Samaria is absolutely incredible when it comes to doing what she loves! We’ve had family portraits done which I cherish because she captures exactly who we are, and today my children began taking photography classes with her. The whole time they were so inspired. Watching my girls learn and create, I truly felt like she opened up a magical wonderland for them. By the end of the session, they were full of giggles and smiles! They couldn’t stop talking about it after she left and they can’t wait for their next session.

What a wonderful experience with The Sprouting Image photography! With a large group from ages 11 months to 72 years old, we were a busy group and Samaria was flexible, creative, skilled and enjoyable to work with. She was punctual and efficient, but also a lot of fun. We felt so lucky to have had her as our photographer for special family photos for my in-laws 50th Anniversary!

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. 

Those values and years of awesome work with parents and kids are how we've crafted both our easy photos for families, and our media art lessons for kids. Let's create some fun!
