How does it feel to be named the best photographer in the area?

“I am SHOOK! To say the least, speechless would sum up how I feel,” Samantha Turner said. “I cannot thank all those that voted enough; this is such an honor.”

What do you want people to know about a boudoir photography session if they’re considering one? 

“If you're considering boudoir, I highly suggest doing your research,” Turner said. “Boudoir is an investment and finding a photographer that you vibe with is key. Most sessions are vulnerable, not only are you revealing skin but often a piece of yourself. So having that comfort with the photographer is what will send your experience to the next level.”

Why are people so interested in boudoir photography right now?


“I strive to show women that boudoir is about women empowerment,” she said. “Boudoir is not ‘just’ a photoshoot, it truly can change your life.”

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
