Meet the Photographer
Owner & Photographer of the photography of haley katherine
Photographing life's precious moments Since 2010
Let me introduce myself. My name is Haley Katherine Roksandich (last name pronounced Rock-sand-itch). I was born in Georgia and lived there most of my life. I married a military man in 2012 and once he left the Air Force, we re-located to Wilmington, NC with our beautiful daughter and fur baby. We have since then had our second child, a handsome baby boy and now our family is complete.
I took courses in cosmetology my junior and senior year of high school thinking I wanted to be a hair stylist or nail technician. Then after school I decided to switch my major to business because it was mostly online and I could work and still take classes. I felt like that wasn't what I wanted to do at the time so I switched again to early childhood education because I love kids. I graduated from ECE at Middle Georgia Technical College and received my tech school diploma in 2010. Come to find out, that was also not my calling. I finally found a calling in customer service but I still had a passion for the arts. Back then I was a sketch artist so I would draw portraits of people from photos provided. I picked up my first camera in 2010 so I could have high resolution images to draw from. That's when I found my love for photography.
With that being said, I am a self taught, natural light photographer. I've learned everything I know through trial, error and YouTube. I love bold, dramatic images with pops of color. My specialty is photographing fashion, high school seniors and strong, beautiful young women but I also love couples, expecting mothers, kids and weddings. It's been a long road but I'm finally at a point where I love my work and love everything about what I do.
A few other things about me...
I am a food lover but not a good cook. I'm a hopeless romantic and believe in candle lit dinners, love notes and cuddles by a fireplace. I love all music but you will find more indie, folk, pop, pop punk and alternative pop on my Spotify playlist. I love, love, LOVE watching TV shows and have considered starting a Netflix club which is like book club but instead you get together to discuss the most recent show you've watched. My family is my everything and my kids are my world, rock, heart and soul all rolled into one. I'm a work-at-home mom and I love it so much. Being able to raise my babies and have my photography business at the same time is the most rewarding thing in my life. I also own two etsy stores, sweetsarahlynns.etsy.com and sweetsarahscandleco.etsy.com. Pop over there today and check them out!
