Morgan Family Beach Portrait Session


In celebration of our first weekend at the beach, we are sharing the Morgan Family’s Beach Session on the blog today! We are headed to Virginia Beach this weekend to kick off our summer beach portrait sessions. We will be there Friday through Tuesday and it is not too late to schedule your session.

The beach session in this post is of the Morgan Family. We really got to know The Morgans when we photographed their oldest son Parker’s Bar Mitzvah in 2016.  We enjoyed our time with them during that special event, so we were excited to photograph this beach session.

Jennifer’s parents, Miriam and Arnold live in Oceans Condo in Virginia Beach. This condo has a retro beach club feel and Jamie really enjoyed capturing these special images. The entire family was part of this session. Parker and Carter have an awesome relationship for sibling boys at this age.  They truly enjoy spending time with each other and that is very special to watch. Jennifer’s brother Ricky and his son, Max, also joined us. We really enjoyed seeing the relationship between these three cousins, despite the 15-year age gap. This was a very special family with a tight bond.

Miriam and Arnold have quite the collection of paintings and photographs in their condo. So, Jamie really wanted to create a new painting that they would be able to enjoy, but also looks like it fits right in. Jamie also learned a lot about their family and history. It was very interesting to learn that Miriam’s family used to own a prominent butcher shop, Meyer Meats, in Richmond back in the day. It is always so much fun learning about our client’s history. That is how they truly become part of the Hayes & Fisk Family.

We hope you enjoy this session below, and email Mary today to schedule your beach session this summer!

Beach Session Time


It is beach session time for Hayes & Fisk and we are super excited for this year’s season! Every summer we visit the beaches of Virginia and The Carolinas. Here we capture our clients as they enjoy family time at the beach.

We know that after Memorial Day weekend you will start thinking about what you are going to do during your beach vacation. We encourage you to let us know when and where you are going to be so we can arrange to capture this special time for you and your family. The sand, ocean, and sun make for the perfect backdrop.

Look at the smiles in the pictures below. Everyone loves spending time at the beach, so this makes for the perfect time to capture these memories. Kids are happy, adults are relaxed, and everyones’ skin is glowing from the sun. Our clients tell us that their beach sessions are some of their favorite pictures of their family.

If you don’t have a beach vacation planned, but think this is a great idea, we encourage you to call your family and plan a long weekend. This is a great way to get all of your extended family together to enjoy some time together while making new memories that will last a lifetime.

You will typically find us at Virginia Beach and The Outer Banks, but we are open to scheduling time at any beach in Virginia or the Carolinas. Our clients know we LOVE to travel, so as long as it works in our schedule we will make it happen.

Please contact Mary to inquire about booking your family session. She can answer any questions you may have and get you on the calendar. We hope to see you at the beach!

Springtime Family Portrait Session


Before you read this post, we ask that you watch this video that Mary did for Professional Photographers of America (PPA) on the Print Movement. Mary was asked to do this video at the same time the Bumgardners about getting an updated family portrait. The portrait installation at the end of this video is at the home of the Bumgardners, whose session is detailed below.

Portrait Session

Sometimes it seems impossible to explain to new clients the importance of print. We try to emphasize the importance of having a family portrait sessions done by a professional photographer and having those images printed for all to see.

However, our hearts sing when our long-time clients call us and say, “It is time for a new family portrait.” That is exactly what happened before we photographed this session.

Dutch, the father, called because his anniversary was approaching. The only present that his wife had asked for was an updated portrait of their girls. Dutch explained how much the first portrait of Lizzie and Emma meant to their family. He knew the only gift that would make his wife happy was a new oil portrait. These words truly brought Jamie to his knees. He quickly looked up the Bumgardner family’s first portrait and right away he remembered every detail. We know we are truly blessed to be able to create these amazing memories for our clients. To hear that this was the only gift that Brooke wanted; literally music to our ears.

Dutch, Brooke, Lizzie, and Emma visited our Parham Road location to have their portrait session photographed in our garden. Whether spring or fall, our garden makes for the perfect backdrop. Now that spring has made it to Virginia, we are ready to welcome families for their spring portrait sessions.

Mary had been asked by PPA to make a Print Movement video around the same time we received Dutch’s call. We knew right away that this session would be a great one to highlight in this video. We have always expressed the importance of print to our clients, and it is our pleasure to share it with our colleagues as well.
