The Magic Within Pittsburgh Shootout
I am so excited to share the first batch of photos I edited from The Magic Within Pittsburgh Shootout.
This was my first ever shootout that I hosted & I was honored to ask & have 2 of my close photog friends come & join me. Weeks of planning & running around all came together for one perfect evening of fun, laughter, networking, portfolio building & making new friends. ( I will leave out the part about the giant spider that thought my camera bag was his new home …)
20 guest attended our shootout. Lisa, Sarah & myself styled 3 main sets which then actually dove-tailed into about 3-4 other sets for about 7 different sets (if not maybe 1-2 more). We wanted to give everyone a little bit of everything that we love & show them that the magic is made within & you don’t need extravagant sets to make magic. The sets included a Toddler set ( boy & girl ), a pre-tween set (2 girls) & than the tween set which you see below.
We choose an Anna Triant Couture dress for our tween model to wear. Dazzled her hair in butterflies in colors that were pulled from her dress. Minimal make-up – a tad of blush , lipstick & mascara was enough for this beautiful Model. The only prop for this set was a moss cover chair that Sarah made from Moss sheet & hot glued it to the seat. A little tuck here & there & bam turn a drab chair into a fab chair. Great job Sarah!
I hope you enjoy the first preview of photos. Please feel free to comment <3
This was my first ever shootout – and I loved it! You guys did a great job of organizing everything, and the models were just sweet and PERFECT! Would highly recommend this to others – no matter your skill level in photography – you’ll benefit from this. I would love to have this kind of event to look forward to in the future – thanks again!
Thank you so much for such beautiful feedback ! That means so much !! !
This is the first shoot that I have ever attended. I have to say I was a little skeptical at first as to how a shoot out works but it sounded like fun. Not only was it fun it was amazing! Everyone was so nice to each other, You got to meet so many other photographers from as far away as Baltimore and Reading. The children were amazing. They did fantastic for 3 hours of posing and having pictures taken.
Most of my sessions are stylized sessions and this event gave me so many fresh ideas on things I can incorporate into my own sessions.I would definitely recommend this event to any photographer new or experienced to attend. It was a wonderful experience.
Thank you so much for that wonderful feedback. I am glad to hear you had such a positive first experience with you first shootout & that it was with us <3 We look forward to hosting another hopefully this fall . Thank you so much ! ! !
