Rebranding: What to Expect

Image
Hey y'all! I recently announced that HDP was rebranding. I've been working super hard this summer: researching, redesigning, budgeting, getting feedback, and, more than once, realizing that something I was planning was not going to work and having to go back to the drawing board- lol.

I am currently in a season of transitioning so it's been a bit of a challenge balancing everything, but I'm super grateful for the ability to have this business. I feel blessed that something I use as a creative outlet also helps me make a living.

That being said, there is still a bit more work to do before I roll out all of the exciting new stuff, so for now here are some things you can expect with the new launch!
- A new look for the website!
- New services and photoshoot opportunities for y'all
- Photography tips and resources to help you with your own photography  - Restocking Shop Hayley Diana - And more surprises!
Stay tuned for sneak previews and the announcement of the official re…

Rebranding in Progress!

Hey y’all! Long time no see.
It has been a crazy, busy, exciting, scary, and wonderful year. I took a step away from HDP for that time but now I am back and ready to work!
Currently HDP is going through some serious rebranding that I can’t wait to show y’all. There will be gradual changes with the website, social media, and even new services being offered. 
I am so excited for y’all to see what's to come over the upcoming month and am super grateful for your patience as I get things back up and running. 
See you soon!

Small Group Photos 5

With this past spring came more core group photo shoots (see past core group shoots here, herehere and here)! It was bittersweet because it was my last season for the time being of taking core group photos. 
This time didn't disappoint. These girls are beautiful inside and out and their love for each other was so evident, even in our short half hour shoot. I was honored to be a part of their celebration of their friendship. 











Class of 2018 Part II

Sharing some more of this past graduation season's photo shoots! These graduates were freshman roommates (and my hall mates) and have been doing life together ever since! I had so much fun during this shoot, it felt simply like hanging out with two good friends rather than work! They are also both super photogenic which made editing these photos extra fun as well.

Class of 2018 Part 1

It's graduation season! This means I have been (happily) busy with grad shoots. This year's graduation season is extra special because it's finally my turn to graduate college! It's been a bittersweet couple of weeks, but I'm so grateful to be able to capture this special time for others.
A fun way to take your grad photos is with friends (and potentially your boyfriend). This trio was super fun to work with. Even though they're heading different directions after college, their friendship will definitely go beyond the four short years they spent together at school.









House Photos

Every spring and fall I look forward to taking house photo shoots. This fall I took house photos for some really close friends of mine. This was my favorite photoshoot of the year first because it was taken at a beautiful location. We went to a local reservoir right before sunset, which made for beautiful lighting. It made me, again, appreciate living in such a beautiful town. The second reason why this was my favorite shoot of the year was because of the women I was photographing. In the group were women I've lived with myself, gone on missions trips with, led Bible Study with, spent the week together at the beach with, or simply have gotten to know through our fellowship. Some of my best friends are also in this group, so I throughly enjoyed photographing their beauty. While we had fun it was a bittersweet time: most of us will be graduating in the spring and going our separate ways, but I'm glad I got to capture these memories for them.
