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! 

I can remember babysitting Dan and Beth where they were practically babies and now they have little families of their own (SO ADORABLE)! Needless to say I’ve known the Conti family for years and they are all so kind and welcoming. I left feeling as if I was part of their family…they were so amazing […]

“Think of your family today and every day thereafter, don’t let the busy world of today keep you from showing how much you love and appreciate your family.”

One of my very favorite things about being a family photographer is that I often get to witness and capture couples growing into parents. This is even more special, however, when I’ve known the couple beyond that journey.  I’ve worked with both Andilynne and Aaron at Brookville Area School District and they have even had […]

I mean, seriously….. I have the most gorgeous clients in the world!!!!  Just look at these people!!! The moment I met Chelsea, Matt, and baby Maci  – I immediately picked up on two things: they are the sweetest people ever and they are a such a fun family!!!!  I absolutely loved hanging out with them and […]

I LOVE lifestyle sessions so much!  I get to witness new parents hold their brand new perfect baby surrounded by all of the tiny little perfect things that they spent months hand picking just for their baby. A lot of moms at one point or another spend time sitting in the finished nursery, hand on […]

Family sessions are so much fun, especially when we are able to mix in a variety of posed group photos as well as capture a family’s natural emotions of love and laughter!  The Ishman family had the perfect mix of both!  Loved working with them all so much!  Enjoy!

Incredible family on the perfect winter day…it just doesn’t get any more beautiful then this!  Enjoy!

I’m beyond excited for this growing family of four!  It seems like yesterday we were capturing Nolan’s newborn session and now he has the most adorable little sister, Nora!  I just love lifestyle sessions because it documents daily life in the places you eat, live, and breath on a daily basis.  Enjoy this adorable home […]

Engagement…marriage…pregnancy…and now newborn!  Isn’t it crazy and miraculous to go from a couple of two to a family of three within a matter of minutes and a new beautiful chapter begins. New life will always be my favorite story!  Congratulations to the sweet Heschke family and their new little Brookville Raider!

Sometimes while editing I often catch myself smiling so much at the sweet expressions captured between family.  This is one of those amazing sessions! Love working with Rhonda, Adam and Max!! Enjoy these lovelies!
