I am an on-location, natural light, modern, lifestyle, and portrait photographer with a focus on timeless portraits and a meaningful experience for my clients. I enjoy capturing candid moments. lifestyle photography is my favorite- capturing the love, the fun, the joy, and the emotions that make up a relationship.
Being in front of the camera can be so awkward for a lot of people, so I ask questions during my sessions to get people to feel comfortable and relax so they can just be natural with each other. Instead of posing and asking clients to smile, I make silly noises or get parents and children to tickle and play with each other, and ask couples how they met, these prompts make for genuine emotions that I get to capture!
I of course hope people love the images they see after the session, but I also hope they enjoy the experience. I’d hate for a couple or family to leave our session having felt awkward or uncomfortable the entire time. I want to be thought of as a friend and not some stranger you can’t wait to be done with.
My artwork is fun! I put a lot of thought into the logistics of the session, there’s planning and collaboration with the location, timing, and outfits for clients. It’s important to me that both my clients and myself are happy with the end result. The editing process is generally quick, I don’t do a lot to the original images- I try to keep things natural and real.
Sam spent the afternoon with me doing some photos for our website. They were phenomenal!
Love, love her work!!! She is an amazing woman and photographer. She is very open to suggestions and she is so patient.
This photographer has a great eye for detail and a wonderful person. Just let her know what you want and she will work with you.
Sam is AMAZING!!! Great quality pictures at a very affordable price. I've used her for ALL of my family photos and will continue to do so!!!

What I love about Samantha's photography is that every time I see one of her photos I think, "Wow, that's unique." She never fails to provide a distinctive view and perspective of her subjects. If you want the same ol' same ol' look elsewhere -if you want the "Wow" factor - call Sam. More...
Samantha has a way of capturing the beauty of the moment in each of her photos. Her photography style is classic, creative and unique. It will never go out of style!

I think Samantha has a special talent for bringing out special unique qualities that make her photography interesting as well as capturing the best of her subjects.
Sam did my sister engagement pictures! My sister doesnt have fb but she asked me to leave Sam a review. My sister was in love with her pictures! Thank you so much Samantha!
I've used Sam multiple times and she never disappoints! I love that she is willing to try any new suggestions. It is definitely a plus that she's naturally good with kids and my girls love her. :)

Samantha is absolutely wonderful! She has taken our maternity and newborn pictures and we will have her take countless more of our family. She captures every detail beautifully and is super sweet while she does it. We can't wait for her to take pictures for the next special time in our lives � More...
I loved my Beach family photos, the best part is that we didn't have to pose much, being our first time doing them we didn't know much what to do. But Sam just told us to relax and do our thing, to just enjoy it. It made it so much easier, especially for our kiddos that couldn't keep still since they wanted to play in the water! Honestly I didn't think we were going to get that many options but she exceeded my expectations, (I was going to be just happy with a couple good ones, if we were lucky! ) she sent me so many perfectly amazing shots that it is so difficult to pick favorites to print, so i think I may do all of them!!! Thank you so much Sam, you made it so much more especial, I'll treasure them forever... and I can't wait for our next time, I'm addicted now! � More...
