Norfolk Senior Portraits

Meet Josh. He was in need of some awesome senior pictures and we were in need of an awesome model. Josh agreed to come to us and be photographed so that we could use his images in a marketing campaign for our contract schools. We offer discounted, short Senior Express casual sessions to our schools where we hold the school photography contract. These are normally 20 minutes sessions where we can still offer an awesome photo session.
Senior Express Photo Sessions
In our Senior Express photo sessions, we offer a 20 or 30 minute photoshoot. This is perfect for most seniors, especially if they have never had professional portraits taken. These sessions are offered at our contract schools or at our studio. If seniors choose a photo session at the school, it will be all indoor studio photos. If they choose to be photographed at our studio, we offer indoor and outdoor senior pictures.
Our studio is located in gorgeous East Beach. This is a perfect location for our Norfolk senior portraits. We have a great studio to create a variety of images to choose from. We also have parks on every block. We are also located just 2 short blocks from the beach.
Casual Senior Portraits
If you are an uprising senior and not sure what to expect from your senior photo session, you can check out more of our portfolio. We love creating unique, once in a lifetime pictures. We also love to incorporate your hobbies, interests and your personality to your senior pictures.
If you are looking for something very unique in your senior portraits, you may want to choose a Trash the Dress session. This is great option especially if you love the beach and you love wearing a prom dress. We have also have our senior guys wear a tuxedo out in the water to create some fun photos. You can view more about the Trash the Dress sessions here.
Formal Yearbook Photos
We can also take care of your formal yearbook portrait at your senior portrait session. A great formal yearbook photo is as important as your casual senior pictures. We make sure that you look sharp and flawless. This image is important because it is what will be a historical photo for you. One that will mark a time in life that was your senior year! One that will be highlighted in your school yearbook, because your are a senior! You don’t want to look back on your formal yearbook photo and say, “what was I thinking?”. You want to reflect back on your photo and say, “I looked good!”.
Here at Hayne Photographers we provide the tuxedo or for the girls the drape that you school yearbook will require. We will also submit your senior formal yearbook portrait to your school’s yearbook advisor.

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!

Urban Ballerina Photography Session
We love doing unique photography. That’s why we decided to do an urban ballerina photography session.
Contact us today for more information on artistic photography.
We recently did a senior sessions with the girls in these images. Dance is a very important aspect of their life. We thought it would be fun to do an artistic shoot with them. We chose three different locations that each had their own unique look. A big part of getting great images is finding the perfect setting. Research the locations you want to use before each session. Our studio is very close to an urban downtown area. We are always finding new and creative spots there for our sessions.
Each girl brought an outfit that complimented the textures of each setting. We love it when we can pair beautiful outfits with the location. Their outfits also added in each girls’ unique personal flair. For one portrait our dancer wore a beautiful white ballet outfit. It stood out against the dark industrial background (image above).
For this portrait our dancer wore a bright red gown that complimented the faded brick wall.
For this portrait we wanted to add in a stunning background. The church was a perfect paring for the dancers outfit. It was exactly what we wanted for our artistic shoot.
In this portrait our ballerina wore a tutu that gave a lighthearted feel to the overall image.
Some tips for getting great pictures like these is to use good lighting. We used off camera flash and a deflector to bounce lighting onto the dancers. It really helped to make the portraits pop. Since we were working with dancers it was important to capture their beautiful posture. A great way to do that is with proper posing. You can read our guide here to learn more.

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.
We are very big in the school photography scene and were able to take her year book portrait during her session. If you would like to read more about our work in the school photography industry click here.

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.
To book your senior session, contact us today.
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.
