As a Pittsburgh senior photographer I get the opportunity to meet a lot of seniors and photograph them around Pittsburgh. During this particual senior session, we had a great time exploring the North Shore. I was surprised when we talked that we have a lot in common. We both rowed on our school's crew team and went to Germany as part of a foreign exchange program for high school students. Technically, I studied near Vienna in Austria but visited Bavaria during the trip while she will go to Cologne this summer!

I was born in Philadelphia and moved to Pittsburgh when I was four.
