SL Hunter Photography | The Artist


Thanks for stopping by! I appreciate you taking a couple minutes out of your day to get to know me!



 After 5 years in the business of capturing everything from models and architecture to corporate portfolios and families, I realized that the heart and soul of my art, the sessions that made my heart sing were the reason I fell in love with photography in the first place. I wanted to focus my lens on the most precious and fleeting memories life has to offer.

In 2014 I made the decision to specialize exclusively in the ages and stages from maternity to the very first birthday, and two years later I expanded my clientele to include individualized portraits for children aged 18 months to 16 years. There is something about the 'newness' at every stage during a baby's first year that captivates me, motivates me, and leaves me humbled and in awe at every new life. Just as fascinating to me are the experiences and the passions that take a child from a baby full of curiosity to a child full of wonder to an adolescent brimming with potential and promise.  These beautiful moments, gone in an instant, challenge me to capture life in timeless ways that create tangible memories of the ones that make our hearts beat the hardest and the proudest.  I never take for granted each family's willingness and excitement to involve me in the most precious times of their lives.
