The Family Experience

As a mom myself, I know we all have huge to do lists, and time only feels like it keeps going faster. You want to stop time, remember who they are right now at this very moment. Let me capture you and your family so that you remember every precious moment. 
So that you can have artwork you are proud to hang on your walls. Artwork that will serve a springboard for storytelling. Artwork that will help deepen your family's sense of belonging and connection. 


Please get in touch by filling in the contact form below. I will give you a  call because I want to hear all about your family and what you like to do together. I will also answer any of your questions, give you additional information on the collections I offer, and some date options I have available around the rough date you request in the contact form.

Once a date is chosen, the session fee is paid and then you are officially on the calendar for your session and we can start planning the fun details!

1. Say Hello

 I'll come over to your house and we'll get to planning.
We will pick a location to suit the vibe you would like. I shoot at a range of locations all around southern Colorado and have many beautiful locations to recommend, whether its a park, the mountains or something a little more urban.
I will help you with styling your session for everyone in your family so the overall look comes together beautifully. If there are any props or things you would like included I will get all of this information to make sure your photoshoot is exactly as you would like.

2. In Person Planning

It's photoshoot day! Let's have some fun!

I will meet you at the chosen location and then we will get started! My photoshoots are always full of fun, corny dad jokes, and many times by the end of the session the kids are inviting me over for a game night!
 I will guide you through both poses and also just interacting with each other and having an all around good time!

3.  Session day

About a week after the session, I'll come over to your house and you'll get to see the images! We'll laugh and maybe even shed a few tears as we go through all the images we captured . Together we'll select your favorites, and best products for your family so you can enjoy them for years to come!

4. viewing & Ordering appt

Yay, you're products are in and they look beautiful. 
I'll schedule a time to bring them to you and even go the extra mile and hang those beautiful portraits on your walls. One less thing on your to do list! Yay!

Sam went more than the extra mile to make everything work for our family, she took the time to get to know us, and she made the shoot fun and personal to us. We now have gorgeous artwork and so many memories spread throughout our house.


Samantha is one of the most talented people I have ever had the pleasure to be around!!! She has done my family portraits, my spouses headshots, and my own headshots for my business!! I would recommend Samantha to anyone at any time of day!!!

Samantha Hardcastle is a family photographer that demonstrates the highest level of quality, professionalism, dedication, and energetic passion to her work. . . . !! It was a pleasure to do a session with her. The results were more than I could have asked for!!


Here's why you choose Sam Hardcastle as a photographer...she will capture your family authentically. She did such a great job at letting us be who we are and followed along to catch us just as we are. The pictures she took are going to take me right back to this age for my children, to this place in their life, to these moments that make me smile and laugh and cry. Her ability to take who we are and put them in stills is inspiring. She will take your vision that you didn't you had and put it into pictures. I am so happy with the images that she took for us!


showcase the ones you love on your walls!
