First Shoot of 2014: Shelby Winter Portraits

Happy 2014!
One of my favorite ways to ringing the New Year is by spending some time with my sister-in law Shelby and photographing our annual Winter Session.
These sessions are usually cold and involving Shelby being place in whatever unique creative circumstance I come up with.

Which as you can see can garner a lot of strange looks!
But we always have a lot of fun! And the photos are always fantastic!
Enjoy the previews below…

2013: A Year in Review

Recently I’ve noticed that all of my favorite social media applications are doing “Your Year In Review” features, asking me to review my year in colorful pictures, major life events and random statuses that garnered a lot of attention in the year 2013.

So I thought it would be fun to look back on the year that was…

Some highlights for me in 2013 were…
I shot on a beach for the first time ever!
I got to work with horses again. Which is something I used to love about my first photography job and have missed doing.
I got to do my first photography shoot out of state.
Revamped my website! (Thanks to my hubby for that!)
My Facebook page has almost has 100 likes after being in the lower thirties at the beginning of the year!
I shot a wedding without a second shooter which was daunting but a great experience.
I had the honor of being asked to photograph a charity event for Step by Step which was incredible.
And I tripled the size of my portfolio which is awesome!

I want to thank all of you for your support and business over the last year.
I have loved being a part of and capturing your memories and look forward to working with all of you again.
Have a safe and blessed 2014!

Crytzer Maternity Portraits – Frick Park – Pittsburgh, PA

I love being an Aunt.
I’ll brag about my nephew to anyone who will listen because well I might be biased but he’s the cutest kid …like ever.

So when I found out that my two favorite people in the entire world, (whom I also brag about as well) we’re going to make me an Aunt to another adorable little boy well – imagine how thrilled I was!

And while baby Neil’s arrival is still a few months away (and I cannot wait to meet him) we took some time to go (dodge hundreds if little kids jogging in the park) play in the woods and capture this very special moment in The Crytzer’s lives at Frick Park.

Below are some of my favorite shots from the day along with some tree climbing fun.

Austin – Rock n Roll Portraits!!!

I LOVE kid portraits! They’re like snowflakes, unique and special. Just like these portraits that I recently shot for Austin. He LOVES music, leggos and the outdoors and so we tried to capture all these things and more on our recent shoot. We used the Frick Art Museum and Mellon Park for these portraits.

Spring has sprung…

Spring is here! Spring brings with it the chance to explore and find new locations for portraits. My favorite model and sister in law was more than happy to take a few hours off to help pose in some of my new favorite locations as well as to re-visit some old favorites while showing off her stunning new prom gown. 

 
When I first saw Shelby’s dress I thought of the pink petals of the gorgeous magnolia trees that had been in full bloom recently thanks to the warm weather. But due to living here in Pennsylvania and having the most unpredictable weather the night before the shoot it frosted killing all of our beautiful pink blossomed friends. So we had to improvise.

I think in the end it all worked out for the best though. Shelby’s portraits turned out stunning as per usual. I am so lucky to have such a willing and beautiful model to use. (despite the weather conditions I put her in at times. ha ha)
