About Susan of McLean Photography
I’m not sure if it’s because of the birth of my two girls or my instinctive need to fuel my creative spirit that sparked my interest in photography. Before I became a mom, I spent 10 years designing and building websites for a trade association, then I branched off on my own (at the encouragement of my entrepreneurial husband) and started my own company in 2003, Z to A Creative. It’s a thriving business and I love what I do.
But… Once I had children of my own, I began snapping photos with my handy point-and-shoot of my firstborn, trying to capture every moment, every smile, every milestone and every joy.
In the process, I realized a new artistic passion, marrying my love of the visual and the art of graphic design to create something beautiful and timeless. Photography has become my way of documenting my children in the moment; it’s my way of preserving the detail of their childhood and the innocence that brings. By coupling my photography passion with graphic design, I became completely hooked.
I would be honored to work with you to create visual memories that will last a lifetime. As an Orlando, Clermont, Winter Garden, Windermere and Central Florida photographer, I love capturing the natural portraiture of newborn babies, children and families. A child’s sweet, shy smile, their serious faces and the innocence of their joy-filled laughs are so much fun. I also enjoy capturing lasting memories for families that they can treasure, and creating one-of-a-kind styled sessions for teens and high school seniors that they’ll never want to end. This endeavor is truly a blessing. I look forward to meeting you!
