I shot this session last month when it was a nice warm day but the leaves hadn’t quite appeared on the trees yet.  This made it feel extra important to me to shoot this session when the lighting would be soft and lovely, which of course means golden hour!

Hard to believe but this mama was about 38 weeks pregnant in these photos and had her baby about a week later!

These two both moved to Pittsburgh from Europe a few months ago and will be raising their baby in our fine city of Pittsburgh, lucky little guy! 🙂

I already got to meet the handsome little one and will be shooting his newborn portraits next week.  Now that we have lush leaves on all the trees and warm temps we will get some portraits of him outside.

Pittsburgh Maternity Photographer | Laura G. Maternity Session

Laura called me about a Pittsburgh maternity photography session, and said she felt great being pregnant and wanted to capture the energy of the Brookline neighborhood where she lives.  We got the MOST PERFECT WEATHER on this day–around 70, clear, so lovely.  Right now (as I am writing this), it’s 20 degrees and snowing, just a couple weeks later.  Pittsburgh!!!

She sent me some great snapshots of the streets where we ended up shooting, and I said “yaaaaaas!!!”  I love a location that has meaning to my client and has qualities I look for–great lighting, deep space, and interesting details (like these awesome stairs.

Brittany & Phil Maternity Session

Baby girl is coming soon for Brittany & Phil!  We shot their session at a beautiful South Hills nature park in May of 2016.  We brainstormed some names for the baby… Phillipa, Philhomena, Phyllis… what do you think?

Brittany is only about a month away from her due date now, and she looks gorgeous.  I love most of these portraits in color, but I prefer this one in black & white.

Toward the end of our session the sun was setting, so I got some pretty hazy sun flare over Brittany & Phil.  I point my camera directly toward the sun for this type of image, but I use my hand to shade my lens while focusing… otherwise my autofocus goes a little crazy and can’t figure out what to focus on.
