"At the end of my pregnancy, I started looking for a photographer who could capture my last "blessed weeks". Luckily, I found Ewa!!! She responded, promptly, to my e-mail, and answered all of my questions. That really mattered to me. As a working Mom, I understand the importance of being efficient and reliable. I was so pleased by her suggestions about everything; from the photo-session location, to the wardrobe. From the first meeting, we connected. I felt as if I had known Ewa for a very long time! She was able to capture very sweet moments of my family; not easy, with our two and one-half year old son, who can't stay still. After the successful maternity-photo session, I knew that I would like to work, again, with Ewa on a newborn-photo session. So we did! I was amazed at how much patience she had with my little angel Emilka. She was able to calm her down, and take amazing pictures of her with her big brother. I couldn't be more thankful to her, and if I could I would give her 10 stars!!! We look forward to working with Ewa in the future!"

"Ewa is amazing! I was laughing and crying and smiling while looking over our photo gallery. We had a tough time in the beginning of the shoot with getting our little one to relax and smile, and not only was Ewa patient with us and gave my little one the time she needed to "open up" and have fun, but she also captured some amazing shots of the baby before she was ready to have fun. All of Ewa's photos are simply magical! The colors are stunning and her ability to capture our authentic selves is unbelievable. Just breathtaking! I can't wait to sit and pick which ones will be ours and then to share those with our loved ones! And beyond that, I can't wait to do another photo shoot with Ewa!!"

"I have worked with Ewa twice now. She is such a wonderful professional and a pleasure to work with. She made me feel secure and wonderful as well and making friends with my baby to get some smiles while taking nursing portraits.Beyond the session she does great and quick post production. Overall a wonderful photographer with fantastic customer service!"

"Ewa is beyond talented. My girlfriend and I had our family portraits taken by her, and we couldn't be happier with the results. Her work with natural light is amazing, and she is clearly talented with post production. We will definitely be hiring Ewa for more portraits in the future, and will continue to rave about her work. If you're looking for an ultra talented photographer who is easy to work with and has a warm, sincere attitude - Ewa Samples Photography is the way to go."

"Best decision ever! Not only does she take amazing pictures, but she is lovely to interact with. always prompt with her responses. She was very willing to work with us. She was really great with my son and was extremely patient. She also covered his birthday party and I was really impressed with her attention to details. She covered EVERYTHING! Captured all the moments, all my guests have tones of pictures and I absolutely love every picture she took. I couldn't have been happier and will definitely be asking her to take pictures of my family in the future!"

"Ewa is an amazing photographer and I highly recommend her! This is the 2nd time we asked Ewa to take our family pictures and she delivered way above our expectations. She's able to capture every emotion, every moment with a single snapshot. Her work is beautiful. The pictures are very artistic but at the same time very natural (not posy). She made our session a very pleasant moment for our entire family!"
Caroline, Los Altos, CA
"We got our Maternity pics taken by Ewa and are incredibly pleased with the results! She did an excellent job and was very professional. I love that there was no time limit to our session. She is very patient and thorough and made sure to include everything we asked and even much more. I highly recommend her! We could not have asked for a better photographer! I am in love with every single picture!We are looking forward to more photo sessions in the future!"

"Ewa is simply amazing! I am very picky with pictures, as I love to photograph myself, but Ewa has the right eye for creating wonderful pictures and capturing the moment. Ever since we had her for the first time she became our family photographer and we use her for every occasion: Newborn shoots, family shoots, portraits etc. She is wonderful in dealing with kids, very patient and kind.She is super creative, finding the right setting and captures and edits the pictures so they become everlasting memories. I can highly recommend her and I am looking forward to many more shoots to come :-) "

Ewa gives directions but is open to suggestions, she is not intrusive – this is great because she captures very tender and real moments that are not rehearsed. My favorite aspect about her work is precisely that candidness of the pictures. Things just flow naturally… I really enjoyed the experience! Ewa was very relaxed, super friendly and creative. She works with natural light and has a great eye for details…she captured some very precious moments that we will cherish forever. She also made a video for us that is beyond adorable! We highly recommend Ewa’s studio and will most definitely use her services again as our boys grow!

I am completely in love with these photos! Thank you so very much for taking such gorgeous shots of me and my girls! You are an incredibly generous soul; you give so much of yourself during these sessions and you can see that beauty in the shots you take. not every photographer can see the fragility, strength, beauty and essence of the moment, but you can; just amazing!!
Olga, San Jose
Ewa did a wonderful job in capturing our family! We love her photos and everyone who sees them is asking who the photographer is! She took photos when our baby boy was only 4 days old and again for a cake smash for his 1st birthday. We would highly recommend her and are looking forward to more photo sessions in the future!

Halloween Photo Booth The Girls @ Los Altos
First of all, thank you so much for all who stopped by The Girls@Los Altos last Monday for trick-or-treating and our Halloween Photo Booth. We had an amazing time creating wonderful memories for your and your little ones. This is our second time co-hosting an event. It looks like it’s not the last time. Each time we come together we have more and more ideas of how to serve our clients better, and how to make the experience of working with us more fun and interesting.
The foot traffic we got last Monday exceeded our expectation!!! Thank you all! We had a blast. I hope we were able to create wonderful images for you so you can cherish them for years to come.
Despite the craziness and sometimes not more then 10 seconds to work with some of the cute trick-or-treaters, I was able to “catch” at least one good photograph for all the attendees.
Below the collage and below the post you can find a link to a gallery with all the photographs from the photo booth. To get your images, please select a particular image and click on the “buy image” button. Repeat with all the photographs you want to get. You will not be charged anything for downloading the pictures.
Our initial agreement with Cecilia from The Girls was to provide the attendees with 1 free photographs and the rest would be available for purchase. However, having to work with so many kids in such a short period of time, where they did not have a chance to connect with me and get more relaxed and playful, as well as having our photo booth set up knocked over a few times (it happens all the time, during events where I work with kids), I have decided to provide all of the pictures for totally free. Some of you might have only one picture available to download anyway. However in many cases there is more then one awesome photograph!
