Mother’s Day Sessions 2019 at Missy Timko Photography

We held Mother’s Day minis at the Ace Hotel in April of 2019 to celebrate mothers and capture the unique bond we have with our little ones. I am thrilled with how these sessions turned out and shed a tear while sorting and editing some of these special images! I am such a softie! I’ve […]

Pittsburgh Family Photographer | Loughridge Family

So many of my clients want to shoot their annual family portraits in the fall, but this session is going to make a strong case for a summer session!  Look at the beautiful, lush summer leaves and flowers!  Additionally, it’s warm for baby and the light is gorgeous.  Pro tip for summer sessions–bug spray!! We […]

Pittsburgh Family Photographer | Frenie Family

What happens when you photograph kids just being kids?  MAGIC, that’s what! Remember how family portraits used to be?  The family would be arranged on a couch, or maybe lined up by height.  We might put Mom and Dad in elegant chairs in the foreground (hands in lap, of course), kids standing behind with their […]

Pittsburgh Family Photographer | Outdoor Family Portraits | Ferriolo Family

I have two brothers–one 21 months older, and one three years younger.  Yes, I am the middle child and the only girl.  Being the only girl was fun, but I always though it would be fun to be either the oldest—you get to do everything first—or the adorable baby of the family!  However, everyone knows […]

Pittsburgh Maternity Photographer | B Family Maternity Session

I shot this session last month when it was a nice warm day but the leaves hadn’t quite appeared on the trees yet.  This made it feel extra important to me to shoot this session when the lighting would be soft and lovely, which of course means golden hour! Hard to believe but this mama […]

Pittsburgh Maternity Photographer | Laura G. Maternity Session

Laura called me about a Pittsburgh maternity photography session, and said she felt great being pregnant and wanted to capture the energy of the Brookline neighborhood where she lives.  We got the MOST PERFECT WEATHER on this day–around 70, clear, so lovely.  Right now (as I am writing this), it’s 20 degrees and snowing, just […]

November 2016 Family Mini Sessions | Pittsburgh Family Photographer

Thank you to all the beautiful families who did family portrait sessions at my “city mini” date in November!  It was 70 degrees, so gorgeous and I am so lucky!  What a perfect way to close out the fall portrait season.  Thanks for an amazing 2016 and I have so much in store for you […]

October 2016 Mini Sessions at Powder Blue Photography | Pittsburgh Family Photographer

Fall is the best time of the year for a Pittsburgh family photographer!  I reconnect with some of my favorite people and get so much gorgeous family portrait work done in such a small period of time! We lucked out (for the 4th year in a row) with amazing weather–60-70 (!!) degrees and sunny both days.  The […]

Westinghouse Memorial Pittsburgh, PA | N Family

The fall portrait season is winding down and cards are set to start arriving next week; I can’t believe it’s already almost December!!  I have many fun events coming up, including TWO SPOTS for Saturday’s studio minis and a holiday event at Hatch Art Studio next week for Point Breeze Light Up Night.  Make sure […]

Helena | Fox Chapel High School Class of 2017 | Canon Dual Pixel RAW

We shot gorgeous Helena’s session at Hartwood Mansion in the area between Fox Chapel and Allison Park.  This is an absolutely stunning location, LOVED it.  The bookish/historic background reminds me of Hogwarts!  The downside is that there are other families there doing portraits there too, but I don’t mind that too much. So along with […]
