On Vacation!

  Samantha Jean Photography will be closed from February 12th until February 24th! I am off on my very own Irish adventure! My husband and I will be off exploring the cities of Kilkenny, Cork, Limerick, and Dublin. (As well as a day trip to the Cliffs of Moher!) I plan to take plenty of…

ENDURE SKATEWEAR PROMO

Missi Blue is the sole owner and operator of Endure Skatewear, and a badass roller derby chicka. As a roller derby player myself i’ve loved and owned Endure Skatewear products for years. The shirts are SO soft, perfect for wearing to derby practice. When Missi asked me to help her with some promotional photographs for her apparel…

ROSARIO FAMILY

This family is so cute I can’t handle it! Carrie is an old friend from high school so of course I was honored to do her family photos! We used to have so much fun together when we worked at the local CVS store as teenagers! (She’s also a photographer too! Check her out at carriemichelephotography.com)…

STACEY BOUDOIR

I have recently dabbled in boudoir photography, and i’ve gotta say, i’m loving it! I was so excited when my good friend Stacey asked me to do her boudoir photos as a Valentine’s Day present for her man. I know Stacey through roller derby (Go York City Derby Dames!) so of course, we had to…

MACY K

Whenever i’m just itching to shoot something, Macy K is there to save the day! I had been DYING to do photos in the snow, and thankfully mother nature obliged me with a solid 3 foot of wintery goodness! Macy is so incredibly versatile, so we tried something out of both of our comfort zones…

GERENY FAMILY

I can not even handle how insanely adorable Remi is! I love being able to photograph her as she grows up. Remi is 6 months old, and we got together to do some portraits of her, and to do some family photos for the holidays. 

The Birth of Francesca Isabella

This past week, an opportunity was given to photograph the birth of Francesca Isabella, via surrogate. This particular birth story is special, something incredibly unique. Dayna was selfless enough to give 9 very long months of her life to do something amazing for Joey and Jon. She gave them the opportunity to be parents by being…

FELICIA + HEATHER

Felicia has been a family friend for a really long time. When she asked me to do her engagement photos to Heather of course I said yes! These guys are absolutely perfect for each other. Just being around them together, you can tell that these two were meant to be together. When you have two people…

FIALLOS MATERNITY SESSION

The weather here in Maryland and Pennsylvania has been pretty touch and go lately. Thanks to Hurricane Joaquin, I was completely worried that this session that I was so looking forward to was going to be rained out! But, we got lucky, and it was a beautiful overcast fall day! Nicole and Jimmy were referred…

MACY K

This girl is so photogenic, I just can’t stand it! Macy is a very close friend of mine, who I met through playing roller derby! Macy is also the lead singer in a band, Macy K and the Oven Fresh Hot Delicious. She does a lot of local shows, and needed some images to use…

MACY + SETH

What could be a better location for a couples session than a carnival?! Well… ok. Any other carnival besides the po-dunk one that we ended up with might have been better, but we made it work! Macy and Seth were so cooperative with indulging me, even though it was insanely hot and muggy out! These…

RILEY MAE BIRTH + NEWBORN SESSION

I got a text message at at 11:13pm on Monday night saying “We’re headed to the hospital.” I managed to get myself there by 11:30pm, and the wait began. We spent a good hour wondering if we would be sticking around, or if they were going to be sending Shannon home. Her contractions were close…
