Make Carnegie Museum of Art the backdrop for your seasonal photo! Gather friends, family, loved ones, or yourself for a portrait taken by a professional photographer from the region.

This year, we’re partnering with a talented lineup of Pittsburgh-area photographers including:
- Cameron Brown
- Beth Kukucka
- Heather Mull
- Porter Loves
Twenty minute photo sessions will take place on Saturdays and Sundays from November 5 through December 4 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
There is a maximum of six participants per session. If you would like to have more than six people in your photos, please sign up for two consecutive sessions to ensure there is enough time allotted. Five high-resolution digital photographs from your photo session will be provided by the photographer following your session for your exclusive use and printing.

Meet the Photographers:
Cameron Brown is a documentary photographer who focuses on the subtle nuances and easily forgotten moments of everyday life. Adopting the "fly-on-the-wall" approach from great street and documentary photographers, his ethos is not to bruise or disrupt the scene. Cameron holds a BA in Mass Media Communication, with a focus in advertising from Carlow University. However, his photographic journey began in late 2017 as creative therapy after the passing of his mother.
Beth Kukucka has been a passionate wedding and portrait photographer for over 15 years. She has been published in publications including Time Magazine and Rolling Stone. She has photographed over 500 weddings.
Heather Mull was the staff photographer for Pittsburgh City Paper from 1999 to 2016 and was a founding contributor to Table Magazine. She loves people and is a seasoned portraitist who sincerely engages in the process of getting to know her subjects, finding out what motivates them, and working with them to express their internal spirit outwardly through their image.
Nathan J Shaulis is the photographer behind the team that makes up Porter Loves. He fell in love with photography the very first moment his father laid a manual film camera in his 12-year-old hands. He studied and practiced for years, learning every aspect of each successive tool by taking photos of anything and everything. Porter Loves celebrates nine years in business in 2021, but Nathan has taken photographs for over 30 years. He has a unique talent for making folks feel comfortable in front of his camera.
