Schenley Park Maternity Photos in Pittsburgh, PA.
Mommy & Me sessions are incredibly special and rewarding, because we capture the maternity session (pre baby) and then once the baby is born, we do the newborn session at the baby's home.
We document these moments that are so joyous, full of emotions and incredibly intimate for everybody in the family and also for me, because what a privilege it is to document such a beautiful and special moment of your lives it is for me.
MT. Washington - Grandview Overlook Engagement | Steve + Alaina
I knew this surprised engagement was going to be special the moment Steve contacted me, but what I didn't know at the time was that this was going to be one of my all-time favorite photo shoots. There's an elegance and delicacy to the way Alaina reacted that was hypnotizing, and the way Steve's eyes sparked when he saw how happy Alaina reacted. I would say that this was the definition of what romanticism means.
Grandview Overlook Surprised Engagement | Danny + Elnaz
Danny first contacted me to see if I was available to document the surprise engagement he was planning for his girlfriend on a weekend trip they were planning to Pittsburgh.
He had never been to Mt. Washington, which is where Grandview Overlook is located in Pittsburgh, but he was open and receptive to hearing all the tips I was giving him to make this summer surprised proposal epic!

When I first read Keara’s initial message I was beyond excited. She had a pretty awesome vision in mind, and she was open to making some magic together.

Find out what happens when you pair coffee doughnuts and matching PJs -- Pure Magic! It's crazy how what we envisioned comes true. I had this vision for a couple of months before Tara reached out to me to tell me she had the same thing in mind.
Let me just start by saying something very important which is relevant to Tara + Luchin, but also to all of us humans. When your soul is happy, then rest assure you’re on the right track, and you’re exactly where you should be in life.

Eloping at Hartwood Acres Park in Pittsburgh PA
I know, I know! Covid-19 has been devastating and draining, but we should look at the bright side, and what positives it has brought to our lives. For one, many of us have had time to reflect, and discover things about ourselves that we were probably overlooking because of how fast we were living. For others, this time has been for love...

Mellon Park Fall Engagement During Sunset | Chris + Olivia
Nothing like a golden afternoon to celebrate love and friendship with your best friend. Chris and Olivia chose a formal, and a casual outfit, which worked out perfectly in Mellon Park, which has so many little spots to get gorgeous photos. And because we're still dealing with a global pandemic, and our realities have change, we took some memorable photos with the face masks we all wear out in public places.
Time flew by, and for me it was amazing to see them laughing and having a great time. <3

Otherwise, it wouldn't be real life.

What better way to spend an afternoon than doing a maternity session during golden hour. And this session was one of my all-time favorites. If you've been in Pittsburgh for the summer months you know it's hot but we have beautiful lighting and long days, and this afternoon wasn't the exception.
