Testimonials - Thank you!

My experience with Samantha was amazing. I had “purchased” a headshot package from a charity auction...but was so nervous to actually have my photo taken. Samantha walked me through the whole process and took some more fun and casual shots for a new Etsy business I’m working on. The photos turned out beyond my expectations. I would recommend her to anyone looking for photos for any occasion.

Samantha took our family photos this year. We are absolutely head over heels in love with these photos! Being a photographer myself I’m not in a lot of my family photos so having Samantha take some for us has been a true blessing. She is patient with small children, kind, understanding and she’s a good listener. I cannot say enough good things about her and her beautiful art! Please don’t hesitate when deciding to use her services or not. There is no question or doubt in my mind that you will most certainly be happy with the photos you receive from her. Thank you again, Samantha, from the bottom of my heart.

Samantha Parker is not only an exceptional photographer, she also knows how to teach photography.

I recently hired Samantha to teach my husband and I how to use a fairly good camera we had purchased five years ago but rarely used because we were intimidated by the many functions.

Samantha came to our house fully prepared. She had researched our camera module and prepared a detailed manual explaining the various settings. Using this personalized manual, she guided us through a hands-on class, teaching us on the basics of photography, and how and when to use the many options our camera has to offer.

Samantha is an incredibly patient teacher, capable of adapting to her students, the surroundings and the particular camera in question. She brings across her understanding and passion for photography in a caring manner. We look forward to our upcoming trip to Europe, staying away from the automatic settings, with a little help from the clever sliding cheat sheet Samantha provided us with.

I have no hesitation in recommending Samantha Parker for teaching anyone the basics of photography and how to use their camera for capturing precious memories while traveling.
