Hello, I'm Samaria! Owner, art teacher, and photographer at The Sprouting Image. I live in Los Angeles with my amazing wife who is a video game producer and a damn tasty lasagna maker. After working as a Photographer and Video Editor for 8 years for brands such as Google, Activision Blizzard, UPS, Sony Online Entertainment, and NBC, I am now building a talented team of photo, video, and happy kid experts who love to teach, create visual stories, and help empower kids to be excited about making something from nothing.
Before starting my photography career and finishing college, I was teaching with the Child Development Resource Center in San Luis Obispo which is a child abuse prevention program serving at-risk kids. There I learned the incredible value of bringing fun into learning and giving kids tools to think and create for themselves. Most importantly, I learned the important practice of speaking to kids like the capable minds they are, which can truly strengthen their self awareness and confidence.
