Moments Matter –

Authenticity matters.

Heartfelt connection matters.

Love matters.

Moments matter.

Photography is not just about taking pretty pictures, but also about capturing powerful emotions and heartfelt connections. It’s about the power to encapsulate a moment forever in a photograph. The glow of genuine love. A smile that radiates pure joy.

Bringing joy to my clients with authentic photographs is one of the core reasons why I’m head-over-heels-in love with being a photographer. I’m beyond blessed to share in an intimate part of my clients’ lives. Each and every time I pick up my camera, I’m honored to capture their precious moments.

And when I open up an email with a glowing review from one of my clients after a hard day, those beautiful words make my hard day float away. Kara, from the bottom of my heart, thank you for your beautiful review and putting into words the power of photography. I’m beyond blessed to have y’all as part of the Samba to the Sea familia!

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
