Hello there!

My photo
My name is Susan, and Designs by Prater is what you could call my creative outlet that pulls together my photography, art and graphic design endeavors! The most important thing you should know about me is that my life revolves around my God and my Savior Jesus Christ, my family (especially my husband Todd, son JD, and puppy Lexie), family and friends. Other than that, I am pretty much obsessed with photography, Coca-Cola, and the color green (and all shades of green for that matter, especially teal). I love sports but cannot play them worth a lick. I would not trade my time as a college student at Mississippi State for anything in the world. The friendships and memories made there will stick with me forever...Hail State and Go Dogs! And I am very picky about my chocolate chip cookies, grilled cheeses, and shaved ice (gotta be SnoBiz watermelon flavor).

Weeknight Special
While I absolutely HATE losing an hour of sleep when we Spring Forward, I absolutely LOVE that the sun sets later in the day, giving me more time to play when I get home from my day job! So, in honor of this love/hate relationship with Spring Forward, we are offering special incentives for anyone who books a portrait session on a weeknight (M-F) after 5:30 p.m. Book a weeknight MINI session and receive a FREE 8"x 10" print of your favorite image. Book a weeknight FOCUS session and receive a FREE high-res digital download of your favorite image. (* A high-res digital download comes with a print release, allowing you to make unlimited reprints of your image in any size or format.)

April's Desktop Wallpaper
We thought we'd try out a new technique for this month's desktop wallpaper. This month's images were all taken mid-March at the Botanic Gardens in Memphis when the cherry trees were in full blosson. What a gorgeous site it was, and I am so happy for photog friends like Jennie who don't mind taking last-second detours just to grab a beautiful picture! Thanks, girl!

P.S. I am working on a fun new mini project, and anyone who books a portrait session in April will get to be lucky recipients of said surprise project. Stay tuned to the blog to see what it is...it will definitely be something for clients to BRAG about to friends...hint hint! :) God bless!
