Pittsburgh Portrait Locations – Frick Park in Point Breeze

Today I’m excited to write about Frick Park, it is another beautiful outdoor location for portraits in Pittsburgh. Isn’t truly an iconic Pittsburgh location? Situated in the heart of the Point Breeze, Frick Park is Pittsburgh’s largest historical regional park. Frick Park is a wonderful place to photograph seniors, families and children. The park is large and offers plenty of space for seniors/families to move around. I love the beautiful lines in the architecture and as well as the landscaping. Frick Park offers many highlights for a portrait location: It is conveniently located, easily accessible and presents a large variety of background for your portraits.

For this particular session we parked near The Frick Museum and walked to the picturesque stone arch at the park entrance. After capturing a few family portraits near the entrance, we continued to walk toward the open shaded field and wooded paths. Since I aim to capture a variety of images for my clients, I love that Frick features natural, rustic and architectural backdrops.

1. The Entrance

The entrance to Frick Park features a concrete bench, stone wall and iconic arch.

3. Forest

If we continue along a pathway we can enter the forest. The trees provide a natural shade along the trail. The forest is a beautiful and peaceful escape from city life.
