Ariel Hawkins Photography

The first time I held a camera, I thought this is what I want to do with my creativity! It was also the last time I had any thoughts about doing ANYTHING else.  I have known this is what I am passionate about for many, many years. This is what drives me to be my best every single day. This is what I love to do. This is what keeps me creative. This is my life, and I am so glad I get to share it with everyone! 

My Purpose

To make beautiful memories for you, your family and friends! We do this together through many mediums which include custom sessions tailored to your needs, beautifully crafted albums, canvases and archival prints ready to hang on your walls!

As well as to document my son, who is silly beyond words..... 

Who am I?

I am a daughter, a wife, a mother, a sister, an aunt, a friend, and an artist. I know it sounds oh so cliche but I'm going to say it anyway, I see life through the viewfinder. It's weird but I can look at anything and "see" a photograph. I guess it's part of why I am an artist. I have always been involved with art from a  very early age. I have dabbled in almost anything and everything that is art. You name it, I've done it! 

Out of all the mediums I have been introduced to, photography is my all time favorite. It gives me a chance to present art in a way that speaks to the viewer, and is everlasting. I live for presenting my work to my clients, it is what makes my job so rewarding. Being able to say that I had a part in someone's life is pretty awesome if I don't say so myself. 

I love what I do. There is no better feeling in the world than waking up and getting ready to create something. I know that my child will grow up appreciating what art is. He will have a great understanding of what it does for the world. He is my joy, my pride and my love. I try to involve him in the things that I do in hopes that one day he will have the great ability to create what he wants in life as well.

I create highly personal artwork using my eye and my tools. I strive to capture every moment while it's happening. I am extremely personable, but also great at being able to blend in as to not be noticed. I know how important it is to have patience, kindness and flexibility. I am a big kid at heart and I consider everyone I work with to be an extended part of my family!





These are my two best friends, my husband and son. They are the reason, I do what I do. My inspiration and my favorite people in the whole wide world!

Then I want to see you again, and again! What's better than freebies? Refer a friend for some sweet incentives. 

Refer a Friend

Did you know when you refer a friend to AHP you get something special as well?! Supporting local artist is a HUGE deal to me and I like to give back to those that help out, so thanks! Referrals are paid with a VISA gift card. There are different amounts for what has been referred to AHP. In order to receive your VISA gift card your referral needs to book a session and pay in full. 

Special gifts when you book another session! 

When you book another session with AHP you will receive little extra's that are normally not included with your package. I love goodies! Also ask me about the CLIENT FOR LIFE PROGRAM! 

Photography is a journey that is constantly traveled and explored, and new experiences are right around the corner. I am so humbled to be able to share all of those experiences with every person I meet and work with!
