It is with a heavy heart that we say goodbye to the city of Pittsburgh this summer. We are so excited for this new adventure in our lives but we are leaving a little piece of us behind. Pittsburgh has been a wonderful city to us. We have build beautiful friendships that I know will last a lifetime and created so many important memories in this amazing city. I wish I could pack all my friends and favorite spots here but I know I don’t need to because they are all coming with me, in my heart. I know my husband feels the same way, he moved here first starting a home and after we got engaged and married it became my home too. We started a new life together here and it has been an amazing 10 years.
Pittsburgh will always be our first home. It is the place were I fell in love with photography and started my photography business. I’ve learned so much from this city and from the amazing individuals that are part of my photography growth. So many thanks, words cannot express my gratitude – Alisa and Tristan Milnthorp, Pamela Marie Anticole, Randi Voss, Christina Montemurro, Sandy Yetter (which by the way took the beautiful images of my family and me in this post) And to the photographers that I had the pleasure to work with – Dana Scheller, Heather Sattler Martin, Tracy D. Smith, Melanie Grady, Dmitriy Babichenko, Manny Nguyen, Susan Stefko, Marnie Snyder, Krystal Tirado, Jenny Karlsson, David Frye, Kevin Jennings, Gene Fetty, Becky Shock, Nicolette Dixon, Elizabeth Gregg. To all of my friend photogs, thank you as well.
This city presents so many things….
– First and most important, it is where Karina, my beautiful baby, was born. We bought our first home as a married couple here, I started my photography business, photographed my first wedding, Mona (our 10 y/old dog) was born here in Pittsburgh as well, I became a U.S resident, I met really good friends in the industry and outside of it. So many other important things but it would take me forever to name them.
To my incredible clients. All the families and couples that have supported my photography business and kept coming back for more KFP. To all those couples that always keep me in mind for referrals and to the people that always have beautiful things to say about my work – A BIG THANK YOU!
To our friends in Austin, that have been so supportive and have been looking, researching and advising us about the best schools, neighborhoods and their excitement for us to arrive – THANK YOU! We cannot wait!
But most of all, to my best friend, my rock to lean-on, the person that always encourages me and supports me no matter what decisions I make, to my husband Luis – Thank you! I cannot wait to start this new chapter in our lives. It is scary and exciting all at the same time but with you by my side I know it will be AMAZING!
So Austin….get ready….because The Bons are coming!!!!!
