The girl behind the lens: Jessica Leigh Larson


Pittsburgh's Portrait Photographer

Hello! I am Jessica, a portrait and lifestyle photographer.  I grew up in Central Texas, and moved to Pittsburgh, PA over a decade ago.  I started out as a classically trained dancer, and now I use my creative energy for photography.  Taking portraits is a passion of mine; I love portrait photography. I thrive on being able to create images that show beauty, life, emotion and that make you want to immediately share with everyone you know! 


I shoot with a Nikon D600 camera, and use a variety of Nikkor lenses, but my favorite portrait lens is my Nikkor 70mm-200mm 2.8 zoom lens.  I shoot primarily portraits, including Senior pictures, High School Senior Portraits, individuals, dancers, and families. I shoot using the gorgeous glow of the sun and, I bring out speed lights and reflectors during a photo shoot as required to capture the right mood for each image.  


I am proud to say I am a published photographer my images have been printed Woman's World magazine and America's Horse magazine.  I have been awarded Rock the Shot's  honor of "TOP 5 PHOTO" during their monthly photo challenge with submissions from across the country, and my Senior portraits have been featured on Senior Style Guide's Instagram feed several times.  Additionaly,  I had the honor of photographing the cover of a powerful leadership book, "100 Yards of Success" by Dr. James V Earle.


Each uniquely crafted photo session is photographed on location, in Pittsburgh and surrounding areas.  I also occasionally shoot in Texas when I find myself headed back to my hometown where I grew up. I love portraits, capturing a moment, and the beauty of the human spirit.  As a portrait photographer it is important to me to take great care in capturing each person's story with love, laughter, and the click of my camera shutter.


I am an artist, wife, and mother of two. My family inspires me on a daily basis. 


I limit my schedule, so advance booking is recommended.  I thrive on providing my customers the highest level of customer service, it is important to me that my clients love and cherish the images I create for them for generations.
