Outdoor Sunset Newborn Portrait Session | Pittsburgh Newborn Photographer

Recently, I had the opportunity to attend the Flourish Academy's Camera Club. The Camera Club is open to photographers of all skill and experience levels from around Pittsburgh. It was a wonderful time of photographing a beautiful newborn baby girl and her loving mother while meeting other Pittsburgh photographers. Heather hosts the Camera Club on her gorgeous property. She is extremely knowledgable, welcoming and friendly.

When I first began my photography journey I felt isolated from other creative spirits. After I graduated from college, I didn't know of any organizations to meet like-minded, creative individuals, which is difficult when you enjoy working with others!

Today, Pittsburgh has become such a welcoming community for photographers, creatives and small business owners! In addition to the Camera Club, the local chapter of the Rising Tide Society, TuesdaysTogether - Pittsburgh PA is another organization for creative entrepreneurs to network, share ideas and learn from each other. The current movement is community over competition. Tuesdays Together occurs around the Pittsburgh area, often in different locations, the 2nd Tuesday of every month. It is free and open to all creative entrepreneurs from business coaches to graphic designers, and of course photographers too!

It's really fun to match a face to the names of people you've seen photos from on the web and Instagram.

Another perk about the camera club was having the opportunity to have my first experience photographing a newborn outside. I'd love to begin offering outdoor newborn sessions during the summer.

It was a new experience to see other photographers photographing the same subjects but from different angles and perspectives. It was such a unique and enjoyable opportunity to watch other photographers at work.
