Helena | Fox Chapel High School Class of 2017 | Canon Dual Pixel RAW

We shot gorgeous Helena’s session at Hartwood Mansion in the area between Fox Chapel and Allison Park.  This is an absolutely stunning location, LOVED it.  The bookish/historic background reminds me of Hogwarts!  The downside is that there are other families there doing portraits there too, but I don’t mind that too much. So along with […]

Lily Senior Portraits at Crossfit Mt. Lebanon | MLHS Class of 2016

When Lily contacted me to do a senior portrait inside of Crossfit Mt. Lebanon, my first thought was, “Yes!” But then I actually saw the inside and that quickly turned to “Wow!”  The gym itself is gigantic, not at all the cozy spot it looks like from the street. Lily and her whole family hit the gym at […]

Pittsburgh Senior Photographer | Tasha M. Senior Portraits | Mt. Lebanon, PA

My senior portrait involved a piece of scalloped velvet that was clamped on around my shoulders, and a single unretouched studio portrait–location shooting was not on anybody’s radar back in 1995.  Check out my totally 90s senior portrait here. Thank goodness that has changed (unlike my haircut, which is quite similar), as evidenced by these location shots […]

Pittsburgh Senior Photographer | Mt. Lebanon High School Class of 2016 | Elena

I have been working with many seniors in the past couple months and I love it so so so much!  They are so vibrant and full of personality! I had way too many keepers from this session but these next two are my absolute favorites.  I just love her expression and her pose. This is […]

Mt. Lebanon High School Fashion Show 2015 | Pittsburgh Senior Photographer

I had the honor and pleasure of photographing the 2015 Fashion Show at Mt. Lebanon High School. I’m told this is an annual tradition that goes back many years!  The theme this year was “Our 15 Minutes of Fame, ” inspired by Andy Warhol, and proceeds from the event went to Best Buddies and Mt. […]

Mt. Lebanon Senior Photographer | Zoe T | Class of 2015

Zoe is a senior at Mt. Lebanon high School and had so many fun ideas for her senior portrait! Her bravest and boldest idea was swimming in the fountain in late September–we were SUPER lucky that is was 80+ degrees on our shoot day, but the water was still very cold!! I convinced mom to join […]

Sasha B. | Class of 2014 | Pittsburgh Senior Photographer

Beautiful, check.  Smart, check.  Nice, fun, interesting?  Check! I got to hear about some great classes they are offering at the high school and it makes me almost wish I were still teaching (I said almost!).  More importantly, Sasha is the one that filled me in on “Sporks”–a contest in which the seniors at Mt. […]

Mt. Lebanon High School Senior Photographer | Brooke A. | Pittsburgh Senior Photographer

I got a glimpse into the lives of a couple Mt. Lebanon class of 2014 seniors in September, and it brought me back to my days as a high school art teacher, which was my job for 12 years!  I taught photography, drawing, painting, ceramics, and a few other arts-related courses, and I even taught […]
