Hi Everyone! Welcome to the Suzie Seagraves Photography Blog!
I am a child and family portrait photographer located in Orlando, Florida. I specialize in candid, on-location portraits of children and families. I like to photograph children as they are, in their own environment, to allow their true personalities to show in the photos.
My Studio Journal is a place where I showcase images from the sessions I shoot. Not all of them, just some of my personal favorites from each of my sessions. I like to share all of my latest work, along with my personal thoughts and photos from my life. You'll find it's a little more personal and indepth than my WEBSITE, with all the latest photos, news and happenings.
You can navigate through the pages by the clicking on the drop-down menus at the top or even search through the archives for previous posts. You can also use the LINKS tab for links to my Facebook page and My Gear. I hope you enjoy it and feel free to stop by often, but leave me a COMMENT when you do!! If you would like to schedule a portrait session, please email me at email@example.com.

I was born and raised in Orlando and get to see downtown every single day. You truly begin to take it for granted and forget the beauty in this city. I grabbed my camera and walked around downtown right at dusk last night to photograph around the city and its ever-changing skyline. Right about 7:30pm, there was the most AMAZING sunset!!! I hurried up and ran to the top floor of a parking garage and got the sun setting on the horizon. So beautiful. I love when I just grab my camera and go shoot for myself and for fun. Me, myself and my 5D, its a beautiful thing :)

I attended an awesome workshop today here in Orlando, The Rockstar Roadtrip, with two rockstar photographers, who I am humbled just being in the same room with! Corey McNabb, an amazing wedding photographer from Asheville, opened up with his wedding photography insights, and Amber Holritz, an amazing child & family lifestyle photographer from Chattanooga, finished with her wonderful world of portraiture. I also met some fabulous local photographers that were attending who I hope to now call friends. Anyone on the fence about attending this at one of their upcoming tour cities, I'm telling you to GO! Awesome workshop, lots of valuable info from two incredible photographers, you will not regret it. Thank you Corey and Amber for your time and graciousness today. You guys Rock! Here are a few shots I took:
I finally got to see my nephew yesterday for the first time in a few weeks. He is getting SO big! My sister came over and brought Zach's friend, Zoe, with them. How cute are these two??! We went and had lunch and then went to Uptown Altamonte. Of course, two 4-year olds can't bypass the fountain there. It was super windy and water was blowing everywhere. They were soaked when we left; but had an absolute blast! This was about 1pm yesterday at the worst possible time of the day to take outside pics, but we had fun and that's all that matters!
Someone was getting a little sleepy by the end of the day!
