About Sammie

Hi! I’m a lifestyle photographer based in Dallas. I have been photographing families since 2010. I’m a natural light photographer with a documentary style. I love to help people feel comfortable in front of the camera with gentle guidance while trying not to interfere with genuine moments.

I’m married to Chase, my high school sweetheart. We met in marching band! He’s an IT consultant and is equally brilliant, humble and kind. We have a beautiful baby girl and a silly pup named Charley. We love to read, travel, and play card games at restaurants, or anywhere really (we played Gin Rummy while I was in labor for distraction!) Most days, I’m balancing a baby on one hip and a cup of coffee in the other hand. I edit while she naps and when she wakes, I make silly faces to make her laugh.

I’m so thankful for all of the families I’ve photographed. Feel free to contact me if you’d like to work together!


I’m looking forward to knowing more about you! Email me at
