Pittsburgh Family Photography: The Rhoades!

Photographing children can be one of the most difficult jobs for a photographer because, unlike adults, children are always on the move and rarely want to slow down for photos.

However, photographing children can also be one of the most rewarding if you’re willing to PLAY with them and capture natural, fun moments. And that’s why last November, when my uncle was in town for a mini-photography workshop, I asked for volunteers for family photo shoots to so he could practice the art of holding a session while also running around the park, playing duck-duck-goose, riding on swings, etc.

We had such a wonderful response from friends who were willing to come out for photos, and I have three sessions that I haven’t posted yet because I was waiting for Christmas to be over (so I wouldn’t spoil any surprises). But, I am very excited to post them now!

Without further ado… the Rhoades! Up next, the Sawyers and Koerbers!

The Rhoades are some of our best friends in Pittsburgh, and when I sent an email asking for photo volunteers, Dave responded that Ali (his wife) was out of town and that he would love to surprise her with some photos of the boys! So, without further ado, the Rhoades boys!

    Christina Montemurro - Milla, these are lovely! If these were my kids I would be buying up a whole bunch of big canvases. And great job with the swinging pictures. It is hard to get a sharp swinging shot and you’ve nailed it!ReplyCancel
