Your everyday life.

The real you, captured.

My lifestyle sessions are about being who you are, in your own element. Think of all the moments you'd like to freeze as your children grow up, the stages your children and family grow out of quickly, those are the moments that make YOUR family unique.  It's about holding onto those treasured memories that I would love to document for you. 

These images are not posed images, this is you, the real you, everyday!

I'd be honored to freeze all of these special moments for you to treasure for years to come!

Maternity. Birth. Fresh48. 3 months. 6 months. 9 months. 1 year. https://www.hailiejayphotography.com/blog/2016/3/maternity-birth-fresh48-3-months-6-months-9-months-1-year Angela and I have been friends over 20 years and I've been lucky enough to have had her ask me to photograph this memorable time in her life. Being there for Joey's birth was an experience I will never forget, from her phone call to his actual arrival . I've captured her maternity photos on through his first year. The feeling these photos give me is why I love my job.

Wedding 5/09/15 https://www.hailiejayphotography.com/blog/2015/5/2nd-shooter-wedding-photos Take a peek at the photos I took while 2nd shooting with the amazing photographer, Jannelle from Sweet Connolly Photography. We've known each other quite a while but we haven't had the pleasure of working together, finally getting to meet her and actually work along side her was an absolute honor. Not only was she incredible to work for, the couple that got married was so sweet! Their wedding was gorgeous, elegant and the venue was stunning. The Aria was a perfect spot for the reception.

Manchester Hospital ~ CT~ Joey's Birth Story https://www.hailiejayphotography.com/blog/2015/5/joeys-birth-story March 29th, 2015

I was honored to shoot my first live birth, I couldn't even explain the intense emotions of this session. Not only was this my first time capturing birth images this mama is my childhood best friend. I was at the hospital for 24 hours with them waiting for Joey to make his appearance.  He was born at 10:20am weighing 7lbs 13oz  and he was 21" long.

Janina 38 weeks and glowing https://www.hailiejayphotography.com/blog/2015/4/janina-38-weeks-and-glowing I was beyond excited to shoot this maternity session. I approached Janina last week asking if she was interested in a maternity session and at 38 weeks I wasn't sure she'd want to but she did!! Am I glad!! Not only was it a session at a beautiful beach the clouds were amazing! As you can see in these photos these two are so in love, which made my job easy!!

Adams Family https://www.hailiejayphotography.com/blog/2014/9/adams-family I can't get enough of this family..

* I was first contacted by Katie to photograph their newborn Benny, 3/2013.


Later that year they asked me to photograph their family at the beach, 9/2013.



Shortly after this session I was contacted by Katie with the EXCITING news that they were expecting!!!


I met up with Katie & Ross to snap a few maternity photos, early this year, 3/2014.

She and Ross wanted me to photograph their birth story, unfortunately we weren't able to photograph it BUT I was able to capture their sweet little Gabriella, 5/2014.

I can NOT tell you how HONERED I felt when they contacted me to take their family photos AGAIN, at the beach, but this time as a family of 7! 8/2014.



I'm over joyed that the Adam's have chosen ME to be their family photographer.. There is not a better feeling then the feeling when a client keeps coming back...

*Cristina is a gorgeous mama, she was 28 weeks at the time of our session. Big sister Layla, is beyond adorable!! Cody and Cristina are expecting a BOY!!! 

At times outdoor winter sessions are tough in CT, but we were lucky enough to have somewhat of a decent day. It was cold but we were able to capture this beautiful moment for them near the lake..

Anna & Jimmy ~ Waiting for baby girl Layla ~ Maternity https://www.hailiejayphotography.com/blog/2014/2/anna-jimmy-waiting-for-baby-girl-layla  ~ I was approached by Anna's sisters, they wanted to give her and Jimmy something 'different' for their shower. They decided to get them a maternity AND a newborn session.                                                

                                                                     ***I'm SUPER lucky they chose ME!***

~I'm honored to have met them; they're a super cute couple that is patiently waiting for the day baby Layla arrives!

~Our ideal session would have been at the beach but in CT in February just we couldn't, we did however get lucky with warmer day and were able to take a few shots outside. Anna had a few great ideas we included into our session. Anna was just about 34 weeks along, and glowing.

 Take a look for yourself...

Gabby {Senior Class of 2014} https://www.hailiejayphotography.com/blog/2013/9/gabby-senior-class-of-2014 I've wanted to start a blog for sometime now but I haven't had the time to sit down and actually do it, and lets be honest those who know me know writing doesn't come naturally, my grammar and punctuation is... scary!!  So with that said I ask that you just bear with me and give me a chance to get blogging down. 

It wasn't until I finished up this gorgeous senior album that I know I had to start NOW..

Gabby's senior session was perfect! An evening at the beach with a beautiful young lady who could beat that? She was completely comfortable with the camera as you can see. She had a great support system who also joined her session. We would like to wish Gabby the very best in her last year of high school!!
