I'm Hayley. I started Hayley Diana Photography (HDP) in the spring of 2014, when I was still in high school. Back then it was just a small blog where I posted photos I took of my friends and family, backyard, and pieces from my art class.
Later, in college, I started getting requests from friends to take professional headshots. Soon, members of my Christian fellowship started asking for photoshoots of their small groups, and housemate photos. I started getting hired for events, small business campaigns, and even theater productions. I soon got a job working as a summer associate for my university's communications office, which led to not only some of my first published photos, but published writing as well. By the time I graduated, I was regularly booking shoots every spring and fall semester. Post-grad I became the Manager of Digital Marketing and Merchandising and in-house photographer for a boutique franchise.
