Welcome to Lou Lou’s Photography. My birth given name is Samantha, but growing up my Grandmother would call me “Lou Lou.”  What better way to honor our relationship than to name my small business after the nickname she gave me?
Quick bio – I was born and raised in Fargo, ND. I am married & have two energetic boys.
Photography is not my job. This is not your standard 9-5 – I LIVE and BREATHE photos. Take a moment to glance at my favorite photographs located below. I hope you not only see but feel the passion I put into every single session. I firmly believe that if you take a leap of faith and book with me – you will not regret it!
Make sure to head to my contact page so we can chat! xoxo

Mommy & Me

“Everything was amazing! Where do I start?! She is extremely easy to work with from booking, to all of her tips and recommendations she sends out (I legit would have forgotten to shave my legs if she didn’t remind me😆), and the actual shoot was amazing. I left completely confident and happy that she captured everything perfectly! And she most definitely did. I only cried like 45 times today’s just looking at our pictures! She is so sweet, silly, and AWESOME!! Not many people can get my stubborn 3.5 year old to crack. And she DID! He told me he had so much fun after we left. That alone is worth it lol. I highly recommend this lovely lady!! We most definitely will be back. 💗💗💗 Did I mention our gallery was complete in less than 2 days. 😱 Again. She is the bomb.com You won’t regret booking with her I promise. 💋”


“Sam is just simply amazing and helpful! I reached out to her wanting a Valentine’s Day shoot for my little and husband and she went above and beyond in her efforts. She had the perfect setup for us with only a few ideas given from me. It was beautiful! She was so fun and never gave up when our little wouldn’t smile! She kept on trying! She gave a sneak peek of our photos the same day I mean who doesn’t love that?! She is so organized and fun to work with. I will definitely be a loyal returning client and friend to her! ❤️ Book with her NOW! She will not disappoint!”


“By far the best photographer we’ve had! She is extremely talented and I am very impressed with the way she handled the craziness of two puppies, communicated with my husband and I, and prepared us prior to the session. She has great customer service (we got our edited photos in less than 12 hours!!) and a relaxing atmosphere that made us feel comfortable and at ease! We have only good things to say about Sam!! My husband and I have discussed how awesome our session was several times since leaving the studio!!”


“Sam is flexible, friendly, considerate, and professional. With the Covid-19 stress for our graduate, we wanted some last-minute grad photos in his cap and gown and she was more than willing to help us out and made the entire process painless. We would highly recommend her.”


“This was our second time working with Sam and I would still highly recommend her to anyone who needs family pictures. She does a great job working with my girls and getting them to smile which isn’t the easiest task to do. I’m excited to continue working with her in the future!”
