I believe in love at first sight. I believe in soul mates and twin flames. Most of all, I believe that every love story deserves to be told. Love is hard but it is also beautiful and passionate. It is so inspiring and drives us all to live life to the fullest. That - that right there. Being driven to live life to the fullest, is why I do what I do. Capturing the authentic, passionate love between two humans inspires me. Photos are how we pass down our memories for generations. It's how you are going to tell your grandchildren about your epic love story. I want to be a part of that. 

I believe in love stories.

My Beliefs 

MY STORY

Since a young age, I have been a story teller. You can ask my family - I would tell stories about my day and act it all out at the dinner table. To this day, I tell very long winded stories. It's a part of who I am. As a part of this, I have adopted photography into my life as a form of story telling. When I was younger I would walk to a little beach near my house that we called "sandy beach" and take pictures of anything that caught my eye. If my mom didn't let me take her "good" camera that I learned later in life is not so "good," I would use my iPod or cell phone. When I decided that I wanted to pursue photography as my career, I was terrified. I was so scared of what people would think about me. My best friend and my boyfriend are also photographers - everyone would think that I was hoping on the bandwagon and doing it to fit in with them. But the reality was that not a single soul cared that this was what I wanted to do or that this was what was going to make me the happiest version of myself. 
If you are on my website, it is because you are looking for a photographer who is passionate about what they are doing. A photographer who wants you to feel like the best version of yourself. A photographer who will want to be a part of your life after your session. A photographer turned friend.

About your photographer

Okay, okay. I'll spill the tea and stop being sappy... My name is Samantha but please, call me Sami. Yes, spelled with an "i" - I know its weird but I like it that way! I am a 20 year old photographer based in little ole Rhode Island. I'm livin'  the DREAM getting to photograph some absolutely amazing humans all while working a super cool full time job at a physical therapy clinic with some more amazing humans. I have 2 doggos, Rooster and Rollo, and a kitty, Nose (AKA NoseGang). My favorite animals are cows and otters and my favorite color is yellow!! I went to school for 2 years for medical science degrees (switched my major a few times) but after COVID hit and everything went remote, I decided to really focus on my photography with hopes to one day pursue photography full time #collegedropout - one day I'll go back for something like business or marketing but right now, I don't think it's in the cards (sorry Gram). I love tacos, Birria tacos to be more specific. I call them "dippy tacos" - that's the scientific name. OH and I have a dinosaur tattoo on my ankle. He is a brachiosaurus and his name is Lorenzo. 

If you love moo moos, dippy tacos, and cool tattoos like I do, I can tell ya right now, we are going to be BESTIES!!
