Pittsburgh Lifestyle Family Photographer

The days are long but the years are short...

It's easy to get caught up in the day to day of family life.  Between work, after school activities and just trying to keep your house in order, it feels easier to just wait until life slows down.

Don't wait to book your session!!

Life is always going to be busy and there will always be an excuse to hold off on family pictures but I promise that you will not regret making those memories with your family.

Family Sessions Simplified

What to Expect & What to Wear -  The prep and style guide will leave you feeling confident in not only knowing what to expect for your session but also in what to wear!

Location, Location, Location - Park, field or urban.  What is your vibe?  I have you covered with my location guide that provides over 15 different areas in the Pittsburgh region to choose from.

There's a Wild Card in Every Family - Worried that the kid's won't cooperate?  I  know the feeling!  For family photography sessions we focus on connection, we take breaks and when all else fails we talk about boogers.  Anything to get their attention and hopefully a smile!

It Won't Take Forever to See Your Images - My contract says two weeks for your gallery but I get as excited as you to see everything we captured that day!  In most cases you will have your gallery within a week!!
