It’s a little before 6am and I am hiding from my kids hoping they will stay asleep a little longer so I can write this post. I have a cup of steaming hot coffee and a fluttering in my heart. I have discovered a new avenue of photography to travel down. Lifestyle Photography. Which is defined many ways and may mean different things to different photographers but for me it means this:

Creating art from everyday life.
Moments that tug at your heartstrings.
Real moments that tell a story.
Photos that you will look at long after the toys no longer litter the floors and the smudges are wiped from the windows, and you will get a lump in your throat because you remember this chapter of your life.

My heart jumps when I look through the photos from this recent lifestyle photography session. There is so much texture, color, emotion and REAL. there is so much real.

This family’s house was full of giggles, yummy homemade food and beautiful evidence of two little girls who are loved very much…..

We have been so blessed with many many families coming through our doors this spring!! Our natural light studio lends itself well to “lifestyle meets studio” portraiture. We understand that most people want the classic “looking and smiling” photo but we LOVE capturing the in between poses. The candid. The real giggle and real interaction.
Sara, our associate photographer, has been KILLING IT with her sessions. Knocking it right out of the park. Had to share some of her recent work!

I absolutely love taking photos of Mothers and children together! The connection is amazing.maternity photography in pittsburgh pa
I love the little looks, the snuggles, even the tears. It’s all part of the story!

For me every day in motherhood is different than the day before. Different celebrations, different struggles, but always love. Lots of love and in my house lots of giggles. Giggles are how we deal with the frustration.

It just takes a mention of stinky feet or making a silly face to diffuse an argument. I’m sure that will change as the kids get older. But I will cherish it for now!

It’s so important to get photos of you and your kids together. For them and you. It makes the kids feel so special and important to be in the photo with mommy. And for you Mom, when you look back at them in a few years, you will forget all of the loads of laundry and couches full of crumbs, and just remember the snuggles and little feet, little faces, little arms around your neck.

We have two days for mommy and me sessions this year- april 22nd and 23rd! call or email Tricia today to book! 412-965-9674 tricia@vivaportraitstudio.com
