CALIFORNIA BAY AREA

SAN FRANCISCO FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER

From the first inquiry until your final gallery and products are delivered, my goal is to provide you with an experience where you feel taken care of and at ease. After you book with me you’ll receive a questionnaire which helps me to get to know your family better and prepare for our time together. I also help with wardrobe styling, recommending makeup artists and finding the best locations for our session. I shoot with film because it captures all of that beauty in a timeless and romantic way so that you’ll be excited to hang your photos, create an album and share them with friends and family.

FAQS

WHY FILM

I prefer to work with film because the colors and tones that film creates are so beautiful and cannot be reproduced with digital. It’s flattering to all skin tones and helps keep the coloring more true to life and avoid digital editing trends that go in and out of style. Film is truly timeless. 

WHERE SHOULD WE SHOOT

I have a list of preferred locations in the San Francisco Bay Area that I’ve chosen based on their lighting and beauty. We are lucky to be close to so many unique backdrops so whether you want to shoot at the beach, in the redwoods, downtown, an iconic San Francisco viewpoint or a beautiful garden, I will recommend the perfect spot for you.

WHEN DO WE GET TO SEE OUR PICTURES

It will take me between 3-4 weeks to get your session done depending on how many other shoots I’m working on at the time and how busy the lab is. If you need your images sooner, I offer rush delivery for an added fee. 

DO YOU TRAVEL FOR SESSIONS

Absolutely! If you are located outside of San Francisco, reach out and I will give you a quote for travel.

HOW ARE THE IMAGES DELIVERED

After your images are processed by the film lab they will be scanned digitally. I will upload the high res images to an online gallery where you can view and download.

DO YOU HAVE REVIEWS

Yes! Please check out my Facebook page or Google Business page to read all my glowing reviews from past clients.

“Just superb! Samantha was beyond easy to work with and has a very talented eye for catching simple moments of grace and chemistry between loved ones. She was helpful in preparation of our shoot (which made life easy on our end) and working with her during the shoot was a breeze. Bonus: she’s fabulous with kids! Her talent shooting with real film is refreshing in a world of digital, photoshopped images. We love her natural, light, crisp style. Our family will cherish our photographs from our session for years to come.”

“Samantha was THE consummate professional photographer! From initial contact through final photo delivery she helped guide us through each step with helpful explanations and advice, making the entire experience extremely enjoyable. The intimacy of her film photos are remarkable and they speak for themselves. I HIGHLY recommend asking Samantha to help you with your photoshoot!”

“Samantha is the absolute BEST! Getting pictures taken with a toddler can be a bit of a challenge but she was so good with him and so easy to work with. On top of that the pictures turned out absolutely beautiful and I will cherish them forever. Samantha truly is the best and I will continue to use her to capture our family for as long as she lets me, I can’t recommend her enough! Use her! You won’t be disappointed.”

“I have worked with Samantha a handful of times now and I cannot recommend her enough. Her photos are absolutely gorgeous and timeless. She is so talented at capturing those precious moments you will cherish for years to come. Samantha will work with you on location, poses and even wardrobe recommendations. She is always professional and responds immediately. I recommend her to everyone I know. She is truly amazing!!”
