Hi, I'm Shannon DeFerrari a Pittsburgh based freelance photographer with seven years experience. Photography, to me, is so much more than taking a good photograph. It's turning ordinary moments into extraordinary ones. My photos embody the same universal feelings that run through each of us in our best (or even worst) moments- love, happiness, pride, success, grief, confidence, and new beginnings.

My finished product captures the magic and beauty of authenticity.

I strive to make my photographic experience one of inclusion, understanding and enjoyment.

I want to get to know my clients and their needs, and provide them with a comforting and safe space to freely be themselves, so that I can capture it. Whether that be a tired or grumpy child, a less than enthusiastic partner, someone who is camera shy or has unique needs that may often not get individualized attention in other forums; I am equipped and grateful for the opportunity to bring out the very best in each and every client, while surprisingly delivering an entertaining experience.  These moments of genuine expression bring so much light and love to my photographs that you get to enjoy for a lifetime.




                                                                  My Information

·   I shoot natural light sessions in the parks surrounding area in Pittsburgh.

·   I offer flexible scheduling but shoots are best the last hour &1/2  of sunlight. (summer this is at  6;45pm, winter 3.30pm)  when lighting is at its finest.     Let me know if you and your child prefer an earlier time!

I will have all pictures ready for viewing in five weeks or less after shoot date.
A typical session usually runs an hour.
