Portraits In the Portrait Park
Susan Michal Portrait Studio is located in the heart of Mandarin on 2 acres of beautiful land with huge oak trees and many other natural settings that make great locations for portraits. There are many unique sets, lush gardens and picturesque spots available to make your portrait individual and unique. The long dirt lane that leads you to the studio is a favorite spot of Susan’s clients for both children and family portraits. Also among clients favorites are the antique trucks and the John Deer Tractor. This very unique and private setting is the perfect place to create beautiful art for your home. No other photographer in the area has this picture perfect setting available to them. Best of all you and your family are just steps away from restrooms and any other convenience that you may need during your session.
Portraits In the Studio
Susan Michal Portrait Studio has a fully equipped indoor studio for portraits that require this type of setting. The studio is cozy and comfortable. Susan has at her finger tips countless props such as antique chairs and other unique items that can change up the look of your portrait or add the perfect embellishment. This is the perfect setting for newborns, moms and babies or very young children. The studio is also where Susan creates her black and white relationship Family Portraits.
Black and White Portraits
Portraits in Black and White are a very popular choice. Black and white evokes a sentimental and intimate feeling that is all about relationships, innocence and personality. Black and white portraits are beautiful in both a formal style or a very candid style. Typically we will capture some of both during your session. This type of portrait looks great with any decor and is a timeless classic that you will enjoy for many years.
