Here is a sweet family photography session that I shot in basically full sun, mid-morning at Schenley Park in Pittsburgh.  I thought they turned out beautifully, and I will maybe not shy away from mid-morning sun as much as I used to!  SO sunny & lovely!

This is a beautiful age for a portrait, sitting up (almost!!) and so happy!  Baby Ben was such a doll!

Rat Terrier Gracie is getting along in her years, but was very agreeable for her close-up!  She wore her sassy summer outfit for portraits!

Newborn baby girl Anna Rose is getting used to cuddles from her dog siblings, Dinger & Dale.  I always get some baby & dog pics during a lifestyle newborn session, but they don’t all cuddle up right next to baby with such little prompting!  What sweethearts!

I like how this photo of the family hands calls attention to their newborn baby’s tiny size–she will not be this little for very long!

I love a baby girl on a pink blanket!  So timeless and sweet.

I have been watching this tiny beauty grow since our newborn session last year. She has grown the most gorgeous head of hair (who could have guessed from her newborn hair?? kidding!!) and delightful personality!  She just started walking a couple weeks before our session so I was able to capture that “baby deer” wobbliness and she couldn’t run away from me too quickly yet!

This is my all-time favorite location for portraits in pittsburgh because is is SO versatile and there are gorgeous spots at every time of day, year round.  That said, my favorite time is the very end of the say when the light is soft and pretty!

Baby Louis is the second born to his big brother Maxigan the cat.  The boys played very nicely together and seem to be adjusting to sibling-hood well.

This little sweetie came early so we shot his session when he was already a few weeks old.  These sessions are very special because even though he was before his due date when we shot this session, you could see he had already adjusted to the world by giving beautiful eye contact, and he was very aware of his surroundings any looking right at mom & dad.

These blankets were made by proud grandmas, and the groundhog is a memento from the wedding–apparently there were many battles won and lost over these groundhogs!  Caroline is a baby planner, so we will get a shot of her with the groundhog as she grows!  :)lifestyle newborn session in home colorful blankets pittsburghlifestyle newborn session in home colorful blankets pittsburgh
