We held Mother’s Day minis at the Ace Hotel in April of 2019 to celebrate mothers and capture the unique bond we have with our little ones. I am thrilled with how these sessions turned out and shed a tear while sorting and editing some of these special images! I am such a softie!

I’ve always wanted to shoot at the Ace Hotel in Pittsburgh–the vibe is chic and hip, and the decor is classic American… simple & modern, utilizing dependable materials and a neutral palette. They have a signature Pendleton wool blanket that is designed specifically for each city, and the Pittsburgh blanket has bright red and blue rectangles that give off that vintage-modern look that is distinctly Pittsburgh.

This turned out to be the ideal location for this shoot. The staff at the Ace Hotel was of great assistance in planning my event. We got their largest corner suite, and it could not have been a more ideal location for these cozy lifestyle images.

Something that surprised me was the beautiful portraits I got of the moms. Each one looks relaxed & happy. These individual portraits of mothers almost certainly will be the images most valued by their children as they grow. Here are a few of my favorites:

I definitely plan on offering this session next year! Make sure you are on my email list to have first access to this event and others.

Here are a few of my other favorite images from this day:

I welcomed Tommie and her friends to my studio a couple weeks ago for a shoot to celebrate their friendship!

Tommie is facing pediatric neuroblastoma and is headed to NYC this month for surgery to remove a tumor in her abdomen. She will have these photos to think of her friends while she is away.

Tommie, I wish you the best and can’t wait for you to return to Pittsburgh!
