Haley Yarborough has been taking photos since she was old enough to hold a camera and since then, has studied, worked, and earned a degree in Photography and Graphic Design. Photography is her passion as well as her profession, and she is committed to capturing all those special moments you don’t want to forget. With an eye for beauty and the unusual – and the skill to capture powerful and evocative images – Haley has established a reputation for excellence.
My favorite part of photography is capturing a moment in time to cherish and hold onto forever. The fact that images are able to say so many different things is fascinating to me and something I really try to focus on when doing my job. Because it is only just one frame, the challenge to make each image convey a personality and tell a story is the thing that pushes and excites me every time I pick up the camera.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
With portrait shoots and wedding photography, I try to get to know the subject(s) as best as I can in the limited amount of time I have with them. If I can sense their personality, then it's something I can work on tapping into through their photos. I think it's the most important thing to the client and it's definitely something I've received positive feedback on.
