Pittsburgh Photographer: Mallory, Class of 2014

Friday, August 9th, 2013

Mallory and her mom drove some distance to my studio in Butler for her senior portrait session, only to have an unexpected thunderstorm put a damper on things. After spending an hour or so shooting in the studio, we were fortunate to see the sunshine once again and moved the shoot outdoors. I always encourage my seniors to do a combination of urban and natural settings for their portraits. I love shooting in fields, but Pennsylvania tends to be really, really green in the spring and the summer. Urban settings offer such a great variety in color and texture, which really balances all of of that green.


This is the outfit she showed up in. She was NOT planning on using it for her shoot, but I thought the shorts were super cute !

Pittsburgh Photographer: Kelsey, Model Session

Wednesday, July 31st, 2013

Kelsey was one of my senior portrait clients 4 years ago. I first met her several years ago during a local theater production of Annie (she was Annie!). Her mom is also my son’s dentist so I see her parents at least twice per year. They are a wonderful family and some of the nicest people I know. A few weeks ago, I asked Kelsey if she would like to come model some dresses for me before she heads of to  law school. I haven’t even had a chance to look at most of the images yet, but here are a few that jumped out at me.


At the studio with my garage sale vanity I found this past spring. I am always on the look out for vintage or interesting pieces I can use for portrait sessions.

Pittsburgh Photographer: Senior Portrait Slideshow

My shoot with Alyssa!

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 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.
