Quality portraiture is an investment in preserving your memories so they can be shared with future generations. I carefully select my portrait art products which include fine art prints, custom-created albums, canvas, fine art metal and acrylic prints and other specialty items. I want you to enjoy the experience of having impeccable wall art in your home, that will make your heart melt every time you look at it! To see samples of my portrait art products, click HERE.
I am a registered member of the Professional Photographers of America and I am a licensed and insured photographer. I continuously attend trade courses and seminars aimed at furthering my growth as an artist and deepening my knowledge within my field. I would be honored to have the opportunity to meet you and document the most important times in your life.
