Susan got her first camera as a child. She has been obsessed with capturing life on film. Her mind’s eye sees the world as photographs, cropping out the extraneous and capturing the beautiful. "As the digital age emerged, photography became more exciting, seeing immediately on screen what I see so clearly in my mind. People think that with cameras now anyone can take a beautiful picture, but it’s the composition that is important. It is about capturing a child's fleeting smile, a wave hitting the shore, a bird in mid flight or the wonder of the ever changing colors of a sunset...to be cherished, remembered and saved for posterity." ~ Susan La Bella
Her work has been on display at the New York Design Center in Manhattan, featured in the Burlington County Times and one of her photographs of the Pantheon in Rome recently won a prize in the Lenses On Europe contest sponsored by Nada's Italy Tours.
