about whims and joy

My name is Sammy Norasingh and I am the owner of Whims and Joy. I am a Midwest girl, born and raised in Minnesota. I started this photography business because I’ve always believed in following your heart and doing what you love. I’m an artist at heart and love all things creative. Being able to create memories for people and getting people to laugh or smile is what I do best! On my free time, you’ll catch me playing the guitar and writing songs. My inspiration comes from my whimsical and spontaneous outlook on life. I’m an adventurer and I’m always seeking to learn. Love comes first before all else. I enjoy meeting new faces + so if you’re up to chat over coffee– don’t hesitate!

hello there! :)

Lifestyle sessions are perfect for family, couples, proposals, engagements, bridal, and anniversaries. The session includes an hour on location with retouched, high resolution digital files, copyright permission and a private online gallery.
