Samantha Jean Photography was founded and is solely operated by myself, Samantha Reese. I began my photography business in 2010 as a hobby. That hobby has since grown into a huge passion of mine. I love being able to capture an individuals personality in a photo, not just their good looks!
One of the things that let me to discover my passion for photography was my passion for graphic design. I attended the Art Institute of York, PA while majoring in Digital Arts. For the majority of my assignments I was required to take my own photos. After a while, I found myself more excited by taking the photos for my projects than by the actual project itself! I completed my degree in 2009, and soon after began to put my knowledge of design and photography together and create Samantha Jean Photography.
While photography is a huge passion, I am also passionate about a few other things. My main hobby is roller derby, and I play for a team in York, PA called the York City Derby Dames! I have been playing for several years, and it’s an amazing sport full of amazing people. I am also an avid reader, and am the proud of owner of two kitties named Savannah and Naomi, and an adorable pooch named Apollo.
