Meet

Sam

When I became a mom 7 years ago, I realized that my children will only be this age today, but their smiles can last forever. As I documented our lives through photography, those moments turned into memories that I will cherish forever. I want to be able to give this priceless gift to each of my clients. 

A true born and raised Cochrane, Alberta girl, my favorite place to shoot is in the Rocky Mountains - I'm always up for an adventure! When I'm not shooting you can find me spending time with my fiance, co-founding an app called HOURTRADERZ, or chasing after my boys.

client praise

Our photos speak for themselves - Sam knocked it out of the park!

While making us feel completely at ease, she took world class photographs and we couldn’t be happier. We get comments on both our engagement and wedding photos on the regular and both of us end up raving about Sam and our experience.

Sam was our photographer at our wedding last month and she is AH-mazing. 

She came totally prepared for the day! I still can't believe how many photos she took and she even gave us a beautiful memory stick to view them. She has a great attitude and was super easy to work with. You won't regret booking her for any event you have!

Timeless Memories that are a genuine reflection of you

Creating lasting moments  through my lens is something that has evolved from a hobby, to a true passion over the years! As many sessions as I can with the Rocky Mountains as my backdrop! I shoot every single session based off the unique personalities in front of my camera, rather than "my style" or what I think the finished result should look like. I want you to be able to proudly hang your session photos on the wall of your home as a true representation of you, rather than just a "perfect shot".

Some of my personal favorites! Whatever season of life you're in or type of session we're shooting, my goal is always the same. That the images are a true reflection of that unique memory. Each session is YOU, captured through my lens.

For those who are up for an adventure, down with whatever, & undeniably drawn to the mountains.

I'm the photographer for you and I can't wait to capture timeless memories your season of life!
