Pittsburgh Portrait Photographer | Anna

Posted on September 3rd, 2014

I haven’t even known Anna a year yet but she’s become my closest friend and one of my biggest supporters in my transition into a full time photography business.  This was a last minute shoot one evening and she was willing to climb through the fields (luckily there were just lots of bunnies no bugs) and sprint back to the car for our 2nd location as we tried to beat the setting sun.  I don’t know why it’s taken us this long to plan a shoot together!  These are some of my favorite images from this summer.

One Day, He Grew Up | Pittsburgh High School Senior Photographer

Posted on July 10th, 2014

This past spring, I headed back “home” to Philly to take a picture of something that might not happen for a long long time – my family, 14 people (with spouses and kids), all being in the same place at one time. Most of the time we are not all even in the same state, sometimes not even in the same country. I guess that’s what happens when you have 8 children and give them a sense of adventure.

 

 

Living 6 hours away from family four years has made some mundane milestones seem huge in my eyes. Like the very normal occurence of my brothers getting taller or filling out college applications. But I still get caught off guard. And that weekend, when I was out in Philly, my youngest brother needed an updated photo so we created a mini shoot and pulled another brother along for the ride. We goofed off and had fun and talked about new music we found, just like always. It wasn’t really until I was home and going through the photos when I realized how old my brothers really were. And how tall.

Because I have proof. I have proof that they were once too short to reach the top of the Christmas tree. Or reach the top of a gate. And proof that they were willing from a young age to head out on mini adventures for the sake of their sister’s need to take pictures.

Then they grew up.

Shady Side Academy High School Senior Photography | Sean B

Posted on July 7th, 2014

Sean was hands down an absolute blast to work with! We met on one of the only warm days of February (right before being blanketed with snow and single digit temperatures again). You would never know that we were still in the middle of winter on that afternoon. We met up right after an awards ceremony for Sean and set out on exploring Oakland. He was up for just about anything from windy Schenley Bridge, the Mellon Institute, and a few fun streets (where my trusty assistant Sara kept an eye out for cars). Sean is a 2014 graduate of Shady Side Academy High School so he has already finished up! Congrats!
