Courtney and Clay’s wedding photos are FINALLY here! I LOVE these images and believe that they were worth the wait. :) Courtney and Clay are seriously smiling, laughing, and simply GLOWING in every picture. I love it. Here are just a handful of my favorites from their wedding:

Some clients don’t want to do a first look- and that’s okay! But brides, if you don’t want to do a first look before your ceremony with your groom, consider doing a first look with dad! It is truly priceless:

The ceremony was seriously beautiful. Courtney and Clay were smiling ear to ear the whole time. :)

Mr. and Mrs. Savant- thanks for hiring me! I loved being a part of your day. Be sure to call me when it is time for newborn photos (or perhaps a gender reveal shoot?!?!?!) :)

Readers, come back soon- lots of fun things are right up ahead! :)

IMG_4527 copyWell guys, it is ALREADY time again- time to start thinking about your senior portraits.

Seniors are my absolute favorites! I want my senior sessions to be an EXPERIENCE, not just a photo shoot. A process like that takes time and planning; therefore, we need to start working NOW!

I am starting to book 2016 senior model representatives! I need fun, outgoing, well-rounded guys and girls. (& a killer smile doesn’t hurt either ;) ) This past senior season was filled with reps that were beautiful inside and out! I can’t wait to find 2016 candidates that have the same energy and drive!

What’s in it for you, you ask? My senior reps get top quality experiences and photos! Reps will join in on a free fun-filled group photo shoot with the Photography by Hailey rep team, as well as receive a discounted full-length senior session!

Here are the requirements:

  • You must be a 2016 senior.

  • You & your parents must be able to attend a senior rep meeting on Saturday, August 29, 2015.

  • You must be able to par-take in a FREE model session with your fellow senior reps immediately following our meeting on Saturday, August 29, 2015.

  • You must BOOK your FULL senior session with me before our model shoot in August. The session must be completed by the end of 2015. (This session is not free, but all models will receive TEN PERCENT off of the session package.)

  • You must share your photos with friends, family, classmates, etc. (AKA – advertise for me! It will benefit us both. ;) )

  • You must use a photo taken at your session(s) as your profile photo OR cover photo on Facebook through-out your senior year.

  • You & your parents must agree via contract to represent/ advertise/ use ONLY Photography by Hailey during your senior year. (This includes free and paid sessions.) (Exception: school portrait events such as class photos AT SCHOOL, prom photos, etc.)

Now, let’s talk about what will happen if you are chosen!

After I review all of the applications, identify the areas in which I need senior reps, and choose the models, I will contact my chosen reps to start the process. It’ll go something like this:

  • First, the models will be announced.

  • Then, we will discuss all of the important info and book your senior session(s).

  • We will have our model shoot next! This shoot will have all of the fun & energy of a full shoot, but will be restructured to include all of my senior reps! This session (August 29) will feature ALL of Photography by Hailey’s senior models. It will last about 1.5 hours and will be shot at one location. During this time, I will capture photos of the senior reps individually and in groups. (I will inform you of the exact time, location, and outfit details after announcing the 2016 Senior Models.) After the session, I will chose the 5 best photos of you, digitally retouch and edit them, and send you the link to download them.

  • Then, we will shoot your FULL session! Senior Models receive 10% off of the normal rate of this shoot AND get first pick of my senior session dates. This session MUST be completed before the end of 2015. This session will last up to 2 hours. This is where you really let your creative juices flow! Bring as many outfits as you want. Come up with tons of ideas. Pack a million and two props. GO WILD! (For info about session flow, session prices, digital photo copies, etc. refer to www.photobyhailey.com.)

  • Finally, here is the best part!!!!! Through out the steps above, each senior spokesperson will be working his/her little butt off right?! Well, this is where all of that gets really fun… As well as receiving numerous freebies and discounts, my senior models could receive a FREE shoot for him/her and friends! The Senior Model that brings me the MOST business by March 2016 will earn an AWESOME session with their best buds! This session comes with digital copies of the best photos, all of which you can share with your friends. You will also have unlimited printing rights with this session! Talk about a way to end high school with a bang! (This session will take place during April or May 2016.)

  • Bonus: Share this article on Facebook, Twitter, etc! Once the reps are chosen, the senior that shared this article / advertised for senior reps the MOST will get a FREE mini album- a FAB $99 value!!

*Be sure to tell all of those who book me because of YOUR referral to tell me so at the time of their session. That way, I can keep track of who is in the lead & in the end find out who is the winner of the Session Giveaway!

For weeks now, my family and I have been trying to get together for a quick family portrait. We picked out outfits, props, and locations. And then it rained. And rained. And rained. For literally about 3 weeks. This past weekend, we FINALLY were able to capture a few quick pictures of the 4 of us thanks to Ben behind the camera (thanks boo!) and Emily working a reflector at high noon! Here is the result:
