As a mom, I understand how stressful it can feel to prepare for family photos and my goal is to help you enjoy your session and walk away with beautiful images of you and your family. I want to give you images that capture the feelings of joy you have on your best day with each other.
I want to make your experience as stress-free as possible so you walk away feeling like you created memories instead of feeling like you were asking the kids to smile for an hour. Let me be the silly one behind the camera jumping up and down to keep the kids attention and keep things light so you can focus on having a fun photo session!
From your growing bump to your baby’s first birthday, so much changes in the first year of their life. Let me capture the joy of this first year of milestones with curated collections to fit your needs!
Custom Collections May Include: Pregnancy Announcement, Maternity, Newborn, 3 month, 6 month, 9 month, & 1 Year
Whether you're expecting your first, second or fourth babe, this is such a joy-filled and fleeting time in your life! Newborn sessions are my absolute favorite life milestone to capture. I take a lifestyle approach to my newborn sessions which take place in your home where you are most comfortable and where so many wonderful memories will be created with your family.
Whether you’re announcing the pregnancy of your first child or you’re a family of 6, I’m here for you! Let’s run through the grass or snuggle up in front of a warm glowy sunset! We will definitely capture some of those classic family portraits, but my family sessions are filled with snuggles, running around & more guidance to elicit real moments than perfect posing.
Reach out to book your session & I’ll send you information about my collections! We will pick a date and location for your session, I will send you my contract and invoice via Honeybook.
Once booking is complete, you will receive a welcome email from me including session details, a session preparation guide, style guide information and a quick questionnaire to help me get to know you and your family better!
After our session together, I will send a preview of your session typically within a few days. You can expect to receive your final gallery in 3-4 weeks!
Print your photos to enjoy for years to come!
"I used to be nervous getting pictures taken, especially now that we have three kiddos 4 years old and younger, but Sam makes it such a fun time for everyone! From playing Disney music to letting us run around in open fields and be goofy, and most importantly, letting the kids be kids, she brings out the best in our family in each and every photo."
- Gantz Family
"She is so real life, capturing moments of play, laughter, and natural interactions instead of those awkward poses! She is so calm and in control which I so appreciate because if you are anything like me, taking pictures can be anxiety provoking and stressful."
- Anderson Family
"We were drawn to her style of photography because she does a great job of capturing warmth, and natural light. When taking our photos Sam gave us great direction, yet made the photos look candid and natural, not posed."
- Wallin Family
