Have you ever tried to take portraits of your own child? How did that go? Hahaha! Probably something like my experiences with my children. Being a Pittsburgh child photographer is fun, tough, challenging and exciting. Winter has been slow though, so of course I turned to one of my six children for a photoshoot!
Remember some of those recent winter days that Pittsburgh was blessed with gorgeous warm weather? It took a good bit of coercion and bribery, but I finally got my daughter Jana to agree to let me take her to South Park for a few photos during sunset last week. Come along with us on our shoot and tell me, can you feel the warmth of the sunshine? LOVE that beautiful light!
Does this look like a 10 year old to you? This is our beginning of the session, “I’m being shy” pose.Sometimes as a mom, I am just overwhelmed by the pure beauty of my children.There were some birds making really creepy sounds in the trees and I used them as an opportunity to try to get Jana to relax and enjoy the session.It certainly worked! That smile makes me smile too.This one is just a fun, creepy photo, muahahahah!Oh, that sunset though. It was made just for us.I just love the background of this photo. The lines of the trees, the colors. It was starting to cool off though and I would say we were getting cold!Thank you, Jana. You did NOT want mom to take photos of you during our mother/daughter date, but I begged and pleaded and….bribed. You are a rock star!
