Hello, and welcome to the SH Blog! I'm Sara Haines, and I am a lifestyle, wedding, and portrait photographer based in Brookville, Pennsylvania. I hope you grab some coffee and enjoy viewing my latest work and getting a little peek into my life!

Wintery New York Engagement Session There’s always a little bit of a struggle doing an engagement in the dead of winter. There’s a lack of color because we’re missing the leaves and the grass and the greenery! However, it’s not impossible to have a great shoot in the middle of February and Zach and Liz’s […]
