out of the box, laid back, and fun family photography!
Voted one of the best family photographers in Pittsburgh, lifestyle newborn and family photographer Pamela Anticole captures families in their backyards or local parks, in comfortable, easy photography sessions that are focused on depicting REAL life.
Remember, pictures are meant to capture the story of who we are in that moment in time. Do YOUR kids line up with perfect smiles when you pull out the camera, time after time? Mine surely don’t.
The chaos is BEAUTIFUL. Embrace it- I do- and the session will be fun!
We’re looking for TRUTH here, not perfection. So no need to stiffen up for formal pictures. Let’s play a little!
stress-free pictures?? i’m in!
With every Real Life session you book, you have the option for a lifestyle portrait add-on, too. Get dressed up and let me direct you a little bit- and have fun while we’re at it!
These portrait sessions are short (30 mins) because kids have a short attention span. (This is pretty much all they’ll give us before we reach meltdown or wild & crazy stages!)
Usually families choose to do these sessions in their backyard, but we can also head to a local park that your family loves to visit. The important thing is that everyone is comfortable and used to the location.
These lifestyle portrait sessions are paired with documentary Real Life sessions so that you get the best of both worlds- both unposed and photographer directed! Learn more via the contact form below- and I am happy to send over my client magazine with more details and rates.
ALSO… Periodically I offer mini sessions for families throughout the year. Make sure you’re on my VIP email list so you’re the first to know when these are released!
“If you want beautiful family photos that capture the personality of your family, then I highly recommend Pamela. Our family had fun during our mini session with her and it showed in our photos! No fake or forced smiles here and we never felt rushed or awkward. She took time beforehand to ask what my kids liked and what would make them feel more comfortable and then played music during our shoot, too! My son was grumpy at first, and somehow, in the end, we have amazing photos of him laughing and smiling. What makes Pamela so special, though, is that we also have photos of the rest of family trying to comfort him with sweet snuggles and quiet whispers of encouragement. She truly has an eye for capturing those special little moments and connections between people that could so easily go unnoticed. I’m so grateful that Pamela shares her talent and would recommend her to anyone!”
