You’ve made it to one of the most exciting events in your life: Your Graduation! This is such a thrilling time in life. Graduation is the end of an era, and the beginning of the rest of your life. It’s an important day to capture on camera, and not just with an iPhone or your parent’s old Nikon. 

I’ve been doing Graduation Photography for over 6 years now. I love working with both Highschool and University graduates! These sessions are always a lot of fun, and very unique. I like to capture photos of the real moments with you, your family and/or your friends. I focus on bright, bold, and colourful images to cherish for the rest of your life, whether you frame them on your walls or create a small coffee table book full of the images!

During these sessions, I will help guide you through certain poses and prompts, while also allowing for natural moments. I am energetic and passionate about what I do. Let’s get your family some really beautiful images together. It’s most likely overdue!

You Might Be Wondering..

What Is Your Style Like?
When it comes to Graduation photography, I love to utilize natural light to create vibrant, positive, bold images. My photos embody your personality and represent your family the way you really are. I love organic, candid moments. As a Graduation Photographer I am very comfortable giving lots of direction for those graduates or families who need guidance!

What Are Your Package Like?
I offer graduation photography sessions for whatever you are looking for! I have mini sessions for those who only need a few images, along with longer sessions that can last up to an hour. These bigger packages are great because we are not rushed for time and there is time to get comfortable in front of the camera. It all depends on what you are looking for. Here is a rough estimate of what your photoshoot could look like:
Mini Photoshoot Package:
20 minutes of photography
15 high-res edited images
Regular Photography Package:
20-50 minutes of photography
40 professionally edited images
Up to 8 people
Slideshow Included
Black & White Images
Extended Photography Package: 
Up to 75 minutes of photography
60 professional edited images
1 Outfit/location change if wanted
Option to have up to 10 people
Slideshow Included
Black & White Images
What Do We Wear?
This is the ultimate question I receive before a photoshoot. What on earth do we wear? Well, for graduates you can wear a ‘prom dress,’ regular dress, or bring your cap and gown. 
A few quick tips for the friends or family with you: Dress for the weather, choose complementary colours, layer your outfits, and potentially match the colour to the photoshoot location. Try to avoid matching your outfits completely, and wearing clothing with lots of patterns and bold colours.
When Do We Receive The Photos?
You will receive your graduation photos roughly 6 weeks after the session takes place, but often times it can be much sooner. Usually I will send a few sneak peeks so that you can share these to announce your graduation! But it takes time to finish the entire gallery (depending on which package you choose).
With every gallery, it takes time to sort through every image and pick out the best ones, edit them, and upload them to your digital album! I also create a slideshow with the two larger packages so that you and your family can relax on the couch, and watch your photos come to life on the TV!
What Is The Cost?
It depends if you are looking for a mini session or a larger graduation photography session, whether you only want a few images, or the entire gallery! Prices start at $320. Typically, people on average spend $590 on their session and oftentimes buy prints for their walls afterward.
What Are People Saying About Their Graduation Photos?
“Hayley did the grad pictures for my boyfriend’s family and they were gorgeous. I couldn’t pick out anything in those pictures I didn’t like. She is fun but still professional. The pictures were high-quality and my favorite part was how they were delivered! It gave ease of access for the whole family to have some of her gorgeous shots. 10/10 would recommend and will be using her again.”

“Hayley was an awesome photographer. She has great energy and could make any feel good in front of a camera. She is professional, very reasonably priced, and responds to inquiries very quickly. As far as the photos themselves Hayley is certainly talented as I am extremely happy with the quality and look of every single photo she took. Thank you, Hayley! It was such a fun time working with you.”


– Sara


“We arrived on location and Hayley was there already and cheerful and bubbly. She was very talkative and asked a lot of questions to really get to know my daughter while she took the photos. I was super impressed on how Hayley decided to donate her time to graduates in the CR area for prom photos. They turned out absolutely stunning and an extremely quick turn around. I would highly recommend Hayley as a photographer. She was very personable, reliable and took stunning high-quality photos. Thank you Hayley.”
