KODY DIANE & HER TEAM
Owner & Photographer
Hey Y'all, I'm Kody Diane Hajda (Hi-Duh)
I'm so glad you're here! As I write this, I'm in my most comfy sweats and graphic tee. I have a bit of a graphic tee obsession, and I'm pretty dang proud of my collection. I love to indulge on tacos of every kind and measure my days based on if it's time for coffee or maybe a margarita if I'm lucky. I'm a wife, mama, doggy mom, and farm girl. I love cuddling with all my critters whether my little red-headed rugrats, my chocolate lab or my cattle.
I was the victim of boring senior portraits my senior year of high school. I had the same forced smile, props and backdrop as all my friends. While the pom-poms and trophies in my pictures showed my accomplishments, the images didn't show who I was at 17, something I will forever regret. I was so uncomfortable in front of the camera, that I didn't even have a genuine smile. My images show the 10 minutes old, frozen smile of a cheerleader who's been posing for pics for all of half time. I caution you, don't be me!
My mission in this dream I get to call a job is to help you feel comfortable in your pictures. Having your photos taken is a weird and awkward feeling, and I get it! But with the right person, someone you connect with and laugh with, you forget about the camera in your face, and that is when the magic happens! I want an entire generation of girls to one day show their granddaughters what it really looked like to be 17 in 2022. From the fashion, the hair, the makeup but more importantly to the emotion and happiness that comes from you and into my lens.
