We love doing Pittsburgh family portraits at Mellon Park! And that’s exactly what we got to do recently.
We met this family before when we were living in Chicago. Last winter one of my friends, Ty, from the seminary asked us if we could take their family photos. Not only them, but Ty told me their friends had just moved back from Australia and they wanted us to photograph them as well. We were overjoyed that they asked us and quickly accepted. But, on the day of the portrait session it was raining. So, since we couldn’t take pictures outside we set up some studio lights at Ty’s house and did everyones pictures inside.
When we got to Ty’s house it was crazy fun! We brought Nathan and Deborah, Ty has four children, and Meghan and Carl have a sweet little daughter. What a fun filled day. We quickly became friends with Meghan and Carl and caught some priceless moments between them and their baby. Carl told me they were only in Chicago for a few more weeks before they would be moving to Pittsburgh. We were bummed since we wanted to know them more. But, when we found out we were moving back to the Pittsburgh area we thought, “Who knows maybe we’ll get together there.”
Well sure enough, we stayed in contact with this great family. Meghan and Carl got a beautiful canvas printed of their daughter and a few months later asked Olivia if they could schedule a portrait session in Pittsburgh. Getting to work with an awesome family at a great location in a city we love, of course our answer was yes! It was hot at first, but once we got in the shade and got to “work” it was more like spending time with old friends. Meghan and Carl are awesome and we’re so glad we got to work with them again.
