North Hills Sisters Session around Pittsburgh’s Cultural District

I’ve mentioned how fun these tween/teen sessions are to do.  Well, I now have evidence!

Last year, this tween’s mom contacted me because she new her daughter would love an experience like this.  She was right.  Her Boho session in a local park was so much fun and she loved her images.  Big sister wanted to participate too but in true teenage fashion, she couldn’t quite make the early morning session time that we set.

As you can imagine, I was excited and surprised to hear from mom last month.  She contacted me saying that both girls wanted to have a teen session this year!

And It was such a great session and so different from last year!  This year the girls decided that they wanted to plan a urban teen shoot.  They wanted a city location and they decided to have one of their outfits be their volleyball uniforms!  With such different images, I decided to break up their blog posts into 2 parts- the city session and then their volleyball session.

Session Details-Teen/Tween Session

  • Session Type: Teen/Tween Sisters
  • Subject: Tween girl, Teenage Sister
  • Location: Downtown Pittsburgh, Cultural District

What I love about these sessions is seeing the confidence just come through as my clients get more comfortable with the camera!  Just a few glimpses at what I’m capturing on the back of my camera can give a huge boost to confidence and transform the session.
