My Story



My name is Susie Doerksen. 

I am a 21 year old Texan-born red-head, wife to a wonderful husband and a lover of all things nature and outdoors. I spent most of my growing up years on a farm and married into a farm family; a fair share of my life so far has been spent in combines, tractors, and trucks, so you can say I'm a bit of an outdoorsy Ag. girl! I've also always been drawn to the arts, sketching and watercolors are some of my favorite de-stressers. Photography for me is just another outlet to that artistic side and lets me get outdoors more often which is a win-win in my books!

I live in the beautiful province of Alberta, a place filled with wonders of nature and equally wonderful people, all calling to be photographed. I love to document special moments, people, and places in photographs; for as memories of old begin to fade, a photograph never will.


 I have always had a camera with me for as long as I can remember; I was the girl who wanted to capture every special moment on film so I could look back on it later and relish in the joy of the memory over and over. Over the years I eventually graduated from point-and-shoot camera’s and iPod photos to my first DSLR purchased with my hard earned tips at a local bakery. With this purchase came the desire to share my gift and passion with the world around me. I am a firm believer in God-given passions and talents and I believe He has instilled this strong desire in me to create beautiful and everlasting images of His wonderful creations (aka YOU!). This journey has had it’s share of bumps and dry spells but with 2019 came a new awakening of this passion and resolve; I dove into online courses, hours of research and became a member of a large photography community. What was formerly more of a hobby is now a dream of something much bigger. I am excited to see where God takes me on this journey!

I love to travel so take me anywhere for your sessions! Contact me with your ideas and goals and I will do my utmost to make them a reality. Much love and God bless!
