I'm a maternity + newborn photographer with 13 years under my belt. I currently live in Winston-Salem, NC with my husband, Jack. I'm slightly sarcastic and overly organized (total enneagram 6). I'm also obsessed with Parks and Recreation and may or may not have incorporated April's wedding vows into our destination wedding ceremony. I love capturing families all over the world. I'm always planning my next worldly adventure, most of the time with amazing clients!
Photographs have become a huge part of my life story personally, and I treat every session as if I were the one receiving the memories. I cannot wait to be on this journey with you and start your next grand adventure!
If I learned one thing from my life journey, it's that photos are so important for you to be able to look back on. Especially those huge milestones in your life. I used to go through my parents photo albums from when I was a kid and I was always disappointed in the lack of memories captured. When my dad became diagnosed with end-stage cancer, I made it my goal to capture as many memories as possible, and every milestone that came in life.
When choosing a Durham photographer for your motherhood sessions, you need someone who will be able to make you feel comfortable in your own skin, while capturing the love you have for your family. You want to be smiling, laughing, and relaxed throughout the entire process. You want to trust them 100%, and to be friends. So, if you're looking for a fun photographer with a photography style you'll love forever, hello. You've come to the right website.
Don't worry - I guide every couple and family through their portrait session, I will be the super organized aunt who has a checklist of your must-have photos and the best bad dad jokes in her back pocket. The fun will be non-stop throughout your experience - as it should be.
It feels way longer, but I've been a Durham Maternity and Newborn Photographer for over 13 years! Watching families grow over the years and capturing their journey brings so much joy to my heart. I've also had the privilege of working side by side with my husband over the past 6 years to capture my clients' memories! He is the goofball making all the kids laugh (and the adults too). I love every single second of being a Durham Maternity and Newborn photographer and couldn't ask for a better career.
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 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!
