"Had the absolute pleasure of working with Sam a few weeks ago and I cannot praise her enough, normally I’m not very photogenic and a bit shy in front of the camera but with her warm presence I was soon settled and really enjoyed myself, her turn around was incredible and I had the photos back in about a week and boy howdy does she know what’s she’s doing behind the camera. Every photo received was gobsmacking and honestly, the best photos iv ever seen of myself.
Thank you so so much Sam for everything!"
