First Birthday and Family Portrait Session at Mellon Park | Real Pittsburgh Family

I am excited to introduce a really sweet family to you. I recently meet this family in Mellon Park for their daughter's first birthday portraits and their first professional family portraits. While it's no secret that I love photographing children and families, I have to say that Ia huge perk of being a photographer is having the opportunity to meet a new family at a photoshoot and get to know them a little during our time together and through our communication before and after the photo session! You can see highlights from their portrait session as well as read the interview. I hope you enjoy "meeting" this beautiful family as much as I did!

Our daughter is sweet, silly, curious.

She walks only if she holds on to a hand or wall for support. Baby girl walking with dad's help at Mellon Park | Laura Mares Photography | Pittsburgh Photographer

Our child's favorite books are Hop on Pop, I Love Cats, anything that has extra flaps to open or pages she can turn. Photo showing close family relationship at Mellon Park | Laura Mares Photography | Pittsburgh Photographer

Her favorite foods include cheese, bananas, avocados, yogurt and cheerios. She loves to eat. Baby girl looking at her IKEA toys at Mellon Park | Laura Mares Photography | Pittsburgh Photographer

We had a small cookout on our deck with her grandparents, aunt, uncle, and cousins. She at an entire PB&J flavored cupcake and loved it. She got a Fisher Price slide as a present - which she was scared of at first, but now loves! Baby girl showing dad a statue at Mellon Park | Laura Mares Photography | Pittsburgh Photographer

We brought her picnic basket and other toys from Ikea. Baby girl smiling while sitting on a quilt at Mellon Park | Laura Mares Photography | Pittsburgh Child Photographer
