Pittsburgh Senior Portrait Photography: Introducing the Class of 2014. . .

Thursday, May 16th, 2013

Yay! I am so excited to start photographing senior portraits for the class of 2014. First up. . .Slippery Rock High School student Heather who braved the unusually cold May weather for her photo session. I am in love with her smile, her beautiful long hair, and the wonderful clothing choices she made. The studio is still under construction, but we had some fun doing part of the shoot in one of the nearby alleys.

 

Coral and turquoise is such a great combo. Notice how the wind cooperated for this shot? It doesn’t always work out that way, but I sure love it when it does.

Sunflare like this makes me so happy!

I told Heather: I want you to pose in this pocket of light because it is magical. Later, one of her friends said she looked like a forest fairy.

Isn’t this wall awesome? It’s very close to the new studio. There are many great places for urban senior portraits right around the studio.

Everything about this works. At the beginning of each session, I go through all the clothing with my clients and then formulate a plan for where we are going to wear each outfit. As soon as I saw Heather’s shirt, I knew this location would be perfect.

If you are thinking about senior portraits, I highly recommend you schedule them before the peak heat of summer. July can be very humid. June is filling up fast.

New Grad Cards for Girls!

Friday, April 5th, 2013

After yesterday’s post about new graduation cards just for the guys, I decided to add a few more girl designs as well. Cards can be used as an announcement or invitation or both! There is plenty of room for more text or pictures on the back of the card. Most of my clients used the front of the card to display their favorite picture and the back to give detailed information about their graduation party and future plans. Last year, one client had her mom snap a picture of her in front of the college she would be attending, and we included that on the back of the card. Cards are fully customizable! Current Clients: Designs can be found by logging into your online proof gallery and clicking on the “design boutique” button at the bottom of the price list.

Pittsburgh Senior Portraits, HUGE showcase of recent seniors

Tuesday, October 9th, 2012

I cannot believe how long it has been since I have blogged. I have a ton of beautiful senior portraits to share. I’m going to highlight some of them in this post and hopefully, share more from their senior portrait sessions later.

 

First up, Anna. I had been looking for a vintage bike for a while and a few days before Anna’s shoot, my husband surprised me by bringing one home. As soon as I saw Anna’s dress, I knew it was meant to be!

Another beauty, Caroline.  I love the purple dress with her delicate coloring. So pretty!

Yes, I photograph boys too! Here is Ed. Love the colors in this shot.

Lauren is planning a career in fashion merchandising. She had a great sense of style and knew she wanted to use some funky, urban locations for her shoot.  I love the colors here, as well.

Tracy, is a photographer. She studied in NYC over the summer and already has her own website. I was honored she asked me to shoot her senior portraits. Near the end of the shoot I had some fun playing with light.

Ok, so Sarah isn’t a high school senior. She’s actually in her freshman year of college and needed some images for her modeling portfolio.  It rained the all day the day of her shoot, but we had to do it anyway as she was on a very tight deadline. We ended up having an amazing shoot and she is one of the sweetest girls I have ever worked with. I wish her the best of luck with her modeling career!

Here’s Emily (on the left) with her older sister Hannah (right) who was one of my seniors from a few years ago. I love, love, LOVE photographing sisters. There is just something so special about that bond.

We had so much fun on Taylor’s shoot! This girl just doesn’t have a bad angle. She wasn’t entirely sold on the idea of using her violin, but her mom and I convinced her to give it a try and I love the results.

Finally, Alyssa. What a sweetheart. Her mom and I actually graduated from high school together and had not seen each other since. Alyssa’s eyes were mezmerizing.

I have a bunch more seniors to share, but I need to get them all edited first. Be sure to check out my facebook page for the most current session updates. If you have not yet scheduled your senior portraits, there is still time for me to squeeze in a few more sessions before winter.
