Colorado Springs Family, Newborn, and Portrait Photography
From engagements to pregnancy and family photos, I love being there for it all. I have over 5 years of experience photographing portraits at mountainous locations across the state, especially in my hometown of Colorado Springs. Whether you are traveling from out of state, newly engaged, just had a baby (congratulations!), or want to document your growing family year after year, I would be honored to work with you!

YAY! My favorite part of the entire process - we will hang out, have fun, and capture some beautiful images to fill your home

“Haili was absolutely phenomenal!! She exceeded every expectation I had for our family session! We will forever use her as our photographer!”
I take on a limited amount of sessions per month to ensure each family gets the experience they deserve. It is recommended to reach out at least 6 weeks in advance, but I will certainly fit you in if I can!
Your initial proof gallery will be ready within 2-3 weeks of your session. I pour a lot of time and love into each and every image to ensure you get a beautiful gallery!
Absolutely! At this time I travel within the state of Colorado and love the mountain experience. Contact me for more details about mountain sessions!
I believe outfits are very important and they affect the overall mood and tone of your images. I have created an entire portrait session guide that I send to you after booking, and my favorite tips for styling your session are included! For starters, I love light, neutral colored clothing.
If there is more than a 50% chance of rain/hail/thunderstorms on the day of your session, or winds exceeding 15mph, I will text you as soon as possible to reschedule. On the other hand, snow photographs beautifully, and I usually prefer to go ahead unless it's extremely frigid or windy. The weather plays a huge role in the overall experience and outcome of your session, so I prefer to reschedule if the conditions are bad.
I am a member of a gorgeous natural light studio located in Old Colorado City. I do some milestone photos and newborn sessions here!
For outdoor sessions, there are a few very specific things that I look for to ensure we get the best lighting, so I can deliver photos to you that are consistent with my bright and warm style. I have several favorites around town, and we can go over this more upon booking! Newborn sessions take place in your home, or in studio.
I'm pretty picky when it comes to time of day... but only because I want our shoot to be successful! Finding that golden light is essential. I only like scheduling within the last two hours of sunset, ideally that last hour before the sun goes down. Thankfully I have a resource which allows me to schedule almost perfectly the best time for each location your session will take place. Mornings are possible too, but it needs to be pretty early as the lighting gets very harsh and bright quickly.
I consider myself both a traditional portrait and lifestyle photographer. This means that at your session, I will get some "everyone smiling at the camera" photos, as well as some fun, candid, emotive photos. I believe both are important! I make basic enhancements and edit true-to-life color, keeping skin tones natural.
