Golden Hour | My Favorite Sunset Shots of 2016
As promised, I've put together a few of my favorite golden hour shots of 2016. There may be one or two sunrise photos in the mix too (can you guess which ones?). 2016 was a seriously incredible year, and I can't thank all of you enough for trusting me to capture your memories. I hope you all love your photos as much as I do. I'm excited to go into 2017 and create more magic together!
Puppies and Senior pictures! What a fun combination! We had a great time at Zach’s senior session. He wanted to include his adorable dogs in his photos so we played with them for a while before branching out to different areas of Mellon Park. We took some really cool images and even had time for some night shots at the end.
Rachel & Ryan were incredible to work with. Let’s just start off by saying this is only part 1 of this session. Day 2 was all about the desert and the mountains! Be on the lookout next week.
We started at Torrey Pines overlooking the beach, taking advantage of the cliffs views. We then made the absolutely crazy & exhilarating hike down to the beach access, which included a pass through a small slot canyon, and using a rope to navigate a particularly steep rock face. I may have been covered head to toe in dirt by the end, but I had a smile on my face.
Iceland Trip | January 2019
As many of you know, Jon and I went to Iceland in December, exploring the southern coast and trying (and failing) to see the Northern Lights. Since seeing the lights is a bucket list item for me, I wasn’t content to miss out. As soon as our flight landed in Pittsburgh, I was already planning on the next trip.
Bahamas Trip | Winter 2019
My hubby was given the opportunity to go to the Bahamas this winter for his job, and of course I tagged along. Who could turn down a chance to spend four days soaking up the sun!?
We had mild weather (in the 70s most days), with one very rainy evening. The cooler temps didn’t prevent me from laying out on the beach or taking in a few water slides! It was in the 20s back in Pittsburgh, so this felt like heaven.
Phipps Conservatory High School Senior Session
Katarina’s bright, fun personality really shines through in her photos! The North Shore and Phipps Conservatory were perfect locations for her!
These two love birds were so much fun to photograph. They decided to take some portraits to celebrate their anniversary, and go to some of the spots they didn’t have time for on their wedding day. Personally, I love the idea of getting back in front of the camera for anniversaries. It’s always amazing to be able to re-capture that feeling of excitement.
