Family photos in Pittsburgh for your authentic moments

Motherhood and parenthood are chaotic — but in the middle of all that chaos are all the beautiful moments you’ll want to hold onto forever. The real emotions and all the good stuff that makes your family uniquely your family.

It’s why I always say pictures aren’t just pictures. Photography makes those oh-so-special fleeting moments feel like forever. 

When I look back at my own family photos, I can hear the laughter. I remember how I could cradle them in my arms. I feel our love.

So, even as time moves forward and the little ones grow, you can revisit these moments, so they’ll never be forgotten with time.

The secret? Photography.

Psssttt. Did you know time travel is possible?

Photography for families who find the beauty in the chaos

maternity, newborn & family photos for Pittsburgh families

Raising kiddos is kind of blurry — from feedings to diaper changes to runs to the potty to, “Did you brush your teeth today?” Now I'll be able to look back on this crazy time and remember my babies and what life was like in our home in Pittsburgh years down the road and many moves later.

Melissa, you went above and beyond any expectation and now we have these beautiful moments to keep forever!

“I can’t even begin to tell you how much these photos mean to me!”

My Signature Photography Services

authentic, natural family photos in pittsburgh



We’ll capture all the sweet kisses from mama, big smiles from big brother and sister as they meet the newest family member, tiny baby feet in dad’s hands, the nurses’ names on the dry-erase boards with all the birth details, hospital wristbands… These are the little details that you’ll want to keep in your memories.

Before heading home with your little one, soak up some quiet moments with your sweet new baby!

That tiny bundle? That’s the heart of your world. So we’ll make sure to capture your new addition to the family in the most natural environment possible — because it’s about cherishing the now. Where nothing else matters but your baby, and your brand new (or growing!) family!

The newborn stage is fleeting. My goal is to preserve this precious life stage forever!




With emotions amped up on pregnancy hormones, it's been a rollercoaster of excitement, anticipation, and fear of the unknown. The only constant? The love you feel for the little life you're about to meet!

The marvel of what a woman's body can do deserves a celebration. Whether this is your first or fifth, let's capture this moment and get excited for what lies ahead!

Life is on the brink of a beautiful change.




I want to capture those genuine moments between you and your family — when the world fades away, and your entire focus lands right where it matters most. So wrap up those precious little humans you love so much in your arms and let’s have some fun while they run the show (with a little help from me)!

Laser-focused on the good stuff.




Whether it's cousins, aunts, uncles, or grandparents, extended family sessions are all about capturing imperfectly perfect photos with all your loved ones. Sure, it might get crazy — but that’s the best part.

Frequently Asked Questions

family photos in pittsburgh for your authentic moments

A $200 non-refundable retainer is required to hold a date on my calendar. But don’t worry — it’ll also be applied to the total invoice balance!

I release my calendar to my mailing list two times a year. The first time I release my calendar is mid-December for January to July dates. The second time is mid-April for August to December dates. 

I book a limited number of sessions each month to ensure I can be as flexible as possible (life happens!) and give my families the attention they deserve. I book on a first-come-first-serve basis, so it’s never too early to secure your session date!

Dates not selected when I release my availability to my mailing list are up for grabs! When you reach out about a session, I’ll share a scheduler along with more information about the session.

Due dates hold time on my calendar until Baby arrives. Within 24 hours of delivery, please reach out so I can share my newborn session scheduler. From there, you can conveniently book whenever your new family feels ready!

Yes! I offer mini-session dates throughout the year to those on my mailing list.
It is $450 for a 20-minute session and 15 images with the option to upgrade to the full gallery!

Absolutely! This is a huge stressor for most parents, so I like to step in to help. I’ll provide you with a shoppable, interactive style and wardrobe guide!

I typically deliver fully edited galleries within 2 weeks of your session date. You’ll receive a gallery with a custom shop. It keeps things streamlined and simple — because you’re already a super busy parent!

On average, I deliver 50-100 images in final galleries. That includes select black and white images.

I’m so excited to meet you and your family! The first step is to reach out. After booking is complete, I’ll email you my session scheduler. From there, you can select a date and time that works for you and your family! 

My mailing lists always get first dibs on my availability and offers. They receive updates and announcements before the rest of the world!

Let's keep in touch!

It's my kind of vibe. If it’s yours too, I'd love to be the one capturing your family memories.
