Hi I’m Samantha!
I am a rare breed in San Diego, A native! I grew up in Chula Vista and attended Hilltop High. In fact my father was born and raised in the south bay and seems to know everyone in town. I spent a few years living in Orange County while attending California State University, Fullerton receiving my Bachelors degree in Child and Adolescent Studies.
Why Orange County? I met a boy and that’s where he grew up! In 2002 We both graduated and moved back home (for me) to San Diego. In 2003 I married that boy, Aaron, and we began our life together. I was teaching elementary school full time and he was attending law school. Not being completely satisfied we decided to add Photography, a passion for both of us, to our list of hobbies. This quickly became a profession part time and now full time.
Walter, our little Valentine, came into our world Valentine’s Day 2010. He is probably my most favorite thing in the world. He looks exactly like his father and has curly hair with bright blue eyes. I probably shouldn’t have said “little” valentine since he weighed in at 9 lbs 5 oz at birth. Now at age two he is 35 lbs and 37 in tall. Poke around the galleries and blog posts, his beautiful face is there.
I am truly very lucky to be living this life. I have a very happy and healthy family and spend my days celebrating with all of you. I look forward to hearing from you and learning about you and your family.
