My passion for family photography was birthed by my desire to not miss one moment with my family. Every season is so unique, special, and priceless. And it goes by so fast! 


Nothing feels better than capturing those special moments so you can treasure them for a lifetime.  


I want to give you the same gift of excellence that I would give to my own family. Don't miss a season!

Sam is an absolutely amazing photographer. He was wonderful to work with as he was very attentive, kind, and enthusiastic with our family during the shoot. Our album of finished photographs took our breath away! He is a true artist.

      We are THRILLED with our experience and our photos. Sam was incredible. We have a large family (10 kids) and he was so patient and fun. My kids are usually no fun on family picture day, but even my most difficult kiddos had a great time and cooperated. We were vacationing in the area and if we ever go back we will definitely use Sam again and would highly recommend him to anyone!

         We could not be happier with our family photo session with Samuel Gonzales! We live in San Diego but were going to be in Park City for the holidays. Sam made it so easy to coordinate times and location, even shooting out session on Christmas Eve!! The photos turned out beautiful!! Truly capturing the multiple personalities in our family. I couldn’t recommend more!

My husband booked family photos while we were on vacation this year. We met Sam and his daughter in NYC for family pictures and it was nothing short of amazing. We have a 5 year old little boy and every picture is just incredible all thanks to Sam’s skill and patience. Our session was not only fun but very comfortable and easy. Sam scouted locations before we got there to get the perfect shots. We got our pictures back incredibly fast within 2 days! I will be forever grateful for these memories!! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. If you’re searching for a photographer you don’t need to look any further, book Sam now!

Sam is by far the best photographer my family has ever worked with. His photos were great and something we'll cherish forever.

Hands down the best family portrait session we’ve ever had. Samuel made the whole process painless, even for the little kids. Our pictures are gorgeous. Great mix of posed and candid shots. Honestly, we are so grateful to have found him and will continue to recommend him over and over. Thank you, Samuel!

The most beautiful family photos! He was so skilled at getting my little ones to pay attention and keep the smiles going the whole time. I was very impressed, beginning to end. And the edits were fantastic, and in great time, too. 10/10 would recommend!

    By far the best service you will ever receive. When Samuel met up with us we got his undivided attention and by the way his attention to detail sets him far above the rest. I actually feel bad for other photographers because Samuel sets the bar so high. Seriously guys if you want a great experience and world class photo quality, go to Samuel Gonzales Photography!

      Samuel was amazing with our photo shoot! He works great with kids, especially 2 year olds. There is never a shot that he won’t consider taking and he is so accommodating. He isn’t afraid to get a little dirty to get the perfect picture and will go above and beyond to get that candid photo or posed photo. I have nothing but great things to say about Sam and how he makes the photo session an amazing and fun experience! Not only is it a fun time, the results are nothing short of extraordinary and you get all the photos from the session!

      We had the best family photo shoot ever with Samuel Gonzalez!! He was excellent to work with! He was totally flexible when we had to reschedule due to Montana's unpredictable weather. We weren't sure what kinds of pictures we were going for, and he went above and beyond to find us the perfect location and give us a variety of poses to choose from. He was amazing with our 5 kids!! Extremely patient and laid back, while being professional at the same time. He snapped some great candid shots of our older kids playing while mom and dad were cheering up the little ones. Definitely a great experience. I can't wait until we get to work with him again!!

- The Kellys

    First photographer that embraces the chaos and captures the novelettish emotion. He had more patience than anyone I have met within my years. We absolutely loved him.

- The Roberts


          Great photographer! Sam captured the moments in our family photos, exactly what we were looking for! Very calm and easy going made it really relaxed especially when you have 3 kiddos running around! We will be booking our next photos with Sam! 

- The Gormans

     Sam is THE BEST!! So relaxed, professional, kind, and fun. We had the best time taking pictures with him and they turned out fabulous. You won't be disappointed 😊.

        Sam and Kit are amazing! Their hearts truly show through when capturing photos. They were the most fun, best quality and the highest of professionalism! We feel so blessed to have had Sam and Kit give us such wonderful memories that we will cherish forever!

      Sam and his lovely wife Kit are such a fun team to work with! They thought of everything for our crazy, multi-cultural, still-winter family shots...and helped us have a blast and keep all our extremeties in the process! Want amazing shots/memories without the stress of trying to get them captured? Choose Samuel Gonzales Photography!
