Okay, for the record, I do not have a photography studio.  Nope.  No backdrops, no lighting setup and certainly, no odd Easter props.  As a photographer with a heap of passion for the art, I strive for the greatest quality in an end result.  The premise of what I do stems from my primary goal, which is for you to actually ‘feel’ your images.  Truly.  This is my sole purpose as a photographer.  It’s a simple concept, really.  A simple concept with a priceless result.  What you can expect is a casual style session filled only with genuine moments and affection.  Sure, I may offer a little guidance but, well, the rest can be a bit magical.  I’ve watched it.  Over and over again.  This is much more than a little thing I do, friends.  This is a passion for me and I throw my heart and soul into each of my sessions to be sure that I reach my goal as well as provide you with images that exceed your expectations.  AND, word on the street is that a Skye Hatten Photography session is pretty stinkin’ fun!

Each session includes time prior to go over what you’re looking for so that I can make sure I capture it.  From location, what to wear, crazy obsessions, favorite foods, we’ll cover it so that you can be sure you’re getting the very most from our photo experience.


No studio, eh?  No problem.  Location, location, location.  The possibilities are endless…parks, lakes, rivers, the backyard, urban setting, you name it.  We’ll brainstorm in more detail to finalize a perfect location.

The perfect location may in fact be at your home.  I love at-home sessions because these really do allow me to capture exactly who you really are.  I may ask you to show me around your home so that we can find the perfect lighting situation and I may talk you into moving a few pieces of furniture around but I promise, promise, promise not to judge you if we find questionable items under the cushions.


Lifestyle newborn sessions are for babies less than two weeks old.  The premise behind a lifestyle newborn session is to record a memory.  This time frame passes so very quickly and from experience, I now know the actual aspects I wish that I had captured from these times in my life.  For a warm, sleepy, happy baby, I’ll have you turn your heat up (or AC off in the summer) and then feed your baby until they are good and full.  These non-rushed sessions only occur in a very relaxed setting where I get to join your lives for 2-3 hours.  Please be sure to peek at my FAQ page for additional information on reserving these newborn sessions.


I often post a sneak peek or two from our session on Facebook and/or my blog within the first few days of our session.  Within 2-3 weeks of your session, I then will contact you with a link and password for you to view your online gallery.  You will have two weeks from this date to place your order.  Payment must be made in full before I can process.  Orders are generally fulfilled within two weeks of payment.  Custom products such as coffee table books and gallery wraps may take a little longer.

Should additional time be necessary for placing an order, online galleries may be posted for an additional $25/week.
