Last weekend I was fortunate to be included in a fabulous Gender Reveal party.  Shaina has two amazing boys, and found out that evening that a girl will join the family!

I had the privilege of photographing Enzo’s baptism last weekend. What an honor to document such meaningful events for this family.

It was a delight to photograph Dominick’s baptism, just a year after his lovely parents’ wedding!

I recently had the privilege of meeting Talia and her family, and photographing her Bat Mitzvah.  I also had my first ride on the Gateway Clipper.  Fun!

Yesterday’s Nutcracker Brunch at the Fairmont Pittsburgh was amazing!  I hope it becomes a yearly tradition.  Here are a few of the fabulous treats:

This Sunday, November 28, the Fairmont Pittsburgh is hosting a holiday brunch with a special performance by dancers from the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre Company & School.  It is going to be a family friendly brunch, and I will be there as well to photograph the event and the families that attend.  Click here for tickets, and hope to see you there!

On Saturday I photographed the Young Preservationists Association of Pittsburgh’s (YPA) clean up of the grounds surrounding the National Opera House.  The Opera House is a local treasure in need of preservation and rehabilitation, and the Young Preservationists are working hard to make sure that happens.  I was inspired by the effort of 100 students and the promise of this building, and hope the event sparks further preservation.  Click here to learn more about the National Opera House and why it is worth saving.

The first group of volunteers holding up signs saying, “This Place Matters”:

The end of the clean-up is hopefully just the beginning of new life for the historic house:
