Hello there. Thank you for stopping by. I am so happy you are taking an interest in capturing some beautiful photographs of your family. I'd like to think that my style is a happy medium of capturing candid lifestyle moments while still creating great portraits that parents and grandparents will appreciate. Whether I'm shooting a petite studio session or an on location session for a large family I strive to balance the two concepts of lifestyle and portrait into a fun and effortless experience so that you are left with a variety of amazing images to choose from!
I believe that babies and children are perfect just the way they are. That is why I do not use crazy props or awkward posing. I like to keep things as minimal as possible with your child as the main subject. Trust me - they grow up fast, so do not miss the preciousness of them just being themselves. I generally let the youngest person of the family lead the session. If baby is not happy then no one is. I have acquired some pretty succesful manipluation techniques over the years in order to get little ones to cooperate and relax so we can produce the images that you will be happy with for years to come. Every image I show you will be carefully chosen and hand edited with the utmost care.
I strongly feel that one of the greatest joys of photography is the pleasure of sharing your photographs with others. That is why, in addition to your digital files, I sell archival prints that have professional color accuracy and will last for generations. I want you to be able to hold your memories in your hand and enjoy them on a daily basis. As an artist I feel that your portraits will serve as the most meaningful artwork you will have in your home. That is why I offer many options for showcasing your photographs. I want you, your family, and your friends to enjoy them in your home daily.
"Samantha did a great job capturing my sweet, sassy, 6yr old!!! Looking forward to working with her again!" - Amanda Magee
