Susan Symonds, Photographer and Owner of Infinity Portrait Design a full-service boutique portrait studio dedicated to photographing the moments that matter.
After living here for 30+ years, I feel like a native New Englander! My father's family originally dates back to the 1650's in North Andover, MA so it's not that far of a stretch really! I basically left Rochester, NY and came to Boston to go to college in the 80's and I have never left! Being born and raised in Rochester (Kodak country) by a guy that worked for Eastman Kodak and an avid photographer gave me a special advantage! I have always known what I wanted to be when I grew up, yes, a photographer! Wide eyed, I graduated from Endicott College armed with a degree in Photography, a Canon camera and big plans... watch out world here I come!
Fast forward to today, our studio Infinity Portrait Design is a full-service boutique portrait studio dedicated to customer service and the concept of photographing your moments that matter. We have been nurturing & defining this personalized concept for years now! My daily inspirations come from the simplest of resources usually the purely intoxicating beauty of a child’s face and the loving arms of their parents holding them close. I have continued to study the Art & Science of photography in an ongoing effort to utilize the most current techniques & teachings of many PPA industry leaders and mentors. I will say that I do miss all those magical hours in the darkroom but I have honestly only traded them for countless intimate hours with my iMac fine tuning an image to send out for final printing! This is a must know point about me My Art is not complete until it is in printed form!
I have always loved what I do from film to Photoshop. My career has explored many faces, using both analog & digital mediums and has taken me on some fabulous adventures that have given me experiences that have shaped the woman I am today. I can honestly say that I have waited my whole career for the capabilities that we have today in the digital realm but I am reminded on a daily basis about those ever so basic rules "Expose for detail in the shadows and print for details in your highlights!" That being said I just can't wait to see what comes next in the ever-evolving art of photography!
