Preparing for Your Portrait Session

I want you to feel comfortable and confident at your portrait session. Here are a few tips to help you prepare for your session:

1. Choose clothing that makes you feel great and reflects your personal style. 2. Think about the location and theme of your session, and choose outfits that will complement the setting, but not blend in. 3. Get plenty of rest the night before your session, and try to plan an easy day prior to our session. If you have any questions or concerns, don't hesitate to contact me.

Don't forget, part of our planning for your session, is outfit selection. You can always give me a call and we can discuss your options, or I can make shopping suggestions!

During Your Portrait Session

During your portrait session, our focus is on capturing the essence of who you are. We will guide you through the process, helping you feel comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera. We believe that the best portraits are those that capture genuine emotion and connection, so we'll encourage you to interact naturally with your surroundings and with the people you love. Our sessions are designed to be fun and enjoyable, so don't be afraid to laugh, dance, or be silly! We want to create images that truly reflect your personality and spirit.

After Your Portrait Session

After your portrait session, we will schedule a viewing appointment with you, where you can see your images and choose your favorites. We offer a variety of products and collections to showcase your images, including prints, albums, and wall art. Our goal is to create beautiful, timeless artwork that you'll cherish for years to come.


My name is Samantha

I fell in love with photography in High School while using my moms camera from her own High School days. While that camera may now be retired from duty, and I continue to evolve along with photographic standards, the fundamental knowledge of photography that I learned back then will always stay with me. I often look at that old film camera proudly displayed in my home and reflect on where I began, and how lucky I am to have made my way to where I am now.

Instead of finding peace while developing in a dark room, I now find my peace while editing in my office. The process may not be the same anymore, but creating a meaningful and beautiful image will always bring me the greatest satisfaction.
