Welcome friend! 

I'm Samantha, the photographer and educator behind Elah Tree. Here, WE CREATE STORIES, build dreams, talk business, and create the pretties pictures for your business, blog, shop, and home!

Every dream starts somewhere; whether you want to open an Etsy shop, run your own lifestyle blog, or serve others through your small business. My dream as a creative started very similar to that. I was a portrait photographer, ran an Etsy shop, ran a lifestyle blog, and now I’m here to serve you through small business. I know where you’ve been and I’m dreaming big dreams for where you are going!

Ready to start your photography journey now? Head over to our photography resource page, full of tips from; tricks, techniques, props, gear, and more! 

I’m with you... to the end of the line.

We all have our own story to share. Here is a bit of mine: I'm deeply passionate about loving on others, covering them in grace and encouraging them in all their hearts desires. My journey as a creative started in photography and photography has continued to be foundational in my creative process. Over the years as my aspirations developed I knew that I wanted to continue to tell stories visually through photography, but I also wanted to meet people right where they were and help them create the photos they have always wanted; while providing tips, resources, and business opportunities to get their dreams off the ground.
