Hi! This is a model call for those interested in stock photo opportunities with me (Samantha McBride Photography). Usually these opportunities will be just “lifestyle” photos or they might be photos I might use for a clothing brand. Currently looking for kids, teens and moms, but may expand that need in the future. How […]
CLICK AWAY 2018 — A PHOTOGRAPHY CONFERENCE HELD AT THE OMNI HOTEL FEB 16-18 (AMELIA ISLAND) I did a model call a few months back for this conference coming up in February. A few more needs have come up for both me and some other photographers. If you already applied, feel free to […]
This December session was 60 degrees at 7am! Perfect and comfortable with the beach empty enough to relax. I think it’s my favorite spot and time to shoot for sure and can’t wait to get back when it warms up a little again. This session was focused on mom and baby with some dad shots […]
I have a soft spot for twins of course and this big brother is just as cute as can be. It’s not easy working with 3 kids that are three and under but this family pulled it off on a chilly morning with an early start. Love this family and this light!

This was just one of the most inspiring sessions I’ve had as a photographer, combining my new love of underwater photography and my old love of maternity photos. Even more special, this mom was carrying twins and found me last minute — when she knew it was probably now…
These guys are always full of light and wonderful to work with!
There were so many rules in my head that kept me away from in-home newborn sessions — you have to pose baby in knots, cart a truckload of props and swaddle like a superhero to name a few. And while there are people that do this beautifully, it’s not me and I’m so thankful for […]
More from our beach trip in September that I hadn’t gotten a chance to work on. To me, nothing more beautiful than the sight of my boys in their happy place and these were taken at sunrise, so the light was amazing. Just based on how much I love shooting here, I think I may […]
This sweet family came and saw me on a Friday afternoon, driving in traffic with a baby that hadn’t napped — but you would never know it! She was such a delight and set the tone for a fun and special session. Her big bros were also so great to work with even after the long drive. Perhaps this […]
This family brought the humor and joy and everything we needed for a magical session! The location and light made it all the more beautiful — what a perfect night!
This family was adorable in every way and such a pleasure to capture. When my talented friend and fellow photographer (Kenzi Tainow Photography) reached out to me about a session, I knew it was going to be super fun! They ventured out from the city to tackle Berry Patch Farms with me. I’m a creature of habit […]
Wonderful time with this beautiful family at our neighborhood pond (they live here too!) This was a morning session and the awesome light is why I ask clients to get here so early — now that the time’s changed that’s 8am. So worth it though!
My little family at the pumpkin patch! Beautiful scene and great memories!
Love this family so much and have worked with them at 3 ponds now! We always cover a lot of ground and get some special shots. These girls are so precious and just looked like angels in this beautiful light. Too many favorites!
I feel super lucky to get to work with this family and also lucky that my prime location has both morning and evening light that is perfect. Every session is different and I love the privacy and natural beauty here. It can be chilly, but kids can be more cooperative in the morning and parents […]
I’m the worst about getting my own family photos done. One reason is that my sister Lisa Rappa is an amazing professional photographer and she gifts us with a great shot at random moments on vacations or family gatherings. Of course, I know that there’s much more to be had from a full family session, […]
This was just one of the most inspiring sessions I’ve had as a photographer, combining my new love of underwater photography and my old love of maternity photos. Even more special, this mom was carrying twins and found me last minute — when she knew it was probably now or never to capture this glorious […]

So much fun to work with this beautiful family!
So much to love about lifestyle sessions (my new “Day In the Life” Package) — being in the client’s real-life environment, capturing them together in their element, the flexibility of the format, the extended time and the magic that just naturally happens! I couldn’t have asked for a more awesome family to start with and […]
Extra special because I’m related to these beautiful people! Save Save
I don’t think a couple needs any occasion to have a session together that celebrates their love, so that’s why I’m offering a special mini package for couples only. While I try to get a few couple shots in each family session, I find it’s more intimate and emotional if only the couple is present […]
I smiled the whole time working on this gallery! This session was such a joy and this family so sweet with each other. We had some fun with the poses, trying some I’d never even tried before (and the creative family helping to come up with them). We had a blast and covered a lot […]
I have a soft spot for brothers since I have three boys myself (and one tough girl!), so to photograph these boys was much like it would be working with my own. So much spirit and silliness and of course sweetness — never still for more than a second, and thankfully all I need is […]
The hour before sunset is already magical, but this sweet family brought even more, making it a special session. So cute seeing this baby boy surrounded by love, and I was so amazed by mom’s grace and calm with 3 children under 6 in a photo session– wish I could say I’d be that way! […]
