The Best Pittsburgh locations for spring portraits
Some years it seems that spring takes a little bit longer to arrive in Pittsburgh than other years. This seems to be one of them. Snowflakes flying on May 9th?!? No thank you. But even with that little unexpected cold snap: spring weather, warmer temps, and sunshine will be here to stay for the next few months. With the warm temps and being cooped up inside for months, it’s the perfect time to plan for family portraits but where are the best places?
There are some truly beautiful Pittsburgh locations for family portraits. Whether they’re for whole families, just the kids, or senior portraits, it’s easy to find a gorgeous backdrop for your next session. Not only does Pittsburgh have beautiful urban spots around town but it also has some really gorgeous parks both right in town or within a short drive. When planning a portrait session, you’re going to want to consider a number of things as you decide on location but first, I always recommend my clients to look at pictures. That’s the best way to start narrowing down the perfect location for your session.
I’ll be sharing a variety of sessions and locations in this post. Some are seniors, some are families. For the most part, all of the location options can work for any type of session so keep that in mind.
