The most desired, yet dreaded photo for any mom to set up. "Oh gosh, we haven't had a family photo since my senior was a toddler. But I just want to lose a few more pounds before we set something up."


Stop waiting for the perfect time for family photos and capture this time together. Who cares if you just haven't lost that baby weight, or if you're dreading putting together coordinating outfits. The important idea to remember is that you are doing this to archive your life.

I am very laid back and light hearted during family sessions. Plan on laughing a lot, walking hand in hand, snuggling, and maybe even dancing! Looking forward to capturing your emotions and connections. Family is forever, and more importantly, so are photographs, so let's get you booked!


Check out my two packages, find out what best fits your needs and hit me up when you are ready to get a day on the calendar. I look forward to working with you!

"I’m so glad we found SBS, Sam was amazing! She was very professional and so understanding and fun to work with! Having a toddler to photograph can be tough, but she knew just how to do it and bring it all together! I really could not have asked for more! We are so happy with the quality and experience Sam offered and we can’t wait to get some more photos done by SBS in the near future! Highly recommended!"  –Tonya G.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I split my photo session into two sessions?

You are more than welcome to split your gold session into two meetings, however, I do charge an additional $100. This is simply because I have to block another slot on the calendar, as well as more drive time and mileage. Drop me a line to discuss your thoughts and we can come up with a game plan that works for you!

Can I get a proof book of all the photos we took?

I do offer hard cover, coffee table books for an additional $50. This book will include the thirty final images you select. They will be edited and will include the photo number as a caption to assist you in the ordering process. These are great keepsakes and are awesome to set out at your open house.

Could I have a few shots with my friend/pet in the photo?

Sure! Bring a friend! If anything, this will help you be yourself and encourage you to relax and laugh as well! I also love when people bring their fur babies to shoots, and so does my dog Alice! Please just remember a leash and keep in mind that we will be shooting for at least an hour, so having a helper to watch over Fido while we finish the other shots would be a good idea!

How do we submit my yearbook photo?

Depending on the school you attend, I will edit your yearbook photo as is required and submit to the yearbook staff so that you don't even have to worry about it! Please be sure to get a hold of your school's yearbook portrait requirements so that I can shoot accordingly!
