I’m a born and raised Montana girl living with my husband and 2 boys in my favorite city of Portland, Oregon. I love the mountains but can’t live without the ocean. My original career of choice was accountant but after 9 years of crunching numbers, I decided to follow my heart and my passion. I love to travel to new places and explore our own backyard. We have moved 7 times in 5 years, so our backyard has changed often. I cherish the vintage cameras I inherited from my Grandpa and the memories they hold. I’m a middle child between 2 awesome sisters.
Oh, and my last name? It’s pronounced “Hay-fee.”
My love of photography began at an early age and the passion only grew with the birth of my 2 sons. My absolute favorite photos are the ones where people forget that they are being photographed. I love the real smiles and the honest connections.
I treasure my family history and am so grateful that I come from a family that has always valued capturing moments on film. I love looking back at the forgotten moments or the moments and the people that existed before my time. I’m grateful for the tangible photos of my parents and grandparents when they were young. It makes me smile when my boys say, “Show me when you were a princess and you married Daddy” or when they ask to see their baby photos again and again and again. Our photos are my most prized and priceless possessions and they are what remain when we are gone.
Thank you for stopping by my website and getting to know more about me. I can’t wait to hear more about you!
