about the photographer

My name is Samantha and I don't just take photographs, I capture moments.  I capture smiles, laughter, silliness, genuine emotions with a focus on love.  Whether I am taking photos of a couple who are engaged to be married, their wedding, a family, children, or even pets, I am driven by the love that is in front of me.  

All this gushy stuff about love can sound pretty serious, but my sessions are full of laughter and fun.  Each session is an adventure and a time to let go and just be happy.

Being behind my camera is a joy, letting it lead the way while I view the world through it's lenses.  I feel so lucky to get to do this because I find so much joy in capturing all the greatness around me.  

I hope to continue to grow as a photographer and as an artist, while stopping time for these moments so that you can treasure them forever.

I am a natural light photographer, which means I photograph mostly outdoors and on location, as well as some indoors where I can seek out the light that is coming in.

I am not only a photographer, but a wife, a momma, a daughter and a sister.  I am also a lover of all things animal, art and nature.  Spending time outdoors is a wonderful feeling, even in the Oregon rain.  Painting, drawing, crafting, camping, volunteering and being with my family are a few of my favorite things.

Thank you for taking the time to learn a little about me, I hope we get to meet soon!
