Thursday // Alumni Feature – Hailey Huggins

I love the hands on training at IPS. The instructors are always close by and ready to answer questions. The assignments and “tests” were so helpful.  They really push you to practice the things you’ve learned. I loved the days where we would go out on a shoot to see “the pros” work their magic.

One of the best experiences was having a family shoot at the end of a week where we learned lighting. I was on my own and had to practice the skills and tools that I had learned that week. Using the instructions outside of the classroom takes it to a whole new level.



Most of all, my favorite part of IPS is the friendships that I’ve made there. I’ ve met some of my best photographer buddies there, and the friendships don’t end with photography!

I photograph people. They’re my favorite. Meeting them, learning about them, and becoming friends with them. When I go into a shoot, whether it be a wedding or portrait session, I keep 3 things in mind: make it be fun, get real and natural photographs, and keep it stylish.

During a wedding, it’s all about the story of the day. It’s about two people in love coming together to be married. It’s about the bride and groom being surrounded by their favorite people to celebrate their commitment to each other.

During a family session, it’s about who they are as a family and what they do for fun. For some that’s playing in the their back yard or reading their favorite books in their playroom. For others it’s playing football at the park or enjoying a picnic.
