Celebrate the Season with Hayes & Fisk


It is time to celebrate the season with Hayes & Fisk. We are having so much fun with our fall portrait sessions. We have also completed one of our four Holiday Quick Take sessions.

We hope you will consider bringing your family in this season to celebrate the holidays with Hayes & Fisk.

Listen to what some our clients have to say:

“Jamie is absolutely the best photographer! He’s a true artist and willing to go to any lengths to get the perfect shot. He did our wedding pictures 19 years ago and has taken many children/family portraits through the years. I wouldn’t trust my family portraits to anyone else!”

“Jamie has been photographing my 3 boys for 12 years now and he never disappoints. The boys always look forward to seeing him! The only problem is hat I am running out of room to display all the fabulous portraits!”

“The hardest part is picking just one or two final images. There are just so many great ones to choose from. I tell Jamie all of the time, he knows exactly how to hook a parent. He takes that perfect picture and you just HAVE to have it! We just LOVE Mr. Jamie!”

“One word… AMAZING!!”

Fall Portrait Sessions are in Full Swing


Fall Portrait Sessions are in Full Swing are we can’t wait to see your family in our studio for their session. Below you will find several reasons why we believe it is important to hire a professional photographer to capture these special moments.

Consistency Counts: Professional Photographers Share Why
“Often, with amateur portraits, clients get their images and they aren’t necessarily happy, but they don’t know why,” says Jen Basford of 3 girls photography in Edmond, Oklahoma. “Unfortunately, the amateur photographer usually doesn’t know why, either. So many amateurs just shoot with the situation they’ve been given, hoping for a few lucky shots with cute expressions, rather than crafting a scene that’s conducive to good portraiture. Then, when something doesn’t come out right, they don’t know how to fix it. By contrast, a pro can look at an image and immediately understand why it’s not satisfactory, and then make adjustments to produce a good end product.”

That’s why it’s so important to view an entire session of images, or a collection of photographs from many different sessions, so you can get a sense of the depth of a photographer’s work. It should be heartbreakingly difficult to select your favorite images from a family or child portrait session because almost every image should move you. If there are only one or two shots that you’d consider framing, then you’re not dealing with a professional product.

“There is a big difference between a lucky snapshot and a professionally produced image, one that is captured well and perfected in post-production,” says Laura Esmond of Hannah Photography in Denver. “That technical accuracy is big differentiator between pro work and images from an amateur with a nice camera.”

“Amateurs make some great images, but they may not be able repeat good results,” adds Basford. “With many amateurs or part-time enthusiasts, it’s almost a matter of luck when they create a beautiful photograph. All the conditions are right. The lighting happens to be perfect, and they get an amazing shot almost by accident. However, if you ask them to do it again under different circumstances, they can’t. A professional photographer, on the other hand, should be able to duplicate great results because the pro always knows what she is doing and why she is doing it. So, really, you’re making a much safer investment by hiring a pro because the work will be more consistent, and you won’t be risking your money on something that you may or may not like.”

Professionals have also made a commitment not only to their art but to providing the full package for their clients. “Pros spend a lot of time improving their art and researching the products and options for their clients,” points out Esmond. “Professionals educate themselves in ways that amateurs don’t have time to do, and they are dedicated to helping their clients display the images in the best possible way. It’s an investment in the full experience that amateurs can’t possibly duplicate.”

Here’s the best part of all this: Photographers love to show off their work—from digital files to fully assembled products. Ask a photographer to view more images, and you’re likely to see a twinkle in his eye as he excitedly pulls out albums, portfolios, iPads, image discs and every other display method he can find. It’s a creative collaboration, after all, and it all starts with client and photographer seeing eye to eye about the style of the images. Professionals understand that and welcome the inspection of their imagery.
