Down on the Farm | Pittsburgh Senior Portrait Photographer – Senior Photo Session | Emily Hixon Photography
Emily’s senior portrait session was on a gorgeous, hot fall day! Who would have thought at the end of October in southwestern PA we would have an 80 degree day?! Poor Emily so desperately wanted to wear her fall sweaters, boots, and jacket but paid the price to do so! You would never know the difference from her photos because she looks just perfect.
Enjoy another senior beauty! 🙂
The Beauty of Fall | Pittsburgh Senior Portrait Photographer – Senior Photo Session | Emily Hixon Photography
Back in early February, I started photographing a family friend. Marina is a senior graduating in June of 2013. You may recognize her from some of my previous blog or Facebook posts. Her mom contacted me about one year ago with the idea to have seasonal senior portraits taken of Marina. As you may or may not remember, last winter was mild. We began with the winter portraits on one of the only snow days we received, which also happened to be the coldest day as well! Before we knew it, spring had arrived. The spring session was just beautiful and much more comfortable. We anticipated that the summer session would be really hot and sunny. Well, that was not the case! When the day arrived, it was only 59 degrees and cloudy. Poor Marina was actually shivering without a jacket over her sundress! Needless to say, the summer portraits still turned out nicely. Go figure, the fall session was the warmest and prettiest day of all. It was the perfect way to cap off the experience.
For the final session, we headed over to Soergel Orchards for some great fall themed portraits. We had a fun time exploring the main grounds area and the apple orchards. The session ended with some tasty treats and pumpkin coffee!
A Girl and Her Camera | Pittsburgh Senior Portrait Photographer – Senior Photo Session | Emily Hixon Photography
Several months ago, I was contacted by this sweet senior year girl. She expressed her interest in and love for photography. I was excited to hear that as a photographer herself, she decided that I was going to be the one to take her senior portraits. After being rained out several times this summer, we finally made this portrait session happen just recently. It was honestly the perfect and most beautiful late summer/early fall evening. I had a blast working with Amanda.
With all of the strange weather we’ve been experiencing this spring in Pittsburgh, I was not sure if this session was going to be in the snow, rain, or sun! Thankfully, it was sunny and spring-like day for this fun senior portrait session. You may recognize this familiar face from a previous post a few months back. I could not have been happier to work with and photograph such a beautiful and fun girl not only once but twice!
We spent most of Friday evening grabbing some great photos in one of my favorite places to take portraits in Pittsburgh. Marina really knows how to work the camera! Not to mention, she is more than willing to go along with my crazy ideas – including sitting on a small and uncomfortable rock surrounded by plants for a considerable amount of time! (Thanks, Marina and sorry about that ;-))
Enjoy another round of beauty!
It is always fun to photograph a familiar face. When my mom’s longtime friend and once college roommate asked me to be her daughter’s senior portrait photographer, I was honored. Her daughter is so absolutely gorgeous, so I knew that these portraits were going to be just beautiful.
We braved the cold this morning, yes the coldest day this winter yet, to get some photos in the snow before it’s gone! We moved quick to say the least! I have to say, you would never know that Marina was cold judging from her photos. I cannot thank these two enough for putting up with the weather and all of my crazy ideas.
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.
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!
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.
– The huge spider was on the other side of this tree! Yuck.
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 🙂
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!
