So glad you're here! I'm Lily Hayes, a Professional, Licensed, Legal and Insured Dallas, Wedding, Maternity, Newborn, Cake Smash and Family Photographer serving the greater Dallas area.
Documenting my own children's lives and they're organic way of being day after day, did I truly understand how PRICELESS photographs were. How much I wanted to spend every waking moment documenting their everyday life, before it too, became a faded memory. Soon after that it became an obsession to capture your very own life, and the life you love! :)

In search of a Professional Dallas Wedding, Maternity, Newborn, Cake Smash and Family Photographer in Dallas, all you have to do is Google in your keywords and you'll find an endless amount of photographers to choose from. How would you know which one is right for you? Most people tend to shop by price, which is completely understandable.
With Professional Dallas Maternity, Newborn, Cake Smash and Family Photographer, Lily Hayes Photography and all genres of photography, let's just say you get what you pay for. If you're willing to expand your budget a bit, you’ll factor out all the inexperienced and untrained photographers out there. Dallas Photographers who take pictures with a consumer level camera on auto mode and send over a hundred photos that are either poorly edited or individuals not looking comfortable at all. Perhaps because the photographer didn’t take the necessary time and effort to carefully pose. Something that's very important and quite crucial in the process of creating works of art. I don't know about you but for this once in a lifetime experience, I would rather pay a bit more for clean, crisp, sweet photos of my love ones posed beautifully and comfortably. For the reason and many more, it's very important to hire a professional.
In my 8 years in business, I have photographed hundreds of clients. I have taken posing and safety workshops. I've had three babies of my own! ♥ Let's not forget to talk about, insurance; yes, I'm fully insured! Although reasonable DSLR cameras are easily accessible to consumers, what matters most is the skill it takes to manually and creatively use that equipment. I have personally invested over $40k in camera, lenses, studio lighting, computers, latest editing software, management systems. Over 20K in quality Maternity, Newborn and Cake Smash Photography props; couture gowns, jewelry, backdrops, floors, outfits, headbands, hats, wood props, blankets, wraps to name a few but that's just the expense of want it takes to produce an image, it does not include my CODB; taxes, licenses, memberships, subscriptions, fees, marketing..etc. It's an investment I have made and will continue to make into my business. Most importantly and above all else, a commitment I make to every single client of mine that I will produce the best possible photographs. In this digital age, clients love having their photographs in digital format. You'll notice not many photographers sell their digitals, let alone the entire gallery and when they do, you’ll notice that they are priced a lot higher than fine art prints.
Reason being, digital files are amongst the highest priced items to photographers, because once I give you the files, I lose any future sale from your session. For this reason, I need to ensure a reasonable profit is made. You'll be making a quality investment in something that’s worth the effort, time, and money for that reason most clients tend to book months in advance to help save for their custom Maternity, Newborn, Cake Smash and Family Photography session.
They say that "cheap photography isn't good and good photography isn't cheap", and I couldn’t agree more. When it comes to Maternity, Newborn and Cake Smash Photography, high quality work is an investment. I would love for potential clients to invest in amazing beautiful Maternity, Newborn and Cake Smash with Lily Hayes Photography. If they don’t, I’m a firm advocate of giving careful thought to the process of professional Maternity, Newborn, Cake Smash and Family Photography. The delicate nature of it, as well as the experience of the photographer. The quality of the equipment and props contributing to the end result. Unfortunately, during these memorable moments, there are no do over's! ♥
