My name is Samantha St. Jean and I am a photographer located in the heart of southwest Virginia in Blacksburg. I am currently available for engagement photos, senior pictures, pregnancy portraits, or portraits of any kind. I will also offer framed landscapes with scripture passages calligraphed on the matting through my Etsy shop.  

Growing up I always felt like an artistic person but without the real ability to draw or paint it wasn't until I started taking pictures that I realized I had found my niche! To me, taking a photograph isn't just something you do on a vacation or on birthdays. Photography is having that ability to capture the beauty and specialness of life. There is no feeling like the one you get when you take that perfect photo, the one that truly captures the personality of the subject or the beauty of the moment. A good photo should take your breath away and bring you back to the moment it was taken, giving you the rare opportunity to relive a fleeting moment. It is because of this meaning that I chose the name I did for my business. Genesis is the story of creation, in all of its beauty and awesomeness, and that is the same creation I aim to capture in my photography.

I am very much looking forward to sharing some of your life's most precious moments with you and I am very excited that you have taken the time to look at this website and get to know a little about me. For more information or to set up an appointment send me an email. I would love to talk to you!
