Susan McLean Photography Blog bio picture

    Thank you for visiting my site! My name is Susan but some people know me as Sue. I’m a wife and mom of 2 and I love photography - always have. My love turned into an obsession after my second baby was born. I wanted to learn more about photography so that I could take pictures of my kids funny faces, or big moments and hang them on the wall, and so my obsession has turned into my full time job.

    This blog is where you will see my latest work as well as pictures from my personal life. If you like what you see, contact me and we can set up a time to create some memories for you and your family.

    Be sure to check back regularly! :)

Project 365

I started a personal project a couple weeks ago and the project is to take a picture of my kids everyday for 365 days in a row.  I started the project on July 14th and I already missed 2 days… oops.  Now that I’ve proven to myself that I’m not perfect (wait, what…?) I’m gonna slowly exhale and let it be what it is – a personal project.  I’m gonna miss a day (or 3) here and there and it’s ok.  The reason for this project and my ultimate goal is to see how much my kids change and grow in the next year.  I’ve been taking less and less pictures of them in the last little while and hopefully this will help me get back to the reason why I started my photography obsession.

Each day I’ve been taking no more than 2 pictures of them but yesterday I took a couple more because they looked so cute with their new haircuts.

I also asked them what their most favourite part of summer is so far and this is what they said:

Julia: Spending the whole summer with you.  (ok, seriously.  I melt)

Ethan: That we were able to go camping and do all of the fun stuff at the campground.

I’ll post more from this project as the year rolls on and you can see how much they change with me!:) Keep checking back!
