Haley Walker has spent years photographing weddings and families, learning the art of storytelling and cultivating an ability to recognize and capture joy. She has also traveled extensively working with nonprofits to help them tell their stories, through both words and photos. Her heart is to share the innate value in people, to remind them of their worth, and to celebrate their gifts. She looks for the in-between, easily missed moments and emotions and does her best to capture those. Haley hopes that her photos will both invite others to recognize beauty and call them to action.
Haley has attended Midtown since she moved back to Nashville in 2014, and has been overwhelmed by the rich friendships she’s found in the Midtown community. The image used for the Meeting Jesus series was taken in Thailand in 2016, while working alongside an organization who serves families living in a large waste disposal area. The image, like the Holy Spirit’s call in Luke, evokes a sense of freedom and courage to proclaim goodness, amidst even the most difficult, unexpected circumstances.
