Cousins | Pittsburgh Child Portrait Photographer – Child Photo Session | Emily Hixon Photography

These three kiddos were great to photograph! They are cousins and but more importantly friends. The two older children are brother and sister. The younger little guy is their cousin. It was fun to watch these three in action. That morning, there was a lot of giggling and smiling. Take a look, the photos speak for themselves.

Love Multiplies | Pittsburgh Family and Child Portrait Photographer – Family Photo Session | Emily Hixon Photography

I have had such a great time seeing so many families that I haven’t seen for either months or even a year! It is really exciting to watch each family change and grow. I am truly honored when a family returns for more portraits.

Last year, I met this family for the first time to take some holiday photos. I am sure you have seen their family portrait around on my Facebook page or on here for my mini session advertisements. Their love for one another and their happiness definitely shows! One of the many reasons for their happiness is that they are expecting a baby this spring! I am thrilled for them. The next time I see them, they will be a family of four. Until then . . .

At the Top of the Hill | Pittsburgh Family and Child Portrait Photographer – Family Photo Session | Emily Hixon Photography

I met this family for the first time one year ago. It is amazing how much changes in such a short period of time! Since we last met, they have had a baby and moved to a new home! Needless to say, it has been an exciting and whirlwind year for them. We met for a mini session recently at a local park. I was very excited to meet their newest addition to the family! This adorable baby boy was unbelievably calm and alert (just wait until you see his full head of hair and big blue eyes)! His big brother absolutely adores him and their mom and dad could not be happier.

Enjoy! 🙂

Achoo | Pittsburgh Family and Child Portrait Photographer – Family Photo Session | Emily Hixon Photography

I just adore this family. They are equally as beautiful on the inside as they are on the outside! You may remember them from some of my previous posts. I was excited to see them again for a fun fall mini session on yet another comfortable fall day. It was hard to believe how much their little guy has grown over the past year! He already seems like such a little guy who is full of life and energy! Every time we wanted a smile from him, we faked a sneeze (achoo!). Can’t wait to see this family again in the spring!

Enjoy! 🙂

Golden Glow | Pittsburgh Family Portrait Photographer – Family Photo Session | Emily Hixon Photography

My job has to be one of the best in the entire world. I am truly blessed to be able to meet and photograph so many beautiful, kind and loving people! It never gets old. This family session was fun and full of energy. These two kiddos kept mom, dad and myself on the go! The golden setting sun and the colorful leaves on the trees were to die for on that cozy fall evening. One word for these portraits – love.

Enjoy! 🙂

Autumn in PA | Pittsburgh Baby Portrait Photographer – Baby Photo Session | Emily Hixon Photography

This last minute session was a lot of fun! The leaves were really starting to change and the weather was perfect. We went to North Park’s Boathouse for some pretty fall portraits of this baby girl and her mama. These two ladies live in Texas but came back to PA to visit with family and enjoy some of the foliage. After searching high and low for the perfect fall tree, we came across the most beautiful one with vibrant yellow leaves!

Enjoy these two pretty ladies! 🙂

Fall in the Country | Pittsburgh Family Portrait Photographer – Family Photo Session | Emily Hixon Photography

On a chilly but sunny fall morning not so long ago, I met with this absolutely gorgeous family. We had been planning this fall photo session for quite some time, so I knew it was going to be wonderful! For the session, we went to Mingo Creek County Park. The leaves were just perfectly turned and the sun was shining brightly through the trees. The kids seemed to have a blast playing in the leaves and exploring the park while their mom and dad helped to keep the smiles coming for the photos! Wait until you see their beautiful fall outfits!

Enjoy!

Good Day, Sunshine | Pittsburgh Family Portrait Photographer – Fall Family Photo Session | Emily Hixon Photography

Last weekend was filled with photo sessions! It was a perfect fall weekend for portraits. When I last saw this family, it was early in the spring. Doesn’t time just fly? Even though it was definitely a chilly morning, it was clear and sunny. I loved photographing these three. See why below:

Little Pumpkins | Pittsburgh Family Portrait Photographer – Fall Family Photo Session | Emily Hixon Photography

The last time I saw this family, I had a great time photographing these two sweet sisters at home. When their mom contacted me about a fall family session, I was thrilled! The morning of the session, I woke up to a surprise rain shower! Thankfully, the morning clouds cleared and the sun started shining by early in the afternoon. You will just love this beautiful family.

Enjoy!

Family Love | Morgantown Family Portrait Photographer – Family Photo Session | Emily Hixon Photography

It is difficult for me to believe that I have taken this family’s fall photos three times now. Where is time going? This family is so special to me because they were amongst my very first clients. Before I was even comfortable calling myself a photographer, they saw my potential. Take a look back on their photos from previous years: 2010 & 2011 (scroll halfway down the page – family #2).

It has been such a blessing getting to know them and watching their daughters grow and change. These four are the nicest and most fun people you could ever want to meet! This year, we headed to Coopers Rock State Forest in West Virginia for some beautiful portraits. It was my first time there so I enjoyed exploring with them. We searched high and low for some fall colors and found almost nothing! Just when we thought we could not find that fall foliage, we came across a gorgeous spot filled with color by a pond before sunset (check out the photos at the very end of this post!).

Enjoy! 🙂

Don’t you just love fall??
