You Are My Sunshine | Pittsburgh Baby and Family Portrait Photographer – One Year Old Baby Photo Session | Emily Hixon Photography

Only six months ago, I met this beautiful and loving family. During the last six months, I have come to know and enjoy spending time with them. Have you ever felt like a person or a group of people were brought into your life for a reason? I feel that way about this family. It has been a complete joy to watch and capture the baby and her big sister as they grew. Amazing what a difference just six months can make!

I am sad to say that as quickly as this family came into my life, they are already leaving! They are headed back to their home state soon. Even though I hate to see them leave, I am happy that they are making their way back home. This final session was on the baby girl’s first birthday! She looked completely adorable in her dress and tutu. Of course, what one year old session would be complete without a smash cake? Wait until you see how cute her smash cake looked!

Enjoy this lovely family and the birthday girl.


Sweet Summertime | Pittsburgh Senior Portrait Photographer – Senior Photo Session | Emily Hixon Photography

Summer is my favorite season. I just love the sunshine, warm weather and long evenings. It seems almost impossible that it is already mid-August! Students are heading back to school in a few short weeks. While many may be dreading going back to school, it is an exciting time for high school seniors! I remember very well the anticipation and excitement brought on by my senior year of high school. Twelve plus years of schooling all lead to that one final year that closes another chapter of life and begins a new one.

I cannot wait to see where life takes this special senior. She has a bright future awaiting her!

Enjoy 🙂

I had such a great session this morning

I had such a great session this morning with this gorgeous senior girl. More to come, but for now just one.

Pink or Blue? | Pittsburgh Portrait Photographer – Maternity Session | Emily Hixon Photography

On Monday evening, Scott and I had the opportunity to work with this lovely couple. They were married in October and are expecting their first baby together in September! As the location for their session, they chose Hartwood Acres. It has special meaning to them because their engagement and wedding photos were both taken there.

Because the baby’s gender is going to be a surprise, Mom and Dad wore pink and blue. They cannot wait to meet their little bundle in just a few weeks!

Enjoy! 🙂
