Samantha Davies


Always a dreamer, Sam has done all sorts of jobs, from policing to teaching, but has finally found her passion in Boudoir and Body Confidence Photography in East Sussex, UK. She loves challenges and proving she can do things others doubt she can!

What has been our greatest & favorite achievement so far and why?

Greatest achievement was completing the Tough Guy by myself – it was really hard but I did it!

If you are an entrepreneur, what motivated you to start your own business?

I had enough of doing the kind of job I was expected to do and with the support of my family now run my own photography studio.

What does success mean to you?

Success is enjoying what you do every day.

What is your mantra or favorite saying? (If it's a known quote, please let us know who said it first!)

What’s the best thing that could happen?

What failure taught you the most about life or business? What was the lesson?

I think learning that it was OK to change the type of photography I was doing, and drop the family side of things. It’s not failure, it’s growth. Being in a niche sometimes helps you realise it’s not for you, and that’s ok. Your business will develop over time and change for the better as you develop as a business person.

What's your favorite book - fiction or non-fiction! - in the past year?

I am currently hooked on post apocalyptic fiction – anything by Mike Kraus

If you could teach the world one five-minute lesson, what would it be?

Communication is the answer to everything!

Knowing what you know now, what would you have done differently when you were first starting out?

I would have been brave enough to start with my own style and not do the people pleasing style of photography I though everyone wanted.

What does women's empowerment look like to you in action?

Women who are confident to go and do what they want, wear what they want, live their lives how they want.

What would you tell 19-year-old YOU?

There’s plenty of time

What will 86-year-old you want you to know TODAY?

Don’t worry about the small things

What is your favorite place for our audience to reach you?

What is your favorite quote?

“Loving yourself isn’t vanity – it’s sanity” Andre Gide
