Hawley, the Photographer:
I believe images are like beautiful, well-worn keys. They can unlock doors to cherished memories and times in life, helping us to reflect on all we love. You deserve to have appealing, compelling and striking images of yourself and those you love - and to have the process be un-intimidating, enjoyable, and stress free. I strive to provide customer service AND images that are outstanding and unparalleled.
I started shooting film when I was in high school (before digital photography even existed!), developing prints in the darkroom. I have studied a diverse array of mediums, and apply my artistic training and vision to my photography.
As an extrovert who loves meeting new people, I seek to make people feel at ease in a group setting and engaged in an activity. I love to my clients of all ages feel comfortable and confident in front of the lens, while guiding them into compelling, natural, flattering positions and situations. I work diligently to provide stellar service to all of my clients, and strive to provide lasting, beautiful portraits.
Hawley, the Wife & Mama:
My husband and I met in France. We were close friends for years -until he wrote me a love letter 7 years after we met. We were married the following year! He's from San Francisco, and I'm from Washington, DC. (To read our story more in depth, visit the Lace & Loyalty blog here.) After living in the DC area, Connecticut, and South Carolina, we moved to Birmingham in August 2014. We moved here with our two daughters, Eden and Zoë and absolutely love this magic city, as well as the incredible church where my husband works.
