Who we are - What we do

Studio 606 was born when two local photographers decided to join forces in Somerset, Kentucky and bring more awareness to our local community and small businesses in the 606. We love living here, and what’s better than working with your best friend to provide the dream team of photography services. Studio 606 is founded by Linkes Photography and Photography by Samantha Hawkins.

Things that make us, us


Photography by Samantha Hawkins

Samantha Hawkins

I never knew how photography would end up shaping my life. In 2011, I began my journey by photographing all of my nieces and nephews because I knew those little moments would eventually be something we would reminisce. In 2015, I took the leap and opened my first studio in downtown Somerset and haven’t looked back since.

My joy of photography stems from the beauty of being. I love to celebrate new life and the growth that takes place each and every year. It’s so rewarding to look back and see where the families that I photographed in 2011 are now.

  • Ava Jaymes

  • Coca-Cola

Linkes Photography

Taylor Linkes

I started my first business, Linkes Photography back in 2014 during my year in the Young Entrepreneurs Academy as a senior in high school. Since then my business has turned from something on the side, to my passion, life and career. 

I truly believe that when you see an image, you should not only see it, but feel the emotions that lie within it. I'm inspired by new places, romance and pretty light. I'm so passionate about intentional living and people who appreciate the little things in life.

I hope we get to meet you, but until then enjoy viewing our work of the people who make this life possible for us.  We are full of gratitude for everyone we have met, places we have been and relationships we have built together.
