Let’s talk about hair: How have you done your hair during labor? • My first baby, my hair was short and I left it down. Second baby, I did an Elsa braid, third, I did a messy bun, and fourth, curled and down. My favorite was probably the Elsa braid. ❄️ • #hair #birthsession #birthphotography #arizonabirthphotographer #mesabirthphotographer #birthstory #hospitalpic
I’ve never shot a birth in Arizona before, but when I do, I’m willing to bet it will look a lot like this. • Birth is universal. It doesn’t care whether you’re rich or poor, big or small, black or white, liberal or conservative. In a world where everyone is screaming, “listen to me! I’m right! They’re wrong!” birth stands. Unchanged, and unchangeable. • Children still arrive the same way they have since the beginning of time: created, grown, and carried in the womb of their mothers. It’s a beautiful gift and privilege, and it’s worth remembering forever. . . #arizonabirthphotographer #birthphotographer #birthphotlgraphy #birthstory #birthsession #naturalchildbirth #empowered #motherhood #powerful

One of the items I added to my arsenal was a flash and I cannot WAIT to try it out at my next birth! Say goodbye to graininess and yucky, yellow photos! This flash is a game-changer (of course, if the flash is distracting, I can put it away). • P.S. there are only 3 days left to register for my shooting in manual workshop on Saturday and there’s a good chance there won’t be another one of these for a little while, so DON’T MISS IT.

Cheese!!!! 😬 Thought I’d reintroduce myself! My name is Susan Stange and I’m the photographer behind the camera! Get ready for some bullet points with crucial information about me: •I love Peach Rings 🍑 •I didn’t tweeze my eyebrows until about a year ago, didn’t realize that the product I had been using for three years was actually a type of foundation, and wash my hair once a week as a rule. •I started out as a blogger, writing up tutorials for various home decor projects and sewing my own clothes, even owned my own Etsy shop for a while 👗 •I officially became a licensed photographer in June of 2018 •I once collaborated with the incredible @amandaconleyphoto and @_ladyneverland_ for a mermaid photo shoot 🧜♀️ •I birthed 3 of 4 babies unmedicated, but with the help of Pitocin (not sure what to call that 🤷🏼♀️) •I LOVE learning and trying new things Now you know a little more about me! Thanks for being here. Now, tell me something about yourself. Tell meeeee... what characteristic or trait do you value most in yourself or in others?
Here we go again! If you missed the last workshop, here’s your next chance! Saturday, January 11 (next week) from 10AM-1PM I’m doing another Shooting in Manual workshop.

HAPPY NEW YEAR! 🎆🎊 From me and @awstange anyway. 😅 Thank you for all the support you’ve given me this year as a friend, follower, client, or all of the above! Your support means a lot to me. In fact, if it weren’t for you, I wouldn’t be where I am today. So give yourself a pat on the back and have a very happy 2020! You’ve earned it! @kidsaretheworst #reallife
About 1 hour away from midnight and I have just enough time to post the remainder of my #susanstange2019review Days 18, 19, 20, and 21. . BIRTH + FRESH 48 | RYDER @mckenzie.nelson and I have been friends for about 6 years and I am so grateful I got to be with her as she birthed her third child. With an epidural that didn’t really work and a broken tailbone, Mckenzie is an inspiration and an example of not complaining when things get tough. Thank you for everything, Mckenzie! . BIRTH | HUDSON I just BARELY made it in time to capture @ashbridgewater.jpg birth her baby boy, which is just a testament to me that it is incredibly important to take my clients seriously when they say they deliver quickly. If I hadn’t immediately headed out my door and literally run into the birthing center, bypassing the empty front desk (because it was 3 AM), I would have missed it. #alwaysrun . . NEWBORN | NIXXON I was SO nervous for this session. My collection of newborn photography props are limited, so running around trying to gather things up proved for a bit of a stressful morning, BUT! I was able to find the wrap I needed and feel very happy with how this session went. . . #birth #birthphotographer #newborn #newbornphotographer #utahnewbornphotographer #utahbirthphotographer #birthsession #fresh48 #fresh48session #fresh48photographer #utahfresh48photographer #phoenixbirthphotographer #arizonabirthphotographer
