Camera Club: Spring Family Session

Each month, Heather Lahtinen with Weddings by Heather and the Flourish Academy organizes a camera club meetup for local photographers throughout the Pittsburgh area.

May’s meeting welcomed one of the sweetest families to Heather’s gorgeous homestead for a mini family session. Magdalena and her two little ones, Grant and Natalia, are absolutely adorable! Grant will be three-years-old at the end of the year and Natalia turned one earlier this month.

Natalia just loves her mommy so much! Magdalena had a hard time stepping away from her throughout the session, but their connection lent to some heartwarming photos.

Heather’s property gets the most beautiful golden light during the evenings. I am obsessed with the warmth that filtered through the trees and added to the emotion of these images.

As if two little cuties weren’t enough, we also had another special guest at this month’s meeting: 10-month-old Paisley Jean! Her mom is Soozie with Photography by Soozie who you may remember from her maternity session last May. I snuck these shots of her as she explored rocks and footbridge near Heather’s pond.

Heather and Magdalena, thank you for putting together another fun camera club meeting!
