Frequently asked questions
Where is the best place to take family photos?
There are endless opportunities for family photoshoot locations in Campbell River or Victoria, BC. As a photographer that loves natural lighting, we do not have a shortage of beautiful outdoor locations. I love the beach, along the river, in the forest, by the lake, in front of the ocean or up on a mountain top. If you have a place in mind, we can do it!
I also recognize that people love indoor shoots in their homes. I would be happy to come to your home and photograph your family in your natural habitat. This way, if you have young children, they will be extra comfortable in front of the camera.
We can also go to a location that is meaningful to your family. If you spend every weekend walking the same trail together, or you spend your summer afternoons at a certain beach, we can go there for family photos!
How much does a family photoshoot cost?
It depends if you are looking for a mini session or a large family session, whether you only want a few images, or the entire gallery! Prices start at $290.
What is your family photography style?
When it comes to family photography, and all photogrpahy for that manner, I love to utilize natural light to create vibrant, positive, bold images. My photos embody your personalities and represent your family the way you really are. I love organic, candid moments but I always make sure to offer direction for those families who need guidance.
What do people like about your family photo sessions?
"Hayley scouted a few different places and gave us some beautiful options to choose from for our family photos, you can really tell that she puts a lot of time into finding a spot that everyone will love. The most impressive part about the whole experience though, is how comfortable she made us all feel in front of the camera. We were all fairly nervous prior to showing up, but we ended up laughing and having a great time, which led to beautifully done family photos thanks to Hayley. I highly recommend Hayley for any photography needs. Her professionalism, ease in front of the camera, and overall work in both capturing wonderful shots as well as creating beautiful edits made for a wonderful experience." - The Boyds
"We had a family photoshoot with Hayley and it was an extremely positive and fun experience. My husband hates getting his photo taken and he enjoyed Hayley's fun and easy going, down to earth vibe. Our photos were fun and natural. Nothing was overly posed. She captured so many great photos of our daughter it was hard to limit how many to frame. Another thing I truly love about Hayley is she gave us many photos to choose from. Highly recommend!!" - Karina M.
"I found Hayley's page while searching for a family photographer and absolutely loved her style. After sending her a quick note about availability she was SUPER responsive and communicative. She has an eye for beautiful locations and picked the perfect spot for the photos I was hoping for. She was professional and engaging during the session and helped everyone feel comfortable, and of course captured some amazing moments! I will 100% book with her for photos while we are back on the island in the future!" - Laura N.
