Brooke + Gwynn | Pittsburgh Engagement Portrait Photographer – Engagement Photo Session | Emily Hixon Photography

Not too long ago, I received an email from a high school classmate of mine. Brooke and I played softball together when we were little girls as well. Time goes by so quickly! When Brooke told me that she was engaged and looking for a wedding photographer, I was honored that she thought of me. After meeting with her and her fiancΓ©, Gwynn, I was excited to be a part of their wedding day.

These two really love each other. For their engagement session, they brought along the other love of their lives: Scout. Scout is a rescue dog. Gwynn and Brooke rescued her a few years back. Now, they cannot imagine life without her. With the help of Brooke’s mom, we got some really great shots of these three. What a fun engagement session!

I cannot wait to photograph their September 2013 wedding! Enjoy.

Megan + Shawn | Pittsburgh Engagement Portrait Photographer – Engagement Photo Session | Emily Hixon Photography

Megan and Shawn are one of the couples whose wedding I will be photographing in 2013! As soon as I met them, I knew they were going to be fun to get to know throughout the upcoming year. They seemed more like friends than anything to me almost immediately. Their engagement session was great! We were extremely lucky. You never know what to expect in December. The day of their session came and the forecast was calling for rain. Thankfully, the sun was shining until just moments after the session ended and the rain began to fall! It was nearly 60 degrees for their “winter” engagement portraits.

I am super excited to be a part of this couple’s special day in July. Until then, enjoy these lovely engagement portraits! πŸ™‚

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.

Little Miss Christmas | Pittsburgh Child Portrait Photographer – Child Photo Session | Emily Hixon Photography

Last week, I met this little lady and her mom at their house for a Christmas-themed mini session. It was a bit cold and rainy that afternoon so with only a few moments for outdoor portraits, we headed inside where her dogs joined in on the fun. Somehow (with Goldfish Crackers), we managed to get the three to sit still just long enough to snap a photo!

Enjoy! πŸ™‚

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 . . .

Working on the Railroad | Pittsburgh Child Portrait Photographer – Child Photo Session | Emily Hixon Photography

This little guy just turned two! His birthday was on Thanksgiving this year. Right now, he is all about trains – specifically Thomas! For his session, we headed to the railroad. Although we didn’t see any trains, he did not seem at all disappointed. A little bribery (Goldfish crackers) and his favorite toy (Thomas) made him forget that he was even being photographed. Wait until you see the last photo of him climbing and reaching for a Goldfish cracker on top of a concrete slab.

Pictures with Emily | Pittsburgh Child Portrait Photographer – Child Photo Session | Emily Hixon Photography

A few weeks ago, I met with little Miss Ella and her mom! The last time I saw Ella was early spring of this year. It is amazing how much she has grown over the last several months! She went from a baby to a little girl so quickly! When her mom told her that I was taking her pictures, she said she wanted to make a drawing for me. It has to be the most adorable “client” gift I have ever received. She was so excited about having her pictures taken that she went home and said to her dad when she walked in the door “Dad, pictures with Emily!!” I can’t wait to see Ella, her mom and dad again soon when they welcome their new baby!

Don’t you love this?? πŸ™‚

Giving Thanks | Emily Hixon Photography- Pittsburgh Photographer

It is that special time of year once again. A time when family and friends are near, laughter fills the air and love fills our hearts. The holidays are always a wonderful reminder of what is truly important in life. If you have the privilege to spend today eating a beautiful meal with those people who mean the most, count your blessings. We often forget just how fortunate we are to have the chance to give thanks for all that we have today and every day.

Not only am I thankful for being able to live in this country with all of these great modern day conveniences, I am thankful for many things. Today and all other days of the year, I am thankful for my family and husband-to-be, Scott. Without their love and support, I would not be where I am in my life.

I am also thankful for my dog and little buddy, Speck. He is fun, loving and full of life!

Although I am not thankful for having type 1 diabetes, I am thankful for the available treatment that keeps me alive every single day! My insulin pump is my lifesaver.

Finally, I am thankful for being able to do what I love and love what I do! My biggest thanks goes out to all of YOU who make this dream a reality. Thank you!! As part of my appreciation, I would like to offer a giveaway to celebrate the holiday and to celebrate reaching over 500 fans on my Facebook page!

Happy Thanksgiving!!

I am off to spend time with my family and eat delicious food like this yummy apple pie homemade by my sister, Natalie! She makes everything from scratch and is taking orders for Christmas πŸ˜‰

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! πŸ™‚
