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 Newborn Photographer | Baby Kat

Baby Kat has the brightest, prettiest blue eyes!  She was alert and calm for much of our time together and let me get these gorgeous photos of her sweet face near a window while she was still awake. She put her little hand under her chin all by herself, obviously camera ready.  We even got […]

Pittsburgh Newborn Photographer | Lifestyle Session | T Family

“Little Boy Blue” is a popular nursery rhyme that dates back to the sixteenth century, and the actual lyrics might even be older than that.  But, until the nineteenth century, all infants were photographed in white.  Now, this may surprise you (as it did me):  In 1918, the Ladies Home Journal wrote, “The generally accepted […]

Pittsburgh Lifestyle Newborn Photographer | Baby Adelaide | Woodland Nursery

Welcome Baby Adelaide!.  She was very calm and sleepy in these images because we shot this session when she was only six days old. Fabrics, shadows, unexpected pops of color.  Contrasting textures—the family dog Maeby’s coat against Adelaide’s exquisitely smooth newborn skin.  Vivid against neutral.  Personal family touches. These are the elements that go into […]

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 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 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 Newborn Photographer | Baby Imran

Welcome to baby Imran and congratulations to his overjoyed family!  We shot this lifestyle newborn photography session at the family home in Fox Chapel (Pittsburgh). You know I LOVE a newborn baby and a pet!  Bentley the cat was happy to oblige me. 🙂 This little guy had not one but two grandmas in town (on […]
