About this pro

Expect to be wowed!  We are all about customer service and client experience.  From beginning to end, our goal is to make you beyond pleased from the moment you look at your reflection in the mirror after your hair and makeup to the very end when we are professionally installing your chosen wall art pieces.  We are all about documenting the real you: candid, raw, and personality through and through.  However you want to be catpured is how we want to make it happen. 

We are print and product enthusiasts.  Photos are meant to be oogled and oggled at - whether in a frame on the counter, in an album, or on an exquisite acryllic hanging on the wall your photos are meant to be art works... and our labs will make them look even better with the highest quality and absolute picture perfect products. 

Do you remember when you were younger looking at photos of your parents, their parents, their family, and then you when you came into the picture (no pun intended)?  

How are we supposed to do that when photos are only taken on cell phones and a little more often on digital cameras?  

Sure we dig them out every once in a while, and we recall one or two of them - but the moments are lost in a quick-click system and super-scroll filing.  

I want my daughter to have tangible photos to hold in her hand.  I want the same for you and yours for generations to come. 

I've worked with clients whom have had the absolute worst happen to them from house fires to deaths.  And they know the value of a photo.  I want to share that value to others.  

When I was a teenager, at the brink of the digital age, all of our family photos were lost when the family computer failed.  That can't be the story of our age.  Photos can be taken digitally but should be hung, or albumed, or filed physically - so you can touch them, hold them, feel them, and read their story as if you were right there.

    She’s amazing at her craft. She makes you feel comfortable during your session, light hearted even. She’s flexible with time and payments. Can’t wait todo more with her.

  • Mike S

    Sam was able to capture some amazing poses and candid shots while directing the shoot. The time and care she put into the editing really shows and her photos turned out beautiful! The extras like having hair and makeup as well as getting some really unique shits with the drone were all added bonuses that made the shoot a special experience. It was definitely a full service photo shoot!

  • Amy Mikeska

    First, our pictures turned out so beautifully! She was professional and creative. It takes patience to work with a family, including 2 young kids, who are definitely not modesl. She was helpful in the selection process, the outfits, found a beautiful and unique location. I look forward to working with her again.

  • Andi ottmann

    Quite simply I will use Sam for all my photography needs. She adapts every shoot into a memorable experience that produces meaningful photos (my favorite part... the reveal!) She listens, is super patient and captures the true heart of the people in the session.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I am a self taught photographer with over 15 years amatuer and pro experience.  I am always a student, always evolving, and will always seek how what speaks to me so my work is always true to my view and something I love.  


Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

All investments packages and session fees include Hair and Makeup for one, a Drone Photography session, photographer's time, meetings, appointments, and respectable travel. 


How did you get started in this business?

Honestly, I was grounded one day when I was a teenager and my aunt gave me a photographer how-to book.  I still remember some tips I read in that book and I still use some of them.  

Also... I can't draw and my painting would never go for anything in a gallery.


What types of customers have you worked with?

We have worked in all fields and genres to include single portraiture, headshots and business branding, family, newborns, children, couples, weddings, engagements, inventory and product, a little bit of modeling, and most recently a tad bit of real estate.  


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Any family session between momma and babies just melts my heart.  Now that I am a mom it warms me to no end.  And because I know the realities of the world I know my job is of the utmost importance in capturing those real, candid, raw moments between momma and child to document it for generations to come.  


What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

You want to be treated by any photographer like you are a valued client.  You make the business.  Don't ever work with anyone whom doesn't treat you like you want to be treated as a client. 


What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

Look at their portfolio.  Do you love it?  Do you connect to it?  Does it speak to you?  Do they capture the images you want to see yourself in? 

Yes?  spend the money. Make it happen. Value their work and let them know you do.

Is it only so-so?   That's okay, there are more photographers out there, look for the perfect one for you.  One photographer's art is so-so for one client but is perfect for another.
