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 […]

I’m so thrilled to be sharing this post with you today!  It’s Owen’s FIRST Birthday and he is the cutest!  Every expression on this little guy is so different and adorable and I could tell he was full of charm and personality right from the start.  Owen keeps his parents very busy and I’m pretty […]

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 portraits are wonderful. They are great for Christmas cards, sending to grandma, whatever! But what I really treasure are the images that tell a story–capturing kids’ real personalities, real smiles, real life. Those pictures of the kids in the bath, playing with the dog in the backyard, riding a scooter, making cookies, or jumping on […]

To say these two have a few things in common would be an understatement.  They are both police officers, they both are very high energy people, they share the sweetest dog in the world AND they have both pulled me over for running the same stop sign (that darn sign gets me every time!)  Honestly, […]
