Dane is a great hockey player, and he and his family wanted to highlight that during his senior session. Of course we had to go to PPG Paints Arena to start. We did his hockey portraits there, and then drove down to Station Square to get more of a city vibe. It was a busy night, and Dane put up with all the people watching like a champ! As per usual, we ended with some epic night shots along the river.

We did a lot of walking on this senior portrait session! The shoot kicked off with a hike down to the bottom of Panther Hollow for casual pictures. Then we drove to the Cathedral of Learning for some formal shots. Personally, I love when my senior guys come decked out in a full suit.
Olivia wanted a mix of city & garden for her senior pictures. So we started off her shoot at the walled garden at Mellon Park. It is always a classic location with elegant, curated gardens & architectural details. After just a short rain storm interrupted our session, we headed down to Point State Park to finish off the shoot. We had a gorgeous sunset to end the night!
Sophia brought me a fun idea for her senior portraits. We did half of her session at Phipps, and then did the other half of her session underwater! Definitely something unique that I had never done before. Putting my camera underwater for the first time was terrifying, but I had a blast. So excited to share these images!
Emily chose the Strip District for her city senior session. We had to work around some of the construction that is happening on Smallman, but there were plenty of amazing spots open. At the tire-yard, we used both smokebombs and sparklers for some fun elements. Luckily, we ended up with an amazing sunset to cap off the night!
Laughter, smiles, hats, bubble gum, night shots, and a smoke bomb!? How much more magical can a senior portrait session be? Emily could not stop grinning from ear to ear during her shoot. She is one of the happiest, bubbliest people I've ever met. She had me smiling the whole session. Check it out!
Carlyn had the picture perfect fall day for her senior portraits. We started off at Phipps Conservatory & Schenley Park, walking all around the outdoor scenic gardens. I adore the maroon and red tones of her chosen outfits - they went perfectly with the fall leaves and golden hour lighting.
Chloe's senior portraits had a garden vibe to them. The locations and outfits brought to mind spring time, even though we shot these in September. Flowy dresses, floral tops, and garden settings came together perfectly. You may not think it based on these images, but it actually sprinkled on us a little bit while we walked around.
