Fall Mini Session with the S Family at Hartwood Acres Mansion | Pittsburgh, PA

A sneak peek of a fun family photo session at the beautiful Hartwood Acres Mansion during the peak of the fall season in Pittsburgh, PA. All photos by Pittsburgh family photographer, Danielle Blewitt Photography.

Session Type: Mini Session
Location: Hartwood Acres Mansion

The fall season in Pittsburgh offers some spectacular, warm and rich colors which are perfect for family photos during this season. The tradeoff with the colors is the variable temps that can make planning outdoor activities like photos difficult. Mini sessions this past weekend were threatened by the cold, the wind and the rain. This didn’t deter any families from showing up and bringing a whole ton of cuteness to their sessions.

This sweet and family family of four (and a half with their dog) braved the cold to help create some beautiful memories. Big sis was a natural model and knew how to turn it on as soon as the camera started snapping. Her twirls and big smiles masked the chill perfectly. The little guy was a trooper through it all and ready to explore the beautiful grounds of the Hartwood Acres Mansion. I always joke with families that when all seems calm for photos, it’s time to start bringing the dog. While this pup was also a pro, I’d say she won the wildest award 🙂

I’m excited to share more from this sweet fall family photo session at the Hartwood Acres Mansion, but for now a few highlights to share…
