in the end

Photos preserve our memories and help us pass those memories into the hands of future generations.  Our photos are part of the legacy we leave . . . a window into a moment, who we were and what we valued.  I want to document the most important people and times of your life!

life is all about the moments

hello & welcome

Hi there - I'm Susan Dukat!  I am based out of Spring, TX and have been a professional photographer since 2010.  I began my photography career in Tucson where I mainly focused on children and families while second shooting for a high end wedding photographer.  We moved to Colorado in 2014 where I focused solely on family portraiture.  I now continue my love for family portraiture just from the Lonestar state!

Susan D Photography serves Spring, TX and the surrounding area.  SDP offers a full range of sessions to meet your family portraiture needs.  SDP offers both studio and outdoor sessions depending on the type of session and lets be honest . . . the time of year!  Take a trip through Susan's extensive portfolio and see if SDP is a good fit for your photography needs.

What to expect

My style is a combination of clean and classic mixed with organic and earthy.  I mainly stick to neutrals in the studio but don't mind throwing in a splash of color here and there.  You will find that I keep things simple with limited use of props.

Family sessions are a mixture of posed and lifestyle and are typically held outdoors.  I photograph in and around the Benders Landing area, always during the last 1 and 1/2 hours before sunset. 

My newborn sessions are posed and held in my home studio.

Upon booking you will fill out a new client questionnaire that will help me understand your vision for the session and you will also be invoiced for $75 which is a non-refundable deposit to hold your session.  The remainder of your payment is due on or before your session.  Your invoice will go over payment options.

Before your session you will also receive session prep information.  Included in the session prep will be the most common question . . . WHAT TO WEAR!  For family sessions I have a Pinterest board I will send you for inspiration as well as some other tips and guidance.  For all other sessions I have options in studio.  I have newborn wraps, outfits, headbands, etc.  Rompers for toddlers as well as a selection of maternity gowns.  In your session prep guide we will go over what is appropriate for each session and of course if you need any assistance I will be available for consult.

After your session you will receive a PROOF gallery of your images.  Proof galleries are not final edited images.  They are simply a gallery of the best images from the session with some very basic exposure adjustments.  You will choose the images you want from this gallery and then I will final edit those images.  Proof galleries will be emailed to you within a week of your session and your final edits will be delivered within two weeks of receiving your image selections.
