Guest Blogger: Samantha Elizabeth

Today I am featuring Samantha from Samantha Elizabeth. She runs a lifestyle blog that is filled with beautiful photos! I was able to ask Samantha some questions:




What inspired you to start a blog?
I started a blog for many reasons...one was that starting my own photography business meant that I needed to “stay connected” and doing that meant opening a Facebook Page  - Samantha Elizabeth  and of course a blog came along with the territory :) I also felt like my clients and those out there needed to know who Samantha Elizabeth really was...I wanted to share my thoughts, fashion, tips & tricks, DIY’s and much more...a blog allowed me to do that and to network with others who had similar interests. 


How did you become interested in photography?
I have always been interested in photography...growing up I was a HUGE tomboy...I had a bowl-cut hair do...I sported boys jeans and shirts...I really didn’t have much “style”....I was awkward...with glasses, freckles and a body that just didn’t want to grow into itself...I don’t exactly remember when it happened, but I realized that clothing and fashion were....FUN. I remember it was like this crazy weird awakening...the next thing you knew I started to look more “feminine” :) Once I grew into my own at about age 17...I decided to start doing pageants...I won my first one...and that threw me into the realm of modeling and photography....from there it has evolved and has always been an art form that I find appealing. I love the creativity behind the lens...and the different things you can do when editing. I believe in showcasing natural beauty...I try to keep my photography very natural...I don’t add crazy effects...maybe some vintage ones here and there...but I like to keep it clean and the way you would see it in real life.



How would you define your style?
My style from a fashion sense...would be a clash of a few things....kind of like...girlie meets, bohemian, classic, but simple and fresh.  Does that make sense? The cool thing about style...is it can be super adaptive...sometimes I can’t really say I have a “style” its more of a feeling...depending on how I feel at a certain time in my life, it sometimes creates the fashion ensemble for the day...lately I have been feeling more of the bohemian, hippie chic. With head bands, rings, bangles and all that fun stuff!




What are your favorite items in your closet right now?
My favorite items in my closet right now would have to be a coral colored crocheted scarf that my grandmother and I made, a black 1920’s authentic vintage fringe skirt dress, and my sweat pants :) 



What do you love most about blogging?
I love meeting new people and finding different ways to share our ideas and creativity. I love reading about the different journeys people are on in life and seeing how their blog reflects that. I love that someone across the world can see what I have to say for the day, and it might change their mood or their thoughts on something, and vise versa. There is a calming feeling knowing theres others outside of your own little laptop world who have the same interests, and passions that you do. I love to meet them...and then do guest blog posts like you and I are doing ;)
