Hello, I'm Samantha

I am passionate about storytelling through images that elicit an emotional response. I seek to connect on a deeper level. My unobtrusive presence allows me to capture fleeting moments of joy, love, and tenderness with intentionality.

A blurb about me — I was born again in 2015, I married my person in 2017, gave birth to our beautiful boy in 2018, welcomed our darling daughter in 2021, and joyfully brought into the world our second son. I love ocean waves, little feet, and anything with a motor.

heart lead documentation

modern storytelling for nostalgic hearts

What started off as a desire to capture pretty photos, has quickly evolved into a yearn to create within an environment that feels honest, intimate, and authentic. I want to document it just as it felt.

For it is up to you and me
to take solace
in nostalgia's arms

and our ability
to create
the everlasting
from fleeting moments.

Capturing light, feelings & moments.

Everly Collective was founded with the intent to create emotional elicitation through artful documentation. My approach to our time together is rooted in providing an experience that feels true to you. This is your story told from a photojournalistic perspective.

I pay attention to all of the little details that make up the larger story. You don't need prior experience in front of the camera, a modelesque look, a perfectly clean home, or a million dollar wedding. There is so much beauty in the ordinary, the mundane, the everyday, the behind the scenes, and I vow to reveal that to you in an artful manor. What truly matters are the people you're surrounded by and the feelings that they bring you. That's where my heart lies.

Your job is to trust in the process, be willing to let your guard down, and show up with the intent to be fully present— I'll do the rest.

I feel connected to your stories. They inspire & refresh me — I take a piece of that home.

I have the great honor of photographing your life stories. Every type of session brings its own sense of excitement and beauty. 

After an engagement shoot, I bring a youthful kind of love home, with me. I reminisce about the passion and simplicity from that time in my own life. During a wedding day, I feel the butterflies that my brides experience before their big walk down the aisle, soaking in the final moments of being a fiancé and ready to become a wife. I remember seeing those two pink lines that all the country songs talk about. You get eager to tell the whole world about the new life that you are creating. That first ultrasound blows your mind but nothing compares to the 20 week appointment, ending in a debate over whose nose the baby has. I can relate to all the thoughts going through a new mom's mind. I remember bringing each baby home, admiring all of their little features and being curious about their future. Expanding my threshold, while giving every part of me during these foundational years. 

I never expected to be a "milestone" photographer, but let’s just say each session/season fills my cup up in different ways. I connect with each of you because I remember those moments and I can empathize with your feelings. 

our journey starts here






I can't wait to meet you.
