Pittsburgh Photographer: Julia in Studio

Monday, June 10th, 2013

Julia is one of my wonderful seniors from a few years ago. She came to visit me as the new studio space and we shot a few images to demonstrate some of the features of studio. Many of the seniors I work with are hesitant to have part of their shoot in the studio. They worry that studio shoots= old school or boring. But take time to look through any top fashion magazine and you will see many, many images shot in studios. I am fortunate that my studio has both a large natural light shooting area with interesting architecture, as well as an area I can use for studio lighting. Studio can be modern, fun, and fresh! I encourage all of my seniors to shoot at least part of their session at the studio. And if you happen to need a traditional picture for the yearbook or to give to your grandparents, we can accomplish that as well.

My sweet husband found this vintage couch and had it repaired for me.

The studio ceilings are very high and perfect for dance portraits.

Julia is so graceful. I love this image of her in the window.

Pittsburgh Photographer: First Shoot in the New Studio

Monday, May 27th, 2013

Well, I had my first photo shoot in the new studio. Emily, who has worked with me before, came over and let me play around with the light. She is sooo pretty and a really lovely person.

 

We started out in the natural light area of the studio.

Her eyes look amazing.

Next we moved onto some studio lighting. The studio is 2700 square feet so there is a lot of room! I set up a studio lighting area on “The Dark Side” , AKA the opposite end of the room from the windows. If there is one thing I want to convey to my clients this year it is that studio lighting does not have to equal old school and boring!

Finally we headed outside for some sunshine. The studio is surrounded by plenty of great urban shooting areas. Emily rocked a retro look here which I absolutely love!

The studio is located on the 3rd floor of the Heritage Building (middle row of windows) above Benjamin Beetle clothing.

I’ve been trying to have a shoot with Emily for  months, but the weather and various scheduling challenges prevented it. It was so worth the wait! Her pictures turned out amazing.

At this point we were getting rained on, so we called it a night and met again the following evening for some sunshine!

I had such a tough time narrowing down images for the blog. If you want to see more of Emily’s session, check out my business Facebook page.
