I feel like its been SO long since I posted a senior session!! Karly and I had the prettttiiieessttt day for her senior pictures, it was pretty magical. She is so sweet and such a cutie and I had the BEST time photographing her :) Karly thank you so much for running around with me, you are gorgeous and I hope the rest of your senior year is the BOMB!
I met Miss Tori in one of our art classes this year, and I was SO excited to be able to take her and Scott’s engagement pictures! Tori is literally one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met, and Scott is absolutely hilarious which made this session really fun. I am PUMPED to shoot their wedding in September! Tori and Scott, I know you’ve already seen these and I hope you love them as much as I do :)
The other day I went on a little walk and found the COOLEST spot near my house for a photoshoot. I was seriously dying to get over there with my camera. Luckily, Miss Kristin with Ryan Artists was such a doll and agreed to come shoot with me there, and I am SO excited about our results (hence the absolutely massive amount of pictures below!) Kristin is so gorgeous and fun and had amazing amazing amazing clothes to work with, which is always so exciting :) Plus we had some super gorgeous sunny light and I couldn’t have been happier! Kristin, thank you so much for coming out with me, I hope you love these as much as I do!
My calendar is now open for MAY and JUNE, and I’ll be opening it up for 2013 Seniors in the next few weeks!! Stay tuned for some exciting news and even more blog posts :)
I had some time open up a few weekends ago, and I called up Mckenna with Muse Models at the last minute to see if she would be up for doing a really quick shoot! Luckily she wasn’t busy and brought her boyfriend Will along, so we got to get some gorgeous shots of her AND some really sweet shots of the both of them! It made my whole day :) Mckenna and Will, thank you SO much for shooting with me! Enjoy :)
A couple weeks ago I was able to do a super quick little shoot with Miss Destiny! Destiny is constantly traveling between Portland, Las Vegas, and South Africa (!!!) working on different projects, from movies to modeling to editing, so any time she has an open slot in her busy schedule to shoot with me I feel SO lucky! She’s is so much fun to work with and I know she has a huge career ahead of her. I can’t wait to get a chance to plan another awesome shoot with her! Thank you so much for shooting with me Destiny, you’re the best :) Enjoy!
A few weeks ago I was driving back up to Portland from Eugene, and on my way home I saw that it was SUNNY and BEAUTIFUL, so I sent a quick text over to the stunning Miss Brittany and asked her if she would be up for doing a Fifteen Minute Photoshoot with me. I was so excited that she was able too, and we got some of the CUTEST laughing pictures EVER. Brittany you are such a doll, thank you so much for shooting with me :)
My calendar is now open for May and early June, so if you want to schedule a last minute senior shoot, a group of friends shoot, engagement, family, ANYTHING, contact me ASAP to snag a spot :) www.HaleyGrahamPhotography.com
World, meet baby Brendan. He is six months old and has some of the best facial expressions I’ve ever seen (the last picture is my fave). I literally was sitting on my couch cracking up as I was sorting through images. Enjoy a few photos of my shoot with this little nugget!
Last fall I was lucky enough to shoot with Miss Amanda for a quick Fifteen Minute Photoshoot, and you might remember that I declared in the blog post that Amanda was totally going to be famous someday. Well, here’s yet another reason why I think that’s true. The freakin’ SWEET shoes you see Amanda wearing in these pictures were designed by her for Elly Clay , and are currently being sold through the oh-so-addicting SoleStruck (Yeah I know, there goes the rest of your afternoon AND bank account). It was SO awesome to be able to photograph Amanda wearing her own designs. She’s such a sweet and creative lady, and I’m excited to be working with her on some future projects :) Enjoy!!
This is the last post of photos from Palm Springs :( So sad but luckily its finally starting to get a little bit sunny here and I have TONS of sessions to post that have a warm feel to them :) But anyways, back to this session! My best friend Amy’s family came with mine over Spring break, and when we found out that a bunch of her other friends from school were going to be in Palm Springs as well, we set up a little Friends Photoshoot for all of them. We roamed around the beautttiiffulll neighborhoods and stopped whenever we found a picture-worthy spot :) Ladies, thank you so much for shooting with me, I hope you love these!
If YOU want a photoshoot like this with your friends, message me ASAP to set it up! I’m now booking May and June and dates will fill up REALLY fast. Shoots like this are always a fun way to end your senior year or to give as a graduation present :) You can find pricing and contact me here.
Part 2 woo woo! So you might remember Anna from this shoot a few months ago. She runs a super cute blogged called Freckled Fashionista because well, that’s exactly what she is! She has an amaazzzinng fashion sense and has helped me style shoots in the past, including this one. When I found out that she and her friend Katie were going to be in Palm Springs the same time that I was, I jumped at the chance to do a desert shoot with them. I love love love this shoot and always have an amazing time working with Anna :) She’s so gorgeous and sweet, and is a killer model. KILLER. Ladies, thank you so much for taking time out of your vacay to run around in the desert with me, I hope you had as much fun as I did :)
I had a glorious time in Palm Springs last week, and as I’m writing this and looking out my rainy window I’m missing the warm warm sun that seems to be there ALLL the time. Can Oregon borrow some of that please? While I was there I was able to photograph two BEAUTIFUL and AMAZING girls named Katie and Anna in one of the most awesome locations I’ve ever seen, let alone shot at. I hope I can shoot there again next year :) Enjoy the first part of that shoot, featuring the stunning Katie’s images and a couple of the two of them as well! Part 2 is coming Thursday!
Today we had a full fledged blizzard where I live! It was amazing- there is just nothing like waking up to a fresh blanket of snow and then spending the day going on walks, drinking hot chocolate, and watching movies. So great. AND to make the day even better I thought I’d end it with a blog post of two BEAUTIFUL sisters I was lucky enough to do a fifteen minute photo shoot with a couple of weeks ago. Ronnie and Madeline met up with me right before sunset and we got to snap some sweet sister pictures and, of course, some gorgeous individuals too. Ladies, thank you so much for photographing with me, you two are awesome. Enjoy!! :)
“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”
- Ferris Bueller
Well guys, yesterday was my last day of college. Like, last day of school forever after 17 years of it being a daily thing. SO crazy. I think this quote by the fabulous Ferris Bueller sums it up pretty well. No matter how hard I try to slow it down and take everything in, life moves fast. Thanks goodness I have pictures of my life to remember it all.
I have been so blessed throughout my college career and life in general. Since I have graduated high school, I have been able to go on a trip to the East Coast, flown to Norway, flown to Hawaii, road tripped to Palm Springs every year, road tripped to San Francisco, flown to Kenya, started a business, interned with a fashion photographer, and photographed hundreds of wonderful people. I feel like my life is so full and I’m so excited to see what comes next on my path. I also want to say thank you SO much to my parents, my sister, my boyfriend, my best friends, and everyone else who has been so supportive of me the past four years. I love you all SO MUCH it makes my heart hurt!
Also, for those who are wondering, I am graduating from the University of Oregon with a Bachelor of Arts in Art and a minor degree in Communications. Bam a lam so fancy!
Well if you’ve made it this far in reading, you are a champion. Next comes my book. For one of my classes we were required to use the online bookmaker Blurb to make a book of anything we wanted. I figured, what better way to end the year then with a book of my favorite photos? I could only fit the last two years in, but there will be more books like this to come.
You can view the entire thing here, and I recommend going full screen :) Enjoy!
And just for fun, some pictures of it in person:
I got in touch with Hannah from Ryan Artists a little while ago about doing a test shoot, and was so excited to finally be able to work with this awesome girl. AND to make things even better, she brought along her gorgeous friend Marina, and I got to not only snap individual portraits of these pretty ladies, but some absolutely adorable best friend shots as well!
This is one of my FAVORITE photoshoots ever- it is always SUCH a treat to work with sweet, fun, confident girls and I feel like I was cracking up the entire time. Pair that with their amazing (Seriously, so freakin’ amazing) style and makeup skills, AND some of the most magical light ever, and we’ve got my dream photoshoot. There are soooo many images in this post because I just couldn’t narrow it down, so I hope you all enjoy :) Hannah and Marina, thank you so much for running around with me, you are both FABULOUS!
I’m now scheduling shoots in April and May!!! If you want a best friends shoot like this one, or any other kind, be sure to contact me ASAP through my website! xoxo
We have had SUCH amazing weather the past week and a half around here! It makes me want to be out shooting allllll the time, which in turn makes me so freakin’ excited for summer! I can’t wait :) Monique (Ryan Artists) was kind enough to run around with me on one recent sunny afternoon for a Fifteen Minute Photoshoot. She is such a cutie and I love the springy warm feel we got in these images! Thanks lady for shooting with me, enjoy!
