- My favorite quote is by Sylvia Plath:

 

I felt my lungs inflate with the onrush of scenery -

I thought, 'This is what it is to be happy.'

I love traveling, meeting new people and making new friends.

I can't wait to hear from you!

xoxo, Samantha

Testimonials

Samantha is an exceptional photographer - she is wonderful to get along with, flexible, very talented and sweet with wild kids, accommodating to everyone (even in a large group) - and produces just gorgeous professional photos. Our whole family absolutely loved working with her, and we all adore the results - and highly recommend her!

- Katherine Hansen, Sunriver Family Photos

Samantha is so much fun to use as a photographer for any sort of thing! She did a maternity shoot for my husband and I and was willing to take us all over the place with beautiful mountains views and the photos turned out better than either of us could’ve envisioned. Not only does she photograph so well, you can feel that it’s truly enjoyable for her to take part in.
When our baby was born she did our new born photo shoot with us in our home and not only was it enjoyable, but the photos - yet again turned out wonderfully. Having someone capture those precious moments for us was so sweet and we will get to cherish the photos forever. Samantha has a way of making a photo shoot fun, easy, and memorable. I’m certain we will keep using her for many more events in life down the road.
