Building Lifetime Client Friendships – with Hailey Faria

“Be genuinely interested in everyone you meet and everyone you meet will be genuinely interested in you”
― Rasheed Ogunlaru

She approaches each session as if she and her clients are old friends catching up, not looking at it like a paycheque, but expanding her circle larger and larger every time. Focusing on building relationships and creating lifetime friends.

Hailey Faria infuses each session with connection, moods, sexiness, and laughter.

Her sessions invoke carefree days, frolicking through grass, hiking to a location that may get your feet a little dirty, doing weird dance moves with your offspring, and letting your significant other get handsy. All while watching the sun disappear too quickly.

What I love about Hailey is as a mentor and a photographer she goes all in.  She has figured out her recipe for the ingredients to make art that she is truly passionate about, how to create lifetime friendships with her clients, and how to help others figure out their secret ingredients to create work they are passionate about too.

Education and photographing families have been my heart and hope to continue this for years to come.
