Babies make the world a better place – especially yours
Expecting a baby soon?
Your sweet little baby is such a precious blessing. I cannot wait to meet your newest little one. Below are lots of images of some of the gorgeous babies I’ve had the honor of photographing, in addition to more details about my newborn sessions.

Newborn experience + expertise
With years of experience in newborn photography, I understand the unique needs and challenges that come with capturing those delicate first moments. You can trust me to handle your newborn with the utmost care and to create stunning images that will be cherished for generations.
As a mom of four beautiful kids, I understand that this time in your life is beautiful and stressful all at once. I want you to feel comfortable at my studio and to know that your little baby is in the best of hands. I always make sure that your newborn is well taken care of – both for the photography posing and for the session, with attention to feeding and diaper needs.
Unique Artistic Vision
I believe that every baby is a work of art. You should have photos of their special little dimple – so small on their little cheek. You should see their little baby fingernails – a little jagged, but still soft from the day they were born. You should remember their sweet head of hair – the way it spikes up a bit and the softness of the strands that is lost over time. I skillfully compose each shot, ensuring that every detail is captured in a way that showcases the extraordinary beauty of your little one.
I also love images that are true-to-color, consistent. and crisp. In all of my work you can see that I am focused on clean backgrounds where my clients (and your little one!) are the focus of attention. During my newborn sessions, I keep babies in more monochromatic setups, so that you can really see their sweet chubby cheeks. I also like to make sure that my baby photos are true-to-color and babies do not look too washed out. I love to see some of the sweet pink in those little cheeks!
I understand that every family is unique, and I tailor my sessions to reflect your individual style and preferences. From choosing the perfect backdrop colors and props to incorporating meaningful elements into the photographs, I work closely with you to create a truly personalized experience.
Before your session, I will ask for some details about your nursery and home style so that I can pull wraps and bonnets or headbands that truly match your personal style. If you’re looking for super-girly – I have that! If you’d like to stick to neutrals – I have that too! If your husband wants a photo of the baby with his bow case – I’ve done it 🙂 I’m all about customizing your session to your style.
I strive to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere where you and your baby can feel at ease. My cozy studio in Pittsburgh is thoughtfully designed to provide a peaceful setting for your newborn’s photo session. I have all the necessary amenities to ensure your comfort during your time here.
You are welcome to relax on the studio couch and browse through some albums or catch up on Bridgerton. Your little one’s older siblings can play outside on the swing set, or color on the studio table. There is a refrigerator for anything you’d like to keep cold, and you can pump during your newborn’s session if you need to! I also have a restroom and changing room for you to use here at the studio. Finally, the studio is kept warm with a noise machine running if you’d like to have a little snooze 🙂
My goal is to deliver breathtaking images that become cherished keepsakes for your family. From stunning wall art to heirloom albums, I offer a range of products that beautifully showcase your baby’s images and allow you to relive these precious moments for years to come. All of my newborn sessions include the high-resolution digital images with print release. Images are edited prior to delivery to you, so you see the beautiful, finished product!
My studio is located near Beaver. It is very easy to access from I-376, Rt. 51, Rt.65, and the Turnpike.
Session Rate + Inclusion
Sessions are 750 and include the studio time, edited images in color and black/white, and an online gallery with print release. You can also order prints, canvases, and heirloom albums from your newborn session.
When to Reserve
We will hold your due date as your tentative session time. Once the baby arrives (whether that be early, late, or right-on-time!) we will schedule your session for 7-14 days of age.
My experience with babies
I am the dish-washing, diaper-changing, schedule-organizing mom of four awesome kids. You might meet them at some point if you come to the property for a session!
Joy (9) – loves swimming and being the boss. She’s very responsible and helpful for my sessions if needed.
Bronco (5) – loves Matchbox cars and is obsessed with the weather and natural disasters (?!)
Paige “PJ” (3) – absolutely adorable, and absolutely a nightmare.
Grant (baby) – completed our family
Brad (44) – works hard to keep our grass cut and the property looking beautiful. Married 15 years.
I absolutely love holding newborns, and can answer a million mom-questions. I love the challenge of a two-year-old, and four year olds are really fun! I love talking with the older children to get to know their thoughts, and believe that every age of childhood is fleeting, and thus – incredibly meaningful.
