Welcome to Hughes Photography
Imagery for Your Life!
Let Hughes Photography create imagery for your life! These photos are representative of the types of images I’ve taken as a professional and Master photographer, over the years, for clients. As can be seen from my work, my passion is babies, people and animals. I love being able to translate what I see in the camera to a photographic image that will give someone joy and happiness!
I’ve been doing photography for many years and take great personal pleasure in providing my clients with special imagery that reflects their desires, whether it’s a photograph of your newborn baby, a high school senior photograph, family group photo or images of your favorite pet or horse.
The Initial Consultation:
For all photographic sessions, I start by meeting with you and discussing possible shooting locations. I will also investigate locations you may like before the shoot for the best lighting times of the day. I will always consult with you about clothing styles and colors. Clothing can add or distract from your portraits. Whether you choose to have your family, baby and/or pets photographed at your home or at your favorite park will be established during our consultation. Most times, babies are photographed indoors in window light.
Keep in mind…Spring, Summer and Fall are the best times of year for outdoor portraits!
For families with horses, dogs or other pets, I have found Ragle Ranch Regional Park to be the most beautiful and horse appropriate for shoots. Your own ranch may very well be the perfect location, as well. I have been a horse enthusiast and trainer for many years and feel very comfortable around all animals. Having your horse ready before the session is very important as I shoot in beautiful low light situations.
Your environmental portraits will be wonderful keepsakes for decades to come! Prepare to have fun! This will be an enjoyable, stress free experience. Listening carefully to your personal requests is very important to me.
Last, I guarantee my work and if ever necessary, will do a reshoot for free.
