Marina Family Photographer

My photographic art is an extension of who I am as an individual; wife, mama, and photographer. I full heartedly understand the chaos family life can be, but I also greatly understanding the beauty, intense love, and intimacy held within that chaos. I photograph with the purpose of capturing your family as you are now. In every season, every ebb and flow. Photographs will always be a way back to these fleeting moments.

Monterey County’s coastline and valleys are effortlessly timeless. There are few, if any, coastlines and valleys that rival the seascape beauty between Big Sur and Steinbeck's Country. As a Marina family photographer, my focus is on photographing you and those you love against the captivating backdrops of Monterey County.

"I would give 100 star review if it was a option. Samantha responded to my inquiry immediately, she was so thoughtful and professional. She dealt with a family of rambunctious children and I thought it would be impossible to get a good picture with the kids but she nailed it and gave me a couple of wonderful photos!!! I’m so happy and would highly recommend her if anyone needs family photos."
