Over 15 years in wedding & family photography

I know weddings - because I was once in the wild-midst of planning my own.

I know babies - because I have four beautiful little ones I held at their first breath.

I know families - because I see mine growing each and every day.

Documenting your legacy is a passion, and you deserve a photographer who is as passionate about your own story as she is about hers.

My heart for this beautiful life we get to live comes through in my work.

Born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, I know the most-beautiful locations in the city for proposals, engagement sessions, and your wedding images. I am honored to work often at some of Pittsburgh's stunning event venues. I believe that Pittsburgh is a city with a golden heart, and is one of the best places to plan your wedding. Every year I find myself in venues such as the Carnegie Museum of Art, Phipps Conservatory, Omni William Penn Hotel, and The Pennsylvanian - just to name a few.

In addition to my love of the city, I also own a studio and over 50 acres of property in Beaver County, where I photograph newborn babies and family sessions. I firmly believe that the light at the studio property is even more beautiful than any city park, and I look forward to my family clients coming to visit year after year with their growing groups.

As an experienced wedding photographer, one of the most important skills I bring to the table is the ability to beautifully light wedding photos. Lighting can make or break a photograph, and it's especially important in the context of a wedding, where the lighting can vary greatly depending on the time of day and location of the ceremony and reception.

One of the biggest challenges of wedding photography is capturing the beauty of the ceremony and reception while also dealing with the often less-than-ideal lighting conditions. Whether it's the harsh sunlight of a midday ceremony or the dim light of an evening reception, I have the skills and experience to create beautiful, well-lit photographs that truly capture the essence of your special day.

One of the keys to beautiful wedding photography is understanding the different types of light and how to use them to your advantage. For example, natural light can be incredibly beautiful, but it can also be harsh and unforgiving. I know how to use natural light to create soft, natural-looking photographs that are both beautiful and true to life.

I also know how to work with artificial light, such as flash and continuous lighting, to create stunning photographs in low-light situations. This can be especially important during the reception, when the lighting may be dim and the colors of the room may be muted. By using artificial light, I can create photographs that truly capture the beauty and energy of the reception.

Lastly, one of the most important part of lighting the wedding photos is the ability to understand the composition, posing and direction of the light to enhance the overall look of the photo. This is where my 15 years of experience comes into play, as I have a great understanding of the technical and artistic aspects of photography and use that knowledge to create beautiful and unique photographs for my clients. Photographing weddings here in Pittsburgh in the winter is a lighting challenge - you'll want a photographer who can handle it all!

Lighting is one of the most important aspects of wedding photography, and as an experienced professional, I have the skills and expertise to create beautiful, well-lit photographs that truly capture the essence of your special day. Whether it's the harsh sunlight of a midday ceremony or the dim light of an evening reception, I know how to use light to create stunning photographs that you'll treasure for a lifetime.


Your wedding photographer should be organized before, during, and after the wedding day. I work for my couples providing them with lots of helpful planning information such as recommended vendors, photo locations, timeline planning, and venue input.

On the day of the wedding, you can enjoy the day, since your timeline will be flowing and organized. You can take in this brief period of time in the most relaxed way possible.

This type of balanced, relaxed organization is an art in-and-of itself! You’ve come to the experienced professional.


As a family, newborn, and children photographer, I understand the importance of capturing the precious and fleeting moments of childhood. As a mother of four kids, I know how quickly time passes and how important it is to have beautiful photographs to remember these special moments. From the first days of a newborn's life to the playful antics of young children, I strive to create beautiful and timeless images that perfectly capture the unique personalities and special bonds of each family I photograph.

I am honored to have the opportunity to work with families from all over the Beaver, PA area and beyond, and I am dedicated to providing each and every one of my clients with a personalized and enjoyable photography experience. I have a studio near Beaver, PA where I can accommodate small and big families, and create a comfortable and safe environment for your little ones.

When photographing families, my goal is to capture the love and connection between family members in a natural and candid way. I strive to create images that are not only beautiful, but also tell the story of your family's unique bond. One of the things that I love the most about my job is to see my wedding couples grow into families, and I continue to photograph year after year. It is an honor for me to be able to document the growth and evolution of a family through the years.

For newborn photography, my focus is on capturing the tiny details and delicate beauty of your new little one. I understand the importance of safety and comfort for both the baby and the parents, and I work closely with each family to ensure that their needs are met.

Children are full of energy and wonder, and I strive to capture their unique personalities and playful spirits in my images. Whether it's a traditional portrait or a candid shot of a child in motion, I aim to create images that perfectly capture the joy and wonder of childhood.

If you are looking for a family, newborn, or children photographer who will work closely with you to create beautiful and timeless images that perfectly capture the special moments of your life, I would be honored to work with you. Contact me today to schedule your session and let's create something beautiful together!
