While I primarily photograph families at their homes, occasionally I photograph a family outdoors at a local park. In June, I had the chance to photograph Amy's family at Mellon Park in Pittsburgh, Pa. This park is somewhat of a hidden gem.
Mellon Park is one of Pittsburgh's best-known locations for outdoor portraits which can make scheduling the perfect time for your shoot a little tricky. Thankfully for Amy's outdoor session, we got lucky and were the only people in the park!
Mellon park is a beautiful location for family portraits or an engagement session if you are looking for a space that offers a lot of variety in backgrounds.
You can sit with your family on the stones steps.
Walk the sidewalk path lined with flowers and trees.
Stand in front of a beautiful iron gate.
