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 Newborn Photographer | Family of 6 Lifestyle Session | Baby Romy

I was thrilled when my friend Tess called me up to schedule a newborn session.  First of all, she (at the time) was mom of three of the most adorable kids you can imagine, plus she is an artist and has a great sense of style.  She clearly had a vision for her shoot (lifestyle […]

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 […]

Leela’s 1st Birthday | Pittsburgh Baby Photographer | Shabby Chic Summer Backyard Party

As a baby and family photographer I am sometimes asked to photograph special milestone events in my clients’ lives, and every once in a while I am able to make this work with my busy portrait schedule!  I was thrilled to be able to photography baby Leela’s first birthday party in July!  It was thoughtfully […]

Pittsburgh Newborn Photographer | Lifestyle Session | H Family

Sisters who won’t let go of hands.  A family dog that won’t leave the baby’s side.  For a photographer like me, these are sure signs that you are entering a house full of love. Meet the H family. Even though this was a Newborn Session, big sister Sada practically stole the show!  Sada just couldn’t […]

Pittsburgh Newborn Photographer | Outdoor Newborn Portraits | Baby Aidan

Those of us who live in Pittsburgh need no convincing that Pittsburgh is glorious in May.  The city seems to alive after the always-too-long winter.  We all come out of hibernation in May.   The other thing that happens every May is–babies, babies, babies!  For me, the month of May is always full of requests […]

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 Newborn Photographer | Baby Palmer

Baby Palmer was a complete doll for our newborn session at his Peters Township home this spring.  We shot some of this session in the light, bright master bedroom and some of the images in the library for a moodier backdrop.  The first thing I do for any session is look around the home for […]

Pittsburgh Child Photographer | Lifestyle Family Session

I was happy to be shooting many lifestyle family portrait sessions this winter!  This is such a sweet and different type of portrait session than the outdoor fall family sessions that are so very popular with my clients. We shot this session on a gorgeous snowy day so the light was bouncing all around the room […]
