more about me...

Hi there! I’m Samantha. I’m a wife, the mom of three handsome little boys and a beautiful little girl, a former educator of middle school students, and a published portrait photographer. I’m a lover of family time, all things purple, iced vanilla lattes, reading for pleasure, an occasional yoga class, and a relaxing night at home. I’m patient, creative, hard-working, and very much a perfectionist!

Absolutely FABULOUS!! Samantha is very professional, sweet, and really brought out the best looks in my children!!  Very talented young woman!


They look FANTASTIC!!!! Truly can’t thank you enough! They are just beyond awesome and we so very much appreciate the time you spent with us on the day, the rapid turnaround time on the editing, and the truly spectacular results! We’re both *just* delighted. Thank you thank you thank you!

Samantha did pictures for my entire family (including 7 kids) and they were all perfect.  She was efficient and worked well with us the entire time.  She made sure we got every picture we wanted.  I'd recommend her a million times!

- Danielle

WOW!!!!!!  These pictures are AMAZING! I was crying looking through them!!! Thank you soo much for capturing my daughters beauty and her smile. I was looking through the pictures, and I have to say, she has a genuine smile on her face and that just filled my heart.
