Photography by Lyndsey
This session was a maternity session for a young couple expecting their first baby, a boy. It was shot in February. Generally February in Pittsburgh has terrible weather, gray skies, rain/snow, general drab. But for our session, the weather warmed up and we had gorgeous light and sun! The fact that I was able to capture sun flare in February absolutely astounded me. Our location was an old mansion that is located near a public park. The mansion is used for weddings and events, but the outdoor area is open to the public. I chose this location because I was inspired by the beautiful architecture it has as well as the contrast between soft and hard. Also, no matter what the season is, this mansion also has a variety of natural elements to incorporate. For one shot, I framed my couple using tree branches. My style is very soft and romantic and I really loved to see the softness of the expecting couple against the hard stone and distinct architecture and the winter-laden landscape. There is a variety of angles and lines to work with, which is creates a lot of dimension. The only prop we used was a baby blue pashmina. Since the couple knew they were having a boy, we wanted to incorporate blue into the photos. I try to keep my photography as clean as possible and only incorporate props that I feel really fit the session. The highlight of this session was the love of the couple and their beautiful baby boy on his way. I especially love doing maternity for first time couples because they are experiencing everything new and have no expectations. You can almost see a quiet anticipation on their faces.
As for me, I am a boutique photographer from Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. I shoot engagement, wedding, maternity, and newborn photography. My goal is to create beautiful artwork and memories for all of the client's memorable "firsts". My style can best be described as romantic and charming.
