The Studio | Individual Portrait Session – Eighty Four, PA

Those of you who have been following me since the beginning of my journey in photography may recognize this familiar face. My boyfriend Scott is currently in the process of getting together a professional website for his audio work. Because it has been a while since I’ve photographed him, he was in need of some new head shots and other photos. He is always so patient and easy to work with. He listens to my crazy ideas and even makes his own suggestions.

I am really excited for the release of his new website. When the time comes, I will share more information with you about it.

For now, here is a preview of what you will see on his website.

Enjoy!

Winter Beauty | Individual Portrait Session – Peters Township, PA


Despite the never-ending cold and snowy weather, Scott and I ventured out for a photo session with one of his guitar students, Elise.  I’ve been wanting to have a photo session with Elise for a few months now. I was glad to finally get an opportunity to do so today.

Although the snow makes for a nice backdrop, I must say I am ready to see it go! After about 40 or so minutes into the session, we were all just about frozen. Elise never complained and happily went along with my crazy ideas. I hope to photograph her again when the weather is more desirable!

Enjoy another winter beauty 🙂

Snow Day | Individual Portrait Session – Canonsburg, PA

Today was a snow day for me and my sister, Natalie. I did not have class and she did not have work. Considering the roads were pretty terrible, we didn’t have much to do. I had promised Natalie around a month ago that we would do a winter photo session. She loves winter and snow! We finally had the perfect opportunity and setting to make it happen.

I cannot even tell you in words how cold we were! Natalie did not complain once. We had to stop after about 20 minutes because we were slowly becoming frozen. My hands were numb and could not properly work the camera any longer!

Considering this session was not really planned and certainly was not taking place in ideal weather conditions, we managed to sneak in a few beautiful shots!

I introduce you to my gorgeous sister, Natalie!

A Gift | Family Holiday Portrait Session – Pittsburgh, PA

Happy  New Year! I hope that everyone enjoyed the holidays. They go by too quickly!

Before Christmas, I had the opportunity to photograph some familiar faces. Scott, his sister Jamie, and I were able to sneak in some portraits of the two of them as a Christmas gift for their parents. We headed over to Phipps Conservatory in Pittsburgh to take advantage of the warm atmosphere and great surroundings. The holiday exhibit was really beautiful! The flowers and decorations made for the perfect backdrop. It was a nice opportunity to take some nice photos and check out the awesome exhibit.

We were cut a little short on time but somehow I still managed to take one too many photos! I had a difficult time picking out the right images because I had such great models to work with!

Enjoy!

Mahalo | Individual Portrait Session – Cecil, PA

It was another beautiful Sunday here in Pittsburgh. I was lucky enough to finally meet Scott’s friend who I have heard so much about. We didn’t plan on having a session tonight, but everything seemed to fall into place.

We talked, laughed, and the guys even played some instruments. Not to mention, we saw a huge spider! All in all, it was a fun evening.

Enjoy!

– The huge spider was on the other side of this tree! Yuck.

The Lantern, the Hat, and the Cup | Individual Portrait Session – Washington, PA

It’s been such a busy week! Now that I have a moment, it’s time for a new post.

I cannot believe how quickly the leaves are changing and falling.  Everyday I notice a tree in my yard that has either changed colors or lost its leaves. Fall is such a beautiful time of year but very short-lived.

Last weekend, I went out for round 2 of my photo session with Scott. Our session was  quick but fun! If the weather is nice again this weekend, I’ll be back out with him again and maybe even one of his friends.

I hope you enjoy this little sneak peak.

– More to come this weekend 🙂

The Trail | Individual Portrait Session – McMurray, PA

Well, here it is, my first true post! I know it’s a little delayed, but it has been one busy month!

We had quite a beautiful weekend here in Pittsburgh. I could not help but take advantage of the fantastic weather. I made it out twice…with my favorite person (who you will be seeing often on here)! With much patience, cooperation, and some occasional laughter I was able to capture a few great moments.

Enjoy these images…more to come soon!
