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.

I call this corner my light pocket.

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 have been blessed to meet so many great seniors this year. Emily, a budding photographer, was my final senior of the year. Emily loves music and photography and plans to pursue a career as a music photographer after she finishes her collage education. Good luck, Emily!

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. 

A Few of My Favorite People

Tuesday, November 29th, 2011

My business is slowly grinding to a halt for the holidays, as I focus on spending time on my family. I did, however, have two child shoots this past weekend that I wanted to share. I seriously think these kids are the cutest! First “M” who I have been photographing since she was 3 months old!

 

Here’s a picture I pulled off of my old blog from several years ago.

 

 

And now. . .the same beautiful face but looking so grown up!

Next up, a pair of sweet, fun brothers!

Kally, Senior Portraits, Part II

Wednesday, September 14th, 2011

You might remember the session I posted a few months ago of Kally. If not, check it out here. Kally is a competitive swimmer and we wanted a few shots of her doing her thing! But we weren’t able to fit it all into one session, so I went back a few weeks later for some images of her in the water. We had soooo much fun!

Hannah: Senior Portraits, Class of 2010

Tuesday, August 4th, 2009

I seriously have the nicest clients. I think this a lot to myself, but I rarely ever say it to anyone else. But it’s true! I really do. Hannah was no exception. She brought TWO parents with her, which I admit made me a bit worried, but they were awesome to have around. Hannah is not only very pretty and very smart, but she has a big heart as well. She does volunteer work at Children’s Hospital and hopes to persue a career helping kids as well.

Natalie: Senior Session, Class of 2010

Thursday, July 23rd, 2009

Natalie and I were beginning to think her session would never happen. She was originally scheduled for June, but we got rained out. So we rescheduled for July 21. Rained out again.  We rescheduled for this morning and of course I woke up in the middle of the night to the sound of what else but a torrential downpour! I was certain the session would not take place today, but when I checked the radar at 6am I was surprised to see a small window of opportunity. We decided to give it a try and I would like to say the weather cooperated, but we did in fact get rained on more than once.  However, Natalie’s beautiful smile and amazing blue eyes brought a bit of sunshine to the session. Natalie, I am so glad I finally got to meet you in person. Enjoy your sneak peek!
