Where are you based?
I live in a small town in western Wisconsin, but work out of the twin cities area as well.
Do you have a studio?
I do not personally own a studio, but have access to several throughout the twin cities area.
What type of sessions do you photograph?
I document your journey through motherhood. From maternity sessions, and the arrival of your newborn, to your family adventures I want to be there for you. I love kids, always have always will! I once told my preschool teacher I was going to have 100 BABIES… Ooofta. Safe to say that number was significantly lowered after actually becoming pregnant. The moments captured during my pregnancy are some of my favorite though, and those tiny fingers wrapped around mine while Arthur was oh so little, will be treasured forever.
I also photograph boudoir in my sister company, Evergreen boudoir. While many like to gift these sessions to their other half, a boudoir session is also an incredibly powerful thing to do for yourself! You’ll soon understand why your loved ones are telling you how gorgeous you look with your hair piled on top of your head, and feel more empowered then ever! You can find more information, here.
What’s your style?
I would describe my style as a lifestyle portrait photographer. I love capturing those REAL moments. I want to see you giggling, and twirling around playing with your kids on the floor - or maybe we’re capturing those final moments before your life is forever changed. The first time your older children get to meet their new little brother or sister, or those tiny little toes that you know will all too soon be running down the hall. So if you’re looking for your traditional portrait standing next to each other, smiling at the camera - I may not be the best fit for you. But if you are looking to capture those everyday moments you wish you could hang on to forever, then I’m your girl!
When do you recommend scheduling a session?
I recommend scheduling your session as soon as you can. As a self proclaimed mompreneur, life is chaotic! Isn’t that the truth for any mom?!? One of my goals when opening Hayley Mann Heirloom Photography was to create a schedule that allowed me to dedicate quality time to capture my clients beautiful stories, and still have time for Arthur!
What locations do you use?
I’m always up for an adventure. From the falls, to the hills we have with the wild grass blowing in the wind, we have many beautiful options for your photo session. If you’re looking for an indoor session or it’s simply too cold outside; some of my favorite sessions take place in my clients homes. There is nothing more authentic, and cozy in my opinion!
What does my session fee include?
Your session fee includes;
Your pre-photoshoot consultation. This is where we can discuss your vision for your photo shoot, go over your wardrobe ideas and answer any other questions! This is also a great time to let me know about that gallery wall, or the storyteller’s album you’ve been dreaming of.
Your 1-2 hour photo session : Family, Maternity & Motherhood Sessions
Newborn sessions are typically 3-4 hours. This allows plenty of time to stop for feedings and not feel rushed throughout your session.
And finally your reveal day and ordering session.
Can I print my images myself?
All of my images are ordered in collections. Once you choose your collection you will also receive a USB drive with all the digital copies of your images. You may print, additional prints from these.
I want to work with you! How do I book my session?
Woohoo! I can’t wait! With my Little Mann, my hours of reaching a computer vary from day to day. This is why I have my available dates ready to purchase online, and with your pre-session consult we’ll have plenty of time to get to know each other and discuss your goals for each session.
