HEY! I'M HALI!

I’ve been an artist since I was a kid with a crayon and a lover of photography since I owned my first point and shoot camera. I always knew I was meant to be a photographer, but it wasn't until my hubby snapped this photo to the right on July 16, 2012 that I took the leap. "Going Home Day". And on the day we brought our little boy home... my beautiful journey began.

 

While photography sparks my artistic passion, it's my family that truly inspires me! I'm a mom to a spunky little boy, a super snuggly baby girl and two fluffy kitties. My amazing hubby has supported me every step of the way. From being Mr. Mom on the weekends while I work, to pulling off on the side of the road to scout locations and snap some pics of our babes. I'm a real girlie girl, but rarely have my hair down and I haven't worn heels since I found out I was pregnant in 2011. I love good music, random dance parties with my babes and really cheesy TV. I'm truly lucky for the life I have and for my loving family and friends.

 

Because of the joy people in my life bring me, I am drawn to a more natural feel and honest view of photography. The unsung moments we are usually involved in and rarely a witness to. I want our kids to look back one day and remember their childhood as I saw it through my eyes. I photograph daily simply because I love to! When I'm old and wrinkly and my memory is questionable, I will always have these photos to remind me of just how grand our lives really were!
