My name is Hailey Benson. I am a photography student at Lake Area Tech in Watertown, South Dakota.

As a photographer, I want to capture the goofy, fun, and in-between moments that happen during a shoot. Those pictures make the best memories. Of course, my goal is just like every other photographers goal, which is to capture memories and events for people to cherish them forever.

You could say I am the “social butterfly” of everything. I love interacting and meeting new people and getting to know their stories. I am up for any challenge and I love new adventures. My favorite part about taking pictures of people is when we can both have a fun experience where everyone is laughing and having fun! Those are the moments I live for and what makes my profession worth it.
