It is my belief, that all women should feel free to create, go for their dream job, take shameless selfies, wear a bra, not wear a bra, always wear makeup, never wear makeup, dress for fun, and all the in-betweens.

Stepping in front of the camera & laying our insecurities bare, is terrifying to a lot of women. Most women, even. But the truly beautiful thing about facing a fear? It puts us in a growth mindset. We have achieved something outside of our normal comfort zone, and the brain then asks, “what’s next?”, and that is where we begin to grow.

Women Rising is all about liberating women from the expectations of what they should or shouldn't be. It is about providing a safe space where you get to embrace and adore who you are. I want you to come away from this shoot feeling seen, understood, and powerful. 

The result - a set of photographs that you can look back on, and remind yourself of who that woman truly is.

I don’t even have the words to describe how incredible this lady is. Made us feel so comfortable from the very beginning, nothing seemed forced or staged and we had such a laugh on the shoot. Fastest turn around on edits and nothings too much trouble. Cannot recommend enough and would love to work with Samantha again in the future. Thank you Samantha for capturing such a special time in our lives

What can I say about Samantha? She’s amazing!! Kind, patient, innovative, creative but most of all a genuinely wonderful human being. She very kindly took some photographs of my niece and they are absolutely beautiful. If you’re thinking of any sort of photographs please call this girl - you WILL NOT regret it xx

We booked a Christmas mini shoot for our little one and oh my goodness, I was not prepared for how incredible the whole experience would be.
Sam was amazing with our little one and got him smiling and being silly straight away. This resulted in the most incredible photos. All the photos we will treasure forever. Sam is such a talent and we can’t wait to make this a yearly tradition.
