Greetings! My name is Susannah Brown. I'm a professional photographer, arts educator, and photo organizer. Photography is my first love. I found it amazing how powerfully a photo can tell a story, capture a moment in time or bring back a cherished memory. My adventures in the photo world started when I was young. At 15 I convinced my high school to do an independent study in photography. I learned all about film, shutter speeds, F-stops, and the darkroom. But what I loved most was having finished prints that documented my family, friends and captured the beautiful moments I could only communicate through a photograph.
Over the past decade, I've spent my time as an arts educator at several prominent museums in New York and Washington, D.C. I love helping people learn about art and photography and showing them new ways to curate their treasured photos and memories. I've picked up new skills along the way, and have found the archiving and photo-editing work is a perfect fit with photo organizing. Parents are busy and there are more family photos and videos today than ever before. Which means the photos are often forgotten on computers (or phones) or in the cloud and the intended baby book never gets made. I love taking a jumble of photos and sorting it into a beautiful collection. Then presenting a busy parent (and child) with a book of baby's first year or other family events.
Modern technology allows us to record everything, but that leads to the modern problem of having to sort all these files. And the technology for this is always changing. This makes it very difficult to keep up with the latest and best techniques and resources. I often hear that people love taking pictures on their phones, but don’t know what to do with the thousands of photos. Or that they’d like to have their old family albums accessible online but they feel overwhelmed by the ever-changing digital landscape. I reassure them that it doesn't have to be intimidating, and show them how to stay on top of their family photos, children's artwork, and other important memorabilia.
The power of being a photo organizer means I can help you rediscover your neglected photos and memories.
