I'm Susana Toledo, professional portrait photographer and owner of Stars and Strobes Photography, based out of South Florida. My work and portfolio ranges from newborns to personal branding. In 2014, I photographed my first underwater maternity images and instantly fell in love with the magic that happens below the surface.
Maternity is my primary underwater photography but I also love making images underwater of teen birthday milestones, "mermaids" and even boudoir. The photos made and created from this I refer to as "Mermaid Dreams." I feel the movement and flow beneath the surface is completely magical - like mermaids - and I want my clients to feel part of the same magic when they see their images too, for generations to come.
