aBOUT ME

My name is Haley and I'm twenty-five years old. I am happily married and we have five beautiful children. When I am not at a session or editing, I am hanging out with my kids. My hobbies include spending time with my family, reading, drawing, painting, and crafting.

I became interested in photography about eight years ago. In high school, I took a few photography classes to learn the basics. I also took college courses to learn Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator. I did not go to school for photography but am self-taught and have many years of experience under my belt.

I started officially taking clients and doing photography professionally in July of 2011, just a couple of months after graduating high school. I can't explain how blessed I feel to be able to capture such special images  for people. My clients let me into some of the most personal moments of their lives and I feel like the luckiest person ever for that. Photos of my family are some of the most treasured things I have, so I am happy to be able to provide quality images for others as well.

I am a member of the International Association of Professional Birth Photographers, Hearts Apart (volunteer photography for military families), the Tiny Sparrow Project, and The F.I.L.M. Project (both volunteer photography for families dealing with life threatening illnesses).
