Hi friends! My name is Samantha, but you can go ahead and call me Sam. I am a Chicago based lifestyle + food photographer ( + always willing to travel to work with new brands outside the Chicago market ). When I am not working I am usually at the farmer's market gathering items to make dinner and pair with some wine, taking a walk, or volunteering at my mom's cat shelter.
I am inspired by little moments and all things natural. I began my photographers journey as a way to help younger women feel more confident in themselves for who they are at the most natural state. Celebrating who you are is super important, and if I can help be part of the process by helping someone feel joy for who they are, I have done my job. Since my journey started, I have evolved my brand to work with lifestyle brands + food as well, yet keeping the theme of natural.
The brands I photograph and write for all have something in common, sustainability. Anything from sustainable fashion to sustainable wine. I am extremely passionate about working with brands that take pride in making something wonderful while also caring for the planet.
