For someone unfamiliar with Suzanne Fiore Photography, how would you describe the company’s mission and core offerings?
Suzanne Fiore Photography’s mission is to use photography as a way to honor our family’s history, to celebrate our present, and to capture unique stories for our future. We offer a variety of ways in which to accomplish our mission and use old and new photographic processes that complement each client’s specific interests.
Tell us about Suzanne Fiore Photography. When did it start and how has it evolved since then?
I began considering photography as a business, here in NYC, in 2008, and my primary focus was always on families and children. I later studied photography at Photographic Center Northwest in Seattle, WA. where my love for the fine art of photography deepened. I have been honored to have my work exhibited at the PCNW Gallery in Seattle, at the Seattle Art Fair, and viewed in publications such as Time Out NY Kids, The New York Times, and Digital Photo Pro Magazine. I still work primarily as a portrait photographer, but I have added mixed media and alternative processes into my brand.
My background in music and theatre has found its way into my photographic work. You can see that influence specifically when I work with families to recreate photos of their ancestors. Going through people’s family archives and working with both digital photography and the wet plate collodion process are different ways in which I continue to support the mission of the business by tapping into our history, as well as the present, and to stay up to date as the future of photography is filled with new and exciting possibilities. Combining different photographic processes & art forms together inspires me to create a unique experience for my viewers and clients, which is truly what allows my business to continually evolve.
What are the most popular and newest services from Suzanne Fiore Photography?
The most popular service from Suzanne Fiore Photography is the “Day in the Life” session. When you invest in this session, I will spend a day with you and your family, capturing the everyday moments that occur. The goal with this service is for families to be able to look back at a day in their lives and have specific memories of what that period of time in their life entailed.
My newest services offer clients an opportunity to tap into their history. The “Recreated Family Photos” service is an opportunity for family members to search through their family archives, choose a photo they would like to replicate, and then play the roles of their ancestors in the photo they have chosen. This gives families a chance to relive moments of their ancestors’ life experiences.
In addition to revisiting history, Suzanne Fiore Photography also has a portable dark room and offers an option to participate in the Wet Plate Process. The Wet Plate Process was used in the 1800’s and creates one of a kind photographs on tin or glass.
What sets Suzanne Fiore Photography apart from other family photographers?
Suzanne Fiore Photography offers a wide variety of ways in which to capture a memory. We are also sensitive to the influence of the history of photography, ancestry, and are aware that the present moment becomes a part of history and a story yet to be told as soon as the image is captured.
What can parents expect from Suzanne Fiore Photography at the New York Baby Show?
Parents can expect to see a storybook that will feature a day in the life of one of our clients, matted prints, mini photo albums, and detailed information on each service that Suzanne Fiore Photography provides. They will also see examples of what a portrait looks like when captured using the wet plate process. And there will be giveaways! I’m looking forward to learning more about each family’s unique story and history.
