    At Hayne Photographers, we are your go to source for Virginia Dance School Photography. We pride ourselves on our ability to capture the dancers in poses that display their technique. If you or a dance center are looking for amazing pictures of your dancer(s), contact us today!

    Why Having Professional Pictures Matter

    Are you tired of pictures that don’t capture a dancer’s talent? Having a professional will ensure that the dancer and/or dance group are photographed in a flattering manner. With Hayne Photographers, you can expect a highly experienced and professional team to capture beautiful images of your dancer. Too many dance photographers shoot in a harsh light and distracting background. A big key to dance photography is having great quality lights and a beautiful backdrop that highlights any one being photographed on it. We have a wide range of backgrounds to choose from and provide top of the line professional lighting. If your dance studio has inspiration for a background theme, we are more than happy to work with you to get the perfect setting! We know that it is important for a dancer to have their technique and form shown, and strive to display their talent.

    Our Work

    Are you interested in seeing our work with Virginia dance school photography? Below is a gallery of various dance schools we service. With a diverse variety of ages, backgrounds, and talents, we are very proud to display our work!


    We also offer videography services for dance performances and recitals. Our professionally trained videographers will be there on performance day and will record in HD video, high quality sound, and multiple cameras set up to ensure that the performers are captured from different angles. Below is just a sample of the many performances we’ve taken.

    Outdoor Photography Fun

    For the first portion of Tori’s photo session we wanted to do pictures outside in late afternoon. It is the best time for the great lighting and we were able to get more photographic images. The area we chose for her outdoor photos had some amazing cobblestone roads. We really wanted to incorporate them into her images. Since the roads provided a nice background we decided to use her car and an antique chair we had on hand as props. When doing professional photography you have to think on your toes when it comes to outdoor settings.

    There was also some great brickwork on the outside of the buildings that we thought would go wonderfully with our pictures. When you use texture in the background it adds interest to your photo shoot. Tori decided that she wanted to add in her own personal touch by blowing confetti for one shot. We always love it when clients add their own flair to their photo session!

    Gorgeous Indoor Studio Portraits

    After the outdoor portion of the session we decided to do some indoor head shots. Since the outdoor segment was fun we decided to do a more professional indoor head shot session to contrast it. Tori wanted serious but not too serious for her studio shots. We were able to do that by adding in an age appropriate background along with soft lighting. Half the battle of doing professional photographic pictures is making sure the lighting and background compliment whoever you’re shooting.

    Senior Portrait at Sunset

    Fun Senior Pictures

    High school seniors always want to be unique. They want to stand out in the crowd. They don’t want to look or be like anyone else.

    When it come to senior pictures, their feeling is the same. They are looking for unique senior pictures that will make them stand out in a crowd. They are looking for that senior photo that makes everyone say “WOW”.

    How about if you could have fun, real fun, on our senior portrait session? What if you could have a photography session that ended doing something truly unique? How about if you ended your photo  shoot with senior portraits at the beach? Not only senior portraits at the beach, but you partnered that with a Trash the Prom Dress session?

    Senior Portrait at the Beach at Sunset

    You would not only have gorgeous senior pictures, your senior photos would stand out in the crowd! Who else has the opportunity to do something fun and different? When you get into the ocean in a gorgeous prom dress, have a gorgeous sunset and the senior photographer uses state of the art photographic lighting, you may end up with senior pictures that look like this!

    Senior Portrait – Trash the Prom Dress

    With the right senior portrait photographer, the right setting, the right client and the right photographic equipment, we are able to create unique, one of a kind, senior pictures.

    Trash the Prom Dress Photography

    When we take senior portraits at the beach we always schedule close to sunset. That way we are ensured the best light of the day. We are looking for soft golden light in our photos. This is generally captured 30-45 minutes prior to sunset during the summer months.

    As the sun is setting we love to incorporate off camera lighting. This creates a moodiness in your photos that can only be created by adding lighting. Here is an example of off camera lighting at sunset.

    Sunset Senior Portrait

    When we use off camera lighting it allows to to photograph directly into the sun. When we use off camera lighting it allows us to expose both the sky and our subject properly.

    When you understand this photographic lighting technique you can create very unique photos.

    If you are interested in learning more about off camera lighting, you can read more here.

    Beautiful Senior Portraits

    We love the “golden hour” in photography. When we take senior portraits at the beach, the scheduling is critical. For our clients that want to end their senior portrait session at the beach we schedule the arrival 45 minutes before sunset. When you are photographing at the beach you have no protection from the glaring sun unless you have some cloud cover. If you photograph your clients in the direct sun, the sun will often create ugly shadows. Those ugly shadows are not attractive on your gorgeous clients.

    We make sure that we are photographing in the right conditions, with the right photography equipment, at the right time. When you combine those elements you will produce beautiful senior portraits.

    If you are a photographer and need help with posing tips for your senior portraits, we can help!

    If we have a senior photography client that wants to add a Trash the Prom Dress session, we recommend that they visit the thrift store to purchase a dress. You can often find and inexpensive dress that has already been used for this type of photo session. The dress doesn’t have to fit perfectly, in fact, we have been known to add clamps to a dress to make it work. We have honestly never had anyone that has completely trashed their prom dress to the point of ruin. Most of our clients just wash, dry and repeat wear the dress from their photo shoot!
