ABOUT … “This is me…”

“Sometimes I pretend to be normal. But it gets boring. So I go back to being me.” – Ain Eineziz

Hi! I’m Sam.

I like being different. I was destined to be different. God created me not to be “normal” but to be me! Me is a child of The Almighty God, me is a wife, a mother, a sister, a friend and a photographer!

I don’t capture anything with my camera…. I witness. I witness God’s grace when a baby is born, God’s love when a couple gets married, purpose when I meet new families. I believe that every person I meet shapes my life in some way and every single experience have helped to change me into the person that I am today. I am Me!

I am constantly running a balancing act these days 🙂 A balancing act that is working hard at fulfilling my calling, running my own business, raising my 2 beautiful girls and spending time with my best friend! O and how glorious my days are! I enjoy being this crazy photo mom wife thingy….

Daily life is not just acting as photographer and living the on-call lifestyle, but also includes The Mom Taxi and trips to grocery store (O by the way, I hate the daily shopping list). Every now and then all babies are on hold, and I can be found on getaway weekend trips with my hubby and the girls (we love camping), living beautiful memories with my family and friends.

 

I love meeting new people! Every person has a story: little things that make them who they are, big things that make them who they don’t want to be and everything in between tells their story.

It’s your story that I am excited to tell in my work.

Some of the things I love about my job is that every single person I have met have been different. Everyone is uniquely their own being. Perfect. Exactly like our Creator envisioned them, and I get stopped in my tracks and just sit in the realisation and wonder of how many blue prints our God must have in His blue print room. Each one uniquely perfect!

Meeting my clients excite me and getting to know them allows me to create those very special images that is perfectly you. I hate posing, forced smiles and ugly light 😉 I am devoted to capture those little moments in between, show casing the authentic beauty of your relationships.

 

I am intrigued by emotion and are drawn to this. I love the unique opportunity I have to zoom in and capture real, once in a lifetime moments. As a photographer, I get an up close and personal perspective of relationships, a front row seat to full wedding days, and even the births of babies. It’s impossible not to truly feel the excitement and anticipation! I love capturing the laughter, the tears of joy, and every other bit of excitement entering a new chapter of life can bring.

Once all is said and done I enjoy a beautiful sunset with a cup of steaming coffee, reflecting on the fact that it’s my job to be witness to so many of life’s sweetest moments. Wow.

Only by the grace of God did I get so lucky and it will be such an honor to share in your story.
