I'm Dreaming of a White Picket : The Picket Fence Holiday 2017 Lookbook // Pittsburgh Children's Photographer

The past few months have FLOWN BY, and in the process I fell behind on blogging. (Oops!) I hope that all of you had a wonderful autumn and Thanksgiving with your loved ones!!! I'm looking very forward to catching up and sharing everything that I've been working on with you!

As always, it was an honor to collaborate with The Picket Fence on their seasonal lookbook! We switched things up a bit this time around and focused on the upcoming season with a holiday lookbook, full of sparkles and candy canes and adorably tiny ensembles that are perfect for special occasions. Huge hugs and gratitude to everyone that collaborated on this with us, both in front of the camera and behind the scenes!

If you want to shop any of these looks for your own littles, head over to The Picket Fence's website and search for "LOOKBOOK."

And now, appropriate props given to:

Our precious models: Victoria Podheiser, Lorenzo Garrett, Olivia Keane, and Patti Szabo
Our fabulous makeup artist: Susan Staley

Landri Has a Heart of Gold // Pittsburgh Children's Photographer

There is so much that I could say about Landri. This adorable 4-year old is one of the sweetest kiddos that I've had the pleasure of working with. She is friendly, yet feisty. Spirited, yet dear. Affectionate, yet independent. I see such a strength of character in this little, little girl, and I can't wait to see her grow up into a strong, beautiful woman.

Landri was this year's winner of the annual #POSE4PICKET contest that I run in conjunction with The Picket Fence. She won a complimentary Editorial Session, three 8x10 prints, and a gorgeous Tea Collection outfit to wear during her session. (If you missed this year's contest - be sure to enter next year! It's SO MUCH fun!) I am so grateful that this contest enabled me to meet both her and her mother, as it was such a joy getting to know the both of them.

When planning Landri's session, I knew that I wanted to photograph it on black to emphasize her gorgeous blonde hair and porcelain skin. When I inquired as to Landri's favorite colors, I was told that they were "pink, purple, and golden." What a perfect color palette! I decided to select primarily pink and purple wardrobe and utilize different golden accents during the session (including a crown for the images in her Tea Collection outfit - she needed to be "crowned" the winner, after all!) There were also two other very important objects in Landri's world that I knew we could incorporate perfectly: her lovey/BFF "Baby" the elephant, and her preferred method of getting around on such tiny legs: her hot pink scooter.

Honestly, I could have photographed this little girl all day...

Three words to describe the session: Editorial, Fun, Stylized
