Maggie is 100% Adorable // Pittsburgh Children's Photographer

I love donating portrait packages to auctions that benefit charities and other good causes. For the past several years, this has included an annual donation to Gemini Children’s Theater’s Royal Ball, which supports their ability to provide performing arts opportunities to children and their families in Pittsburgh. Fostering children’s passions and arts education is SO important. I’ve loved the art of photography ever since I was teeny tiny, and I’m so fortunate that I was surrounded with the support and resources to follow that passion.

This year, my tiny client via this auction win was (newly) 2-year old Magnolia, or Maggie for short. Maggie’s mom was just about to have a younger sibling (how exciting!), so this portrait session was this cutie’s last hurrah as an only child and a fun, special day for her to remember. Because of this, I decided that we would photograph the session on a bright pink background, her favorite color. Maggie is utterly full of personality, impish and upbeat, but simultaneously sweet and gentle. She also likes some pretty rad music, such as Lizzo, Brandi Carlile, and Paul Simon. Coming from a family that loves and plays music, Maggie also enjoys playing all of the various musical instruments in her house.

I have SO enjoyed getting to know this lovely family, and I can’t wait to watch Miss Maggie grow up. A couple of days after I delivered their prints, Mom delivered a healthy, beautiful baby girl. So, a HUGE “congratulations” to all of them, including Maggie, who is going to be a fabulous big sister!

Georgia's Heart Will Go On // Pittsburgh Children's Photographer

I have been so very excited to share this session. Beautiful, little Georgia has been my studio ambassador for the last year and half, and it has been a highlight of my career thus far getting to know her and her family and watching this tiny one grow. She was always a bit of a ham in front of the camera. (You can check out her first session with me when she was only 1 1/2 years old - already living her best life on set.) In the past couple of years, she has grown from this chubby-cheeked, adorable, silly baby to a truly stunning little girl, full of personality, character, and poise (but, still, totally silly!).

Since Georgia has started dancing at Studio 19, she’s become so adept at pointing her toes and posing in this statuesque, graceful manner that photographs like a ~* dream *~. So, of course, there are many images that highlight that. But, she’s also still so little, and that youthful joy and innocence spills out in bursts of giggles and energetic hair flips that scream, “Lexi, click the shutter now, now, now!” Georgia also loves to do this somewhat interpretive form of dance where she enters a trance-like state and feels the music on this incredibly deep level for a 3-year old. Her current jam for this is “My Heart Will Go On” by Celine Dion. The two images below where she has her eyes closed in her frilly pink dress were created by my just going along for the ride, as it were, as she dramatically performed her little heart out to the song.

I know that every time I photograph Georgia, I’m in for a fun day and for the creation of some gorgeous imagery.
I’m SO proud to have her as a POSE PGH Studio Ambassador.

Georgia also completely embodies just why I do what I do and my approach to photographing children. This child absolutely lights up once you get on her on the set. She’s only 3 years old, but she relishes in her “model moment,” and that has been my experience time and time again on this journey. If the portrait session is framed as their special day, a day of pampering catered to them, and the environment is relaxed and light and fun, children actually l-o-v-e it and you can create some gorgeous imagery beyond the old, stale “sit still and say cheese” stuff. Also, even being so young, she has developed such a strong, individual personality. She is, undoubtedly, her own (little) person. When a client books a portrait session with me, I really strive to get to know the children ahead of time so that I’m capturing their essence. That’s all that a photograph really is, after all: a frozen moment in time. As parents, there are so many moments and things about your babies that you wish you could freeze and hold onto forever: that look they give you when they’re feeling mischievous, the way they smile like their dad (but with a missing front tooth), that silly dance they love to do. That’s what I want to capture. In the Instagram era where it seems like everyone is trying to put things into these perfectly-composed square boxes, we need to remember the perfection in the tiny, imperfect moments. That’s what you really want to remember. That’s what you will remember. I hope that my images can capture as much of it as possible for you to look back on fondly years and years from now.

Viva La Vida // Pittsburgh Children's Photographer

Vida, now 3-years old, is one of the cutest little girls that I’ve ever seen in real life. From her sparkling blue eyes to her gorgeous mop of curls, she is like a living doll. (And, she certainly photographs like one, as well!) Vida loves all things girly like playing dress-up and glitter, and has the most adorable affinity for Lady Gaga. We seriously got the best smiles out of her for her close-up portraits by just yelling “LADY GAGA!” over and over together. When we met, Vida was just beginning her foray into modeling, so we scheduled her a Comp Card Session to get her set up for success. In the brief time between our session and now, this little one has been BUSY BUSY BUSY. She’s already been featured in multiple magazines, including with my images in Madison Magazine’s July issue. I’m so excited to follow along with her journey and continue to photograph her as she grows up. One last little anecdote before I wrap this one up: When I arrived at Vida’s house to deliver her printed comp cards and stunning acrylic block, she proudly answered the door wearing these gorgeous bejeweled kitten-heeled shoes. They were a purchase for Halloween, but Miss Vida needed to fabulously strut around in these, her first pair of heeled shoes, immediately, just because. And, that’s just how fabulous and hilarious and sparkly Vida is every day.

That's What Friends Are For // Pittsburgh Children's Photographer

Right now, we are smack dab in the middle of the #POSE4PICKET contest - the biggest giveaway that I host all year. It’s always so incredibly adorable and fun, and another wonderful opportunity to partner up with The Picket Fence, the best boutique in Pittsburgh.

If you like contests and giveaways, however, you will LOVE the POSE PGH VIP Facebook Group. I host smaller ones regularly in there where I give away prizes ranging from gift cards to mini-sessions. I swear, I have the most wonderful people in that group, and I love that it gives me the opportunity to get to know you better outside of the studio, too.

A few months ago, I held a VIP Group “Share the Love” Giveaway where two moms who were friends both won their own mini-sessions at the studio for their kiddos. They got to all come in and experience it and spend a lovely afternoon at the studio together. All of the girls are dancers at the same studio and it was really special to see the way that they encouraged one another throughout the sessions.

I wanted to photograph the sessions on a new bright red backdrop that I had just ordered, so I styled the kids in light denim and white to keep things editorial, but youthful and colorful. I also opted to light everything with a good bit of contrast in order to give the images some punch and make the vibrant colors really shine. The first set of siblings I photographed were Amelia and Nathan. Amelia has the most gorgeous blue eyes and disposition and Nathan was just a natural in front of the camera and so wonderful to spend time with. Their interactions when they were posed together were adorable - so easygoing and supportive. Next up were Sydney and Morgan, who wore the perfect twirly dresses for some fun dance images. Morgan is effervescent and sweet and Sydney is so gentle and kind. I wanted to capture that beautiful sisterly bond between them, so I photographed them in softer poses together. While our primary goal was to create some beautiful memories and wall art for their homes, we also made sure to photograph a winning head shot for each of the girls to use in the upcoming dance season.


#POSE4PICKET only happens once a year - so, please join the VIP Facebook Group! I might never have met these two amazing families without it, and I can’t wait to meet you someday, too!

True Blue // Pittsburgh Family Photographer

This session was for another wonderful family that came my way courtesy of a charitable auction donation. I truly treasure the ability to give back to the city that has given me so much however I can, and donating my services to charity through auction packages is a fabulous way to do so and to meet so many new, fabulous people.

Little Annie, 3 1/2 years old at the time of our session, was a bundle of energy and cuteness. She picked out her favorite green princess dress to wear for her images, and danced and twirled the time away. Annie has gorgeous blue eyes, and I love that I was able to capture her literal “wide-eyed innocence” in her solo portrait. Baby Charlotte had the most adorable little smile, and you could really see the beautiful bond between the sisters during our time spent together. Charlotte definitely admired Annie and wanted to keep up with her, while Annie clearly adored Charlotte and was a loving big sister, holding her hand, guiding her, and snuggling her tightly. Mom and Dad mentioned potentially stepping in for a family image, and you knoooow my thoughts on this: DO IT! So, we created a lovely family image, as well.

As per usual, I aimed to match the family’s decor. Their family room is filled with darker blue tones and off-white. In order to create images that would still pop a little bit on their walls, I photographed the session with more contrasty, bright lighting and a white backdrop, but pulled everything back in post-production to be warmer and softer. When choosing the wardrobe, particularly for their group image, I chose tones of blue and gray, with a color pop of dusty pink for the baby. I love the harmony of how the colors all mingle so nicely.

Simon Says, "Pose!" // Pittsburgh Children's Photographer

I soooo love working with the Arias family. They are so hardworking, inspirational, and gorgeous, and I love that I’ve been able to photograph their babes several times recently. After focusing on Princess Sienna last session, we wanted to shoot some beginner modeling images for Baby Simon this go-around. He is just the happiest, smiliest, most easy to photograph little nugget and we had such a fun, adorable day together. I still photographed the session in a very editorial style, which I don’t often get to do with the bitty babes, but it was a breeze with Simon, and I was so amazed with how well he gave me eye contact throughout the session. And, those eyes, man… the cutest! We were also able to create a few canvas gallery wraps for display in the family’s home, so that Simon could join his older sister in adorning the walls. Now, when you enter, you’re greeted by that tiny 4.5 toothed-smile as a 16x24 canvas, which is delightful.

At the end of the session, we brought in Sienna for a few images. I was so overjoyed that I’d get to photograph her again - she absolutely lights up on camera. She needed some head shots that would help her win the pageants she’d been entering, as she kept coming soooo close and just narrowly missing the top spot. I’m elated to hear that the head shots we created together have been just what she needed and that she’s been routinely getting the highest photo score, winning “most photogenic,” and snagging first place in her recent pageants. (Sienna is a talented, little rockstar, but if you want your little one to do well in a pageant, you neeeed the right head shot. Sound like just what you need? Let’s chat!)

The Donahoe Family // Pittsburgh Family Photographer

It’s always a fun change of pace having a family of all adults in the studio. A lot of people don’t know that I also photograph “big kids,” but, yep! If I can photograph a 3-year old moving target, I promise that I can create a gorgeous image of your (stationary) family noooo problem. (I tend to book these as 1-hour Basic Sessions. An hour is usually all that we really need when everyone is old enough to sit still and take direction. ;) ) These multi-generational Pitt fans came to me for a more classic session, including some group images and images of their sons together.

The Donahoe family has been connected to mine forever, although I never had the pleasure of really getting to know them until now. And, when I say forever, in my case especially, I mean forever: Jean (mama) was working in the delivery room when I was being born. She’s a really wonderful woman and a recent cancer survivor, and the family decided to come have some formal portraits taken now that she’s healthy.

I’m going to go off on a little tangent, here… **SIDEBAR** Sometimes, it takes something big or scary like that to remind us just how important it is to have our portraits taken, so that we can exist in them forever in a way. I’m a super big proponent of this. Any time that I’m going to photograph children and the parents are on the fence about hopping in for an image or two, I will emphatically encourage them to do so. It’s never going to be the “right” time, guys, honestly. You may not ever lose the silly 10 pounds that you want to, that no one really notices but you. You may not have it allotted for in the budget *this* year, or the next, or the next, or the next (you see where this is going?). But, those images are going to be something so special to you, and beyond that, they will be SO special to your children. If you’re apprehensive to get in front of the camera, I hope that you can overcome that with them in mind, because someday, those images will be all that they have. It is so important to exist in images.

Three words to describe the session: Modern, Simple, Formal

Maelyn's Got the Look // Pittsburgh Children's Photographer

Clients like 9-year old Maelyn and her mama are a reminder to me just how lucky I am. Not only have I been privileged enough to do what I love for a living, but I also get to meet so many amazing children and people that may have never come into my life otherwise. These two ladies have just been such an immense joy to work with and to get to know better.

On top of being ridiculously beautiful, Maelyn has such an incredibly pure heart, and once you get to know her a little bit and she opens up, she is such a feisty, little ball of enthusiasm, energy, and personality. When I arrived at Maelyn’s home for her in-home consultation, I was greeted by both Maelyn and her mama with warm hugs. I’m 1000% a hugger through-and-through, but those usually don’t end up happening until the session and until folks have gotten to know me a bit. But, not these ladies. I was literally welcomed into their home with open arms and it was the best. thing. ever.

I’m all about personalizing a session however I can and as much as I can. Maelyn’s mama is a super talented children’s clothing designer and runs her own online boutique, Avery With Grace. I wanted to ensure that we incorporated some of her lovely clothing into Maelyn’s wardrobe for the session, so I selected both a bright rainbow shirt and an adorable polka dot dress that she had made. Since we were photographing a Comp Card Session, I chose a variety of wardrobe: some dressier, some more casual, and some that was right in the middle. I also opted to photograph the session on a purple backdrop, as it’s Maelyn’s absolute faaaavorite color, and she was ecstatic about it.

Maelyn already has a signature look. Her family calls it “The Maelyn Look.” It’s a hauntingly gorgeous model stare that she can snap into and out of like a little professional. We chose to use an image of this look for her head shot on the front of the comp card, because it’s beyond gorgeous.

The Sweeter Side of POSE PGH // Pittsburgh Children's Photographer

When I was choosing my 2018 studio ambassadors, I came across a really special application from a remarkable family. I was so excited that these amazing women, grown and tiny, wanted to represent the studio, and I knew that they would be absolutely perfect.

Mama bear, Jacquie, writes the loveliest blog called The Sweeter Side of Mommyhood. The blog began as a way to update friends and family on her middle daughter, Grace’s, journey. Grace was a beautiful little babe, born prematurely, who faced a world of struggles and health issues that left her with profound hearing loss. (You can read Grace’s story here.) People outside of Jacquie’s circle began to follow along with her blog and root for little Grace, which allowed the blog to blossom into what it has become today: a gorgeous, little mix of personal anecdotes and stories of motherhood, combined with crafty ideas for home decor and entertaining your little ones, recipes, and ways to be creative in your everyday life.

Our portrait session together took place not long after Grace’s successful cochlear implant surgery. So, I definitely wanted to get a good image that highlighted them and told her story, in a way. But, let’s not forget the rest of the crew! Sally, the youngest, is a spitfire, full of sass and personality in a pint-sized package. She also has vision issues and wears the tiniest, yet chicest glasses (she’s also a brand rep for Jonas Paul Eyewear). She was over-the-moon excited to have “princess hair” for the portrait session and was infectiously bubbly and joyous on set. The eldest, Lilly, is so sweet, incredibly intelligent, and the most nurturing, patient big sister you could hope to have. I was so impressed with her poise and maturity, as she balanced posing beautifully for her images and keeping an eye on her army of little sisters. Even the bitty baby of the family, Olive, joined the girls for a portrait of all four of them together!

In order to make this session extra special and magical for these lovely ladies, I enlisted the help of my favorite collaborators, Airheads Balloon Art. They created some giant balloon clusters for me in the perfect color palette to match the wardrobe that I had selected and the overall vibe of the session. Last, but certainly not least, Deanna Machi gorgeously styled the hair of all three ladies to “princess” perfection.

If you’d like to learn more about what it’s like to experience a portrait session at POSE PGH, don’t just take my word for it! You can read Jacquie’s blog about their session here.

Lynzee's Ambassador Session // Pittsburgh Children's Photographer

After photographing Lynzee for an Editorial Session last year and getting to know her and her wonderful family, I just had to have them on board as POSE PGH Studio Ambassadors.

I love the chance to photograph dark and moody work with little ones, and I knew that Lynzee’s Ambassador Session would be the perfect time to do so. With the crazy talented Deanna Machi on board to style hair, I wanted to give her creative carte blanche to choose a gorgeous, editorial style that she felt would fit the mood of the session. When she showed me her styling concept, I was elated - it was PERFECT! I wardrobed the session from Lynzee’s closet, sticking to basics to really keep the focus on her adorable face and fierce hair. But, when I found that luxe leather skirt, I knew that we had to use it, too. I love the interplay of hard and soft, dressy and casual, girly with a hint of rock and roll or streetwear, and I’ll jump at any opportunity to style my sessions that way. Everyone involved in this one, big and small, totally nailed bringing my vision to life and I really love this set of images.

Favorites of 2018 // Pittsburgh Children's Photographer

I can not believe that I’m already sitting down to write my end-of-the-year blog for 2018. Time has absolutely flown by and I have NO IDEA where this past year’s worth has gone. The theme of 2018 for POSE PGH was definitely “making plans.” It has been a year of dreaming and scheming and putting together a plan of action for the studio moving forward. There are some really exciting things in store for 2019, some that I’d hoped to have accomplished in 2018, but like I said: whew… where did this year go?! Sometimes being a one-woman show running your own business is incredibly exhausting. However, all of you and your wonderful kiddos make it so, so, SO rewarding and every day that I wake up and get to do this is an amazing gift. I love all of you so very much, and I’m looking forward to another year full of cuteness and tiny high-fives and creating beautiful artwork.

Happy New Year! xoxo

Here are some of my favorite images that I created in 2018.

The Muppet Show, Starring... Koraleigh! // Pittsburgh Children's Photographer

One of the best parts of being a photographer is really getting to know the families that I work with, building a relationship with them, and watching the kiddos grow up and the families grow in number. I had the honor of photographing Kellan for his first birthday last year, and now, it was his little sister, Koraleigh’s turn for her 1-year portrait session.

This Mama comes up with the MOST FUN birthday party themes that really get my creative juices flowing. When she told me that Kora’s party theme was going to be classic 70s Muppet Show, I was over the moon and instantly started brainstorming as to how to incorporate that in a modern, sophisticated way. The first thing that came to my mind was the “Mahna Mahna” song and The Snowths, so I decided to make them out of paper and put the baby right in between them to recreate the skit. And, of course, the most iconic imagery from The Muppet Show is Kermit doing his opening monologue on stage, in front of the luxe, red curtain. I snagged some gorgeous velvet fabric to make a tiny version for Kora to sit in front of, and we put her in fuzzy, green pants. (I shifted the color of them to be more “Kermit green” while retouching the images.) It was as if she knew her role, and while I was photographing this set, she kept doing her “SO BIG” arms, and it looked like she was most definitely hosting the show and excitedly introducing a guest.

I’m so grateful for the relationship that I’ve built with this family, and I cannot wait for the next party theme and creative challenge!!!

Orange You Glad? // Pittsburgh Family Photographer

I looove donating portrait packages to various charitable auctions around the city! Not only does it help raise money for a myriad of amazing causes, but it enables me to meet and photograph wonderful families that I might not otherwise have had the opportunity to meet. This family came to me courtesy of my donation to The Imani Gala, an annual fundraiser held on behalf of Imani Christian Academy. You can read more about it here.

The main goal of our portrait session was to capture a few adorable images for baby Abigail’s first birthday. We decided to also create some images of the whole family together, as well as some of just the kiddos, including Sebastian, 4 1/2-years old, and Marcella, 2 1/2-years old. Dad also really wanted to capture a solo image with the babe, and it ended up being one of my favorites from the day. Right before taking a “smiley” image, Dad kissed her on the cheek as I hurriedly snapped away. It was such a beautiful little unplanned moment, and went hand-in-hand with Mom wanting a more natural feel to the session.

The decor in their home is mostly earth-toned with some gorgeous pops of color here and there. To match this, I opted to photograph the session on an off-white backdrop, but I still wanted to have some pops of color, as well. Mom delivered me my dream “color pop” when she showed me Abigail’s birthday dress for her party: a beautiful, vibrant orange number with lovely detailing. When choosing the rest of the family’s wardrobe for the session, we pulled colors from that detailing to tie everything together. Mom knew that she had a stunning green dress to coordinate with the green accents, and we outfitted the rest of the crew in tones of navy and white. I think that Sebastian’s green shoelaces were my favorite subtle detail.

I’m SO pleased with how these images turned out, and loved every minute spent with this family.

Sienna, The Little(st) Princess // Pittsburgh Children's Photographer

“Now presenting: Contestant Sienna Capri!”

This was my introduction to newly 3-year old Sienna, as she strutted through her living room, serving us her best pageant walk and smile. Accolades? She already has those in spades: pageant titles (Natural Elite PA Tiny Miss, Mars PA Wee Toddler Miss, East Coast USA Toddler Supreme Queen, + more!), brand repping for several fashion brands, being published in magazines, and a large, ever-growing Instagram following. Mom is one of the most adept, savvy mom-agers that I’ve had the pleasure of working with, and I am so impressed by the accomplishments, drive, and hustle of this entire family.

Sienna is simply adorable and a born performer. Between wanting to practice her pageant entrance and showing off the new tumbling exercise she had learned in class that day, she gave me a dissertation on her favorite Disney princesses and what makes each one of her dolls unique. Sienna’s favorite color is pink, and being that she is one of the most outgoing children that I’ve worked with to date, I decided to photograph the session on the most vibrant, hot pink backdrop possible. On top of this, the family’s living room decor is all neutral tones, and I knew that the pink would make for some gorgeous, statement piece wall art in the sunny space. We ended up creating a beautiful display of three 24x36 canvas gallery wraps that were almost life-size to little Sienna. Additionally, we assembled her first real comp card for her to use at various castings, as she is just beginning to dip her tiny toes into the world of modeling and acting, as well.

I love how these images turned out and how much of Sienna’s personality + sass I was able to capture. She really lights up in front of the camera, and I can’t wait to see this teeny diva grow up and continue to shine.

Born to Run with Zoey // Pittsburgh Children's Photographer

I really, truly love meeting the families and important people in the lives of the kiddos that I work with. Before photographing Zoey, I had the pleasure of meeting a whole bunch of her family, and let me tell you… afterwards, it was easy to understand why she’s so loving, kind, and warm. I want to so humbly thank them for being so welcoming and appreciative and gracious to me in the time that we spent together.

Mom is a fan of both vintage/mid-century and city loft/metropolitan aesthetics, and I wanted to combine those for her in this portrait session. Through lighting, wardrobe selection, and retouching/color-grading I took this session back to the seventies (still with a modern edge), but I also decided that we should go outside and create some images in the urban area surrounding my studio. (Whoa! - Miss Lexi leaving the studio is not something that happens often anymore!)

Zoey, newly 5 years old, is a gentle soul, talkative and sweet, and a bit sassy when the occasion calls for it. She also has the most amazing taste in music. What other 5-year old has a penchant for Bruce Springsteen and Stevie Wonder?! We had several things that we wanted to capture in this portrait session, including her adorable personality. Firstly, it was nonnegotiable that I create a portrait of Zoey and her beloved Uggie, a giraffe blanket that has loyally served as her lovey and BFF. I decided to have her also wear her favorite dress in this image - this image in particular was alll for Zoey. (She was sure to tell me that this dress was her favorite when I went over for their Styling and Planning Consultation and to correct me when I referred to is as turquoise - “It’s Tiffany blue!”) Zoey has a few other treasured friends: a set of vintage-looking rag dolls that they call “The Sisters.” They fit right in with the seventies vibes of the session. Mom also found some amazing temporary tattoos that helped yield some of my favorite images ever.

The session, of course, wouldn’t have been the same without incredible hair and makeup by Tori Bivins. When it’s time for your session, I so highly recommend adding on styling services!

Montana, Ooh Na-Na // Pittsburgh Children's Photographer

While I am super appreciative of all of my clients for choosing me to be the one they trust to photograph their beautiful babies, it is always incredibly flattering when someone from out of state finds me and makes the trek to the studio. So, imagine just how surprised and humbled I was when I received an inquiry all the way from Montana! 

These little girls could not get any more stunningly gorgeous. Emma, 9 years old, and Esabelle, 6 years old, are talented dancers who especially love to tap. Eden, 3 years old, looks up to her big sisters and loves to twirl and dance and pose around the house. We, of course, needed to include the baby of the family, Jette, 1 year old, for a lovely group portrait that ended up printed on a large canvas as the perfect gift for Dad. These girly girls were incredibly sweet: an adorable mix of shy, bubbly, poised, silly... I could go on and on. We wanted these images to be both personal heirlooms for the family and images that could serve as portfolio images/head shots for talent work. With this in mind, combined with Mom's personal style being more on the chic, classic side, I decided to shoot this in a really clean way, reminiscent of a late 90s designer denim advertisement. (I wardrobed them in shades of denim and white to stick with this vibe.) I knew that with their porcelain skin and light blonde hair, they'd just POP so gorgeously on a black backdrop, and I desaturated the images a good bit in post to make them look even more angelic and dewy. I really hope that I get to work with these girls again if they're ever back in the city - this session was just so dreamy and this family is so lovely!

Winning Smiles // Pittsburgh Children's Photographer

Have you ever met someone in the course of your life that seemed to just immediately... "get you?" I absolutely had that serendipitous sensation the moment that I first met Dr. Erin Issac.

Dr. Erin is a pediatric dentist with a gorgeous office in Shadyside called Winning Smiles Pediatric Dental Care. After connecting on Instagram, we had a coffee date where we spent the whole time chatting about our philosophies and approaches to working with children, which turned out to be incredibly similar: focus on creating a positive space and a luxurious, personalized experience for children in a situation they might not normally see in that light, and it will lead to much better results and much happier kiddos. Dr. Erin approaches dentistry for little ones in a manner that makes me wish that she could have been my dentist growing up. She has an incredible waiting room complete with a two-story playroom designed to look like a ship, abundant toys for amusement, complimentary WiFi, and a tea/coffee beverage station for the "big kids." Treatment is done in private rooms that have television screens mounted to the ceiling, so your littles can watch their favorite movies or cartoons while Dr. Erin is doing her thing. The only thing that the space is in need of is some beautiful wall art, and since I love a good blank canvas, I knew that this is where I could help out!

A few months ago, we got together at the studio, and I photographed our first set of kiddos with adorable, "winning smiles," as well as a new head shot for Dr. Erin. We'll be getting together to do another round of these in the coming months, and once everything is completed, these are going to be printed as large, sleek, modern acrylic prints and hung in the waiting room and exam area. (I'll be sure to share some photos of the space once everything is finished and hung!) In the wintertime, I'm going to be revamping the POSE PGH print and product line, and I'm most excited to include more acrylic prints and options. The acrylic block portraits I currently have available have been so popular, so I know that you're just going to LOVE the gorgeous acrylic wall art that I've been having samples created of behind the scenes.

A HUUUUGE "thank you" to the kiddos who modeled for us and their amazing mamas: Bella + Sylvia, Charlie + Whitney, and Davina + Colson!

Here is the first round of images that we created. I'm looking so forward to the rest!

Good Vibrations // Pittsburgh Children's Photographer

Sooo much to celebrate this month! This summer has been fabulous! Two of my little POSErs are absolutely killin' it, and I am one proud, proud photographer.

Tori is one of my favorite kiddos to work with, and she inspires me like no other. Images from her most recent Comp Card Session were just featured in two magazines: Fashion Kids Magazine (July Top 50 Most Beautiful) and Child, Tween, and Teen Magazine! Even more exciting: we landed the back cover of the latter! Goals, goals, goals - front cover, we're comin' for you!

**SNAPS FOR TORI**

As if that didn't make this past month awesome enough, I heard more good news! Miss Gabby entered our model call for The Picket Fence S/S 2018 Lookbook, and I was SO happy that we chose her. She did a phenomenal job, I loved photographing her, and I can't wait to do it again. Submitting the images that we shot together for the lookbook, Gabby was just signed to MMG!!! Slay, baby girl, slay!

Morgan is the Sweetest! // Pittsburgh Children's Photographer

The old nursery rhyme that girls are made of "sugar, spice, and everything nice" was most definitely written about Morgan. This little one holds such a special place in our hearts after her session. She is so genuinely sweet and effervescent and we loved spending time with her!

Morgan is your average little girl in many ways: she loves singing, dancing, and princesses. And, don't get her started on Sidney Crosby! However, Morgan is unique and special in many, many more. She has an incredibly creative imagination and warm, pure soul. (She told Miss Lisa and I that we were her new girlfriends and that we would all go on a friend date to Target together soon - I just might hold her to that!) Morgan is also an incredibly strong girl. She was born with developmental delays and overcame everything to become a charming, independent, gorgeous young lady. She even has a yearly lemonade stand to help raise money for The Early Learning Institute and give back - what a HUGE heart this kiddo has!

I wanted Morgan's images to be very soft and pretty, creating a "princess vibe" through wardrobe, color palette, and retouching without being overly literal. I wanted her to feel and to look like a million bucks, and a fan blowing that lovely long, blonde hair around was the perfect addition. As you can see from the images, we had a day full of laughter and smiles, and looking at them takes me right back. I didn't realize when I selected that cupcake shirt from her wardrobe that it would be quite so fitting to her personality and the day we had together. Morgan is, undoubtedly, the sweetest.

Three words to describe the session: Cute, Whimsical, Pretty

(All of my portrait clients choose three words from a list of how they'd like to describe their finished images. You can click on any of the three words at the bottom of this post by the little tag icon to see past sessions that chose the same word. You can also see how different combinations of words leads to the creation of different images.)

Tori's 2018 Comp Card // Pittsburgh Children's Photographer

When your little one is represented by an agency, they'll need to have their comp card/portfolio updated about every 6 months. Kids grow and change SO quickly (too quickly, I know)! Tori, now 7 years old, was due for a refresh, and I was super excited to have her in the studio again.

All children are different. With some, I'll carefully choose their poses and carefully tweak each little finger until it's in the right spot, and that makes them feel more comfortable and confident. Some kiddos are more free-spirited and I just let them do their own thing and am along for the ride, snapping away. And then there are some, like Tori, where it's a true collaboration: half of the time spent doing "Miss Lexi's poses" and the other half spent letting the kiddo make their own magic with them somehow nailing the most genius, adorable, I-never-would-have-thought-of-that poses. So, I won't say that I love photographing Tori (though, I most certainly do). I will say that I love COLLABORATING with Tori.

Now that she's a bit older, I knew that we could do some more dramatic, controlled lighting and aim for a more "fashion-y," mature vibe. Since we were creating a new comp card, I wanted to ensure that we had a good variety in wardrobe and mood. (Some casual, some dressy, some fierce, some pretty, etc.) When styling the session, Mom wanted to incorporate the gorgeous red dress that Tori had worn to a father-daughter dance earlier in the year and I was living for it. I also have to give Mom huge props for always trusting the zany wheels that turn in my head, even when I'm saying things like, "This coat, but backwards!" and "Yes, the oversized, fuzzy blue onesie!"

This is one of my favorite sessions that I've photographed to date. While I really do love photographing sessions that are light and fun, I have to admit that I'm more and more drawn to this moody aesthetic and hope to create more of it moving forward. There is just something so beautiful in the juxtaposition of the angelic innocence of children and a more mature, editorial perspective/style.

This is how Tori's finished comp cards look. Again, we aimed to strike that important balance: a warm, smiley head shot, a moody image, a softer, pretty image, a casual streetwear image, and a luxe, elegant gown.

Mom ended up having some wall art created from the session, as well, and the prints were super gorgeous. We did these ones as two 12x24" triptychs on luster paper. Tori claimed pretty much every print for her bedroom, so maybe with some negotiation, Mom can hang one of these elsewhere in her home. Haha. Looking forward to seeing them framed!
