Natasha K: Fall McConnell's Mill Senior Photos

Natasha’s senior session took place on a crisp October morning, just when the leaves began changing at McConnell’s Mill. One of the BEST things about scheduling a session in the morning is the fact that there are so few people (usually!), which helped us SO much at such a popular location like McConnell’s Mill - we basically had the park to ourselves!

Natasha is graduating in 2019 from Montour High School and has such a fun and carefree personality! She brought a hat to her senior session, which really helped pull her fall look together (even though she rarely wears hats!). It goes to show that sometimes going a little outside of your normal comfort zone in terms of style can be a great idea! If you’re looking for some more ideas on how to up your senior outfit game, (or really, any photo shoot outfit game!) feel free to check out this article I wrote a little while back!

Natasha, thank you for the honor of taking these photos - you are going to do incredible things! 💛

Mahika S: Hartwood Acres Senior Photos

It’s hard to believe that senior season is starting to slow down! I can hardly believe that November is already here - which means just about one month left of senior photos! But truly, fall is my favorite time of year for photos - I love the crisp air, the warm and earthy clothing color palettes, and the beautiful fall colors!

I have to say, though - Mahika might’ve had one of my favorite senior outfits of the entire year! Her red, black, and gold authentic Indian dress was the perfect choice against Hartwood’s neutral backdrop, and really gave the feeling of fall! I had her twirling her gorgeous skirt basically the entire time - and it was so worth it!

Mahika is involved in lots of extracurricular activities, including Speech and Debate, Future Business Leaders of America, Global Relations Club, SciGirls (a club she made that promotes science to girls), NHS, volunteer at Youth Seva (her local religious group) and Classical Indian Dancing (Kathak) for 12 years. And she’s totally not busy at all! 😉 But seriously - I admire this young woman for her dedication to excellence. It’s truly amazing!

Mahika, it was such an honor to take your senior photos - you are going to do amazing things! 💛

Brooklyn B: Mellon Park Senior Photos

Mellon Park is one of my favorite locations for photos - the light is always beautiful, and there’s a beautiful balance between architecture and natural scenery. It ended up being the perfect location for Brooklyn, who had the perfect outfits to match, and was a total natural in front of the camera! The only downside: I literally fell into a bush. I squatted down to take a photo - and just keeled over. Good thing Brooklyn was a good sport and laughed with me! ☺️ Thank you so much for the honor of taking your photos, Brooklyn! You are a rockstar, and I know you’re going to do incredible things!

Bainer S: Hartwood Acres Senior Photos

There are a couple of reasons I will never forget the day we took Bainer’s senior photos. Okay, maybe just one: PRINCESSES!

That’s probably not the first word you thought of when you saw the photo above this little caption, right? Well, believe it or not, the day of Bainer’s senior session at Hartwood Acres, there were TONS of people gathered at the Hartwood mansion for a photography workshop - and the subjects were little girls dressed up as princesses!

I wouldn’t be surprised if there were close to 100 people there, because they took almost every nook and cranny of the mansion up! And I do not mean that at ALL in a spiteful way - it looked like a great workshop! I just couldn’t get over the irony of this workshop happening on Bainer’s session day. But he was such a trooper, princesses and all!

As you might be able to tell, Bainer plays the guitar and loves music. Besides bringing his guitar to his session, he also brought his dog, “Fozzie,” who I kept calling “Fonzie” throughout the session 🙈

Congratulations on your last year, Bainer! It was such an honor to take these photos for you!

I had the pleasure of taking Caleb’s senior photos on his family’s property just a few weeks ago! Why go anywhere else for photos when you have the most picturesque scenery right in your backyard?! My favorite thing I learned about Caleb during our session is that he works for a pizza shop and gets to MAKE pizza for his job! Not sure why, but that’s something I have ALWAYS wanted to do!

Caleb, it was such an honor to take these photos for you! I hope you have a great rest of your senior year! ☺️

It’s been a while since I’ve had a session at North Park - but this nature-filled scenery was perfect for a nature-lover like Erin! One thing that really stuck out to me about this incredible senior is her desire to work in the nonprofit sector after graduation - I feel like that’s rare for a senior! On a trip out of the country with a friend’s family, she saw the stark contrast between the resort she was staying at, vs. how the locals were living, and it stirred her heart to do want to do something about it! Erin, I just know you’re going to do incredible things. You can do anything you set your mind and heart to! Congratulations on your senior year! 💛

Sarah is a senior swimmer at Seneca Valley (try saying that five times fast!) who was an absolute joy to photograph! Her outfit choices were totally on point, from more casual black and white t-shirt and jeans to her yellow floral sun dress, to her TWO floral maxis! Whenever in doubt, ALWAYS go with the floral maxi - those ended up being some of my favorite photos from her session!

Sarah, you are a wonderful human being and it was my pleasure to take these photos for you! Congratulations on your senior year!!

Logan is a Mars High School senior with a passion for reading (fiction, to be exact!) and a love for sports. What I love about the location we photographed Logan’s senior photos in is that it turned out to have tons of great little nooks for beautiful shots, lovely light, and was SUPER close to their home! (Perfect for a school night!) Never feel like you have to travel 45 to 60 minutes for a great location (although, there are some pretty great locations throughout the burgh!). You never know what’s just down the road!

Congratulations on your senior year, Logan, and thanks for the honor of taking these photos for you!
