Hello there, good to meet you...

Look at the stars; look how they shine for you…

Hi, so excited you stopped by. I'm Susy Toledo and celebrating life is BIG to me! It's exciting and I'm here to document your most cherished life's celebrations. 

From the preparation and arrival of the new little one in your family, the sitting-on-their-own milestone and of course, 1st birthday (And it really doesn't stop there, am I right?); they're only this little once and it all changes so fast. 

I started shooting in 2009, and the one thing I discovered is that I love being able to capture the details of life and our stories. Snuggles, whispers, hand-holding that happen naturally within your family, are my favorite. I may guide you in posing, but really the way you instintively get together, touch and are, is what will show YOU and YOUR STORY in these photos. The little details that make us smile, giggle and "awww" are the moments that we don't want to forget, right? I want you to have those moments, in your hands, forever. 

As for myself, I'm married to an awesome guy and I have two amazing sons. They're twins. Fraternal; and yes I'm sure they're fraternal. (Haha) They're my Tweedles and I struggled and fought through infertility for 5 years before I was blessed to become their mommy, with the help of IVF. My three guys have ignited my heart and soul forevermore. 

That fire in my heart from my own family is what fuels my desire and passion for making beautiful portraits of your tiny new baby and your family; celebrating the details of the life that is all yours.

Your baby becomes "my Star Baby" and the mommas become "my Star Momma". Every baby and family I am chosen to photograph get a special place in my heart. I love to see these Littles and "my families" grow. It really is such an honor to be a part of that history. I couldn't ask for a better job!

Celebrate their new little lives. Celebrate your family. Celebrate all the little details.


Kind Words

“Boy she did not disappoint, her personality and professionalism are out of this world. After the first maternity shoot she did my son first and second birthday shoots. After each session when I see the pictures I’m left speechless. I moved to North Carolina shortly after I tried a few photographers no one ever lived up to Susy’s standard. Since then I prefer making the trip every time to S.FL just for a session with her. She is so kind, patient and pleasant with my kids I can even imagine anyone else..”

“We did a newborn session with Susy from Stars and Strobes and had a wonderful experience! Susy was very friendly and also very professional. The session itself was great, everything was brought directly to us, (which is nice for parents of newborns) and Susy was amazing with our baby, who was only 8 days old at the time of the photoshoot. The props and the sets were perfect and the pictures came out better than we could have hoped for! I highly recommend Stars and Strobes and will definitely be reaching out”

“Susy is such an amazing photographer and person. She's captured so many of our family's milestones and blows us away with the images every time. She goes above and beyond to make our visions reality. So excited to continue to have her document our lives for years to come.”

“A couple of weeks ago I was fortunate enough to win a Boudoir Mini Session Giveaway contest hosted by Stars and Strobes Photography and McClain Makeup Artistry. Susy and Kirenia didn't make me feel any less special. Kirenia glammed me up so beautifully or should I say (I was beat to the GAWDS HUNTY) and Susy made me feel so comfortable, sexy, glamorous, and classy during the entire session. Both ladies were very professional and yet created a nice chill and fun vibe! Susy my photos turned out AHHHHMAZING..!”

“Susy is THE BEST! She did both our engagement & wedding photos and I honestly can say my wife and I are speechless. She was able to capture so many special moments that are here and gone in an instant, yet she somehow was always in the right position to get those shots. She is able to bring out the best in the surroundings and is very well prepared but when the weather is not cooperating she is still able to make the best of the situation being able to improvise on the fly and still get a killer shot!!!”

“We have loved every shoot we’ve done. At least 2 a year for the past 5 years!”

“This was one of the best experience I have experienced in my pregnancy!
Susy was amazing, patience, and so artistic!!
Great service overall”
