"My wife and I were very pleased with the senior portraits taken of our son by Linda Hayes. The quality of her work was exceptional and her pricing was very affordable. We greatly appreciated the time and attention to detail she took with each shot. She captured our son's personality perfectly!"- John Callard, senior parent

"Our history with Linda Hayes and her photography skills dates back to our now 23 year old son's early years in high school when she did all the head shots for the musicals in which he was involved. It was a no-brainer then to use Linda for his senior portraits. We had a fabulous adventure as Linda and Jordan sought the perfect backdrop in the graffiti tunnels of Rochester's old subway. Our son had a blast at the shoot and the results are fabulous and uniquely suited to his personality! Fast forward five years later and our daughter is now a high school senior. We once again turned to Linda for her senior portraits and she did not disappoint! Ariana chose the gardens of the George Eastman Museum and Linda worked with her quieter nature to produce stunning photos. These are memories we will treasure. Throughout both experiences, Linda was fun but professional and she thoroughly explained the process and the costs involved so there were no surprises. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Linda and Hayes Photography for any photographic needs (and in fact have done so many times)! - Lorri and John Diggory, senior parents

"I can't recommend Hayes Photography enough. My oldest is a senior so the whole senior picture process was new to me. I had asked friends for recommendations for photographers and Linda came highly recommended. As soon as we spoke, I knew we made the right choice. Linda met and talked with us asking Joseph about his interests and what he was looking for in terms of pictures. Her suggestions were invaluable. Joseph really wanted an outdoor setting. Linda offered numerous suggestions and in the end Joseph decided that her backyard was the perfect setting. During the photo shoot Linda made Joseph feel comfortable. Her professionalism and attention to detail made this a great experience. Linda has an eye for artistry and we couldn't be happier with the pictures. She took so many great shots that it was hard to narrow down. Again, we were thankful for her expertise in helping us choose. Linda has several package options available at a range of price points and we were able to go with the one that best fit our needs. Working with Linda was a great experience and I have highly recommended Hayes Photography to family and friends. I have two more children who will be needing senior pictures in the near future and I know we will be calling Linda again."- Elizabeth Mascho, senior parent

"My daughter and I were very pleased with our experience with Linda. At our first appointment she asked my daughter many questions about herself to get an idea of her interests and to provide ideas for various photo and clothing options. We left with a folder of useful information and I was happy there were both packages and a la carte items to choose from. The photo session was relaxed and Linda made sure my daughter was comfortable with the backgrounds and poses. We did not feel like we were another senior photo shoot to get through. My daughter knew she was going to have many images to choose from to get a great senior photo."- Nancy Neamtu, senior parent

"We love our family portrait!! The setting Linda selected is a perfect reflection of us! She was a pleasure to work with and we felt very comfortable and relaxed during the shoot." Sue, Ed & Scott St. George

This whole high school senior picture thing was new to us, and Linda met with us ahead of time and very patiently explained her indoor studio/outdoor location options, and enthusiastically listened to my daughter’s ideas. On the day of the session, she already knew the best locations with interesting and colorful scenery, and my daughter could take her pick. My daughter had a blast getting her pictures taken and I was amazed at Linda’s skill in producing great pictures - magically magnifying the natural light that I didn’t even know was there. We ended up with so many good pictures to choose from...It was an easy decision to have Hayes Photography do my second daughter’s pictures the following year. And we know whom we will trust our third daughter’s pictures to when the time comes… I chose Hayes Photography the first time because I was aware of Linda Hayes’ reputation for quality work. But after going through the process, I can personally say that Linda is a knowledgeable, skilled photographer, who made the entire experience fun for my daughters and stress-free for me."Shelley Long, Andrea and Stephanie's mom

Linda took both my son’s and daughter’s senior pictures. We were impressed by her creativity and professional demeanor. She provided a nice mixture of “surefire” senior shots and more personalized creative shots that brought out each of their personalities (my daughter was holding a Harry Potter book in some of her photos and was in a leotard and pointe shoes for others). At one point during my son’s shoot in Highland Park, he grabbed a branch and swung himself up into a tree. Linda was ready. She took a fantastic shot of him sitting up in the tree with a big smile on his face and the colorful foliage behind him. It’s my favorite picture! Linda was very amiable, encouraging and wonderful to work with, and we highly recommend her! ---Kate Walders, Tyler and Zoe's mom

"Hayes Photography was professional and easy to work with. Linda did a great job combining my daughter's preferences with her experience, resulting in many terrific photos to choose from." -Anne Marie Matina

"Mrs. Hayes' professionalism and sense of humor made my photo session tons of fun! I couldn't have asked for better pictures." -Kit Abbey
