Families come in all shapes and sizes, and many families like to include beloved pets in their photographs, like this beautiful Staffordshire Bull Terrier. As a vital part of the family, of course he is included in this special maternity shot, which was taken on location along Pittsburgh's Allegheny riverfront.
Mom, of course the star of the shoot, stands out in turquoise and blue, with Dad 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.
I prefer an uncluttered and clean look to a portrait, so I typically will employ a number of techniques to get us there. I feel that this calls attention to the beautiful expressions, actions, and features of your family that you will want to remember.
