Naima + Ramone | Intimate Maternity Session

I met up with Naima and Ramone a little while ago for an intimate maternity session and while we did quite a bit of posing, we snuck in some cuddles in there too. These high school sweethearts are welcoming baby number 5 into the world and you can feel their excitement when they talk about their new little one coming earth side. I'm so happy for you both, thank you for spending the afternoon with me!




Sabrina + Banu | Phipps Conservatory Anniversary Session

There is something so sweet about being able to dress up all over again and reminisce about your wedding day for your anniversary, it makes my sappy romantic heart turn to mush. Sabrina and Banu were married last year in Virginia and wanted to do something special for their first anniversary and unseasonably warm weather gave us the most beautiful day to shoot outside of Phipps Conservatory and the Carnegie Museum. These two have the most light-hearted sense of humor and the sweetest of loves.

Sabrina and Banu, thanks so much for letting me take your portraits again, I hope you have so many amazing adventures together in your new home of Chicago! 



Kathryn + Arianne | Edgewood Country Club Proposal

Kathryn had been carefully planning her proposal to Arianne for months from Ohio disguising it as a trip to see Kathryn's family. She convinced Arianne that they had to leave early for a dinner at Edgewood Country Club because she had lost something on the green the day before. Once there, she got down on one knee to pop the question and Arianne said yes! Their entire session was full of excitement, laughter, warmth, and love. Kathrine and Arianne, thank you so much for having me and congratulations to you both!



Amy + Nate | Indiana Maternity Session

I had such an incredible time with Amy and Nate's session. We met at an old Christmas tree farm they purchased to build their future home on and it was perfect. While we were shooting, we had a beautiful scenic view, deer leaping across the property behind us, and the most breathtaking  golden hour I've ever seen. They were so much fun and have so much love, I have no doubt that these two will make amazing parents. Amy and Nate, thank you for such a lovely day together and congratulations on your new little baby boy! 



Katerina & Umut | Pittsburgh Elopement

In the sweetest little ceremony, Katerina and Umut said their vows in front of a few family and friends at Frick Park right above the same spot where Umut proposed. Meeting at a Tango event when they were in college, it was only appropriate that they did a Tango as their first dance together right after the ceremony. The one thing I can say about these two is that they have the sweetest kind of love and you could see it in every glance, every touch, and every playful joke they had for each other. Their elopement is one of my absolute favorites to date because they weren't afraid to get a little adventurous, to be a little silly, and to fully be themselves.

Katerina and Umut, I am so grateful that I was able to be a part of your day and I wish you many years of happiness together.

Lindsay & Shannon | Colony Cafe Proposal

I'm not sure that the cuteness of this proposal can be topped, EVER. Lindsay wanted a sweet and simple proposal for her partner, Shannon. Both of them being animal lovers, she decided to propose to her at one of their favorite places in Pittsburgh, Colony Cafe in the Strip. Surrounded by adoptable kitties, Lindsay asked Shannon to marry her through a book of photos, accompanied with a little story of their relationship, and of course, a "marry me?" finishing the story. It was everything they both could have hoped for.  Congratulations to you both, I can't wait for the wedding! xo

A big shout out to Sue and her staff at the cafe for providing wine, accessories for my disguise, and going out of their way to make sure this was the best proposal it could have been. You're the best! 

Brad & Elizabeth | Fallingwater Proposal

Brad had been planning his proposal to Elizabeth for a VERY long time and aside from the pouring down rain that was drenching us, everything went according to plan. Elizabeth is an architect and it has always been a dream to visit Fallingwater. Knowing this, Brad decided to conjure up a fake work related convention happening in Pittsburgh and she was going to tag along for fun. He flew their families up to be there with them and proposed to her at the iconic view. I can't think of a more perfect way to propose!

Harper | Pittsburgh Family Session

Carl & Alexis | Surprise Anniversary Session

In past posts, I have let the images speak for themselves but the back story of this session is so good, I have to tell you all about it. This is Carl and Alexis and it's their 25th wedding anniversary. Carl told me he was really excited to have a photographer because he had a really big surprise for his wife to celebrate their 25 years together. He went on to say that they don't have any wedding photographs of their day because the original photographer lost them. True story. So, Carl rented the Broderie Room at Phipps so he could recreate as much of their day as he could for Alexis. He had all of the details worked out. He played the same songs, ordered similar flowers and even bought the same Prantl's Almond cake they had on their wedding day. Not a dry eye around, I think Carl may have won at the Anniversary gift giving game for life.
