"I never say no to an adventure. With my trusty camera at my side, I am driven by an overwhelming desire to capture the beauty of the world around me. This search is never ending, but always worth it. As I move through this life, I know I will always be inspired by the world around me, for at the end of the day this is what I was born to do." - Sammie


HI, I’m Sammie! I am a professional photographer based in the Hudson Valley, NY, and more importantly a mom to two amazing little boys, AJ and Jackson who are the backbone of everything I do. I have a caffeine obsession, can quote movies like no tomorrow, can sing a-long (off key of course ha-ha) to almost any song, am clumsy as all hell, and really try to be a caring, loving, and empathetic person.

I have loved photography for as long as I can remember, buying throw away cameras and collaging my walls with all the places I wanted to visit, images I loved, and inspirational quotes. Looking back, I realize now that my heart knew what I was meant to do long before I used my first camera. I officially started photographing in 2007, this is where I can pinpoint the exact moment, I knew I wanted to be a photographer.  From there I transformed my passion into a career in 2012 when I created Photography by Samantha Finch. I can confidently say that my journey in photography has evolved as my own life has unfolded, and currently brings me to my favorite season yet, a time I affectionally call my “Mom Era.”

My mission is to inspire and motivate individuals to see the beauty in everyday life, following their journey, however that may look, and to preserve the important moments in their lives. It is my dream to be able to give my clients as opportunity to relive their most scared moments repeatedly.
