Meet Nathan, a senior at Webster Thomas High School.  Now, I thought I'd been to most locations in the Webster area for senior portraits, but this young man introduced me to one I hadn't been to, Four Mile Creek Preserve. Perfect!

Nathan loves being outside and the trail that winds through this section of town really was an awesome spot for his portraits.  With a barn next door, fall colors (something that he really was hoping for) and a beautiful day, we couldn't miss with this senior session.

I so enjoyed getting to know Nathan better (yep another student I've known for a while :) and sharing some laughs with mom as well.  Every spot we chose in this one location gave us unique backdrops for some really great images. Nathan did a nice job! He was patient and thoughtful and I was so pleased with the results of our efforts.

Creating a fun, memorable senior experience they won't forget is something I provide for each session.  Clients love the option of combining multiple images for their wall art and I love providing them with truly beautiful pieces.  

Nathan, I wish you all the best with these last few weeks of your senior year and happiness in whatever you choose to do in your future. Thank you for choosing Hayes Photography!!!

Next up is from my photography project, We All Have a Story, is Janet.  Janet's story is one of loss, sacrifice, hope, and love. I met her at a local coffee shop where we discussed everything from children, marriage, and relationships to losing and gaining self-esteem as well as her work as an educator.  For so many of us, we have a lot of personal stories to tell so the interview is such a key part of this process to help focus in on one particular story or concept.  To say Janet has been through the wringer is an understatement, but where she is now is a true statement of the type of person she is. Her daughters mean the world to her and the fact that she chose to be photographed in front of her home speaks to what she has earned on her own.

 In her words:

My Heart

It’s a fragile thing, this heart of mine

It’s been lost, broken & tangled like twine

This heart has been used

This heart has been abused

It’s been shattered when others have felt the truth didn’t matter

When a lover says one thing and does another, pieces break and like the four winds scatter

It’s a fragile thing, this heart of mine.

It seeks light when there’s none, holds on through storms, with a grip from none

And continues to love, and hope, even though love is done

This heart seeks to love where there has been only pain

This heart yearns for companionship amidst angst and strain

It’s been questioned and severed, been leveraged and denied

When lost and broken, this heart has even cried

It’s a fragile thing, this heart of mine… and yet

It loves with a strength stronger than steel

It craves the light and yearns to feel

This heart is willing to suffer again… and again

To ride the storm and endure the pain, for when…

When the once in a lifetime will finally arrive

This heart will heal and at long last shall thrive

It’s a fragile thing, this heart of mine

…But I give it to you
