Hi, I'm Haley
I'M A BATON ROUGE-BASED LIFESTYLE PHOTOGRAPHER
Thank you so much for stopping by! I believe one of the most important aspects of my job is being able to connect with my clients. So to do that, I'd like to share a couple of things about myself...
ALL AMERICAN GIRL
I grew up in a small town in central Mississippi and moved to north Georgia when I was 15 with my family. It was there that I met my fantastic husband at the ripe age of 16 and the rest is history! I chose to go to Louisiana State University to major in Vocal Performance. During college, I received my first camera and began casually taking pictures for family and friends. It became something I loved to do but music took the fore front my life so I didn't have the time I needed to take photography seriously. I received my Bachelors Degree in Music in 2012 and after graduation, I married that fantastic husband of mine. We moved to Houston in 2015 where I began singing in the chorus at the Houston Grand Opera as well singing with Christ Church Cathedral in downtown Houston. After the pandemic, we decided to fulfill a lifelong dream of moving back to our beloved Baton Rouge. We relocated here in the Summer of 2020 and are loving every minute. I do still occasionally work in Houston when the opportunity presents itself, but I am loving meeting new clients here in one of my favorite cities in the world!

I could eat Chinese food for the rest of my life and be perfectly content.
I LOVE scary movies. I'm NOT a natural thrill seeker so I get my adrenaline rush in the dark cinematic moment when you're praying she doesnt open the door!
I hate flying and would be completely happy driving 1100 miles to a destination rather than flying there.
I really enjoy trying new beers and visiting local breweries. Its one of mine and my husbands favorite things to do together!
In January 2015, we had our daughter, Leighton, and I decided to dust off the canon and reconnect with my love for photography. She became my perfect little model. With every picture, I began learning more and more about my camera and eventually decided to take on photography as a career. It has provided the best of both worlds. It allows me to stay at home with my daughter and stay connected with people. I'm a very social person and being a photographer gives me the opportunity to let that flourish.
