Introducing Pittsburgh Senior Portraits by Captivating Imagery
I love photographing high school seniors. There are no two seniors alike and it’s fun to see what happens when the focus is all on them. For some, it takes a little while to ease into the session before they let their personality shine through, and others are seem to soak up every minute of their time in the spotlight. My approach to senior portraits is unique in Pittsburgh. I’m not big on props or maintaining a large selection of backdrops. I like to keep it simple and focus on making the students comfortable so that their portraits really reveal their character. I enjoy getting to know the students over the course of their session and I don’t like tight time constraints. A 30-minute session would never work with my approach. In some cases, it takes that much time to really get comfortable in front of the camera. It’s more about the experience. Senior portraits are an important milestone in a student’s life and it should be an enjoyable experience.
Here’s a slide show of some of the students I’ve had the pleasure of photographing over the past year. They’re all so different and that is a beautiful thing.
Amy comes from a large family and sings on the praise team at church.
Natalie just graduated from boot camp and earned her wings in the Air Force.
David is a great singer and recently graduated from the Pittsburgh Creative and Performing Arts School.
Kathryn loves to write and just received a scholarship to study at the School of Communication at Point Park University.
Jordan loves photography, but he’s not sure yet if he wants to pursue it as a career.
Ashley loves fashion and wouldn’t mind it if she could work as a model someday. And she’s got a lot of talent too!
