Jack is 2! | Pittsburgh Child Photographer

I’m so excited to share the first images from my new studio in Point Breeze!  This is Jack, who spent his first year doing the Baby Plan with me so we are good buddies already!

We tried a little natural light shooting in the sitting room, where Jack showed off his 412 style in a tee from Commonwealth Press.

October 2016 Mini Sessions at Powder Blue Photography | Pittsburgh Family Photographer

Fall is the best time of the year for a Pittsburgh family photographer!  I reconnect with some of my favorite people and get so much gorgeous family portrait work done in such a small period of time! We lucked out (for the 4th year in a row) with amazing weather–60-70 (!!) degrees and sunny both days.  The following sessions are from my South Hills date:

Images from my fall mini sessions at Frick Park coming later this week!

I offer the fall family minis in Pittsburgh every year, but I only do other mini sessions and events on a random basis.  To be the first to hear about these types of events, sign up for my email list!  I have some special ideas in mind for 2017–mostly involving cool and fun photography techniques since I do not do prop-themed shoots.  (Have you seen the portraits I did for Point Breeze Light Up Night?)  I have some other exciting business developments coming in early spring, so keep checking that email for news from me!

I love this kiddo!  He makes 18 month portraits look easy!  I love a simple, clean portrait and this is exactly what I mean by that–great expressions, great lighting, neutral colors, and little else.

Andrew’s mama owns Pittsburgh Premier Nannies based in the Pittsburgh South Hills area.  She has brought Andrew to me a couple times now, and one of my favorite portfolio images is from his sitting session last year.

I have been doing a lot of these mini studio portraits lately–they are kind of the perfect thing to get a portrait of the little ones while it’s so freezing outside!  Don’t delay calling if you plan to see me in the spring though, I am completely booked for family portraits in May (can take a couple more newborns though!) and have limited availability for April and June.

The locket belonged to her mama as a child so is very special!!
