Tommie is facing pediatric neuroblastoma and is headed to NYC this month for a surgery to remove a tumor in her abdomen. She will have these photos to think of her friends while she is away.

Tommie, I wish you the best and can’t wait for you to return to Pittsburgh!

Jack is 2! | Pittsburgh Child Photographer

I’m so excited to share the first images from my new studio in Point Breeze!  This is Jack, who spent his first year doing the Baby Plan with me so we are good buddies already!

We tried a little natural light shooting in the sitting room, where Jack showed off his 412 style in a tee from Commonwealth Press.

I thought that he looked pretty handsome in these black & white images!

Newborn Twins Michael & Madelyn

I shot this twin newborn session at my photography studio in Pittsburgh.  Michael & Madelyn’s mom & dad came to see me in January for a maternity session, their story is here.

Newborn photography is never simple and session can last as long as 2-3 hours just because babies have a lot of needs to be met!  During a longer session I am not actually shooting portraits for that whole time, it can just take  little longer when baby is fussy (normal!!).  With twins it can go either way!  Double the fussiness or double the sleep!  These two slept for a long stretch right at the beginning of our session, so I got all of these great portraits in a short period of time.

The bottom photo is my favorite because of how their toes are curling up around each other.  Twins!! Love!

Studio Newborn Portrait Session | Baby Jack

For Baby Jack’s newborn session we shot in my studio in Pittsburgh.  I like to create a lifestyle look even when shooting in my studio, so I created some soft and cozy spots of Jack to cuddle with mom & dad.

I like the natural style of these newborn images, with lots of brown, grey, white, and other neutral tones to create a timeless image.

For these high key white backdrop images, I shot the family with my largest soft box behind them.  Baby Jack’s smile in the last image is just one of many I captured during this session!

Though I generally prefer color, studio images look great in black & white as well.

This is my favorite grey seamless backdrop–I have been using this same savage grey tone for years, and I change it up, lighter & darker, with my lights.  I think the lighter neutrals & lovely textures on mom & dad look great.

This little lady is the tiniest human I’ve ever heard speak in complete sentences… no, make that paragraphs!!  We shot this session partially inside the studio and partially outside so that little miss wouldn’t get too cold with the early spring temps.
