Welcome, I'm Sam

Hi, friend!

I'm a natural light photographer based in Castle Rock, Colorado, Mesa, Arizona, and surrounding areas. My weakness are images that tell a story - your story. During your session, we can go anywhere, even your home. You love fishing? Let's go. Hiking? I'll grab my boots. Have a farm? Sounds like a dream. Staying cozy on your couch? Yes, please. Whatever it is, I want to tell your story & this time in your lives.

more about me

Wondering why there's no photos of children's faces?

I believe in protecting children's digital footprint in this day and age, especially as a family photographer posting content of kids that are not my own. I promise, you will still receive BOTH types of work in your galleries, however I will not be posting them on my end. During the booking process, feel free to ask for a full gallery to see more of what you'll get!

"Sam is absolutely wonderful! Professional, talented, flexible, creative and overall sweet and kind to work with. She has photographed many different sessions for myself and my family over the years - I will continue to use her and recommend her to others."

FAQ

Why do you not have images with a child's face shown? I want to see their expression

As a mother, I feel very strongly about protecting children as much as I can when it comes to an online presence. Although I only post faceless photos of children online, you will still receive images with your children's face in your gallery like normal! Ask for a full gallery at booking to see!

Are the travel expenses included in your packages or covered additionally?

All travel fees are included if located in the Denver or Phoenix area. If it is over 2 hours away, a custom quote will be given.

What if we want something more extreme for our session (hiking, camping, etc)?

Uhm, that sounds like a blast & I am beyond down for this. We can do pretty much anything you'd like to do for your session. Just ask!

We want to include our pet(s) into our session?

All family members are welcome! Please bring them! Just let me know ahead of time so we can coordinate correctly.

How long does it take to recieve the photos after my session and how will those be delivered?

I try my best to get you your photos as quickly as possible! Sneak peeks will be delivered within 1-2 business days and full session will be delivered no later than 4wks. I always try for ASAP, this could be as early as 2wks

What if I don't know what to wear?

As soon as you are all booked, I will send an access code to Style & Select with a style guide. I absolutely love helping with outfits and can hop on a FaceTime call if needed to go over it all!
