Why choose me over any other photographer?
I'm here to make you comfortable first and foremost.
I treat your family exactly how I would hope mine would be treated. I want to make you comfortable from the start. I will work with you to select the perfect location, outfit, and timing for your shoot. Day of I'm there with gentle posing while letting you live in the moment and capturing the genuine love you have for your family. I keep my workload low so I can edit your photos within a week to avoid anxious waiting. I also provide an abundance of images so YOU can choose your favorites, not me.
I am here every step of the way. I have an outfit guide and would love to ensure you feel confident with what you will wear. I will ensure locations match the "vibe" you are after, and work with you to plan the time that will give you the most flattering lighting. You do not need to stress in the planning department!
I'm autistic and a bit awkward because of it. I'm here to make us all feel at ease. I am a very short and not at all intimidating gal. We're all starting off on a little awkward footing but I promise by the end we will all be laughing and chatting together. I'm here to guide you as much as needed in posing and help with great hand placements and move those flyaway hairs. But I also love to let you guys just be in the moment and capture it authentically.
I don't believe in WEEKS of waiting for your photos. You've already waited weeks or months since booking to actually get them done! As a client I know I would get so anxious checking my email endlessly for 3-6 weeks for a regular session. Not here. I only take on what I can edit within that week. You will always receive your photos as quickly as I can. Some weeks that is next day, but always within the week.
I capture maternity, newborn and family sessions
Capturing your family as it is now
So often we look back and think "wow that year went fast". Don't let that year go by without capturing how your family is right NOW. Maybe you are newly married and enjoying the loving honeymoon stage, expecting your first child, or maybe your son has 6 teeth missing and has the silliest grin. Don't miss your opportunity to invest in images that will be here well after those life stages conclude. I'm here to capture it all. Not just the easy "couples" only sessions (although, I do love my couples!).
Our kids grow up so fast. Don't let these memories slip away. Your mind can get blurry with time. Yet your photos will always be there, carrying your most precious life moments.
What I do
Of any form, dating, proposing, newly engaged, a small wedding, or just wanting cute photos together.
Pregnant? OMG I am SO excited for you. I have a lot of L&D knowledge so not only do I love to capture this stage of your lives (pregnancy announcements or maternity) but I also deeply love to help you with any pregnancy related concerns or giggles.
NB + Baby
I say so many sessions are my favorite... But truly nothing captures my heart more than an in-home newborn session. There is something so magic about being in YOUR space and the vulnerability and love of new parents. If in-home isn't an option we can also go outdoors or find a good studio.
I love kids. Your screaming toddler will not phase me. Your sassy teens, no biggie. I've taught for 7 years, I love kids of all ages and I do not judge anything thrown at me. What I will assure you, is we will get the photos you deserve!
Hayley is PHENOMENAL! We have had a few sessions with her this past year and I wouldn’t change anything. She goes above and beyond during the session to make sure you get amazing photos. During a session, she even held our dogs leash in one hand and was snapping photos of my husband and I in the other, she truly is a gem. Hayley has quickly become part of our family and I wouldn’t want anyone else taking our photos. If you’re hesitating to book, you need to just to experience her work and personality.
