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 | 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 | Baby Jackson

Look at Dale (dog on the left) smiling!!  What a sweet pup!  Of course, I expected this from big sister Anna Rose’s newborn session a couple years ago.  Best dogs ever!! <3 Baby Jackson joined big sister Anna Rose for this session at their Pittsburgh home.  This little guy has the sweetest little face! Anna […]

Pittsburgh Newborn Photographer | Baby William

Baby William was born last month and joined big brother Avery for a newborn photography session at their family’s home in Point Breeze.  Something very special about this session is that it took place just a couple weeks before the family moved to a new home, so they will always have these memories of their […]

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 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 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 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 […]
