I have had the pleasure of working with Haley Sheffield for a few years now. Her beautiful photography and bright personality have been such a blessing to me. She takes some of the most stunning photographs I’ve ever seen, but it is her shining presence that makes working with her so great. Her favorite quote is “I feel that there is nothing more truly artistic than to love people” (Vincent van Gogh) and the person who has influenced her the most is C.S. Lewis—her heart is clearly made out of gold. I am so impressed by this lovely lady! She owns her own business, Haley Sheffield Photography, and photographs love for a living. While the majority of her work is in wedding photography, the way she photographs flower arrangements makes me weak in the knees. If you want to get to know more about Haley, keep scrolling for the questionnaire below. But first, enjoy some of her gorgeous work.
1. When did you decide to pursue photography full-time?
Truth be told, I began to pursue photography full-time when it began paying more than my part-time job at Starbucks. I knew very little about the road ahead, and absolutely nothing about running a business, but it just felt right.
2. If someone told you five years ago that your business would be as successful as it is today, how would you have reacted?
I never could have anticipated the success my business has received. Truly, the place I find myself in today wasn’t even on my “possibility radar” five years ago. Had someone described a picture of my business today, I would have laughed in disbelief.
