I (Haleigh) have been a photographer for over 13 years and I love that I get to meet new people weekly from all walks of life! I started my journey in theatre, have a degree in theatrical lighting design, and even worked for the Mouse (Disney) for a short stint. I realized I wasn't a 9-5 kind of gal and worked my way to owning my own business. Jack started photographing with me in 2018 and officially joined the business full-time in July of 2022. We are the ultimate husband and wife team full of bad dad jokes, bubble machines, and capturing the best memories.
Some other quick facts about us!
• We met in college doing theatre and I did not have the kindest first words for Jack. He was hooked immediately! We've been together for almost a decade.
• We got married on July 29, 2020 in the middle of the pandemic. We had an intimate wedding in the Maroon Bells in Aspen, Colorado!
• Our wedding photo was featured on a billboard as a surprise from one of our corporate clients!

a peek into our winston-salem studio
Our brand new studio is located in Winston-Salem on the border of Lewisville and Clemmons. After walking through the private entrance, you'll find a variety of furniture for your family to use, including a bed, couch, rocking chair, and crib. A fireplace is also on site for those cozy holiday photos! Our studio has a full client closet for moms and babies, as well as a private bathroom and changing table for little ones.
While your kids are waiting for their turn, they can play at the table with a variety of sanitized toys and coloring sheets! Photoshoots are a lot of hard work, so a full coffee and snack bar are provided for you, as well as a fridge of water and juice boxes for the kids.

Family plays a huge role in my life. Although I don't have any kids of my own, my pups have always been like children to me! We make it a point to have game nights each week with our family. Some of our favorites include Rummy, Yahtzee, Catan, Bears vs Babies, and basically all kinds of board games.
We also love exploring the great outdoors as a family and you can often find us hiking together!

Jack and I LOVE traveling and exploring new places. We have a scratch-off world map to mark everywhere we've been together! We also collect magnets from each new place we visit.
Since meeting, Jack and I have travelled all across the country together for fun and work! From Virginia, New Jersey, and New York weddings, to Utah theatre and road trips to the Grand Canyon and Joshua Tree, there's no place we won't go for a great adventure.

Jack and I bonded on our love of Parks and Recreation (and honestly, all Michael Schur shows). Jack is the Andy to my April and we both used pieces of their wedding vows in our own vows to each other. We may or may not also have matching Mouse Rat pajama sets!!
Chris Pratt (Andy Dwyer, Star Lord, Owen Grady) even sent us a signed photo for our wedding and we definitely had a fan-girl moment.

Having grown up in New Jersey, the biggest thing I missed living in Florida is seasons. That's one reason we moved to North Carolina! Fall is my absolute favorite, from the weather to the scents. Our house and my car pretty much smell like fall year round! I have no shame in loving a good pumpkin spice latte and playing in fall leaves when I'm able to visit home.

I absolutely love music and really don't dislike any type! Jack never knows what will be playing when he gets in the car with me. One week it's 90's throwbacks, the next is full Panic! at the Disco or my favorite indie band of the week. Other times, I'm rapping every word to Eminem. You never know!
One of the greatest moments in my life was meeting my favorite band (Panic! at the Disco)'s lead singer, Brendon Urie! He said he loved my shirt, gave me a hug, and I about died.

If you’re on the fence, book with Haleigh now! I rarely write reviews, but I had the most amazing experience for my maternity and newborn photo shoots.
If you are like me and feel super awkward in front of the camera, this is the photographer for you. She was excellent at gently guiding me with what to do step-by-step for each pose- and with humor and kindness. An experience that I thought would be anxiety-provoking was such unexpected self-care.
Plus the AMAZING closet with inclusive sizing was the best!
I am extremely blown away by the beautiful photography that captured the magic of my pregnancy and the new addition to our family in my daughter’s newborn shoot. The entire experience of working with Haleigh was amazing, and I would work with her again in a heartbeat. She’s fun, the ultimate hype woman and made the process as stress free as possible, but also extremely professional and truly talented. The pictures are gorgeous! She was always punctual, patient, kind, flexible, provided amazing wardrobe options and always made sure that we captured everything I had envisioned. Her hubby worked with us at the newborn shoot and was amazing with getting smiles from my toddler who was not so sure about it at first. I’m so grateful to have worked with such a great team to capture the magic of these family milestones!
Haleigh was amazing for our motherhood bundle session. Communicating with her is a total breeze! The maternity wardrobe she has was a huge plus not having to worry about it and we met before the photoshoot to see what worked. Our baby arrived earlier than his anticipated due date and Haleigh was super easy to work with on moving the dates around to capture the perfect pictures. Everything was amazing, I would highly recommend Haleigh!
Haleigh and Jack are sensational! Haleigh has followed me through the journey from pregnancy to one year and will for many more years to come. I trust her to capture fleeting moments and she does, flawlessly. It takes a special person to work with children, let alone babies and she has the magic touch. I HIGHLY recommend Haleigh to everyone that I know. I am so thankful to both she and Jack for making our memories last a lifetime.
I’ve known Haleigh and Jack as friends for many years so I wasn’t expecting anything less than the best but they went above and beyond to accommodate a very last minute session request. My husband and I wanted to announce our pregnancy through a holiday card but knew we needed to act fast. I had admired Haleigh’s work the last couple years and realized she would be the perfect person to help with this special/secret project. Despite being completely booked for the holidays, she set up a quick 30 minute session, guided my husband and I efficiently and effectively through the session (models we are not!) and delivered a stunning variety of images to us within DAYS! She’s the best of the best (as a photographer AND person) and we’d recommend her over and over again!!!
One of the best photo shoots I’ve ever had! I think we’ve all had the experience of feeling great in an outfit only to see a photo of us afterwards and it not match how we thought we looked. Seeing our family photos was the first time I’ve ever as beautiful in the photo as I did the day of the shoot! She was also amazing with my energetic and grumpy toddler and let us move at his pace! Such a great and relaxing experience!
I loved working with Haleigh! I decided to have a "Fresh 48" session for my newborn just a few days before he was born! She was quick to answer and flexible to accommodate our session with a short notice!
During the session day, at the hospital, she arrived on time and was very understanding of our little delay - baby was not ready when she arrived. Also, considering the covid situation, she took all precautions to make sure we had a safe photo session!
The pictures came out perfect - she did a fantastic job in capturing all the happiness and love we were feeling with our newborn finally with us! Thank you, Haleigh!!!
I am so glad that I stumbled across Haleigh Nicole Photography! I can’t say enough about how professional she is and the quality of work that she provides. Haleigh responds so quickly and answered all of my questions for our family's session. Our family decided to take family photos when we were on vacation in Orlando. Our one year old was off his schedule and not feeling his best. Haleigh accommodate our last minute location change and came to our resort to capture some gorgeous photos! She allowed our family to decide what shots we wanted while at the same time providing tips on how we should pose and be paired up!
We will be forever grateful of the beautiful images she captured of this time in our lives. We will forever treasure the photos!
Haleigh was such a joy to work with! Being 28 weeks pregnant you tend to feel like a beluga whale and she made me feel comfortable and beautiful behind the lens! My crazy two year old was also involved in the shoot..... she was so patient with him not wanting to cooperate! I couldn’t be happier with the results of the photos! How do you choose favorites when they are ALL your favorite?! We plan on using Haleigh when our new babe arrives this summer for his fresh 48 session! Highly recommend Haleigh for all your photo needs!
I love Haleigh's work. She is awesome and like a family to us. Haleigh is so good at listening to ours concern and what I vision. She really makes my vision come to life. She is so good with details and she is so quick about getting back with pictures.
We met Haleigh from my best friend, I loved the photos she took for them! I had Wardrobe questions, date changes, crazy kiddos and she did not skip a beat everything was answered quickly and handled so professionally. We instantly clicked and the kids love her! The amount of patience Haleigh has is absolutely incredible, she made us all feel so comfortable like we’ve known her forever. The kids personalities were caught in every photo, from every smirk to big smile. Every picture turned out so beautiful and we couldn’t be anymore grateful for the time she spent on everything for us!
My father in law who does not get around well and was struggling to be there for our pictures. Haleigh & Jack made every accommodation to us to make sure we got all the special shots with him as well as my whole family. So if you’re looking for an amazing photographer, who is beyond helpful and has their heart completely in their work, she is your girl!
Haleigh & her husband were exceptional to work with! We wanted to do sunrise maternity photos with our dog and the images turned out amazing. She was able to help us find an amazing location, gave great direction, and was super fun & made the whole experience easy! She was also very quick about getting us our photos afterwards!
