Rachel wanted something different and unique for her senior portraits. We talked about ideas all over Pittsburgh, but ended up settling on a mix of traditional portraits at Phipps, followed by an epic nighttime location in the Strip District.

Abbie had portraits done in Oakland, starting at the columns and the Cathedral of Learning. We then headed up a little farther to Phipps, before heading down to the North Shore. Looking back at these images has me yearning for spring to come so that I can get out there for the Class of 2019!
When the time finally comes for your senior portraits , don’t get stuck with stiff and unnatural poses. Below are a few poses to put a creative spin on this exciting shoot.
For Rachel's senior session, she wanted a mix of city and flowers. For that combination, there is no better place to go than Phipps and the North Shore! We started at Phipps and capture the gorgeous evening light.
Devin rocked this shoot. We went big, with smoke bombs, sunset photos, and night shots. We lucked out with amazing weather, and beautiful, golden-hour lighting that made the images really stand out.
Sarah wanted urban, but a focus on the historic buildings of the city instead of the traditional skyline. She decided on a combination of Pitt's campus and Phipps to bring in a more natural element. We started bright and early, right before sunrise.
Kicking off the first of many is Emily. She emailed me with a request for a boho-style shoot with a variety of backdrops. Of course the first place that came to mind was North Park, simply because of all the variety it has in one location. Waterfalls, the lake, woods, fields of grass, you name it. - it is all at North Park
