Capturing Your Family Moments ((Samantha Sloan Photography Review))

We have never had family pictures done by a professional until just this past weekend. Instead, I have always set up my Nikon and attempted to do it all myself. It was easier when we just had one kid to contend with, but so much harder now with two. Let’s just say my attempts had varied results. That’s why when Samantha reached out to me, I was thrilled for the opportunity to have a professional photographer capture our little family. I can honestly say it makes all the difference.

I don’t think I’ve ever had so many beautiful photos! The location she chose, Walker Ranch Park, was incredible and we got the only true “cold front” day, so it was marvelous. At 10 a.m. we met up, she picked an area where the light worked best, and got to work. I was immediately impressed with her attitude. She was fantastic with our kids! So much so that our son was giving her hugs and kisses. The baby didn’t even cry at her, which considering Baby K’s intense stranger danger/separation anxiety is a HUGE deal! She also managed to put me (and even my picture taking hating husband) at ease. I prefer to be in control or behind the camera, so not having control over how the photos would turn-out would usually cause me anxiety, but instead I only felt excited.

She also knew the kinds of shots we wanted to get and gave us simple instructions for how we should stand ot interact. Though I think the most amazing part was she let us be ourselves. We got to play together as a family. We love each other and I believe the moments that Samantha captured show that.

Her photography is absolutely stunning! Since a picture is worth a thousand words, I’m going to let them speak for themselves.
