Welcome to Happy Nest Photo 

I'm Samantha

I am a natural light lifestyle and documentary photographer located in Austin, Texas

I specialize in photographing children and families. I offer sessions from maternity, birth, newborn, and beyond. A session with me will be lots of natural, fun loving moments where we focus on the connection of you as a family. I don't like to pose too much, I focus on getting you into position of the best light, and just let you hang out and have fun together! I want you and your family to be true to who you are, and it is my goal to encapsulate that moment in time. 

I found my love for photography after giving birth to my daughter, Penelope. She completely changed my view of the world and I didn't want to miss a single moment of her life. Children grow up so quickly and it is easy to let time slip by. I feel it is so important to capture the silly, fun, and everyday moments of family life. I want to share my love and passion for photography with others and freeze those sweet and simple moments in time. I would love the opportunity to be the one to photograph those special moments for your family.
