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.

Pittsburgh Child and Family Portraits

Monday, October 14th, 2013

Fall color means family and kids in the portrait business. I love these cool, colorful autumn days but I love seeing the familiar faces of my family clients even more!

 

Serious cuteness! Their mom wanted their pictures to have a vintage feel. Love the hat and the vest!

So I just so happens that the grandfather of these sweet kids was a vintage car collector. I am told the Ford we used is very, very rare.

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.

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.

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!
