Sammie R Studios: Capturing Moments & Making a Difference

by TogDrop

A Journey from Music to Photography

Sammie R. is more than just a photographer; she’s a cornerstone of her community, using her talent to spread joy and make a difference. Born and raised in the heartland of Iowa, Sammie’s journey into photography began unexpectedly but beautifully. With a degree in music performance, her passion initially lay in melodies and harmonies. However, fate had other plans when she reached for a camera during playful outings with her two children in the serene parks of California.

What started as a simple hobby quickly blossomed into a profound love affair with photography. After applying for a position at a local hospital photographing newborns, her husband received Air Force orders to move back home. Specializing in children, senior, and family photography, Sammie’s lens captures the essence of childhood wonder, the excitement of milestones, and the warmth of familial bonds.

Her involvement with Make-A-Wish IA is a testament to her compassionate spirit, as she helps fulfill the dreams of children facing life-threatening illnesses through the magic of photography.

Additionally, Sammie is an integral part of the Girl Scouts of NE Outreach program, using her creativity to inspire young girls to discover their strengths and potential. Her commitment to her faith-based community shines through in her work, as she uses her artistry to capture the beauty and resilience of the human spirit.

Sammie’s Review of TogDrop Solutions

Recently, Sammie moved into a new studio and is excited to set up her TogDrop system in the new space. Here’s what she had to say about TogDrop Solutions:

“Such a simple, easy system! It is not only lightweight, but it is ridiculously easy to use AND cuts time setting up IN HALF! The pole system is perfect for the photographer without a magnet wall or on the go. It makes setting up backdrop rooms a breeze, and I look forward to taking it to all my various locations.”
