I’m having a contest!! Yay!! For what? Why for a free session of course! Here’s how it works.

I am in search of some wonderful new locations to do sessions. But I am only one person and can only find so many of these locations on my own. This is where you come in. Tell me where YOU think would be the BEST place to have a session. And if I think that YOUR location is truly the BEST location of all of the locations entered, then you win a free session in your chosen location!!

The not-s0-small print:

– I cannot have done a session in this location before. Obviously you aren’t going to know every single place I’ve ever used but if you submit something that I have then I’ll try to let you know so you can submit something else.

– It has to be someplace publicly accessible. Your mother’s back yard might be an awesome location but if it’s not okay for me to go there whenever I want, without notice, and with perfect strangers, then it won’t work out as a great location. Also trespassing is not ideal.

– If you win, your session must take place in this new location. And you have to schedule that session right away (although it can be scheduled a few months out if you prefer).

– The location must be within the 25 mile limit of zip code 15147.

That’s it!! So just leave a comment here or on my facebook page with your location idea and your e-mail address. The contest will be open for ONE week (closing July 4th) and I’ll be taking another week to review all of the submissions. Yay!!

  • Melanie Macek - Hi! In response to your contest for best location, I would have to say Mingo Creek Park in Finleyville would be wonderful! There are many unique covered bridges, a creek, wooded areas, and open fields. A truly picture perfect location!ReplyCancel

  • Danae Hoose - Mellon Park!ReplyCancel

  • Tam - I always thought the water steps on the riverfront would be a fun place for a portrait session involving toddlers! Also the fountain at Southside works.

    For fall I’d LOVE a session out at Soergel Orchards, they have such beautiful places to capture a family!ReplyCancel

  • Monica Shein - FRICK PARK- but near the bowling greens off Reynolds- across from FRICK Art museum
    There is a beautiful archway at the entrance to north FRICK park
    And there’s a lovely fallen tree
    Trunk that has been there for years- great for sitting on, standing on, or just playing peek-a-boo around.ReplyCancel

  • Diane Roach - The Mansion at Hartwood Acres. Great scenery with the mansion in the background, trees that split just right for a little one to sit in the crevice, rock wall to sit over, stone walkway, lots of benches…ReplyCancel

  • Ilyssa Ringold - Hi! Lake Elizabeth in the Northside (Allegheny Commons) is gorgeous…and Marc said there’s ‘good light’ there too (he’s decided he knows what he’s talking about). 🙂 And the surrounding streets have some cool architecture if you’re willing to venture out of the park. Thanks for having a contest! Fun, fun!ReplyCancel

  • Constanza - Trillium Trail/Zen Trail in Fox Chapel.ReplyCancel

  • Morgan D. - At South Side Works, there is a little park/gazebo area, and there is this black and white checkered “dance floor” in the middle. Perfect! We took our engagement photos there.ReplyCancel

  • Tammy - White Oak ParkReplyCancel

  • Kristin Garness - How about Emerald View Park on Mt. Washington…. you could defintely get some great shots with the city skyline in the background!

    Or inside the Museum of Natural History. I think that could be pretty cool on a weekday where it was not jam packed.ReplyCancel

  • Amy - Highland Park. There is the fountain, stone steps and walls, paths into wooded areas, a wooden play set and more modern plastic ones, a duck pound, the reservoir….so many spots for great photos!ReplyCancel

  • Jocelyn - I think North Park is an excellent location. The boathouse is stunning next to the lake and there are tons of unique spots to shoot.ReplyCancel

  • Christine Nguyen - Avonworth Park’s large wooden playground and the wide creek near it is not only fun for the kids but is also beautiful. I bet you can capture some fun faces while they’re playing.ReplyCancel
