Lifestyle Portraits

I solemnly swear to be adventurous, to serve you, and to be your lifelong friend.

Regardless of the season that you're in, and whether your babies are big, small or furry, this time in your life deserves to be captured.

I want to serve you with so much more than just good photos for you to look at. I want to serve you with an experience of a lifetime, to be able to have fun at your session, to be carefree, and to capture your memories in the most authentic, natural way possible.

What can I say about Samantha except that she is amazing!! She was super sweet and quick at responding right off the bat, and took time to know a little about my family before our session. The weather turned stormy the day of our session and she was so flexible with moving locations to accomodate us. My children adored Sam and still asks when we'll have her over for dinner! We love our photos and look forward to booking our annual photos with Sam next summer!

"She is so professional and kind. She has greats prompts to get the best shots. She worked so well with a guy that doesn't really feel comfortable in front of a camera, a 9-month old, and an energetic wiener dog. She was a huge help to me as I tried to coordinate our outfits."

If you're down for an adventure, don't mind acting silly, and being carefree  - I think we're going to be a perfect fit! 

My lifestyle families and couples spend an average of $189 for their session.
