Lifestyle Newborn Photography

Natural, emotional, and authentic newborn photography for the Pittsburgh area that takes place in the comfort and convenience of your own home.


I see you, new mama.

Tired, but triumphant. The little one you spent nine long months carrying and dreaming of and whispering to quietly in the dark is finally here. No time is sweeter, more exhilarating, more exhausting, or more fleeting than the first few weeks of bringing home baby.  Before you know it, these hazy newborn days will slip through your fingers into nothing more than a sweet memory.

I’m a mom myself, so I understand how important it is to document this time. But (cough cough) I’m a mom myself— so I know how stressful bringing home baby and trying to get ready for a photography session can be.

So, I make easy.


When you schedule a newborn session with me, I make sure you don’t have to worry about a thing.

You have enough on your plate— what with that whole “bringing a new life into the world” thing. The last thing you need is unnecessary stress planning a photography session.

From booking to scheduling to planning your session and wardrobe, I make everything a breeze.


Booking is fast and straightforward. You can prepare with a “what to expect” planning guide so there are no surprises (at least not with our session! I can make no promises about baby poop). I give you tips on only cleaning the corners of your house you need to— (nesting goes a long way for this, but you don’t need to go overboard!)You even receive customized wardrobe advice, and access to a personalized styling tool so you can style and shop for photo-ready outfits from the comfort of your couch while still wearing those maternity leggings and sipping seltzer water from a wine glass.

The hardest part will be deciding which images are your favorite.


When you look back on these photos you will remember what that sweet, milk-drunk breath felt like on your chest. You’ll feel the warmth of their tiny, soft body snuggled up close in your arms, and the tender newborn coos as you swaddle them tight. You’ll see the pride and joy on your partner’s face, and feel exactly how much you love each other right here, and right now.

And the best part is, you never even have to leave your home.


Because I know that it is the tiny moments, full of tiny fingers and toes, and noses and bows, that make your whole world bigger. It’s the long, dark nights that make your days brighter. Somehow, it’s the slow, exhausting cycle of nursing and cleaning and crying and cuddling that makes time fly. 

It is all of these little nothings in particular, that make up every important thing all at once.

These are the extraordinary moments tucked lovingly inside the newborn days, and I want you to be able to grab hold of them and cherish them for the rest of your life. 

all packages include the digital images, so Grandma can print as many pictures as she can fit on her fridge!

I can’t put into words what these photos mean to us. You captured everything absolutely perfectly- we are in awe! What you gave us through these pictures is exactly what I needed: a stoppage of time, a reminder of those precious days when our baby was new. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
