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.

Sometimes, being a photographer’s son means humoring your stepmom and sucking it up while she documents another chapter of your life. In this case, it meant freezing in a field beside a Walmart Market parking lot right before turning your Kenwood Knights Clarksville Jr. Pro jersey in for the season so that I could grab […]

I have the cutest friends y’all. I can’t even over exaggerate that one! Kelsey is another friend I met when I moved my horse to Harmony Horse Farm LLC. in Adams, TN. She was out there baby wearing and cleaning stalls like a total bad a** and she was super sweet from the jump! We […]

Did you hear?! It’s time to celebrate in 2018! I am so excited to announce that with the new year, Sammie D Photography will be offering full wedding photography services for Clarksville, TN and the greater area! It has been a long time coming and, now that we will be settled in the area for […]

To the outside world, it may seem like once you’ve attended one military homecoming, you’ve attended them all, but for me, that’s never the case. Each one is so special, not just because a family is once again whole, but because our Soldiers are home safely. At Fort Campbell, KY, I’ve had the pleasure of […]

What do you get when you have two gorgeous, red-headed archers who are crazy in love with each other? You have one of the most amazing and unique sessions you’ve ever photographed! When Sam first contacted me about photographing her and her husband, I am not ashamed to say I squealed out loud. Guys, this […]

One day, while checking my email, I came across a sweet, deployed husband asking about booking a session for his wife and son, as a surprise! It was one of the sweetest emails I’ve ever received and I absolutely loved being a part of it!! I delivered flowers and a gift certificate to his sweet […]

Fort Campbell, KY homecomings have wiggled their way deep in to my heart. It could be because I’ve had the pleasure of serving with the Screaming Eagles, or it could be because of the many special homecomings I’ve photographed of 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) Soldiers reuniting with their families. The sweet Comfort family waited […]

When ChristyAnn first contacted me about her boyfriend’s homecoming, it was the beginning of January. She told me her ceremony was sometime around July and I couldn’t believe how long we’d have to wait! But I love that I got to know her so well in the months spent waiting. Christina’s boyfriend, Pfc. Fabreag is […]

As always, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) homecomings at Fort Campbell, KY steal the top spot in my heart. Plus, who doesn’t love coming home to more than 15 family members and friends?! Jennifer and her group took the prize for the largest homecoming I’ve shot and they were so awesome about it! Jennifer made […]

I say it over and over again, I adore homecomings! There is nothing more special than watching a family be united after months away and I always feel so honored to be included in the moment, especially for my Screaming Eagle families with the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault). The Bayles family was no exception! […]
