mentorships

education + smiles + adventure

After contemplating back and forth about this topic, I have finally decided to offer mentorship programs to other photographers. The best part of this is that you can be from ANYWHERE, and we can video chat about anything you would like to talk about! I may not have gone to school for photography, but I can tell you that we can talk about editing, marketing, business, stories, weddings, and so much more. With that, I PROMISE we will laugh, smile, and become friends after our chat. If you are on the edge of pursuing YOUR education, go for it!

Something I have always been passionate about is leadership and education. Growing up, I was taught to stand firm even in hard situations, and I have lived by this motto my entire life. As photography became a passion of mine, I realized that I wanted to learn more about the hobby I was joining. At the same time, I joined my local 4-H club, and ALWAYS (seriously - not joking) continued to work hard with my passion. After five long years, I was able to win the state fair with my photo, but this success also came from my knowledge of photography.

Samantha is amazing!!!! She immediately felt like a friend. She’s so GENUINE and to me that’s super important when looking for a mentor session. Her personality is inspiring!!! I can tell how passionate she is about photography and I know she will go far in her photography journey. I highly recommend a mentor session with her!!! She had answers to all of my questions!! I definitely learned a lot in just 60 minutes with her. It was easy to relate on lot of things I had questions on because she used to be in the same spot I’m in. She knew exactly what I was going through and so her advice was super helpful!!!

I had the opportunity to schedule a mentorship session with Samantha this summer and within an hour, I felt like I had made a real connection with Sam! My main focus for the session was editing my photos without losing natural skin tones and finding new ways to make clients feel more at ease during my sessions. The way Sam was able to explain editing and posing techniques coupled with her professional yet friendly and casual style made the session so incredibly useful and FUN! We laughed over awkward moments with clients and talked about our photography journeys and where it all began! I highly recommend anyone wanting to take their photography skills to the next level to spend some time working with Sam. It truly is an investment in yourself that both you and your clients will be happy you made!! Looking forward to scheduling my next session with her!
