Photographer Belle Vernon PA | Mingo Park family session

Most people are pretty good about getting family portraits done when their children are small. Watching them grow so very fast makes it a priority, because we know that we can’t put it off for too long or we’ll completely miss one of their adorable stages. It’s also pretty easy to convince little kids to cooperate, and every child is so un-self-conscious and playful that it is easy to get images that you love.

After they hit the teen and young adult phase, though, it gets a lot harder. They have pretty packed schedules, and they are pickier about clothing and about being photographed in general. Parents are just as bad if not worse – we aren’t as enthusiastic about our less-than-youthful selves, and we are pretty busy ourselves.

BUT…when you have a family that is as close as these guys…and a mom that values her children over everything else…and is just as delighted and enthralled with the people that her children are becoming as she was with their first steps…

Well, then you get images like these.



If you haven’t had your family photographed since your children were very small, then it is time to consider getting everyone together and making it happen! 

I make it fast and easy (and painless!)  for your teens or college students, by working with your family and your schedule to get beautiful portraits like these. I will photograph not just the usual family picture, but also the special relationships within – mother/daughter, brother/sister, husband/wife. Every detail, from “what to wear” to how to stand and pose will be taken care of! I specialize in natural, outdoor, non-studio family portraiture that captures the real beauty of your family.
