I was happy to be shooting many lifestyle family portrait sessions this winter!  This is such a sweet and different type of portrait session than the outdoor fall family sessions that are so very popular with my clients.

This mom has done several sessions with me in the past and is a pro at styling, she had a simple, neutral, fresh backdrop ready for me in one of the bedrooms, perfect for  a little jumping on the bed action!

Even though it was the middle of the day, the sun was low enough and the snow reflective enough that I got a couple of cute shots of these two outside, love it.

Pittsburgh Newborn Photographer | Baby Claire

Baby Claire is #2 for this family, whose newborn baby girl I photographed just a couple years ago!

Claire’s family prefers a simple & clean portrait session for the newborn portraits, which is perfect for my uncluttered style.  We shot this session in my Pittsburgh photography studio.

Studio portraits always usually look nice in black & white because of the higher contrast & directional lighting.

Pittsburgh Photographers | Newborn Baby Dylan

Adorable baby Dylan has just about the sweetest and most adorable big brother in the world, so he has a good example set for him as he grows into a little person!  His brother Caden is just a huge love bug!

This cute blue onesie fit him just right and I think it looked perfect on the irate bedspread in mom & dad’s room.  One of the first things I do when I arrive for a lifestyle newborn session is look around the house for brightly-lit areas with interesting or simple backgrounds for portraits.  We usually end up in the master bedroom at some point!

We got these timeless white portraits on the floor in the bedroom–very simple!  Window light and a blanket, done.

This background was actually a red Christmas blanket and a green wrap (since Dylan was born near the holidays) but I thought it looked super cool in black & white!

My helper Caden watching garbage trucks out the window… 🙂

The men!  Cute!

Lucky to get this babe with his eyes open, he was so sleepy and content!

Portraits in front of the Christmas tree are so fun!!  I have a holiday baby (who just turned 6!!) so I am nostalgic for this type of image.

Baby Dylan has the cutest nautical-themed baby nursery!  Navy blue, lime green, grey, and white.  So classic!

Thanks H family–I loved shooting your sweet boys!
