I’m an artist based in the greater Chicagoland area specializing in photography and art direction, with 10 years of professional photography experience under my belt. I’m bold in my approach to my work and have an uncontrollable desire to create; I’ve been told I’m a “fiery redhead,” a label I tend to agree with. I spend most of my days at a shoot — whether it’s creative portraits, weddings or engagements — but in my free time you can find me editing photos with my golden retriever and black cat (you might even see some photos of them).

“Sammy was ABSOLUTELY incredible! She made me feel like a queen/model, used her eye for great shots and vision to position us while still feeling incredibly natural. She is the best of the best. You can tell it’s just as important to her to capture your day as it is to you. She has incredible talent!”

“Sam photographed our wedding and we are so happy with our photos! Sam is not only professional, she puts you at ease! She made us feel comfortable even though we are a little camera shy. She had the perfect balance of traditional family photos and the edgier photos we wanted to capture the day. We plan to use her again for future photography needs!”
