The Birth of Logan Carter


“Having the birth of my Son documented was a new and daunting thing for me, something I didn't quite understand in the beginning. But having seen what Sam did, I regret not doing it with my first birth. There are moments captured where I didn't even know a picture was being taken, that's just how discreet she was. And tactful as well. It is such a personal thing, giving birth, but not one picture made me feel uncomfortable. I can go back and relive one of the most beautiful days and experiences I have ever had in my life.
That day was captured so beautifully that it’s enough to make me broody again lol, just looking at them. Having said all of that, to any expecting Mom’s or anyone thinking of having a baby soon. Please do yourself a favour and book to have your Birth Story done with Samantha Squire-Howe from Twinkle Star Photography. The Birth happens so fast, and is an experience that no one can describe, but I have pictures telling the magical story! And I am so grateful to have had that opportunity.” – Taryn Jonathan

The Birth of Mason


Samantha captured my home water birth exactly how I had hoped she would. I requested a documentary style shoot so that I could blog about birthing naturally and she did not leave out a single detail. It blows my mind that she knows how to capture exactly the right moments and can pre-empt the ones that will be full of emotion. Sam did such an amazing job capturing my birth that one of her photos was featured on multiple blogs and sites across the world! To say I am ecstatic with Sam's work and service is an understatement. I highly recommend her to anyone having a baby, no matter the method of birth. Thank you Sam!" - Romy Paull

The Birth of Abigail


I had an absolutely amazing experience with Sam. She was great fun to be around and put me totally at ease. Sam took maternity, birth and newborn photos and captured the loveliest moments that I now get to revisit and cherish forever. I love the photos as much as I enjoyed the experience of having Sam around to photograph them! I highly recommend her services to anyone looking for a photo journalistic approach to capturing the beauty of everyday miracles and preserving them forever." - Samantha Horwitz

The Birth of Nathaniel


Sam is awesome. Bubbly, friendly and open-minded. Very easy to chat and plan with. When she is photographing though she 'disappears' quietly doing what she does and capturing the moment without dictating, directing or distracting it - which is crucial for a birth or golden hour newborn moments. For other more regular shoots she is calm, comfortable and not at all intimidating, so even people like me, who can feel awkward in front of camera, feel completely relaxed and natural. Her photos are beautiful and capture the essence of a moment, experience and person perfectly. I'd definitely recommend her. Thanks Sam! ♥" - Jane Fraser

"I've had the pleasure of being on the other side of Samantha's lens twice now and she manages to perfectly capture intimate, otherwise unseen, moments. I'm camera-shy and she made me feel relaxed and completely lose my self-consciousness. She is a consummate professional and a supremely talented artist. I have nothing but love for this warm, sensitive soul and would highly recommend her if you want to immortalise your milestones. ♥️ - Desiree-Anne Martin
