Colorado Family Photographer

Here to capture the “wall-worthy” portraits & real moments.

Hey there! I’m Sam- your Colorado Family Photographer.

I grew up in a big family, the oldest of four kids. I have two younger brothers, and a younger sister (the baby of the family). Growing up our house was always full of professional portraits, and although as a kid I didn’t enjoy the dressing up and going to take photos, I am so glad that we have SO many pictures of us as we grew up. Now, as a photographer, I’m able to take my previous experience as a child who wasn’t a fan of the whole deal to make sure that families have fun and get the photos that are so important. I understand the stress and chaos that can occur. I’m here to help figure out outfits, make sure everyone’s needs are met, and curate an enjoyable experience while still making sure you get those must-have memories.

My Promises To You As Your Family Photographer:

  • I will provide location options personally curated for you and your family, considering accessibility needs and what you want for your photos.
  • I will assist in curating outfits that will allow you and your family members to be comfortable, cohesive, and fit your vision.
  • I will discuss activities for your session with you. I will help create a fun atmosphere for everyone and allow for real moments to happen, and capture the must-have smiling portraits.
  • I will go with the flow during your session, allowing for kids to be kids and make sure your family is comfortable and enjoying themselves.
  • I will deliver “sneak peaks” within 24 hours, and your proofing gallery within 2 weeks. You get to pick your favorites- because you know your family better than me.
  • I will flawlessly edit your images and deliver them through an online gallery (perfect to share with friends and family).

What Previous Families Have To Say

Absolute Gem

We loved our mini session at RMNP with Sam. She was so warm and personable from the time we met that we were all put at ease and had the best session. Absolute gem. If you need family pictures, engagement photos, any photos this is your girl!

Even My Husband Had A Good Time

Samantha made our entire experience fun! She’s always up for an adventure and has incredible talent. She was quick to respond to emails, put my kiddos at ease, and even my husband had a good time (never happened before!) I highly recommend her and have already sent her contact to friends. I can’t wait to get our beautiful pictures on our walls!

We hope to book her again in the future.

Sam did family photos for us in our backyard and we love them! She was so kind and a joy to work with. She even managed to capture cute moments of my toddler boys who are never still. We hope to book her again in the future. Thank you, Sam!

Sam was great to work with! 10/10 recommend an adventure session with her!

We really enjoyed working with Sam. She didn’t hesitate to travel to Arches National Park for our session, and she was able to capture some special memories for our family. She was flexible, and she was fearless! She is not afraid to hike and climb to get “the shot,” and this allowed her to get some amazing shots of our family at Arches!
Sam was quick to deliver the proof gallery, then very patient with me while I made my final selections, then quick to deliver the final gallery.
