Summer Senior Photography Session
What’s a great way to celebrate school being out? By having a summer senior photography session!
Contact us today for your session.
Beating The Heat
For Olivia’s session we started out in the studio. During the summer months it’s best to do indoor pictures during the day and outdoor pictures in the evening. It ensures that our client looks their best and hasn’t had the humidity effect their appearance. When doing indoor pictures we can utilize different lighting and backgrounds. Olivia brought a few sets of clothing and necklaces as statement pieces that made each image unique. We always encourage our seniors to add their own flair when it comes to their sessions. Want some ideas on what to wear? Check out our guide here.
While she was having her session she wanted to do her drape portrait for school. We are the leading school photography company in the area and love it when our seniors do their school pictures with us! If you’re interested in reading about our school photography go here.
Since our studio is right near the ocean we wanted to do beach portraits to wrap things up. Late afternoon or early evening is the best time do to outdoor pictures. The lighting from the setting sun in addition to professional photographic techniques make for amazing images. Time management is also another thing photographers need to keep in mind. In order to get the great sunset shots make sure to do any other outdoor pictures before in a timely manner. A big mistake in photography is missing amazing pictures because proper time management wasn’t used. We started the outdoor portion in an urban downtown area. Then we moved on to a fishing pier and finished up on the beach. Olivia also wanted to include her sister in some of the pictures which we were happy to do. We love when our seniors want to include a friend or family member in their session. It makes for more memorable pictures and adds a bit of fun to the session!

Newborn Photography Portraits
Families are you looking to celebrate the birth of your infant? Then contact us for newborn photography portraits today!
Click here to contact us today for your appointment.
On today’s session we had one week old Sebastian. We love photographing infants as they are easy to position and have a good temperament. Sebastian was a dream to work with. This provided us with many amazing images from his photo shoot. When working with calm infants as a photographer, it’s a great time to use photography props. They not only provide comfort for the child but also an eye catching appeal. We strive to make sure that every infant we work with are well taken care of. Creative ways to add comfort to your newborn sessions is by adding in comfy blankets or hats or by swaddling. This also helps to keep the child calm during pictures. Here are some examples:
For this session the family wanted to add personal elements to Sebastian’s photo’s. They had custom a dinosaur hat made that they thought would go perfectly with his pictures. Etsy is a great place to find unique photography props. The creator of this adorable hat has her own Etsy shop. View her store and products here.
They also wanted to add in elements from the church where Sebastian’s father is the campus pastor. We love it when families are able to incorporate their everyday life into their photos.
Including You In The Newborn Session
We always want the infant’s family to be a part of their child’s photography session. When parents join in the session, we are able to try different lighting techniques to create even more beautiful photographic pictures. For these images we were able to cast shadows and add more depth, but also highlight the colors that were present.

Condo Real Estate

To schedule your professional real estate pictures, contact us today.
How To Improve Your Real Estate Sales
In today’s current market, being able to sell your home or real estate can either be boosted or hindered by good photos. Good lighting techniques and proper shooting angles of the professional photography trade can instantly improve any listing. With realty properties they typically decrease in price in order to sell. With stellar pictures, you won’t have to settle for a lower asking price. The real estate market has seen a surge in homes selling for more than the asking price. Why? Because of the use of professional photography, rather than an amateur photographer. Professional home staging also improves the chances of your property being on the market for a shorter time. If you want to include home staging in your real estate, check out this helpful source.
Best Time For Realty Pictures
One of the things to consider when it comes to professional realty photography is the lighting. The best time for amazing lighting is mid morning until the afternoon. This condo is a wonderful example of utilizing the natural day light that was coming in through the windows. It added the photographic appeal that home buyers are looking for. The open hard wood floor plan allowed the light from the windows to bounce off of it and added extra lighting to the pictures. Making sure to know how to work the lighting with certain angles is very important and can make or break any image. The pictures below were taken using the panoramic method. It provides potential home buyers with a better idea of the layout of the space and showcases the natural lighting coming in from both sides of the property.
A technique that we use is called High Dynamic Range (HDR) Photography. This method requires the blending of 7 images of various exposures. The result is an image with a broad range of tones enabling the viewer to see details in the highlights and shadows. Combining this technique with panoramic images where 4 HDR images are stitched together into one amazing image. Elevate your asking price by using these advanced techniques! Here are a few more images from our condo real estate shoot.

Unique Photography Props
When you’re taking pictures outside, it’s always best to think outside the box for prop ideas. On this shoot, we thought it would be wonderful to add vintage vehicles into the shoot. They added to the overall rustic chic look Haley had been wanting for her senior session. What are some different and unique props you would like to incorporate into your pictures? Outfits also help make any image stand out. When planning your session, think of what outfit will go with the props you have in mind. Here’s our senior photography What to Wear guide.
For Haley’s session, we took her to the country. It was a beautiful day for outdoor pictures, and the scenery was perfect for the lighting on the shots we were wanting. For professional photographs, it is important to have good lighting. Late afternoon is the best time for any outdoor pictures. Afternoon light offers less shadows which creates better portraits. The foliage is the most photographically appealing and provide a natural back drop for our seniors.
For something to contrast the rural setting from the first portion of the session, we took her to an urban downtown area. The textures in the iron gate and graffiti in the alleys really made both locations stand apart from each other. Both settings added in elements that showcased Haley’s diverse taste and interests. At Hayne Photographers, we love making sure our senior portraits show off each senior’s own unique personality.
Make sure to book your senior session today! We offer year round bookings for any season of the year.

TEDx – Event Photography
Are you looking for someone to cover your TEDx event? Maybe you are looking for a photographer for your corporate event. If so, we would love to provide you more information on our event photography. Contact us today for more details.
Event photography is always very interesting because we get to photograph cool and eclectic events. We recently photographed the TEDx Hampton Roads event. Not only was it an interesting event to photographically cover, it was educational as well. When we are photographing events we are documenting all that is happening. We also are trying to capture the excitement of the event as well. We also try to photograph the behind the scenes photos. The companies that we photograph for appreciate these types of photos. It really shines on the media and technical end of the event which is important to a successful event.
You may be asking yourself, what is a TEDx event? Well, it is a local gathering event where TED like talks and videos that were previously recorded at TED conferences are shared. The content of each TEDx event is unique to their event. TED events use live speakers and videos that are idea focused. They generally cover a wide range of ideas and subjects. These subjects generally help us learn, inspire or provoke conversations that matter.
TEDx events generally have a variety of diverse issues and voices. The main goal of these events is to just spark conversation and connect people through community.
Now that you understand the TEDx events, you can imagine how enjoyable it is to photograph this type of event!
Here are some images of just a few speakers that shared at this TEDx event.

Live Band Photo
Event photography covers a wide range of types of events. It can be anything from a birthday celebration to a sporting event, from a military event to corporate parties. Event photography covers any event that you would like to documented in pictures.
We recently photographed a live band that was performing for a student event. We were able to capture some pretty awesome live band photos. When photographing a performing band, we want to capture the excitement. We want to capture the excitement of the musicians as well as the crowd that is in attendance.
For this live band photo shoot there were elements of the performance that helped enhance the images. The hazers and the lights create depth and texture to the photos where as without them, the image may seem flat.
Check out all the excitement of this live band photography. I think that you will agree that everyone was having a great time!

Family Portrait Photographer

Contact us today for more information.
Fun Family Portraits
We love to photograph families. We always strive to capture beautiful family photos. When we are photographing a family portrait session, we capture a variety of photos.
The Samuelson family took time to carefully coordinate their outfits. This is so important when it comes to family portraits. As a photographer you want everyone to blend, not necessarily match. When you use punches of color in your accessories, this creates interest in your photos. An example of that would be dad’s red tie. Another example would be the daughters’ red flower. In this family portrait session, there are a few colors woven throughout each of the family members. Red, black and white were colors that all family members has incorporated into each outfit. Texture in your outfits also bring interest to photographs. Dad’s jackets and the son’s vest all have an element of texture bringing dimension to their portraits.
This family is a great example of “what to wear” on your family portrait session.
Props for Family Portraits
We often incorporate props in our portrait sessions. It may be a chair, couch or a settee. We use a variety of props in our photo shoots. We do this to add interest to a photo session. It often helps with creative posing as well. Here are a few family photos where we used an antique settee.
Candid Family Portraits
When we add a candid feel to our portrait sessions it not only creates visual interest, but also creates purchasing options for our clients.
What could be more fun on a beautiful fall day then tossing some leaves.
I just love this picture. The kids expressions in this family photo are priceless!

NASCAR Nationwide Series Photography – Richmond International Raceway
Are you looking for a commercial photographer for your business photography? Contact us today for more information.
NASCAR Sprint Cup Practice and Qualifying Photos
This weekend we had the privilege of hanging out and photographing our favorite sport. We took photos all day at the Richmond International Raceway. We started the day at 9:00 AM with NASCAR Sprint Cup practice.
The morning was filled with excitement as cars took the field. They were in and out of the garage area. All morning the were tweaking to get the fastest car possible for the Federated Auto Parts 400.
The garages were hectic with crews adjusting their cars during practice. With all of the hectic-ness of the day, it makes it easy to stay busy photographing.
NASCAR Nationwide Wide Series Qualifying Photos
The afternoon at Richmond International Raceway was filled with qualifying. The first qualifying segment of the day belonged to the Nationwide Series. With 43 cars in the field, all would make the starting line up. Their qualifying would simply determine their starting position, not if someone would not make the field.
Kyle Busch, driving for JGR would end up on top taking the pole position for the Nationwide race. Landon Cassill of JD Motorsports would qualify 11th for the Nationwide Race. With top Sprint Cup drivers in the field, Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick, Kyle Larson and Matt Kenseth, they would give the Nationwide drivers a run for their money.
NASCAR Sprint Cup Qualifying Photos
As the qualifying segment began for the Sprint Cup drivers, we knew that there would be a frenzy on the racetrack. We also knew that with a frenzy their would be plenty of opportunity for great NASCAR photos. The reason we knew that all the drivers would head out immediately was because of cloud cover. In NASCAR, the cloud cover cools the track therefore the cars go faster. For qualifying you want the fastest time possible. The faster you are the better line up for the NASCAR race and the better pit selection you will have.
Brad Keselowski laid down the fastest lap time making him the pole sitter for the NASCAR Federated Auto Parts 500. Jeff Gordon will be sitting outside on row 1 with the second fasted qualifying time.
If you missed the Brickyard where Jeff Gordon took home the trophy, check out some of our NASCAR photos from the race.
NASCAR Nationwide Series VA529 College Savings Plan 250
The sun was setting at the Richmond International Raceway as the skydivers plunged from an airplane thousands of feet above. With the sun setting and a gorgeous sky we knew the the photos of the skydivers would be spectacular.
From green flag to checkered flag, we were in a night racing situation. We were photographing after sunset, late into the evening presents challenges. Fortunately if you have the right photography gear, fast lenses and fast cameras, you can capture some great NASCAR photos. With dim lighting and fast moving subjects the challenge can be intimidating. Knowing the sport certainly helps with getting key figures and key shots through the NASCAR race.
NASCAR Nationwide Series Winner – Kyle Busch Photos
The the checkered flag fell, Kyle Busch of JGR won the race in a dominating fashion. He lead every single lap of the VA529 College Savings Plan 250.
Check back soon for lots more NASCAR photos coming soon.

NASCAR The Brickyard Sports Photos
In sports photography, there is no greater sports event to photograph then NASCAR. I am sure that everyone would have their own opinion, so this one is definitely mine. Scott and I have been avid fans of NASCAR for the 27 years that we have been married. My love for the sport began as a small child. My dad would pack us up in the Winnabego and off we would go to the races. We would always arrive days before the NASCAR race to get the full experience of the track. Practice, meet and greets with the NASCAR drivers, you name it, we did it.
Now as adults and still loving the sport, being a sport photographer for a NASCAR race is thrilling for us. To be so close to the action is exhilarating.
We traveled to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway to view and capture all the sports events for the day.
NASCAR Inspection Pictures
Here are just a few photos from the Brickyard Inspection area.
NASCAR Driver Introduction Photos from the Brickyard
We loved using the equipment that we did for photographing this race. As you can see from these images, it brought us very close to each of these drivers.
NASCAR Flagmen Photos
NASCAR flagmen are always hard at work from start to finish. Photographing them is always exciting capturing their constant duties.
Pit Road at the Brickyard Photos
Some of the most exciting shots during a race can be all the pit road action. All the action that happens during a single photo makes sports photography so much fun. Check out a few of our favorite pit stop photos from the Brickyard.

Jennifer and Landon had the perfect wedding day. There were threats of storms, but the weather held off for a beautiful outdoor wedding ceremony. Their amazing wedding made it easy for us to capture beautiful wedding photos. They found this beautiful venue that was the perfect setting for a small crowd.
