To Everything There is a Season

Saturday, March 8th, 2014

As of March 2014 I am not longer accepting any new clients. At some point, I will write a much longer post about me, my business, and my plans for the future. For now, I am just letting everyone know that I will not be taking on any new clients. Current clients may still contact me via phone or email to finish selecting their senior portraits.  Online proof  galleries will remain online until the end of the school year. Please don’t worry if this post sounds ominous. There is nothing tragic going on. I am just making some much needed changes. Love,  Bonnie

This little boy happens to be my youngest son. He is a great source of joy to me. Not a day goes by that he doesn’t make me smile.

Newborn Portrait Photographer in Pittsburgh

Saturday, October 19th, 2013

From my blog posts, it may appear that senior portraits are all I photograph. But my roots are actually in Child and Family Portraits. Photographing newborns will always be a great love of mine, although I will admit they are a bit more challenging than a 17 year old. This week, I had a 1 week old at the studio for some pictures. 7 pounds of sweetness and love.

Senior Portrait Photographer in Pittsburgh, September Update.

Monday, September 9th, 2013

Just a quick update with some recent senior portrait shoots. Senior season is in HIGH GEAR and I am out shooting sessions almost every day. September is full, but I do have some openings left in October.

 

First up Shelby. I photographed Shelby’s sister Kady 2 years ago when Shelby was a little tenth grader following us around. So great to get to know Shelby and see what a beautiful young lady she has become. LOVE, love, love the sun here. I will call 2013 the year I finally mastered sun flare.

Yes, I do photograph boys! Will the the younger sibling of previous senior portrait seniors Luke and Lainy. He wanted something “different” so we did a twilight shoot in Pittsburgh.

Angela! Wow her eyes were amazing and this girl knew how to pose. Loved her hair, her clothing. Loved everything about her shoot!

Hannah wanted studio, urban, and natural settings. I love sessions with tons of variety. She texted me pictures of her clothing selections ahead of time, and I knew the vintage suitcases would work great with her chevron dress. I am planning on purchasing this image as a HUGE canvas and hanging it in the studio.

Brittany is majorly talented. We photographed her with two different instruments, and her in ballet clothes. Love these dreamy, amazing, Disney-esque shots.

So I don’t really ride (well a little), but I am a huge horse lover. I have dying to photograph a senior with a horse. This image is pure serendipity for me. Beautiful girl. Perfect dress. Gorgeous horse. And amazing light. It makes my heart happy.

Another boy! Had to get up early for this one but I loved working with Ryan and visiting with his mom who I met last year when I photographed her older son, Cole.

Ok, I will sneak in a couple of non-seniors. Kelsey was one of my seniors 4 years ago and we got together over the summer to photograph her before law school. You can plan on seeing this one enlarged and in my senior as well.

And finally, Megan, my beautiful niece came to visit me for the entire month of July before she moved to Florida.  Of course, I couldn’t pass up an opportunity to have her model for me.

Senior Portraits in Pittsburgh: Hadly, 2014

Saturday, July 27th, 2013

A few weeks ago a I shot a photo session with Hadly in Pittsburgh. Ever since my senior portrait session with Paige last year, I have been getting a lot of requests for “the bridge shot”. Please note, I only photograph people on the bridge when it is CLOSED. A lot of people have asked me how I managed to stop the traffic. Please use good sense when taking pictures!

 

Hadly was a lovely person, inside and out, and she had the most amazing blue eyes. It rained the entire drive to the session and I was worried we were going to have to reschedule. But the skies cleared, and while we didn’t have any sun, I was actually in love with the overcast day. As much as I love the backlighting and fun shadow play you can get on sunny days, colors tend to be more deep and vivid on overcast days.
