Summer photos outside in Pittsburgh

The summer weather is here in Pittsburgh! We have been taking photos outside in all the parks in these areas:

Robinson Township, Moon Township, North Park, South Park, Hartwood Acres, Sewickley, Ben Avon, Gibsonia, Bethel Park, Mount Lebonan, even downtown Pittsburgh has some green areas!

We have a few different options for great flexible packages for outdoor photos. It can be so much fun taking photos in an open area with beautiful scenery. Sometimes we have mini sessions which are very budget friendly- we will pick a park and plan to be there all day doing short and sweet sessions. This would be great for any type of session except newborns- those are best done in longer sessions and indoors.

 

This is a photo Tricia took at Blueberry Hill park in Wexford /Franklin park area.  This little girl had so much fun during her session. So much personality in her young age! You would never guess where this photo was taken- in the parking lot! The light was perfect here and it turned out so nice. The pull back photo is below. So fun to compare and what a difference from what we see to what can be done with a camera and lens.

So you see any location can work with some good lighting! We have some spots left this Saturday and July 13 for some mini sessions at North Park near the lake. They always come out so nice! If you want to be in the know about upcoming mini days email tricia@vivaportraitstudio.com to get on the email list. Our studio also has some nice outdoor spots so if you wanted to do a studio newborn session we could always hop outside for a couple quick photos! It is our pleasure to take updated photos of your family please keep us in mind if you are in need of beautiful photos!

Maternity Photo at our Pittsburgh studio

What is the saying? A picture is worth 1,000 words? Well we certainly believe it is worth that and more! Photos are so important and when you hire a professional to capture memories for you- you can be sure that is something you will never regret. Photos are precious. They can inspire us, make us laugh, make us cry, and transport us back to a moment years passed. I did not have maternity photos taken with my first two pregnancies. I just didn’t feel photogenic! But I do regret that! I did have another photographer take photos of me when I was pregnant with our third (and last). I still didn’t feel photogenic but now he’s almost two and I cherish those photos! Looking back I think I looked pretty darn good LOL!

 

Here is a recent photo of a beautiful mama that came to us for a maternity shoot. Our Robinson Twp studio was very convenient for her!

What do you think is she having a boy or a girl? We can’t wait to meet the newborn baby! Big sisters are so sweet and are going to be so protective of this little love.

 

Our studio is versatile and we are also able to take photos indoor or outdoor there (weather permitting). It’s nice to be able to run out in between rain storms this rainy June! We are going to be at North Park July 13th for a round of mini sessions by the lake- so if outdoor photos are your style definitely get on the calendar for that one!

 

Outdoor photos are great for toddlers who love to run around. Sometimes they feel pressured in a studio with all eyes on them and decide they would rather do anything than pose for a photo! There are so many things to look at outside and the wide open spaces give them the freedom they want.

Senior portraits

Did you know we do senior portraits too? We do! We have flexible packages and love to get creative shots of this age group! Our studio offers a great variety for these kind of photos but we also do a lot at Robin Hill Park which is near our studio in Robinson Twp. Senior portraits have come a long way since I was a senior in high school (thank goodness)! We love to collaborate with our clients- show us examples of photos you love and we will work together to make it happen!

Here are some recent senior photo shoots:

We can do portraits in any season with this age group. Snowy sessions are fun, late Spring has so many blooms and fall is always beautiful. We even offer a free quick yearbook shoot at the studio when you purchase our full package. That way you can get your yearbook photo in by the deadline and still have time to do creative portraits in the season you want to do them in.

If hair and makeup stying is something your gal wants we can definitely arrange that! It is so much fun to feel pampered for your photo shoot. And parents- if you are up for it this is a great time to jump in a couple shots with your grad-to-be!!

We have included siblings and pets as well- all up to you. Sports, theatre, dance, any activities can be incorporated into the session as well. Have fun with it!

Bloom 2019!

We absolutely love taking photos at the Pittsburgh Mom’s Blog event “Bloom”. It is a lovely event for pregnant mamas to be, moms with newborn babies, or moms with any age kiddos! It’s a pampering experience for any mom. We have had a photo station each year where we get “bump” photos or fun photos of moms together!

Here are some of the photos from the event!

Smiley newborn baby boy photos

Hi everyone! We have so many photos to share! It has been a busy busy Spring photography season! I wanted to share these adorable newborn photos from a recent session. This baby had so many cute facial expressions and smiles! This is mom and dad’s first baby and they couldn’t be more in love!

I love the candid photos we get in between the posed ones!! This is one of our favorite family photos! Our studio is great for both posed and candid photos. Newborn sessions are usually done within the first 2 weeks after baby is born. Babies change so much in the first few months! It’s nice to get photos of that little face as soon as possible after birth.

This photo of baby and Dad melts my heart. So many smiles!

After newborn some other milestone ages for babies are three months, six months and nine months. By nine months they are usually sitting up on their own and sometimes even cruising along the furniture! Of course first birthday photos are wonderful too- and it’s a celebration for parents and baby- parents for making it through a whole year of raising a baby!

We also do maternity photo sessions and would love to capture some images of Mama to be. Email Tricia to set up your session today–

We will be at Pittsburgh Mom’s Blog Bloom event May 11th from 12-3pm and we will be taking complimentary baby bump photos! Hope to see you there! more info can be found on their website- https://pittsburgh.citymomsblog.com/
