Meet Hailey…

I’ve always been a documenter. I have dozens of old videos, hundreds of pictures, and a closet full of memory boxes to prove it. Okay, so maybe “hoarder” is a more accurate term, but “documenting” sounds better. One of my favorite things to do is look through photo albums, especially ones that my sweet great-grandmother (aka “MamMaw Hagler”) owned. Those photos tell the story of growing up in a big family, life during the Great Depression, and wonderful moments frozen in time. I can easily get lost in old albums for hours.

Because of this, I strongly believe in the power of a printed product. In an age where hard drives crash, CD’s get scratched, and technology consistently becomes outdated; seeing those gorgeous memories hanging on the wall or flipping through a custom designed, high quality album is priceless.

My introduction to the art of photography began several years ago, simply as a desire to capture my new baby’s life… the beautiful and the messy. Boy, has there been plenty of messy! I wanted more than just the traditional portraits. I wanted to have images of my baby living. And so a passion was born.

As my younger sister grew up (we’re 14 years apart), I also discovered a passion for high school senior photography. I absolutely love making these kids feel like a model for a day, as well as providing some beautiful images that represent who they are at this moment in time. Often these seniors become like extended family for me. We keep in contact, and I love getting to watch them find their wings as they enter college and adulthood.

What I do is so much more than a job. It gives me sincere joy to spend time with my clients, while also providing them with images that will last a lifetime. Taking the time to  get to know my clients, I do my best to capture the essence of who they are, turning real life moments into beautiful artwork to be enjoyed for years to come. I want to tell a story… their story.

Whether it’s cuddling with that new bundle of sweetness, documenting a milestone, or simply enjoying the here and now with your family… all of these moments are beautiful. And I approach each with excitement and heartfelt respect.

In addition, I enjoy capturing the families with special needs children. Because my son’s life has been affected by autism, I get the extra understanding and patience it often takes to truly capture these wonderfully special kids’ personalities.

Rest assured that no matter what the occasion or circumstance, I’ll be there excited and ready to tell your story while providing you with gorgeous artwork to be enjoyed for a lifetime.
