Nice to meet you!

I'm Samantha.

Nice to meet you!

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.

My promise to you.

I promise to create a warm and familiar environment for you and your loved ones, from the moment we exchange our first introductions until your final gallery has been delivered. Your photography experience with me includes laughing, some slow dancing and a lot of baby shark singing. We may even do some light jogging through the sand (if you’re up for it) or have a quick dip in the ocean with all of our clothes on (for the bravest of hearts only). Wherever our session takes us, just know that it will be a safe place to be in love, or to hold your family close. I promise to deliver the true essence of who you are in a physical form that you will be able to hold in your hands and revisit whenever you need a reminder of what life Is truly about. 

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!
