Sammie D Journal

I love snuggling, real laughs, genuine love, fresh air, and combining it all into authentic moments to photograph! If you're into photos that feel as real as you are, you want your memories made to last, and you'd like to make a new friend in the process, keep scrolling, I can't wait to meet you.

Lavender field sessions are quickly becoming my secret love for photo sessions, especially for my couples! And Menkveld Farms lavender field in Nolensville/Nashville area is the perfect backdrop for any type of photography. I couldn’t wait to have Jose and Susan in front of my camera for their gorgeous couples photos! Because Nashville traffic sucks, […]

Y’all…I’m at a loss for what to say about this session. My soul needed it, I loved every moment of it, and I’m so thankful for clients like Roberta and Frank! But really, this in-home cuddle session was something I had been dying to shoot for months now and I was over the moon when […]

Each year, I like to enter a photography contest called Shoot & Share. The Shoot & Share Photo Contest is the world’s only free & fair photo contest. You can enter up to 50 photos in 25 different categories. The Shoot & Share Photo Contest is unique because it’s all about the photos. It’s not about one […]

Meet the beautiful Roberta! She and I boarded our horses together first at Harmony Horse Farm LLC in Adams, […]

I remember talking with friends last year about how I had been itching to do a snow shoot with a couple. I wanted warm cuddles and cute smiles, lots of laughter and every shot to scream ‘hopelessly in love’. So when Clarksville, TN finally got a good amount of snow, and roads were actually passable, […]

Part Two~ So if you read Part One (click here if you haven’t) you know that Alex and Ryan are some of my favorite people and I pretty much got my dream session when Alex asked me to do her engagement photos and included her horses. You should also know I totally over shot her […]

Part One~ When I first moved my horse Wolfie to Harmony Horse Farm LLC. in Adams, TN, I knew no one, hadn’t had my horse in almost two years and was terrified of messing it all up. In walked this confident, bigger than life person who was not only super knowledgable on horses, but super […]
