Waterfront Maternity Portrait Couple Walking with Dog

I featured a close-up portrait of this lovely family elsewhere in this Portfolio, and I thought it would be nice to feature them from another perspective. This time, Mom and Dad are walking the dog along Pittsburgh's beautiful Allegheny waterfront, with iconic bridges in the background. Like many of my clients, this family wanted to include the family dog, in this case a Staffordshire Bull Terrier, in the picture. Our pets are members of the family, after all!

Mom chose to stand out--as it should be in a maternity shot!--in a vivid turquoise top. Dad is all in blue. The muted grays and blues of the water, and the stone walkway on the pier, all add to the unique texture and color of this family portrait. The sparkles of light on the water add a bit of extra magic.

Because clients may choose several images, it makes for a nice grouping on the wall of the client's home. I work closely with my clients, and even hang their artwork, to ensure that they have the art for their home that they had envisioned.
