“Amazing results for such a reasonable price! Newborn pictures are such a skill & Cynthia is definitely well practiced with handling little ones! Our son wasn’t quite ready to eat before his session, we were so nervous he would have a complete meltdown and be so uncooperative for pictures. But Cynthia did such a great job keeping him calm and comfortable! He didn’t even start to fuss until closer to the end of our session! She works so quickly & seamlessly that we were able to stop & feed him with time to spare at the end! Of course, the pictures turned out wonderful, we got everything we hoped for.” – Alexis L.

“I have always wanted to do some pinup style photos, I was finally able to schedule an appointment. I was really nervous to do this so I brought a friend to encourage me. Aleycia made us both feel welcome in her studio. She also let me know how beautiful I looked and she was very helpful in directing me on how to pose and helped guide me with facial expressions. I really enjoyed how she got to know me while she was doing my hair and makeup. She is an amazing artist! This was one of the best things I have ever done! I will definitely be doing another shoot with her in the near future. I felt so pretty when I was all done, I highly recommend doing this for yourself.” – Kristin W.
Darrin Hackney Photography
Darrin Hackney Photography has always had a keen eye, particularly in the art of people watching from behind the bar. The restaurant and bar industry taught him how to feel the emotion of the moments surrounding him. In a weird crazy way, the bar business prepared Darrin to photograph weddings. On your wedding day, they mostly fly by the seat of their pants, hitting special markers along the way like a bride walking down the aisle, getting the party started while riding a party bus to ultimately being surrounded by a group of folks that have been drinking all night.
Darrin never rattled by your crazy friends. He learned how to understand and comfort clients at some of the happiest, surprising, or even sad moments in their life. The big day or any important milestones can be some of the most vulnerable or stressful times for anyone, let alone in front of a camera. Darrin earns the trust to relax his clients before a shoot, shaking the jitters away to reveal those authentic emotions in an artistic, strategic storytelling photo.
Weddings, Headshots, Portraits, Seniors
“Darrin shot my headshots and did a tremendous job! He put the time in to plan the shoot and location, his editing skills are excellent, and he made the shoot fun! I appreciated his prompt communication as well! Highly recommend!” – Natalie D.
