Perfect Family Riverfront Session

Perfect weather, perfect family, perfect relatives, perfect waterfront location and perfect personalities made for the most perfect family riverfront session!

Perfect weather, perfect family, perfect relatives, perfect waterfront location and perfect personalities made for the most perfect family riverfront session!

As we photograph individuals and families, we often reflect on our own lives. Jamie shared that photographing this session made him do just that. He said, “I am so thankful that I was able to capture Lauren’s family and all the fun that this crew has when they are together. Between the laughter shared by Lauren and Pam and the comradery of near twins, literally born days apart, Eliza and Lucy, I found myself caught up in the wonders of a large family.” Sometimes as we create art, our minds put us in the lives of the people we are photographing, and this enhances our creativity.

The day before this session was a total washout. It rained heavily all day. So the warm sunshine was a welcome change which allowed us the opportunity to create fantastic portraits of every combination imaginable.

The look in Grandmother Edith’s eyes said it all. How fortunate to have made the time to document and preserve these memories for the many generations to come. After all, how many great-grandmothers (at 90) can witness a portrait session like this one. Edith and her entire family relocated to White Stone, VA last year via Long Island, NY. Katie Dew of Isabell K. Horsley Real Estate found them the perfect waterfront home. A place where Edith would be surrounded by her loving family and could really enjoy life.

This session will be the best way to celebrate her life and the future lives of this amazing family. From the candid images on the dock of her great-grandchildren to the perfect family portrait highlighting her wonderful waterfront views, this session is one for the records!

As you can see, this session was done in the fall. However, as we welcome Spring and approach Summer, we encourage you to gather your family and make time to create such special and lasting memories.

It is not too late to have your dog or cat take part in our Tails of RVA Coffee Table Book.

In coordination with Fetch-a- Cure, we are putting together Tails of RVA a Hayes & Fisk Publication.  This will be a limited edition coffee table book, featuring RVA’s Best Dogs.

The best part of this promotion is that proceeds will benefit FETCH. We believe strongly in this local charitable group and we are excited to photograph some of our favorite subjects while raising money for a great cause.

FETCH works tirelessly to further pet cancer awareness, education, and treatment. This is definitely something we can get behind. A $100 donation to FETCH will be made from each session fee.

The session fee is $250 and includes the session, a copy of the book with a custom cover featuring YOUR dog, and a $100 donation to FETCH.

All you have to do is contact Hayes & Fisk to schedule your session. 804-740-9307 or mary@hayesandfisk.com

Bring in your dog or cat and get ready for him or her to be a star!

Celebrating Honors Received at VPPA

We are so excited to share this Celebrating Honors Received at VPPA post your our Hayes & Fisk family. As many of you know, Professional Photographers of American (PPA) and our local affiliate VPPA are very near and dear to our hearts. Not because of the accolades that we share with you today, but because of the education and comradery we share with fellow photographers.

Mary and Jamie and long-standing members of both organizations, but it goes even further than membership. They believe in the mission and work hard to support it in every way. Together they participate in yearly conferences, present to fellow photographers, attend sessions to learn from their colleagues, volunteer in numerous capacities, and Mary serves on the Board of Directors for PPA. These are responsibilities that they don’t take lightly. So when they have the opportunity to submit work for competition they jump at the opportunity. They don’t do this simply to bring home awards and trophies, but more importantly to learn from their work and strive to become even better at their craft.

Hayes & Fisk also take great pride in the fact that the majority of their submissions each year consists of client’s work, not work that they create simply for competition. We believe that this authenticity comes through in each piece we submit.


This year we are honored to have brought home the following awards:

2019 Photographer of the Year – Jamie received this for the third time in a row.

Both Jamie and Mary were recognized as Top 10 Photographers in Virginia

Jamie and Mary both received the VPPA Service Degree – This means they gave over 85 credits of combined service, teaching, volunteering and entering image competition to the Virginia PPA. This is a brand new degree and they were two of the first to earn it (less than 10 earned it total).

There were 607 entries in the image competition (which is HUGE), however, we still won the following awards between the two studios, Hayes & Fisk and Real Life Studios.

Best Portrait of a Senior (RLS)
Best Portrait of a Group (H&F)
Best Wedding Album (H&F)
Best Wedding Day Portrait (H&F)
Best Wedding Day Candid (H&F)
ASP State Elite Award (top scoring image for all ASP members) (H&F)
Best Commercial or Industrial Image (H&F)
Court of Honor Wedding Day Portrait (H&F)
Court of Honor Portrait of a Man (H&F)
Court of Honor Pictorial Portrait (H&F)
Best Photojournalism (RLS)
Court of Honor Photojournalism (RLS)

Mary was also awarded the PPA National Award. The National Award is a special honor that PPA Affiliates can award to recognize outstanding services in professional photography. It is available to state, regional, and national PPA Affiliates to honor an individual for his or her outstanding services to professional photography in their community.

Last but not least, Andee won the Virginia Award for her service to the Virginia Professional Photographers Association and years of volunteerism.  This is a very high honor and we couldn’t think of a more deserving person for this award.

Below we are sharing some images of the actual awards and trophies because we can’t share the actual award-winning images at this time. We will be able to share them with you after the International Competition in August.
