Heather,Seems to me that the best presents are the ones we don't expect. When I arrived at your studio I expected to get my picture taken but the wonderful surprise was discovering you and your portrait process. I felt like I was your only priority. The way you worked put me at ease and that really paid off in the final product - the best portrait I've ever had. Thank you so much. I'm a fan and I'll be sending my friends your way!God Bless,Duane Jones

What started out as a simple effort to update my business card photo at Heather Sams Fine Portraits turned into a delightful experience with magnificent results. I was met upon arrival, and after only a few minutes of casual discussion, Heather converted my awkwardly stated needs into a plan for creating my new professional image. Her professionalism, talent, and creativity were evident from the start, as she guided me skillfully and efficiently through the portrait and selection sessions. I was so pleased with the results that I not only updated my business card image, but I also moved quickly to reenergize my advertising and marketing campaign materials, inserting my new images throughout. I got everything promised at a price less than I expected. It’s pleasure to recommend her!Marty Mindnich

Heather,My husband and I were so thrilled when our military ball pictures arrived. These were by far the best pictures the two of us have ever had done. Not just military ball pictures, but the best pictures of the two of us together period. You were able to capture my husband's genuine smile, which is rare. I have to share this with you as these pictures have shocked not only us, but his mother as well. She recently came to visit us and as I presented her with her 5x7 picture I could see her face light up. She asked how we got him to smile like that, and joked around about him possibly drinking before the photos. My husband has always disliked his picture being taken, since he was a child and becomes irritated in front of a camera. I will never forget that night, as you joked around with him, made him feel comfortable and encouraged him to relax his eyebrows. Anyone that knows him, knows that is where he holds his stress, he laughed at that, because a complete stranger could even pick up on it, as you had. He relaxed and with your encouragement he was able to take the most beautiful pictures we have ever seen or had. I will forever cherish these pictures and brag about the wonderful job you did in allowing him to feel comfortable enough to relax. You did a fabulous job with all of the ball pictures!! I have heard many of our friends openly discussing how much they loved their pictures this year and that they would love to have you back next year! Keep up the great work! You do an amazing job and we were all so very pleased! I will forever be grateful to you for capturing a magical night for us. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!!! I would love to see you again next year at the military ball. I look forward to working with you for a family photo session as well. Thank you again.God Bless,Jessica Hobbs

Working with Heather was great - she makes you feel right at ease so your portrait turns out looking natural and your expressions are relaxed and actually look like the "real you". She also helps you pick the portrait tat shows you in your best light. Overall, I had a great experience with Heather and highly recommend working with her!Best,Valerie Crisp

Heather took pictures at our short event with the help of her assistant, and then we went to her studio to shoot some posed pictures. (Heather's assistant was helpful to her at the event as they worked as a team.) Chuck and I had so much fun having the pictures taken. Heather's continued positive and encouraging comments as she took the pictures helped us enjoy the photo shoots even more ... sometimes we even laughed out loud. Chuck and I have both had our pictures taken professionally in our past, but Heather's studio is the best! When the pictures were ready to present to us, Heather took the time to walk through them and we were able to select the photos we want for our abum. We also chose some portraits for a Memory Album that Heather will design. Heather helped us through the entire process, offering her input on things we may not have seen on some of the proofs. This was a tremendously enjoyable and fun experience all the way around. I would recommend Heather Sams Fine Portraits to anyone wanting professional portraits ... from a photographer who enjoys her work and it shows!!!!!!!!! Thanks Heather.Regards,Cathy and Chuck Larson

I never liked a picture of myself until I met Heather Sams. Her passion is to show the beauty that God created in everyone, is what makes her portrais so amazing. I finally have portraits I love.Heather Diane Tipton

Thank you so much for the opportunity to see your work and to have my portrait done. Your photos are truly a work of Art in the truest form. You have the gift of sensitivity and understanding of people that is very rare in this day and age when money is the object of a business. It is something I have never seen in any other photographer. Your patience with families and children is great and really shows in your photos. I look forward to completing the photo shoot but more to learning from a Master. Again, thank you so much.
