Sue Halliburton is the owner of Sierra Elegance Photography. She started in photography around 7th grade, using a tiny instamatic 110 camera, and developing the film at school in the darkroom. She saved her babysitting money and bought a Pentax K1000 35mm camera and started playing around with photography. As a creative artist and writer from a young age, she enjoyed the artistic aspect, but struggled with the technical side (and still does!), but persevered in her hobby. She had no intention of being a photographer as a career, but planned to be a veterinarian or graphic artist. A post high school job at a one hour photo lab turned into a position as a photographer in a one hour studio/lab by accident. She started taking professional seminars by industry leaders, and fell in love with portrait photography! She photographed children, families, glamour makeovers, couples, animals-- everything that came her way. She photographed her first wedding in 1989-- and after working from home before that time she opened a studio location in Clearlake, CA. She relocated with her husband and three children to northern Nevada in 1994, and ended up divorcing and stayed in Nevada instead of moving back to California. She remarried in 1996, and has been married to the love of her life ever since. She worked for a studio in Lake Tahoe for several years photographing hundreds of weddings before again opening her own business. Sierra Elegance Photography came about in 1998, and has built upon its success every year since. Sue was a two year president of the Professional Photographers of Nevada, and is a current member of Professional Photographers of America. She is pursuing her CPP designation-- Certified Professional Photographer. That is a very rigorous process through PPA which a very small percentage of photographers worldwide have completed. She passed the written exam on the first attempt, and is now gathering a very specific portfolio to submit in early 2014. She is constantly learning and seeking improvement in all aspects of her business, to bring you the highest quality photography available!
