So Much Personality

Last Saturday I finally got to photograph my beautiful stepdaughter, Lillie!! It was a bit cold and really windy, but that didn't stop us from taking over the little town of Mt. Lebanon! Thanks to Dad we found an awesome graffiti wall and an alley right around the corner :). Of course I'm a bit biased, but Lillie is such a natural in front the camera. We actually had to tell her to STOP posing. LoL. I can't believe after getting her braces off I didn't get more pictures with teeth! We're just going to have to go out again :). Here's just a few of my favorites...

I love urban sessions!!

who knew an alley could be so cool?

"It smells like leaves!"

I took Gracie to Mingo Creek park today, hoping to get some fall images of her. She didn't want anything to do with the camera...or me! She ran off ahead of me at one point, then ran back yelling "mommy! mommy! It smells like leaves!!" At that point it didn't matter to me what pictures I captured from the day. She came home with muddy shoes and jeans, sticks in her hair, and dirt under her nails. Now that's a good day :).

I love the light on this one, but I chopped off her hands. :(

Senior Pics

A few weeks ago (yes, I've been slow to blog. But, my excuses are valid!) I took senior pics of "Manny" in Mt. Lebanon. We went in a big circle around the churches utilizing all the beautiful architecture and scenery. Afterwards, they took me out to dinner at the Sesame Inn for some of Pittsburgh's best chinese food! Here's a few of my favorites...
