photographer for the wild and the free

I'm Sam. Kansas City-based photographer and lover of all things moody, dreamy, and fun.

My grandmother once said, "Samantha, I think you just love absolutely everyone and everything." I think she was spot-on . 

We live in an incredible world filled with inspiring people. And I happen to be lucky enough to photograph  them.  

No matter the occasion, I am comfortable and confident to capture the special memories you're wanting to create through the art and science of photography. 

Senior portraits at an active volcano? Dreamy wedding photos? Or something else? Let's do it.
