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).
wow! i can't believe how fast time has flown by, especially since my last blog post. so much has changed since then, yet so much has stayed the same. take this new family of three for example. the last time we showcased them, they were eagerly awaiting the arrival of their baby girl. their minds and dreams were filled with wonder about what she'd look like and what all quirks and personality traits she'd possess. now, just a few short months later, they have her every smile and facial expression memorized and are already seeing her sweet little personality come to life! their love for her grows every day, as does their love for each other.
i was once again blessed to follow them around for awhile to document everyday life with their new bundle of joy in their home. below are just a few of my favorites :)
