AKA - Sam, Sammie, Sammie Jean, the photographer, the one with the camera, mom, ma, momma, mommy, hey you, etc... I answer to pretty much anything at this point! I am a mom of two wonderfully crazy kids and two adorably obnoxious fluff balls. I'm married to my high school sweetheart, and somehow I am lucky enough to say that I am a photographer. I am a lover of all things Harry Potter (and a Ravenclaw), I'm a Chipotle addict, and an eternal optimist. I'm sarcastic and loud and swear way too much for my own good. My favorite place on the face of the planet is my house, specifically the inside of my house. Contrary to my loud and energetic personality I am extremely introverted and will pick staying at home cuddled up on the couch over going out any day!

"Sammie is AMAZING!! Our pictures are absolutely incredible. She was able to capture all of those special moments throughout the day.
I honestly could not have asked for more perfect wedding pictures. She knows exactly what will make for a great photo. We felt so comfortable while getting our photos. I am so excited to see the rest of them!"

"Sammie has captured the most important moments of my life. My now 7 year olds first photos, our family photos, our maternity photos, our newborn photos, and my courthouse wedding ceremony and also will photograph my large wedding as well. I can't say enough. Always so patient, always works so well with my kids and my picture hating husband. And not to mention captures the best moments of my life in the best way possible. I couldn't recommend someone more than I recommend her."

"Thank you Samantha for capturing one of the most important days of our life’s. I L O V E our pictures. It really shows how much quality and time was taken in. We had Sam photograph our wedding from sunrise to sunset and she was the most sweet and amazing person to work with. If any future bride is looking for a photographer look no further."

"If you're looking for a photographer, look no further because Samantha is the best! She is super friendly and down to earth and she's easy to become instant friends with. She shot my wedding and every picture is beautiful (the silhouette photo still gets me every time). Friends and family couldn't stop saying how nice she is and how easy she is to work with. Not only that, she showed up early! Looking forward to more photo sessions with her in the future!"

"She photographed our wedding at Starved Rock State Park. The pictures were beautiful, reasonably-priced for high quality work. Clear pricing for certain amount of hours, no hidden fees. She is friendly and makes you feel like you can go about your day, but still managed to take lots of great pictures without it feeling like you've done nothing but takes pictures all day!"
