That is just what portraiture is all about -- creating a beautiful image that captures your family or child or even your event just as they were at that very moment in time.

I am Liz Hayford, owner and photographer for Windy Hill Photography. I work on location with natural light, and I am located in a small town in the beautiful Mid-Coast area of Maine.

    Liz was without a doubt the best choice I could have made for my 30th birthday party. As soon as we met, I knew it was going to be a great night. Her upbeat personality and easy laugh put everyone at ease immediately and made for some great photos. She was the consummate professional throughout the night, but somehow felt instantly like a part of the group.

    She was flexible and easygoing, willing to take candid photos, photo booth shots, and get out in the boat to take pictures of our cabins and group from the lake. She even took some soulful shots our our party's piñata Peanie, who became a treasured member of the group. Her photos were beyond even my high expectations, really capturing the beauty of the setting and the love and friendship of everyone in the group.

    I will be keeping in touch with Liz well into the future. When my wedding date is set, she will be my first call.

Question and answer

Q. What types of customers have you worked with?

A. My most common types of jobs are family sesssions, which is great because I love photographing families together. Next would be Seniors, then Weddings and finally Children. I am so incredibly lucky that I get to do what I do and get paid for it, I love every type of session for different reasons. I love chatting with my seniors and finding out about their plans for their future. Weddings are just an amazing day of love and connection, there is nothing else quite as exhilarating or exhausting(hehe). And children are just fun because you never know what they will do or how they will react to your camera. They keep you on your toes and make sure you are absolutely present in the moment with them. LOVE IT all!!!!

Q. What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

A. I think that when you are looking to hire a photographer you should first be sure that the images you see on their website or blog are the kind of images you are wanting. Don't go to a photographer who's website is full of bright, saturated, colorful photos and expect to get anything but that at your session. I also believe that you should always follow your first impression of anyone, including a photographer. If you get a bad first impression from your communications, be it email, phone call or face to face meeting heed that feeling and don't hire that photographer. Your personality and that of the photographer have to mesh in order to have a spectacularly successful session and if your first impression is negative my guess is that your personalities are not going to mesh well.
