I’m 35 weeks pregnant and wanted to take maternity photos and family photos. My family includes my husband Andy, my 4 year old daughter Maggie, and my 2 year old daughter Hazel. My oldest daughter is special needs and not particularly cooperative with photos while my youngest would be happy to photo bomb nearly every shot. Samantha was amazing! She met us at the USNA for our outdoor photo shoot. Not only was she professional and punctual, she put my whole family at ease. We successfully took family pictures with my children and when our youngest tried to cut in to couple and maternity shots, Samantha was able to capture her attention with how to take pictures while snapping shots of me and my husband. It was a wonderful experience and I highly recommend Sumantha Photography for any photo shoot.

Details: Family or children's portrait • Candid (captured in the moment) • Natural / environmental (photographed in an outdoor setting) • Artistic (focus on composition, lighting) • Outdoors • Digital or online download • My home, venue, etc.

Sumantha was an absolute gem! Not only did she have the best suggestion for a photo shoot (that too, requested at last minite), but she paid particular attention to detail, suggested outfit ideas, beautiful poses, and is so much to hang out with. Highly recommend her for photo shoots and definitely will be requesting her help on a regular basis!

Sumantha’s level of professionalism and responsiveness was beyond my expectations from the very first communication. Her ability to be flexible AND her creative recommendations for different poses were icing on the cake.

My parents and I really enjoyed our session! We felt truly seen and like she captured our joy in a special moment. There was a great mix of candid and posed shots. I'm thrilled with the photos!! I look forward to working together again soon.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I understand having a budget. I also understand hardship very well - I can work with you, just as long as you can work with me too. The experience should be a WIN-WIN.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    My typical process would be getting to know more about the project. I'd want to know if the client has ideas that they'd like to incorporate in the photos, if not...not a problem at all! This just means I get the honors of using my creative brain muscle to capture beauty.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Took courses in digital photography and also through experience - doing free shoots for friends, friends of friends and family events/gatherings.
