WELCOME

HI FRIENDS! WELCOME TO ALLISON HAYS PHOTOGRAPHY. I AM ALLISON, BUT MOST OF MY FRIENDS CALL ME ALLIE. I’M HAPPY YOU FOUND ME!

I STARTED MY JOURNEY IN PHOTOGRAPHY WAY BACK IN 1995! THROUGHOUT THE YEARS, I ASSISTED MY MENTOR AND FRIEND AT WEDDINGS AS HIS ASSISTANT. I CONTINUED WORKING WITH HIM THROUGHOUT MY ADULT LIFE EVERY NOW AND THEN ASSISTING HIM AS WELL AS COORDINATING WEDDINGS AT OUR STUDIO WHICH¬† DOUBLED AS A WEDDING VENUE. DURING THAT TIME I FINISHED MY BACHELORS DEGREE IN AMERICAN STUDIES, THINKING I WAS GOING TO TEACH ELEMENTARY SCHOOL AGES. I SUBSTITUTE TAUGHT THROUGH THOSE YEARS WHILE RAISING MY OWN 4 CHILDREN – AND ALSO WAS A SCHOOL LIBRARIAN (SERIOUSLY… THE BEST JOB ON CAMPUS!) IN 2002, I OFFICIALLY WENT TO WORK FOR HIM FULL TIME AND IT WAS THEN THAT MY PATH WENT FULL FORCE TOWARDS PHOTOGRAPHY. TEACHING WAS ALWAYS WHAT I THOUGHT I WOULD DO, BUT I CAME TO REALIZE THAT PHOTOGRAPHY WAS MY PASSION, MY LOVE. IN 2006, I LEFT THE STUDIO AND HAVE SINCE WORKED FOR MYSELF. ALTHOUGH I STARTED IN WEDDINGS, I HAVE VENTURED INTO PORTRAITURE WORK THAT INCLUDES EVERYTHING FROM MATERNITY SESSIONS TO HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS. WEDDINGS ARE STILL ONE OF MY FAVORITE ASPECTS OF THIS PROFESSION.

I GENUINELY ADORE ALL OF MY CLIENTS. THEY BECOME FAST FRIENDS AND WE START A RELATIONSHIP THAT MEANS SO MUCH TO ME! TO WATCH LITTLE ONES GROW UP, MY HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS GRADUATE AND THEN COME BACK TO ME FOR A WEDDING CONSULT, THAT IS WHAT THIS IS ALL ABOUT. HELPING YOU TO DOCUMENT THE MEMORIES OF YOUR LIFETIME AND BECAUSE OF MY LOVE FOR MY CLIENTS, IT SHOWS IN NATURAL, RELAXED AND FUN IMAGES.

YOU NEED SOMEONE YOU CAN TRUST AND SOMEONE WHO WILL SHOW YOU HOW TO LOVE THE PROCESS OF WHAT IT IS TO HIRE A PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER. LET ME SHOW YOU WHAT A PERSONABLE, COMFY AND FRIENDLY EXPERIENCE GETTING YOUR PORTRAITS DONE IS –¬† WHETHER IT BE FOR THE NEW BABY IN YOUR LIFE, YOUR GRADUATING SENIOR OR YOUR OWN ENGAGEMENT AND WEDDING! I LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING FROM YOU!
