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!

Trendy Senior Session
At Hayne Photographers, being up to date with what is in style is a big part of who we are. That’s why we took Adrian on a trendy senior session.

Cars Can Add To The “Cool” Factor
We always encourage our senior’s to add their own special flair to their images. For this shoot, Adrian wanted to showcase his car. With different makes and models, it can make any session into a trend setter. Cars are a great way to incorporate professional lighting so that the photography stands out. The lighting technique we use is called off camera flash. The best time for capturing the lighting inside and outside the car is at sunset. At that time of the day you can be more creative with how you bounce the light off the vehicle and senior to create a unique photograph. Different locations can also add more character to the images. We chose the beach for Adrian’s car, as it offered different textures to the background that offset his vehicle.
If you need help with your photographic lighting, we can help.
Make Your Style Stand Out
In addition to his car, Adrian wanted to show off his unique style in clothing. Showing off his urban fashion in a historic area made his pictures more photographically appealing. You can even make an indoor head shot stand out by adding in accessories that can draw the eye. For his head shots, Adrian incorporated a colorful bow tie to add to his amazing style.

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.

Virginia Beach Senior Photos
When is the best time of the year for Virginia Beach senior photos? The answer is simple. It is anytime! Meet Kasey. It’s winter, but we still did beach senior pictures!

Kasey wasn’t ready for her senior portrait session during the summer. Some seniors would think they would have to wait until it was warm again, but not Kasey. We photographed her during the winter months.
We began her senior portrait session in a wooded area. We love finding the perfect location for our clients. In talking with Kasey before her photo shoot, she wanted to do something in a wooded area. She also mentioned that she would love to have railroad tracks in some of her senior pictures. She also wanted to incorporate her grandmother’s vintage chair.
Senior Pictures by the Railroad Tracks
When our clients have a desired location that they would like to be photographed, we try to make that happen. When the request comes for railroad tracks, photographing them can be a challenge. The challenge comes with the law. We are not allowed to photograph anyone on live tracks. The reason is safety.
We always get out and scout to find new locations for our photo sessions. We were able to find these super cool dead tracks to use in Kasey’s photoshoot. No worries railroad police, no trains have been on these tracks for years!

After photographing on the railroad tracks, we took advantage of the wooded area.

Senior Pictures at the Beach
When you live in a beach community, beach pictures are a must. This doesn’t just happen during the summer months, it’s all year round. For Kasey’s Virginia Beach senior pictures, we headed to the beach around sunset. Sometimes our winter skies are not very colorful at sunset. Though we didn’t have a gorgeous summer sunset, the beach still was the perfect setting.
Sometimes our seniors was to do bff pictures. We always encourage it. What better way to take cool beach senior pictures with your bff chasing seagulls?
This senior portrait is a replica of a portrait we did of Kasey’s older sister 6 years ago.

Indoor Portrait Photography
When you find a portrait photographer that has an indoor studio, you can kick your portraits up a notch. Our photography studio is located in downtown Norfolk. To have an indoor and outdoor photography studio is great. Some of our clients want indoor portraits. Some want outdoor portraits. Some want both.
Meet Dillon. Dillon just graduated from college and is ready to take on the world. He was needing to update his portrait portfolio. He is entering a new world. Today you not only need great head shots, but great portraits for your social media networking.
When you have a variety of styles of portraits to chose from, it is even better.
At our studio we have a variety of backgrounds and professional lighting. Sometimes, we incorporate our real American flag into our portrait photography. Who doesn’t love a bit of patriotism?
Here are a few fun indoor portraits from Dillon’s photoshoot.

Outdoor Portrait Photography
Our photography studio located in downtown Norfolk. We just step out of our office and into historic beauty. No matter the time of the year, our outdoor portrait photography always has an extra edge. That extra edge comes from gorgeous backgrounds and scenery of a historic area. When we were choosing our studio location, our outdoor area is as important as our indoor location.
Here are a few pictures of Dillon’s outdoor photography session.
