Well, HELLO there!

Hello friends, family, clients, and fans!

Welcome to my blog! I am so excited to finally start this new blog and to share all of the exciting things happening with Susan Yates Photography. SYP has grown so much since 2010 and every year I intend to start a blog, but always seem to convince myself that I am just too busy. Well, over five years later my blog is up. I plan to share session images, tips and ideas throughout the year.

If you are a new follower to Susan Yates Photography, I am a natural light, on-location family photographer located on the coast of eastern North Carolina. SYP became known for its creative family and newborn portraits in 2010. I strive to create one-of-a-kind portraits out of life's most cherished moments for families across eastern North Carolina and families visiting the Crystal Coast. I've created one-of-a-kind portraits for clients that travel to the coast from Raleigh, Ohio, Virginia, South Carolina, Tennessee, New Jersey, New York, and much of the US during the spring and summer months for sessions while vacationing on the Crystal Coast.

Over the past five years I have met so many amazing families and children all along the Crystal Coast. I've developed friendships with many of my clients and I have been blessed to have met and photographed so many new and beautiful additions to this world. 2016 is approaching fast and I can already tell it is going to be even greater than last year. I am photographing the arrival of so many precious new additions to this world, updating family portraits and filling the calendar for North Carolina summer beach sessions along the Crystal Coast.

I look forward to giving you a glimpse into my personal life as well as introducing you to many of my amazing photography clients. I believe that every person we meet has a story to be told and it is my goal to capture these stories and show them off.

Thank you for joining me on my first blog post and please check back often for more updates on life through my lens.

If you are interested in a portrait session in 2016, feel free to email me at or by phone at 252-646-3994.

I look forward to meeting you in 2016!
