;

today is the day,

Because it seems like yesterday you were holding them in your arms, or letting go of their hand as they took their first steps, and reading them a book good night.

If only you could freeze time and stop them from growing up oh-so-fast.

If only you had something to help you savor all of those precious moments.

If only someone else could capture these magic moments so you could be in the photo too.

Like that spontaneous sword fight with your son, your baby girl’s first time at the beach, your son’s coy smile, or the new life growing within – – your beautiful baby bump.

You’re in the right place.

You can have those moments captured – – those moments that make you and your loved ones unique & one-of-a-kind – – so you can remember them forever.

You can have such beautiful images that I promise you’ll want to make family photos a family ritual, especially because you really enjoyed the experience so much.

And you can have photographs that live somewhere else besides on your iPhone – – images that are so authentically you’re family that you’re so excited to print and create a gallery wall at home.

Yes, today is the day because the days with young ones pass so fast, but these images are forever.

We had such a wonderful experience with Kristen. She made our session so relaxed. She is fun, energetic and easy to be with. The photos were incredible and we have used other professional photographers before with the kids. Kristen has the talent to catch truly genuine moments – nothing is super “posed” about the portraits….you will bring home the type of creative, beautiful photos you see on Pinterest and wish you could have in your home! Highly recommend!

Kristen was an absolute pleasure to work with. Her sense of angles and lighting are the keys to her beautiful photographs. She took her time and worked with me and my family to not only capture gorgeous photos but also captured who we are. These pictures are my most treasured and I truly look forward to using her again in the future.

Where do I start. Kristen is not amazing, she is extraordinary. She truly goes above and beyond for her clients. She has done two sessions for us now. The first was a maternity which was better than I hoped. Fast forward a year later and she did a family shoot with our our daughter and grand parents. The pictures she captures are just amazing. She has this ability of seeing things you wouldn’t think to tell her and she captures that. Every single picture we have is a favorite. That is no lie. She and her assistant, Gidget, were amazing with our 8 month old. They kept her interested and laughing the entire time. She is our top pic for photography. She is also truly a great person and cares for her clients. Last thing, we did not get many pics with my mother and I forgot to ask her to get a sunset shot. We ended up seeing her outside at sunset a few days later. Without asking she offered to take a few sunset shots of my mother and daughter. Not only were they amazing and special but, what photographer does that?! We love her. You can’t go wrong picking Samba to the Sea. She is a blessing 🙂 – Kara

I just finished viewing my photos, with tears in my eyes. They definitely captured the joy and love we share as a family. These are treasures we will hold on to forever. We really couldn’t wait to see these photos, and appreciate the quick delivery (5 days). Kristen was wonderful and accommodated us with really short notice. She does such beautiful work. I will surely be recommending you to anyone I know visiting Tamarindo and area in Costa Rica ! ❤ – Ayla, Tyler, and Harper

Our family spent the summer in Tamarindo, Costa Rica. Before we left we decided to hire a photographer to take some photos to help commemorate our wonderful trip. I can’t say enough wonderful things about Kristen. The photos were stunning! We have two young kids who were quite the handful and she was just so good with them. Getting the cutest shots by asking them to tell each other a secret or whisper a joke to each other. Her photos are so creative and we will forever be grateful for these memories that she captured for us. If you are considering a photographer in Tamarindo, Samba to the Sea will not disappoint! – Kalik Family

Samba to the Sea was the perfect find for our family photo session. Kristen was always very responsive to our requests, professional & extremely easy to work with. Even with the rain in the forecast, she waited until the last minute watching the report to make sure the shoot was going to be just perfect! I wish I could go back to November and had chosen her to do our wedding photos but these are beautiful & we have gorgeous treasured memories of our growing family now. Thanks Kristen & Samba to the Sea! – Shawna

I would love to hear what photographic ideas you have cooking, whether it be playing on the beach with your family, wandering the Spanish Moss squares in Savannah, or baking a batch of cookies at home. I know there are countless other awesome photographers to choose from, so how about we grab a cup of delicious Costa Rican coffee and get to know each other? If the fit is right, I can’t wait to welcome you and your loved ones to the Samba to the Sea familia!

P.S. My clients love working with me as much as I love working with them; be sure to read their beautiful words of praise.
