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).

Modern Photography

I specialize in modern journalistic photography for families and LOVE capturing the special moments in your life that naturally happen. So just let me follow you around for a bit, and I will be sure to freeze in time all the warm smiles, hearty laughs, emotional tears, and comfy hugs!

I am a natural light, on-location journalistic photographer and love to meet clients at fun locations and use available light with a minimal off-camera light setup. This leaves us free to select a location that is meaningful to you and to capture lots of candid moments I might otherwise miss while trying to setup a different backdrop and/or lighting situation.

Portrait sessions can be used to FOCUS on whatever you want - you, a couple in love, a high school senior or college graduate about to embark on the world, a preggo belly or squishy newborn baby, etc!

the fine print
* your session fee is non-refundable and must be paid at the time of booking to consider your date officially reserved on my calendar. i accept payment by cash, personal check, credit card or paypal. please make all checks out to Susan Prater.
* if you need to reschedule your session for any reason, please give at least 24 hours notice. i will make every effort to reschedule your session for another open date on my calendar that also works for you.
* your images will appear in a secure online gallery for viewing and ordering within 2 weeks of your session. let me know in advance if you want to password-protect it. your gallery is only guaranteed to remain live for 30 days. You will be assessed a $25 re-posting fee should you need to have your images posted again after the gallery expires.
* aside from the basic edits applied to all images in your gallery, final edits will be applied to all images included in your print/product orders to make sure they look their absolute best when displayed in your home or given as gifts. this includes custom sepia and b&w edits when requested.
* an additional travel fee will apply for locations more than 30 miles away from 38017, based upon your location. on occasion i will be in the following mississippi cities visiting family and friends, so I am happy to book sessions within 30 miles of these zip codes without the additional fee if I am already going to be in town: brandon (39047), madison (39110), columbus (39705), and cleveland (38732).
* high-resolution digital files of edited images from your session come via an online PASS gallery w/ a print release allowing you to make multiple reprints of selected images at your own convenience while DBP retains the original copyright and permission to use photos for promotional purposes.
