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!
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!
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!
