Hi, I’m Samantha, the blonde fool behind the lens and Tink&Lulu Photography. 

Typically known for my black heart, there are three things that make me all mooshy and sob, an epic wedding, a newborn and my boyfriend telling me I can't buy more shoes. 

I'm a sucker for romance and chivalry; I love nothing more than being given the opportunity to document real love. Whether it's swaddling your newest creation or photographing your family, I am here for all your big love moments.

"Rose and fireflies dancing in the spiderwebs. Talking for hours and dozing off with the tv on. The record skips a few times and we pick a new song to fall asleep to. Morning coffee, a few minutes late to work"

"The magical hour between dawn and morning, the fog in the air and the dew on the grass. The slow hum of traffic and the cool breeze that signify the joy of a new day."

"Walking through the woods feeling that crisp air as magical light of dawn sets in. Flowers, trees, greenery surrounding us. Music playing softly in the distance and we choose to sleep just a little longer."

Photography and my love for it began in high school when my art teacher suggested photography as a medium for a self-portrait assignment. From that day, many an hour was spent in a darkroom developing negatives, experimenting with different techniques and pestering my parents to buy me a camera.
Photography had always remained a hobby until the birth of my first daughter. I saw how quickly she grew and changed and wanted to capture every moment.

That was when the light bulb flickered and I realised I needed to help others to capture these ever so brief and fleeting moments. 
When I’m not behind the lens I am a busy mum and step mum to four confident and sassy girls. I try to wash, fold and put the clothes away all in the same day. Coffee is my energy source and chocolate is the key to my heart.

a closer look at

Sipping chartreuse and green tea while looking at the most perfect white subway tile and hand painted signs. Driving through the mountains to Portland reminiscing about the best memories back home. Cozy sweaters, vintage demin, and Pabst while telling one of a kind love stories. The trials and tribulations of love, joy, and happiness. Lastly, champagne brunch and avocado toast while surrounded by the finest exposed brick, dreamcatchers, and maps to our souls. Dreamcatchers, macrame and 100 Days of Summer. Anthropologie trips and walks on the beach, love letters and secret admirers. Fall breeze, flannels, and hot cocoa. Whales and dinosaurs and handmade crafts. Salvage denim, antique leather bags, and the first time we watched Moonrise Kingdom. 

The slow hum of traffic and the cool breeze that signify the joy of a new day.
