I'm Sam. The thunderstorms brought me here.

No, but really.


Storm Chasing

My love of thunderstorms, especially tornados, is what turned me into a photographer. My favorite season is storm season, and I'm not afraid to drive head-first into a tornado warning. 


Hablo español

No soy un hablante nativa, pero estoy emocionada de ayudarte con tus fotos y tus días especiales en inglés y español.



The American West, glitter and glam and anything that dazzles, the deep feelings that make us human, antiques, the magic of nature, Kansas, laughter and big smiles, making others feel seen.


Always Learning

I'm curious about almost everything, so I'm sure we have interests in common. Some of my favorite things are linguistics, baseball, garment construction, aviation, any and all science, and history.

The Kansas/Missouri border is my home,  and my eyes have been glued to stormy skies since the moment I  first looked up.

Before dreaming Stingray Photo Co. into reality, I received my degree in English and Education. I've spent the last several years teaching students from across the globe how to become confident readers and conversationalists in the English language.


I find myself using my teaching experience to  improve my clients' experiences every single day. 

Adapting for a nervous or excitable little one?  Managing all the diverse personalities for family pictures at your wedding? Helping you feel your best self in front of a big camera? I've got you. I'm a professional at making people feel at ease, and surprises don't scare me.

Can't wait to say "howdy" in person!

xoxo Sam
