Portrait Photographer Richmond Virginia

Jamie Hayes

From that first exposure, I knew that nothing would fulfill my spirit like photographing people.  This is and always has been my purpose in life. Over the past 38 years, I have had the honor and privilege of capturing the most precious moments and amazing celebrations in the lives of the most incredible people on earth - you, my clients. Who would have thought that just a couple of books of S&H Green stamps could have sparked such amazing journey?  I am humbled to have been trusted with the responsibility of preserving your memories of today for tomorrow.

I love to talk and laugh and love. Telling stories and making people laugh is the best gift I have to give myself, my family and my clients. Capturing special moments, belly-laughs stolen kisses, perfect beginnings and love is what I do!  I love to photograph people celebrating their lives.  My family, my friends, my puppies, traveling, laughing out loud, cute shoes and a great cup of Starbucks coffee makes my heart sing!  The hugs of gratitude from my clients by capturing their most precious memories makes my heart full! Life is so overwhelmingly wonderful!

My love for children is what originally brought me to the Hayes & Fisk family. Who would have ever thought that a girl from the Northern Neck would end up working with one of the country's most award-winning and recognized studios! I have been a part of this team for over 12 years and as my family has grown so has my love for photography. Of course, my number one subject is my baby boy, Carter, but I do love photographing that perfect senior portrait, snuggly baby images and weddings. As a matter of fact I love it all and I would really love the chance to work with you.
