Location Scout: Hartwood Acres

June 14, 2011

About once every two weeks my wonderful boyfriend and I will venture off with a few rolls of film and our 35mm’s in hand to scout for fantastic future portrait spots. Although this was not our first time – last week we visited Hartwood Acres just off of Saxonburg Blvd in the Fox Chapel area of Pittsburgh. (Hartwood Acres is most known for it’s yearly Festival of Lights around Christmastime.)

This is one of my all time favorite spots for portraits, engagement shoots and everything in between. The landscaping is amazing and somehow the lighting always seems to be perfect. If you’re having trouble picking a spot for your portraits, take a look at Hartwood Acres.

Here are a few of my favorite shots from the evening.
