my name is sammy...

I'm a KC based couples & brand photographer.

I am inspired by feelings.

As someone who is wildly empathetic, the root of my photos starts from the feelings of the people I am capturing.

Whether that be happiness, sadness, fierceness - I want to bring it to life and tell your story exactly how it is -

RAW, REAL, HONEST. 

A little about me /

hello, it's so nice to meet you!

what inspires me

My approach is different from most, I classify it as a documentary style. There will be no stiff prom poses here, but I approach each session with the intention to capture my subjects exactly as they are. Don't worry I will give you guidance and prompts, but I like to allow moments to breathe in order to capture the stories that are there to be told. If you highly value photographs, are madly in love or in love with what you do, want timeless and documentary style photos, then I think we will be the perfect match!

- your story is unique

I'm a Kansas girl who loves to travel. Married to my high school sweetheart and mom to the cutest kids,
Levi, Sawyer, & Rocky! 

When I am not capturing memories, you can usually find me working out, playing with my kids, or jamming out to some 90's band. But, I also LOVE to travel, and I would jet out of town in a heartbeat if I got the chance! Taking adventures is something that truly sets my soul on fire.

I want to build a genuine relationship with each and every person that I get to document and tell the truest version of your story. I believe every story deserves to be told and I would be honored to get the chance to document yours.
