Heirloom Portraits


pass down to your children

Le Papillon by Samantha Jay is a stress free family portrait experience that focuses on getting heirloom quality images hanging in your home to be enjoyed for years to come.
After almost of decade of photographing weddings, I was being called to create a luxury portrait experience with the same level of care and planning my wedding clients came to love.  You won't have to worry about wardrobe and styling or how to get your images beautifully hanging in your home, I do all of the work so you won't have to!  Your job is to be present with your children and enjoy this moment in time while I capture it for future generations.

Hello! I'm Samantha

the process

01. Wardrobe & Planning

Once your session is reserved with me, we will meet for your planning appointment.  I will hand style you and your children from the client closet, plan out the session location and start mapping out artwork preferences for you home. 

02. Session Day

03. Viewing & Ordering

04. Artwork Delivery

The day of your session I will provide wardrobe for mama and kiddos and your job is to enjoy this time with your family!  As a mama myself, I carefully pose your baby and work my magic with your sweet toddler to keep the session running smoothly.  No need to stress, I will capture your beautiful babies just as they are and pose your family in a natural way that encourages beautiful moments.

Once your gallery is ready, we will meet again to premiere your images and create custom artwork for your home.  I will design custom gallery walls for your home and we will walk through album image selections. You will place your final artwork order at this meeting.

About 6-10 weeks later, your artwork will be ready for pickup to grace the walls of your home as your family grows!
