“Being part of a family means smiling for photos.” –Harry Morgan

Family

You know those little people who spill Cheerios on the floor, get out of bed 2.9 million times after being tucked in, and love to make surprise appearances during your most important work Zoom meetings? Yep, those little folks. I know they can keep you on your toes... and I also know that you love them with your WHOLE HEART. No matter just how chaotic life can be, I want you to have the single most exquisite photos of their little faces on your walls. I want you to pause every time you walk by, and remember how good life is. Families are my specialty, and it's a good thing because family is who you always come back to. Family is love. Family is crazy.  Family is strong. Family is everything.

Investment & Experience Details

I want to hear ALL about your family. Who are the people in your home? Which one is shy,... and who is the complete ham? What are your favorite things to do as a family (and perhaps most importantly, where are you going out for dessert after our session and am I invited?!)

Getting to know your family is so helpful to me going into your session so I know how best to create images that reflect each and every personality.

The Family Experience

GETTING TO KNOW YOU

I have a full session guide upon booking which will help you get the most out of your photos. It will help you prep for our shoot, know the colors and patterns that photograph best, and I even include helpful links of where to shop!

I also have a collection of clothing items in my client closet that you may choose from to wear during your photos as a courtesy for booking with me. One thing's for sure. You're going to look GREAT.

WHAT TO WEAR?

"What if I don't know what to do in front of the camera?" - this is one of my most common questions, and one of my favorites to answer. I've got you! I pride myself in making my clients feel comfortable in front of the camera. After all, we are just hanging out and I just happen to be snapping some photos along the way! I will gently guide you into flattering poses and natural moments. Basically? It's going to be FUN.

I WILL GENTLY DIRECT YOU

I'm SO happy you're here. Feel free to look through my work (can you even imagine the magic we are going to create?). Perhaps you want to look through my work, learn a little more about me, how pricing works, or how to book your session... it's all here so please stay, get comfy, and make yourself at home.

Any questions? I'm happy to help! Please contact me here. 

Take a look around!

Step 1 of 5

Once you've decided you just can't live without "The Jeanna Hayes experience," be sure to contact me and say hello! I will be over the moon to connect with you.

Before your session we will discuss options for a date, time, and location. I would love to hear about your family, and your "vision" for the shoot (if you don't have one just yet, no problem - that's what I'm here for!)

Please say hello!

Step 2 of 5

After we've decided on a date, time, and location, I will send over a contract and an invoice. Completion of both will make everything official and secure your spot in my calendar! 

At this point I will send over a detailed session guide which will help you get the very most out of your photos with me. Because I pride myself in image quality, consistency, and style, there are a few steps to take with outfit selection and preparations. The good news is that it's not complicated at all!

Step 3 of 5

The day we've all been waiting for! (You look great by the way)

One of the best parts of working with me is the actual session. Your experience during our time together is very important to me. I want you to feel relaxed and at ease (Most of my first time clients tell me how surprised they are by how natural and easy the session is!).

I love meeting new friends and my greatest hope is to continue a lifelong relationship of capturing your family photos... starting from when your kids are learning how to walk, to when they are taller than you! It goes fast and you won't ever regret getting these images taken. 

The big day (*cue confetti*)

Step 4 of 5

Two weeks after your session, I will send you a very special link. Get the tissues ready, and enjoy looking at your photos. Is your family not SO INSANELY GORGEOUS?!

From this gallery you will select your digital image package, prints, and products, which I will guide you through. 

I'm here every step of the way.

Enjoy!

"I looked high and low for a photographer that has my same style and passion for all things timeless and whimsical. When I found Jeanna I knew that a match made in heaven was about to happen. She completely brought my newborn shoot dreams to life. 

When the big day came she made sure we had proper lighting in our home and wore a mask to keep us all safe. I could tell her main goal was to have our pictures be 100% perfection. 

She is sweet, caring and amazing with kids. She was patient and understanding when I had to nurse or our sweet baby boy was being camera shy. She far exceeded our expectations and we will definitely use her again. The newborn shoot was beyond anything we could have imagined!  Worth every penny."

"I’m the happiest when I work with Jeanna because her tone is friendly and the environment is fun. She’s patient with our child that has special needs which is a huge plus. My whole family is comfortable with her and it always make for beautiful photos.

What makes Jeanna stand out from others is her attention to detail. Whether it’s commercial or family photos the execution is always flawless. With each shoot I know I’m going to receive perfect photos.

Jeanna always has a fun, natural environment while shooting. Her talent is unmatched and her photos are timeless. It’s always a pleasure."

"There are too many wonderful things to write about Jeanna. I will start with the fact that I will never have another human take my photo again. Her understanding of light and color and posing and framing make for the absolute perfect shot every time. Every holiday card I put together I have people begging for her contact info. 

Perhaps above all of that is who she is. She makes even the most uncomfortable and awkward people look like naturals and can use her photography sorcery to capture these incredible images of my kids (who are absolute tornados). We love her and have told her that she will be taking our photos for as long as she can hold a camera."

“Jeanna’s photography is magical! She has raw and genuine talent that is hard to find. She takes the ordinary, everyday moments and turns them into beautiful artwork. Her work is timeless. She has a way of capturing the sweetest moments with my children that I will get to hang onto long after they are grown.

My family loves sessions with Jeanna, she is fun and passionate about what she does. Even when the kids aren’t cooperating Jeanna works her magic and our photos are always gorgeous! Friends and family who see my pictures always want to know who my photographer is. Jeanna is a true artist.”

“We've worked with Jeanna for two family sessions and have loved working with her! As a family who does not do photo sessions very often, it is important to us to make them count when we do. Jeanna did not disappoint and I cannot tell you how many compliments we received on our photos when they were used for our holiday card!

We have two young boys who never stop moving and Jeanna was so great with them. I swore there was no way we were going to get the photos I had hoped for with how tough it seemed to get my boys to stay still. When we received them, I was beyond happy with the quality of the photos she was able to capture. We had so many amazing family photos to choose from and use. We will have these photos forever, and I am so grateful to Jeanna for doing such a wonderful job and capturing our family so perfectly.”
