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 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 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 […]

October 2016 Mini Sessions at Powder Blue Photography | Pittsburgh Family Photographer

Fall is the best time of the year for a Pittsburgh family photographer!  I reconnect with some of my favorite people and get so much gorgeous family portrait work done in such a small period of time! We lucked out (for the 4th year in a row) with amazing weather–60-70 (!!) degrees and sunny both days.  The […]

Newborn Baby Oliver

Welcome adorable baby Oliver!  This sweet baby boy was born in September and joins big sister Helena. I love this little guy’s nursery, the rug reminds me a lot of Baby Andrew‘s cute rug from a summer newborn photo session that I loved! You would be surprised at the best locations for family portraits in […]

Newborn Baby Andra | Lifestyle Newborn Session Pittsburgh

Baby Andra was born at the very end of August, just four days before the school cutoff!  Will she be the youngest kid in her class?  Yet to be seen!  Right now she is just focused on sleeping and eating mostly. This family lives right in my Mt. Lebanon neighborhood and I know mom from Mt. […]

Pittsburgh Family Photographer | My Alaskan Friends | Point State Park

As many of you know, I grew up in Southern California.  I got my bachelor’s degree in Northern California, then went to New York City for my master’s degree.  After that, I moved to Portland, Oregon (where I met my husband) and now I’m in Pittsburgh.  Whew, that’s a lot of moving around!  Almost everybody asks […]

Pittsburgh Family Photographer | Happy 1st Birthday, Beau!

Have a look at Baby Beau’s First Birthday shoot, part of the family’s Baby Plan.  These photographs were taken on July 22 in Upper St. Clair. Shooting was tough the first time!  A typical growing toddler, Beau wanted to “fly away” so badly, that it was next to impossible to get anything but a blur! (But […]
