Summer Photo Project | Pittsburgh Family Photographer

This year we want to document our family's summer vacation! We enjoy living each day to it's fullest. We love traveling, trying new foods and spending time together. Our goal is to photograph a highlight from each day. While most of our time is spent around Pittsburgh we jump at any opportunity to travel! This post includes photos from July.




Celebrating America's birthday with a parade, backyard picnic and fireworks.


My children set up a sidewalk cafe with fresh squeezed lemonade and homemade cupcakes.


Mustache fun!


While the "big kids" are singing with the VBS worship team, our youngest child enjoys having the toys to herself.


Today included summer reading fun at the library.


The girls decide on a watermelon inspired nail polish design.


My oldest child decided to get her ears pierced!


We started doing our back to school shopping in July because we can find everything we need in one store! We also beat the crowds and find everything on our list quickly.


Lunch at First Watch with our besties! We all enjoyed the great food and loved the modern rustic decor.


A couple days ago we sampled Starbucks s'moress bars and decided we should to try making them ourselves. We were surprised how easy and delicous they are!


Enjoying our short road trip to YM Camera in Boardman, Ohio. We exchanged old camera lenses for new GoPro accessories! While in Ohio we stopped by The Cafe Witternauer's for a delicious lunch!


Enjoying a boys night in.


Crepes on the porch.


Red Robin's for burgers and 


Paleo Pancakes and birthday presents for my birthday.

We love celebrating our birthdays with our German birthday ring, a souvenir from our trip last summer.
