Winter Mini Sessions in Pittsburgh | North Hills Family Reunion photos

professional family photos north of pittsburghDid you know that you can have mini session prices during the winter, on a weekday of your choosing?

Typically I offer pre-set mini session dates in the spring, summer and fall here in Pittsburgh… these are pre-established shooting dates at pre-determined locations, for which people can sign up for individual time slots. (Learn more about upcoming offerings here.)

But in the winter… well… all bets are off! I have decided to offer my mini session rates to clients who choose to book their family session on a weekday during the Pittsburgh winter. This means from January through to the end of March, you can book a mini session on a weekday and time of your choosing!

(Minis include 20 minutes of shooting time, along with 5 digital files with print rights.)

It was a breezy day with off and on light rain, but we powered through and ended up with a perfect break in the weather!

There aren’t a lot of outdoor shooting locations near McCandless (other than North Park, of course!), but this one ended up working out perfectly for our needs. There was a tree-lined dirt path where we set up for our pictures.

I am expecting to have mini session dates scheduled in the spring, summer, and fall.

But for some, winter is where it’s at! For a session like this family’s, reach out for more information!
