Sometimes you just get lucky and land a gorgeous Fallingwater Wedding. Meet Lindsey and Seth. This is a story about boy grows up with girl. Boy and girl go separate ways. Boy and girl reunite after troubled relationships, then boy marries girl and they live happily ever after.
Bride and Groom Embrace with Fallingwater in the Background
Weddings are sometimes a challenge when you are traveling to photograph in a place that you have never seen before. There are so many factors that can affect your photographic outcome. Where is the sun during certain hours of the day? When is sunset in the area that you are photographing? Where will we find the “perfect” photographic backdrops and angles on a property we have never experienced? What will the couple be like if you have never met them before?
All the questions come to mind, however with Seth and Lindsay, there were no hesitations or worries. They were a stunning bride and groom. They chose an incredible location. They are in love. That photographically knocks it out of the park!
When you have a wedding at Fallingwater, they have a barn and farmhouse available for getting ready, the wedding ceremony and the reception. The property was gorgeous and surrounded by lovely gardens.
Bride on Porch of the Fallingwater Farmhouse
There were endless opportunities for gorgeous wedding photographs.
I love these shots of their recessional from there quaint wedding ceremony. The ceremony was attended by family and loved ones and officiated by the groom’s brother. How much more love do you need?
Fallingwater Wedding Portraits
One of the perks and one of the obvious reasons to have a Falling Water wedding is Falling Water. What a stunning property. Frank Lloyd Wright was an incredible architect. He was so far ahead of his time in design. Falling Water has now been entrusted to the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy, the watch and care of the property is second to none. They have kept the property in pristine condition to be enjoyed by all.
The fact that we get to photograph a stunning bride and groom, at a stunning property, put our day over the top.

We wanted to make sure that at Hayne Photographers Studio we were able to achieve that same experience.
We even flow our art work and brand into our bathroom.
Hayne Photographers Studio Space Layout and Design Creation Credit
We always recommend that you work and hire a professional whether it’s for photography or design. We worked very closely with Sherry Bouthillet Design.

Beautiful Newborn Portraits

Newborn Portraits that Tell a Story
For us, our photography needs to tell a story. Every image, every moment has a story. These beautiful newborn portraits were no different. Sometimes the story can not be openly shared, but know there is a story. This story started with a beautiful couple.
Meet a gorgeous military mom and her precious newborn baby.
Then there is another important part to this story. Meet this handsome hero…Maddie’s daddy.
Now meet the one and only precious newborn, Maddie.
Why Incorporate Personal Props in Your Newborn Photography Session
When we are creating memorable, personal and beautiful newborn portraits, incorporating personal props is key. When you incorporate things that are personal it helps tell a story. For this newborn session there were many items that helped complete their story.
First there were gifts. This wreath was handmade by a loved one and given as a newborn gift. This wreath hangs in the nursery and spreads love every time it is viewed.
This newborn portrait is in her daddy’s helmet. This helmet holds many memories and is a reminder of all the blessings of life. Stories of where this helmet has been and where it will go in the future. When daddy puts on this helmet, it will always be a reminder of the blessing of his precious newborn that once was small enough to fit bundled up inside.
These boots, daddy’s cover and flag have traveled many miles. They will always be a memory of all the places they have walked to protect America.
The American flag is a great representation of the love of our country and this family’s commitment and sacrifice to defend her.
Here are a few more priceless newborn portraits from Maddie’s session.

Beautiful Senior Portraits
Meet Kenzi. She is a talented uprising senior.
Capturing Beautiful Senior Portraits
When we schedule a senior portrait photo session, we help our clients prepare. Senior portraits are an important milestone in a child’s life. We want to make sure that they have the best experience and the most beautiful senior portraits possible. We often discuss locations, clothing and props that help define who the senior is. When we photographed Kenzi, we already knew about her love for reading, travel, photography and more. We also knew that she wanted to include the beach as part of her photo session.
Here are some senior pictures that outline Kenzi’s love for reading. Any guess on her favorite book of all time?
This senior portrait shows her love for reading as well as her love of travel.
Kenzi is very creative and wanted a fun senior portrait. She wanted a portrait that would express that her senior year is here and there are going to be a lot of big decisions that have to be made. She wanted to highlight that time is literally running out on her childhood days.
Beautiful Senior Portraits with the Ringlight
When you are creating beautiful senior portraits, the ringlight is an excellent light source to choose. The ringlight is exactly what it sounds like, a ring of light. It is a beautiful, near-shadowless light, that creates stunning senior portraits. When you compliment the fan with a ringlight, you can create some dramatic portraits. If you look closely you will see the ringlight in Kenzi’s eyes.
Beach Senior Portraits
A favorite location a senior often chooses for photo session is the beach. Kenzi knew that she had to include the beach, but she also wanted to incorporate a family hammock that has been traveling with her family for years. She expressed wanting to hang the hammock under a pier. We had the perfect location! Sunset was the perfect time for that portion of her photo shoot. We often will use all the elements that we find in a location. For this beach stop, we starting photographing her on the walkway to the beach.
Outdoor Senior Portrait
Our next photo stop was near the pier.
Our next photo stop was under the pier.
Beautiful Senior Portraits at Sunset
Our last stop on our senior photo shoot would be in the ocean at sunset. We had a beautiful girl, a beautiful sunset and you add some beautiful off camera lighting and you can create a beautiful sunset portrait.

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.

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!

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.

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.
