Newborn Interview – Pittsburgh Newborn Photographer

At my newborn studio sessions, you can expect to have a fun and relaxed experience. When you enter my peaceful, little greenhouse home studio, you'll hear music streaming, smell lavender diffusing, and you are welcome to sip a cappuccino. We will focus on capturing beautiful portraits of your newborn baby, and we'll also have plenty of time to get to know each other! At a recent newborn session, I had the chance to meet this super sweet couple. I loved hearing how they met! Although they lived only a couple minutes from each other, they said they never would have met if they hadn't been matched online. Since the first advertisement I heard for match.com, I've been so curious if my husband and I would have been matched! Once, I even tried to talk him into taking a survey to see if we would have matched online! I'm super impressed because…

Classic, Simple, Natural Newborn Photography

I was always taught that newborn photographers had to create specific poses of babies wearing adorable outfits, on colorful backdrops in unique props. So I studied with a famous newborn photographer that specialized in posing babies to learn how to safely put newborn babies into classic poses. However I wasn’t creatively fulfilled, something was missing. While my newborn work looked beautiful, it lacked the authenticity and emotion that I capture during my lifestyle sessions. Now I aim to capture the love a newborn’s parents feel and the details that make newborn babies truly unique with classic, simple, natural newborn photography. Natural Newborn Sessions are Relaxed + Fun Natural newborn sessions feel relaxed for both parents and babies. A newborn yearns to be comfy, full, warm and close to mom and dad. A low-stress environment allows for the best photo outcomes. Instead of worrying about the perfect sleeping pose, we catch your…

Newborn Interview – Pittsburgh Lifestyle Photographer

Katie and Morgan warmly welcomed me into their historic and picturesque home on a cold winter morning. I enjoyed touring their beautifully decorated space looking for the best locations and lighting to capture this loving family. I thoroughly enjoyed learning about their lives and travels during the lifestyle photo shoot. As I was leaving I caught a glance at a witch above their kitchen sink. It reminded me of a witch my husband and I had received as a wedding gift from a friend that lives in the south. I was so curious about it. We laughed and googled to learn that it is a German tradition and she brings good luck to your home. I'm now curious how common kitchen witches are. Let me know if you have one too in the comments below. I hope you enjoy hearing Katie and Morgan story! How did you two meet? I was…

Modern Newborn Studio Photography

For years I have captured natural posing for families, children, and high school seniors resulting in images that look candid and relaxed. I want to bring this same philosophy to my newborn studio portraits! My approach to studio photography has always been much more modern than the rigid over lit photos from the past. I aim to capture your newborn as they are, let their personality shine to create simple studio newborn portraits! When in the studio, your baby and your family are the focus…. not the location or the background. My goal is to create images that will stand the test of time.  A modern twist on a classic look! Baby Led Posing In the studio, I aim to create a comfortable environment for your baby to curl up, stretch out, or possibly even smile. I love documenting babies unique details and personalities. I have found that the best way…

Newborn Session Interview – Pittsburgh Photographer

During quarantine I had the opportunity to revamp the studio with a fresh coat of paint on the walls, update the floor, and new props. It was finished just days before I received an email requesting a newborn lifestyle shoot in the studio from a super sweet new mom. It was a wonderful experience photographing a newborn again, even if I needed to wear a mask and stay at a distance! How did you and your spouse meet?

Incorporating Older Children in a Newborn Lifestyle Session – Pittsburgh Newborn Photographer

Bringing a baby home is a big adjustment for everyone, especially for the older siblings. Sometimes it's a positive adjustment and sometimes it's not. After years of being a newborn and family photographer, I have seen it all! My goal is to make your older child feel special at the photoshoot. I spend time getting to know them and do my best to consider their feelings on becoming a big sister or brother.  I've noticed that children enjoy the attention and the time to love and examine the their new baby. Safety First Although we may appreciate how precious and fragile newborns are, even the well intentioned toddler may not be up up to the task of holding a newborn! Therefore, I typically get photos of the newborn baby and older siblings by placing the baby safely on a bed and inviting the other children to sit next to him or her, or by…
