people say the nicest things!


"Susan did a terrific job with our two very active Dalmatians. We were pleasantly surprised at how many wonderful shots she got and highly recommend her services for any pets. She and Mark were very patient and provided a variety of outside props/settings. We found it difficult making final selections but Susan took time with us to suggest ways to add multiple photos in beautiful collages. She also preselected some of the best options in a nice slide show which made things easier. We did not have any intention of being included in the photos but after seeing the examples of other families with pets we couldn't resist. We are both very modest but have to say this was the nicest photo we have ever had together commemorating a very special occasion. We highly recommend that the family portrait include your four legged family members as well. Thank you Susan for preserving the spotted loves of our lives in such a wonderful way. We highly recommend your services."

"Thank you Susan and Mark!! The pictures turned out fabulous and it was so much fun to work with you.

~ Sharon McKenna







"Susan was able to capture the very essence of our family. From the moment we arrived in the studio, to the time the session concluded, it felt like a homecoming; effortless and fun. Our portrait was a perfect reflection of who we are as a family. The pose Susan chose for the five of us, captured each of our personalities and it shines through in every photo. Choosing the "best of the best" was extremely tough; as we wanted them all. Susan doesn't just take pictures, she creates a timeless impression to cherish for a lifetime; and we will."

~ Darlene Cunha

"We brought our 2 dogs to be photographed by Susan. I thought they would be perfect angels and put on their "cute face" for the camera. They were anything but! My wife and I got into the picture to keep them calm and turned it into a family photo. I left thinking hopefully we get 1 good picture. When we went to look at the proofs we were so surprised that EVERY picture came out incredibly great! Even I looked good, which is no easy feat! One of our dogs passed away 10 days later so I am truly grateful to Susan for taking an incredible photo that we will always cherish. Thank you Susan."

~ Chris Brorup

"My husband saw you at the Hanover Mall and took your card. We wanted a nice picture of our dog Jackson. You did 100% better than we ever thought possible. Now we have the most beautiful memory of our family. Our portrait with my husband, myself, Jackson and our puppyy Sam is stunning to say the least. The beautiful frame just makes the portrait spectacular. We are over the moon with your work. We can never thank you enough!"

~ Patty Brorup

"I just wanted to thank you again for all the beautiful pictures of Angus and Archie. In May we lost Angus and I am so glad I had the portraits done when I did, or I may not have had the chance. You did such a wonderful job of capturing each of their personalities. Thank you also for all the time and care you took with my boys during their photo shoot. I have all the pictures hanging throughout my living room, and I will treasure them always,"

~ Maryellen Hunter

~ Kerrilee Pietroski







"I can't thank you enough for taking the time with me and Wizard during our sitting and for the beautiful , and for me, deeply touching outcomes. What you did was exactly what I wanted and will provide me with a memory of this special cat for long after he's left the planet. You captured just the feeling that I was seeking and it shows through each and every shot. This was truly an indulgence for me, but well worth it in every way!"

~ Elaine Killough

"I knew a few people that used you in the past and they highly recommended you, and I totally know why! I went to other studios and there is a clear difference between them and you. The patience you have and your ability to capture the perfect shot multiple times in one session amages me! We love our pictures! Everyone loves our pictures!"

~ Nancy Bell




"I would like to extend my appreciation for the professional work you did photographing my greyhound Gracie. Your attention to detail was above and beyond. You were so loving and kind as if you knew Gracie forever. Thank you for your excellent service and for making us feel at home. The photo shoot went off without a hitch! Stunning, outstanding and amazing, these are just a few comments I received on the photographs of Gracie. You captured her beauty but more importantly her personality. It was a pleasure working with you and I look forward to our next photo shoot. Kindly, Amy"

~ Amy Spaulding





"I brought my cat and dog to Susan White to raise money for the Standish Humane Society where I volunteer. A win-win-win transaction. Susan raised money for my favorite charity, I got amazing photos of my pets AND Susan rallied the Pet Gazette to put a cat on the April issue cover, my Nikki!!"

~ Barbara Ayotte





"Worth the drive from NH! I am absolutely in love with the pictures I ordered with my two dogs! Comfortable atmosphere, both Susan and Mark are friendly welcoming people who are great at what they do! I will return for more pictures in the future! Thank you!"

~ Hannah Heresy





"Susan White has been photographing my three children since we moved to the South Shore 14 years ago. My daughter just had her senior pictures taken by both Susan and Mark and they were truly pieces of art. I can't recommend them highly enough. They make everyone feel very comfortable and their studio is state of the art. You won't be disappointed in the end result!"

~ Suzanne Surette Foresman

"Susan and Mark - The best surprise of my life tonite came when my husband gave me the portraits you had secretly photographed of my family! You've outdone yourself yet again - such a gorgeous and meaniful gift at a time when I'm getting empty-nested. The color and composition are fabulous. It's a great presentation to hang next to the one you shot of those same little kids in 1996. (I think that makes the 15th session from your studio since 1986.) Your art has created the most beautiful keepsakes for us. Thank you!"

~ Jaqqueline Polito

"I loved all of the pictures today! Thanks again for everything, you're the best"

~ Anna Siegel








"Susan was great! Very personable, worked great with my inexperience at photo shoots and made the afternoon very pleasurable. Not to mention, the photos are outstanding! They all came out fantastic, it was hard to choose which ones to get. Great package deals too!"

~ Sarah Coffey





"Susan White photographed our wedding over 20 years ago. We liked her work so much ... that we hired her for graduation pictures for our two oldest kids. As a "bonus" we got Mark. Working with both Susan and Mark has been a pleasure, and their photography is exceptional. We enthusiastically recommend them when we talk to folks about professional photographs!"

~ Tim Reed





"We chose Susan White simply from the phenomenal reputation around town. The portrait idea was my husbands and I wasn't thrilled about a picture with 5 of us. As in the past, someone is always unhappy with their image. I could not have been more thrilled - even the dogs personality came out in the portrait. I pass our family portrait 5 times a day and smile every time. I absolutely love it!"

~ Sarah James

"We can't you enough for the beautiful portraits and prints. You have enriched our lives in ways that only you know how. We are so grateful!"

~ Colleen and Justin Kleya







"All I can say is Beautiful and More! I've had my 3 sons and my daughter senior portraits done with the two of you and they all felt so comfortable with the process. It's once in a lifetime they reach their 1st. Big Milestone from High School. They went above and beyond and I truly thank you and they will in future years for their children."

~ Andrea Sheehan







"I am always looking at your site to see your beautiful work. I LOVE your work, each baby is cuter than the next, each family is more perfect than the next and I love the new pet photos you now offer. My family photo's are hanging in our living room and I look at them everyday and am so glad we did it. Thanks again for the beautiful memory you created by stopping time for us on that day in the summer.."
