I am a photography loving, book addicted, caffeine fueled, devout mother and nerd extremist. I am 33 years old currently and growing up as an art obsessed child I first started photography at the age of 15. I have three kids of my own and I'm currently engaged, about to add three more bonus kids! So my heart and home are both full and I'm living for it. I love bringing games and play to my work. I'm a big hearted kid at the core of it all and love to capture those moments we all almost miss. I specialize in weddings and families, but do love when I get to squeeze in lifestyle or adventure sessions. 

If you can't tell, I like to have fun, but I do have a buckled down side too. I adore this job and take it very seriously. I strive to make our costumers walk away feeling like the portraits themselves were a great memory. I've met so many friends through my career and always have a smile to greet you!

I am a professional, but I'm still friendly enough to help you ease your nerves, even if it's by getting you to laugh at/with me. In other words I'm not stuffy, I feel strive and honestly can't help feeling like a old friend. If your looking for someone to help put you at ease and sincerely care about your special moment, I'll be looking forward to your message. 


Thank you again for considering us,

Samantha McCann
