"Samantha is such an amazing, talented, fun, professional photographer who puts her clients first and does everything to make sure you feel welcome and completely comfortable! My husband and I did an intimate couples session together and she made it so it wasn’t awkward at all for us and we had so much fun (even my husband who does NOT like having his pictures taken) lol! From the moment of walking into the studio Samantha made us feel like we were “at home” and went above and beyond always putting my husband and my needs/wants first . She had a personalized welcome board set up to welcome Clinton and I to the studio, offered us beverages as well as a private changing area and kept telling us if we needed a little break from photos just to let her know. Beyond all that, she sent us some sneak peek images THE SAME DAY of our shoot, and we absolutely love them.  5/5 stars for this wonderful lady!

"I was lucky enough to be picked for a free shoot out at Zippel Bay with my husband, daughter and pup and that included three free prints!
We had never met Samantha but we are so glad that we have now! She is so professional and kind. She has great prompts to get the best shots. She worked so well with a guy that doesn't really feel most comfortable in front of the lens, a 9 month old, an energetic wiener dog, and was a huge help to me as I tried to coordinate (but not match) our outfits! The photos are absolutely beautiful and we will cherish them forever. I was really impressed with her work; especially since we were just a "free shoot"... she didn't skimp on us at all and that shows a lot. We definitely recommend her and would hire her again. She also made a sweet video keepsake that was a nice extra touch."
