A Little About Me

So glad you stopped by!  I am a Pittsburgh-based lifestyle family photographer,  mama of two handsome little boys and the wife of an amazing husband.  I have always been drawn to photography but it wasn't until my oldest son was born that I started to take my interest more seriously.  It started with me taking a million pictures of his every waking moment and eventually evolved into me learning how to do those sleepy newborn poses!  Once my second little guy arrived, there was no denying the love I have for photographing the everyday milestones and I realized I had something to offer others: the ability to capture their life story.

 

What you will find with your session is that I love a posed picture but I love  the in-between moments that show the personality of a family even more!  We all know time passes too quickly and in a blink of an eye these babies are running off to explore the world for themselves.  As a lifestyle family photographer, I want to capture all the moments that make your family unique.  Sometimes that means very outgoing children that run up to say "hi" and others it is a child that takes a little longer to warm up.  Either way, there are memories hidden in there that I want to catch for you.  From the beauty of a maternity session, to the details of a newborn session, all the way through the very special first year pictures and all the moments after that show the bond that makes you a family. Let's have some fun taking pictures running through the park or while you are all cuddled up in your favorite part of the house.  Even the moments you think aren't worth capturing are the ones that make up your life story and the ones you will want to look back on and reminisce!
