About Me

New Zealand and beyond.

I'm Sam (Samantha). I am a natural story teller who loves love. A camera has never been far from my hands in life because it quite simply makes me incredibly happy to collect epic memories! The power of an image is nothing short of magic.

As well as a camera, I also can't seem to live without music, Pinot Noir, cheese, the slightly large indoor jungle I've cultivated (over 100 plants) and Mila and Louis my two gorgeous Toyger cats (yes they have their own insta). I've lived in Australia, Europe and America - I love travel, so nowhere is too far for me to go for a shoot.

Photography is and always has been my passion and I love nothing more than being able to create and capture some of the most precious memories in people's lives. I get excited hearing about your journeys and witnessing the magic that you share together. A secret (not so secret) romantic, my photography is my love affair with life.
