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 […]

Baby Pippa | Pittsburgh Newborn Photographer

This newborn session ranks high on my list of happiest memories! Jenny & Dan called me when Pippa had just come home from the NICU–she spent some time there after being born a couple months early at about 3 lbs.  Pippa was finally approaching her due date and had almost doubled in size since birth, […]

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 […]

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 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 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 […]

Pittsburgh Newborn Photographer | Baby Claire

Baby Claire is #2 for this family, whose newborn baby girl I photographed just a couple years ago! Claire’s family prefers a simple & clean portrait session for the newborn portraits, which is perfect for my uncluttered style.  We shot this session in my Pittsburgh photography studio. Big sister Quinn brought her bunny along, which […]

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 […]
