Family Portrait Photographer
Engagement, newborn and baby, and family photography services to capture the memories.
Taking a picture of a two year old is no easy feat, but Susie was so professional and personable, she was not distracted and just went with the flow of whatever my daughter wanted to do.Kimmy Casey
What sets Susie’s family portraits apart from other photographers is her unique ability to embrace and include the background and surrounding environment into the scene. Often, when we look back at family photos, we remark on changes in the environment, “look how new those drapes looked!”, “remember when we had that picture over the couch?” It’s not just the people that change throughout the years. Susie uses her candid and documentary style photographic voice to create memorable family portraits for each family she photographs. Having come from a larger family, Susie knows the absolute blessing it is to bring the whole family together and have just one moment captured for years to come. Her eye for composition and background in acting and performance art lends itself well to working with large groups, and she brings out the natural happiness families create.

Design Services for Small Businesses
Traditional fine art including acrylic, oil, and watercolor paintings, ink, and mixed media art.
Susie has been a fine artist since kindergarten. Her love of color and dynamic compositions led her on a journey through realism, into abstract expressionism, and out the other end with pure abstract creations. A great fan of symbolism and conceptual art, Susie began incorporating energy healing ideals into her art in 2013 when she passed her Reiki II certification. Susie paints as a form of art therapy, as well as saying “I just can’t NOT!”. She has displayed her art at the Erie Art Museum and is a member of the PIAA (Presque Isle Artist Association). She uploads her latest creations onto her Instagram account at @srhosterman.
Fine Art Photography
Wilted flowers, haunting portraits, and neglected locations make up only a few of Susie’s poetic fine art photographs.
In 2005, Susie stopped taking funny photos of her friends and began ‘seeing’ for the first time. At first, she saw rust– and lots of it. After that her focus turned to small creatures in nature, followed by reflective portraits. Once she was invited to an abandoned location and her love for urban exploration blossomed. Eventually she saw the vast personalities of plants and landscapes and set up home there. If you were to ask Susie she would tell you “these are a few of” her “favorite things!”
