It was such a wonderful experience to work with this family to build their photoshoot! We met way back in November to plan out our 2 part session- the first part took place in this family’s house and the second out in the snow! Mom and Dad wanted to capture their little loves in their home environment, in their pj’s playing and interacting together. They also wanted to capture some photos out in the snow since the kids LOVE playing outside with Mom and Dad. Scroll to the bottom to read a beautiful letter written about the kids by their parents.

Using information we gathered at our session kick off meeting we started with a pinterest board to gather the “look and feel” of the shoot!

Of course our session manager was on hand during the shoot to make sure everything went smoothly and was consistent with the plan! The goal is to help everyone to relax and have FUN;)

Here is a letter Mom and Dad wrote for their session….

Suzie was born in the winter and it was this bewildering, wonderful rush. We weren’t ready for any of it, not taking her home, not the awesome responsibility, not for how much she would completely change our lives. Some of it has gone by so quickly and so pictures have become this invaluable part of the process since we get to look back and see these tiny slices of our lives. The photos keep so many memories fresh, even for her. Suzie has always loved going through the pages of her photo books, pointing to everyone, and now naming them and describing the place they were taken.

Owen always seemed so small in contrast to his sister. His cries, his smiles, his arms around your neck were all remarkable because of how much younger he was than his sister. And yet now they are almost the same size. We were so prepared to love both of them, but neither of us had expected how much they were going to love eachother, how inseparable they would become. We love that we’ve been able to capture all of this, especially in the winter when they absolutely love to be outside, in the snow, singing refrains from Frozen.

These girls came to visit at one of the Pittsburgh photography studios we have been using for our indoor sessions this winter! They were so adorable! I have two girls of my own and I am looking forward to when the baby is old enough to interact with her older sister!

I got to meet these girls when the baby was a teeny eensy newborn! Check out her photo here http://www.patriciajune.com/newborn/newborn-princess/

So much has been going on behind the scenes at Patricia June Photography. We are crafting a new way to capture your precious memories. We want you as the parents to be able to ENJOY the photo session. To be involved as a co-creator. These are your memories to cherish. We want you to be able to watch them unfold.

When I met the parents to be from this maternity session I could just feel the joy radiating from them. They are so excited to meet their baby! It’s their first so it will be the beginning of a new journey in parenthood for them.

We asked Mom and Dad to write a letter to their baby that can be printed in a memory book for him to read when he grows up…

Precious Baby Boy,

God has blessed your father and I with the gift of your life. Knowing you are in the womb, every finger, every toe, nose, lips, eyes, bone, and hair is truly awesome and wonderful to ponder over. We are so excited for what is to come and for meeting you for the very first time. You are loved.

Love, your Dad and Mom

Part of our new process is taking more videos. Some of our new packages which are launching in January will include a video from your session! This is a video we did at a recent maternity photo shoot in the Cardello building on the North Side of Pittsburgh. Scroll below the video to see more of the photos that resulted from this session!
