Hello & Welcome!


My name is Samantha Manness and I am a professional photographer based in the High Desert of Southern California.


  • I have been a natural light photographer for 6 years.
  • I enjoy capturing a mixture of posed and candid moments during my sessions.
  • I truly love to capture real and personal interactions of my clients. So many of my clients have become people I truly care about and enjoy!
  • I specialize in capturing authentic, genuine moments for families and individuals.
  • I believe that connection is key in my work. When I work with clients, I strive to create a comfortable and fun atmosphere so that we can connect on a deeper level and capture genuine, authentic moments. 
  • My ultimate goal is to create beautiful, timeless images that my clients will cherish for a lifetime.


Thank you for considering me as your photographer. I look forward to the opportunity to work with you and create something truly special.
