Thank you so much for the kind review Frank! I'm glad you liked the photos, I enjoyed getting to know you!
A huge thanks to Sam for her thoughtful and creative guidance in producing such a gorgeous portfolio of our angel. She was patient with our daughter and quick to edit and get the photos to us ahead of schedule! She is clearly enthusiastic and passionate about her art! Highly recommended!Jun 2, 2017
Hiring Sam was the best decision I could have made for my daughter's first birthday celebrations. Not only did she beautifully capture my daughter's cake smash session, she came to her birthday party to take photos of all of the decor and special moments from the day. She is extremely creative on her own, needing no direction to capture beautiful memories, but she is also very open to trying new things if there is something special or specific you want photographed. I would highly recommend Sam for any of your photography needs!May 26, 2017
We had an absolutely wonderful time on our shoot. Our photographer was fun, patient, professional creative and passionate about her art. We are definitely recommending to everyone interested in getting a timeless, priceless stitch of memories. We cannot wait to indulge in this experience again! Absolutely LOVE Sam Demartin Photography!!!May 23, 2017

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I have a baseline of pricing, but there are so many different options that could come up that would adjust the price accordingly. I like to think that I could work with anyone's budget and come up with a solution that works for all parties involved!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?My client and I will chat before our session so they can tell me a little bit about themselves. If it's for a larger event like a wedding or a shower, we'll meet for coffee and go over the day in detail, put together a shot list, and talk about the kind of mood they'd like to evoke in their photos. For bigger things like this, and surprise engagements, I will often scout the location beforehand and get to know the area I'm going to be shooting in.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I went to college for Communication Design, which included photography studio classes and translates extremely well to the field of photography. While our main focus was graphic design, we learned about line, color, shapes, balance, harmony, rhythm, composition...and so much more; plus the relationships between them all! This training has turned me into a better photographer because I am able to pay attention to subtle nuances that have the opportunity to take a photo to the next level. I am very into continuing education and regularly take online courses and attend local classes to hone my skills and stay on top of trends.
