Hey There, I'm Hailey Williams.

(Yes, I know that's also the lead singer of Paramore, but she spells her name wrong, promise.)

I'm like topanga meets Phoebe with a dash of Lorelai and a hint of Ron swanson.

I have the dedication and determination like Topanga, with the heart and uniqueness like Phoebe, the obsession of coffee and wit like Lorelai, and the love of breakfast foods like Ron.

My loves: Black coffee, my smokin' hot husband, our adorable son Archer + dog Winifred, the idea of being organized, Taco Bell, legit friendships,Whiskey + Bourbon, authenticity, fresh produce, the city + quaint downtowns, cooking, reality TV,  baby wearing + breast feeding, Disneyland, happy hour, succulents, marriage, art of all forms, love of all kinds.

My personal philosophy: I believe that this world is a small place and it's our job to show the beauty in it and in each other. We all have our differences and that's what makes us human. It's the acceptance of those differences that make us kind and keeps the world spinning. Love should be the focus of our lives, and the rest will fall into place. Photography allows me to capture that love.

Archer Inspired: Behind the Name

I've gotten the question a lot about why I chose to name my business Archer Inspired. Here's why! When I first fell in love with photography, I wasn't married and still had my maiden name: Archer. So Archer Photography began when I was about 16 and continued on as hobby, yet passion, for quite a few years. After I turned 20, I got married to my best friend and my last name changed to Williams. From there, I still just used the name Archer Photography, but still didn't take it as seriously as I would one day dream to. A couple years later, we found out we were pregnant with our first baby, a little boy. We decided to name him Archer Jacob. That's when Archer Inspired was founded. My son is what pushed me to go full time in my business so I could stay at home with him and follow my dreams. My parents always supported my dreams and my son inspired me to follow them. Archer Inspired is a combination of my roots, of my family, of the birth of my son, and the passion that brought me here today.
