Why Colleen Hight Photography?

I am a full-service portrait photographer, which means I guide you all the way through to having your images up on walls, stored in albums, or preserved in whatever way you will enjoy them best. You won’t be left trying to figure out why the picture got cropped funny, or why the colors don’t look the same as when you saw them with me.

I work with you to understand your needs  so your session is designed just for you and your family.  You will have everything you need to prepare for your family’s session so you can enjoy it.  And because we will have worked closely to coordinate preferences for colors and style, your images will capture the beauty of your family’s relationships and fit perfectly in your home.

If you are ready for a portrait experience that creates more than files, if you are ready to see your family on your walls where you can find joy in them every day, and maybe most importantly because I work hard to make your session fun.  So you are left with not only beautiful portraits, but fun, sweet, precious memories that you will be reminded of every time you see your images.

Kind words

Our experience was wonderful!  Colleen was so easy to get along with and flexible with our family.  She took some wonderful posed and natural shots.  In fact one of my favorites is a picture of us laughing at each other not posing for the camera.  It truly captures our family.

Family Session

Our experience was friendly, comfortable, and easy – the the turn-around time on the photos was great!  The best was the hot chocolate on a very cold day!  But seriously, it was the interaction with the kids to keep them engaged

Meet Colleen

Outside of photography, I am a wife and the luckiest mom on earth to two very sweet, very energetic boys.

I love fashion blogs, although my standard uniform is jeans and a t-shirt.  My favorite family activity is golfing, and I hope like crazy my little ones love it too (foursome!).  I think relaxing on the couch with takeout and a movie makes a great date night.  A good chick flick and a bag of Ghiradelli Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramels are tied for my biggest guilty pleasures.  Especially together.  I love to read, and really love learning new things.

When I discovered photography, I found the first thing I had ever had an inexhaustible desire to continue learning about.  And luckily… there’s always something more to learn!  If I’m not with a client or with my family, you can find in and around Alpharetta, learning more about the many facets that make photography so fascinating to me.

Why Professional Portraits?

Professional images tell the story of your family as it grows. We all know how fleeting that sweet, squishy newborn phase is, and for me there is nothing more special than getting to capture those first gorgeous images of a brand new little person. They are that little for such a short time, and being able to capture that is nothing short of magical.

And it doesn’t stop there. Our children insist on changing and growing and becoming even more amazing as soon as we turn our backs.  Those curls on her head? That adorable face that he makes all. the. time.?  How she snuggles into you, the way he loves to make you laugh?  Professional portrait sessions are the perfect way to document all those adorable, endearing attributes that make your family you, before they give way to the next stage.

As a professional photographer, it is my goal and my joy to document your family’s story with images you will love, display, and enjoy for a lifetime!

Why I Love Being a Photographer in Alpharetta!

Alpharetta has a lot going on in itself, but it also has the distinction of offering easy access to lots more venues north or south.  To the south of course you can get to MARTA or anything going on in Atlanta, and to the north there is easy access to the North Georgia mountains and several lakes. Senior citizens, Families, and Young people alike live here, work here, and can thrive/ have fun here. I like how the community has events for families especially with kids, like a Touch-a-Truck day at Wills Park where children can see all different kinds of trucks, 4th of July events, Festivals, Taste of Alpharetta, and of course Food Truck nights in the summer. Downtown areas and shopping districts like Avalon provide a fun and immersive place to hangout with friends and family, and there are always new restaurants or activities to do geared towards all ages.  No surprise Alpharetta consistently ranks at the top of several “Best City” lists!
