Pittsburgh Portrait Photographer : Laurie


Wrapped in tulle and a crochet blanket, she took shelter from the bitter cold between the branches of a tall Pine. We laughed, shared stories and even attempted to catch a loose dog – which we failed at, but luckily his owner found him shortly after.

It’s amazing how quickly you can connect with a person. It’s one of the many important lessons I’ve picked up as a photographer. During a simple shoot, you can learn so much about a person. If you make someone feel comfortable enough to open up to you, (because you genuinely care and enjoy their company,) there’s a good chance you’ll leave that session with a new friendship.
