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 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, […]

When Morgan first contacted me in regards to her senior session, I had no clue how much fun I was about to get in to! Morgan was a graduating senior from Clarksville High School, Clarksville, TN, and has a killer sense of fashion. I noticed it as soon as she walked into Starbucks for our […]

When I first met Kara, then later met Morgan, I had no clue they were good friends from Clarksville High School. As soon as I found out, I knew they’d be perfect for a senior photoshoot I had been envisioning for awhile. A bucket list shoot was finding a few friends to photograph with a travel […]

I first met Kara at my booth during an event at the Wilma Rudolph Event Center in Clarksville, TN and was so excited when she approached me about senior photos! Senior photo sessions are one of my absolute favorite types of sessions to plan. It gives seniors the opportunity to show who they are, while documenting the […]

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 […]

Where to start with these two?! Rachel and Johnny are two of the sweetest, most down to earth people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and I think their engagement session truly shows that. The adorable couple met through mutual friends and were recently reunited at Fort Campbell, KY after Johnny returned home from a […]

I love when my personal interests collide with photography sessions, it makes everything that much more fun! My annual smore mini sessions are no exception! One of my all time favorite things to do during the summer and fall is indulge and over stuff myself on smores. I love when the smell of a campfire sinks […]
