Appointments scheduled for Wednesday, Friday and Saturdays always Closed on Sunday


I want to say a huge THANK YOU to all my wonderful customers! My family will be moving this summer and it is too far away to keep my studio open here in Afton. I am in the process of closing, deciding what to keep and what I don't need to move with me to the next place. ;)
I have loved taking pictures for each and every one of you! You will forever be in my hearts! If you are scheduled with me, or have talked to me about pictures this summer, we are good. I look forward to taking your pictures.
Thank you again for all the love this community has shown me. I'm going to miss you guys.


East Union Prom people~ If you haven't turned in your prom order yet, there is still time! Bring it to the school office or drop it at my studio (via Callista at the Purple Cow) Thank you everyone!


To those thinking of booking senior pictures, You need to call and get on the schedlue fast! Dates are filling up so quickly. I have a couple weekend dates in August open, but September is now booked. October is going to go fast.


Prom photos are ready for delivery. I will take them to the school tomorrow. If you are picking up at the studio (or still owe 😉) I will be in touch soon.


East Union friends, it is not too late to get your prom orders in. Bring them to me at the studio, or send them to school. Thank you!


I had loads of fun taking pictures today at Afton's Ladies Day Out. (I'll be back next year!) ...AND Congratulations to Shirley Staver! She won the drawing for a FREE Mini session, including 5-7 digital images with printing rights. Thank you to everyone who stopped by for a picture, enjoyed some chocolate, and signed up for the drawing. If I took your picture, you can pick them up at the Kansas Street Deli & Purple Cow Antiques next week. See you then.


A HUGE shout out of thanks to Hot off the Press LLC's Ressa Nelson, for all your help today with making the buttons! I really enjoyed the morning with you my friend. (and thanks to the Boss, Cole for loaning me his star employee for the morning!)


A "Flannel and Frost" photo contest! Sutton Studios, along with Kansas Street Deli & Purple Cow Antiques, is hosting a photography contest~ I'm so excited! Bring your winter themed photo in the morning of November 25th (that is small business Saturday). Photos will be judged by votes, both online and in the shop. Winners will be announced on December 2nd. I can't wait to see your wonderful photography!


Prom photos are ordered and should be back by the end of the week. If you didn't get your order in to me, fear not~ You still have time. I have another order going in soon.

Our Story

I am an artist, turned photographer, who is coming back to my art roots. My family is making a big change. After 12 years in this community, my husband’s job is moving us to a new community. I will not be opening a photography studio right away. I will be focusing on my family, and my passion for art. Thank you to all my wonderful customers over the years. I have loved working with each and every one of you!
