about me

Nice to meet you!

I'm Samantha.

I live a pretty life doing what I love surrounded by the things that I cherish most. I like to share all of the sunshine that I feel with others by being kind, giving, bubbly and creative. I believe you should always offer a beverage to anyone who enters your home, along with a warm welcome. As well as compliment strangers while you are out and about. My go to advice is pick the flower, pet the horse and sing your favorite song at karaoke even if it's terrible.

How I Got Started

Growing up I spent summers in Sarasota, FL and the rest of the year near Plant City, FL. I first picked up a camera in high school and haven't put it down since. After high school I attended Cosmetology School at Fashion Focus Hair Academy, in Sarasota, FL. After I graduated, I worked in a salon and quickly realized it wasn't for me. Always a free spirit, I decided to start my own business as a bridal hair and makeup artist while still photographing portraits and small weddings. Things started growing fast and I was blessed to be taken under the wing of a talented event planner in town and started building a unique business that offered the three most important services in the wedding industry, wedding photography, and bridal hair and makeup. Mastering my crafts has been the most fulfilling part of my life. I truly love every part of what I do, and I can't wait to wake up every day and live my dream life!
