Hi, I am Samantha Valencia.

Thank you so much for visiting my site. I am a mother of two precious little girls. A wife to the best husband ever!

In honesty my career path was not always geared towards photography. I was actually a trainer first, I had two successful fitness studios before I was 22 years old. The stress of running gyms, dealing with the very “CRAZY and STRESSFUL” non stop gym lifestyle! I fell into anxiety and depression.

The biggest obstacle my husband and I were facing was killing me! I couldn’t get pregnant, we tried & tried , but nothing. Fast forward a year and half, I sought out fertility treatments. The Doctors plain out told me, my lifestyle with the stress I was under, It was playing a big role in my fertility problems. 

I remember all I really wanted in my life at that point, was a baby. Felt like, that was what my life was missing. So with the support of my amazing husband we closed the gyms.

I had a few rounds of fertility treatments and I got my 1st Angel Mila Grace!

When my daughter Mila was born, I saw life in a completely different way!I all of a sudden had this fascination with freezing time, and found another obsession with natural light! As a present my husband brought home my, first DSLR Camera so I didn’t miss a beat with our new baby. 

The first minute I picked that camera and captured Mila. I knew that I found everything I was looking for! I knew exactly then, that I was gonna make it my mission, to learn every single thing I could about my camera. The Art and the different styles of photography. The rest was history.

I absolutely love that I am blessed that people trust me to capture there precious moments. Freezing that bit of time, in a photographic journal!

I literally could cry , I have found my passion. I get up everyday and say I love my job!

“"Samantha was AMAZING to work with! She shot our wedding on July 27, 2018 along with her second shooter. Samantha was punctual and she even made it a point to stop at my parents place before heading to my grooms parents place just to let me know about the traffic we would be expecting on route. Talk about going the extra mile for your clients! Samantha made our wedding day an absolute DREAM! My husband is very shy around the camera and hates taking pictures but he absolutely LOVED working with Sam!”
