My family has done photos with Sami a few times now, and from first time we ever worked with Sami we knew she was a next level photographer. She was able to make us feel comfortable in front of a camera in a way we never have before. She really captured us as our true selves instead of as our posed picture perfect selves. We love working with her and her beautiful work she has done hangs all over my home.
