I enjoy capturing candid moments. Lifestyle photography is where I thrive. Capturing the things you and your family love about each other and the different ways you have fun. So instead of a series of memorized poses and telling you when exactly to smile, I'd rather we go to the park and feed the ducks, or play a game of cuddle monster as you hold your littles tightly and remember these days, hug your spouse tight and spend a minute remembering what it's like to connect, let's include your fur babies too, explore a nature trail, roll around on the ground and just be you!

Don't be embarrassed about the mess and imperfections, that's what makes you and your family so unique. I guarantee my house is an absolute mess these days and I am a total goofball. I hope to help make you feel comfortable and think of me as your friend and not just some rando photographer you hired to capture your life's most precious season.

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.

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.

client testimonials

wedding experience starts at $2,300

i love witnessing the makings of a marriage. capturing the fun engaged season and being present for the excitement, the butterflies, the giggles, and the joy of marrying your best friend... this is why an engagement session is included in your wedding experience. i love photographing the in-between moments, the ones you won't notice on the wedding day because you're smiling at your beloved. i also appreciate capturing the carefully selected details. i make sure to capture every little detail and emotion because i know how hard you worked to orchestrate it all into this grand celebration of love!

i believe choosing a photographer is one of the most important things you'll do for your wedding celebration. preserving precious memories is why i do what i do. to continue the joy and love beyond just your wedding day, memories you can show your kids and grandkids, to hang on your walls, and put in an album to recall all the details, the friends + family, the colors, and most importantly the love and joy you felt on that day.

why hire a wedding photographer?

i know i'm partial, but hear me out! even if you choose someone else as your photographer. i believe photography is one of the most important investments you should make on your special day, here's why. as much as we try to hold onto memories, they fade. a photographer can help you by capturing the moments you want to freeze in time. there are many things you have to think about when planning a wedding, the venue, the dress, who's going to be in the wedding party, the photographer, the theme and colors, who to invite, the flowers, the list seems endless. but many of those things are just memories once it's all over. photographs are one of the items you'll get to keep and cherish for years after you've said "i do!" they're what you'll show your children and grandchildren, what you'll hang in your home, and look back on for years. have i convinced you yet? :)

what's included?

Lifestyle newborn sessions start at $800

I want to tell what it is that I love about capturing this special time so that you are fully aware and can know what to expect from me and our session. I love the details, the soft and squishy, the wisps of hair, the tiny toes, and their sleepy smiles. I love photographing these details. I also love photographing the connection and love that you share with this new family member. The way that baby cuddles in your arms and the prideful smile she puts on your face, a peaceful snooze on the couch or bed. The way baby brother or sister holds him or the gentle way your dog licks his feet.


lifestyle newborn sessions

All of these encounters are what this time is all about. If you prefer this to the traditional more posed newborn photography then I'm so glad you stopped by and I can't wait to hear from you!
