Samantha Kalkopf | Milwaukee empowerment photographer

When you've lived a life like Samantha's, you learn never to take anything - or anyone - for granted, and that nothing is guaranteed in this lifetime. Samantha lost her daughter when she was six months pregnant. She had her oldest daughter when she was 19 and raised her on her own until she met her husband. She describes herself as a "dreamer, lover, fighter, giver" and "campaigner" and even with her not telling you this, you will know the instant you meet her because of the sparkle in her eyes and her determination to live every day to its fullest.

She wears her heart on her sleeve and as such, was a beautiful person inside and out to photograph. But don't just take my word for it! You can view all of the beautiful photos from Samantha's empowerment session with me below.
