Can you hear me, little one?  Do you know my voice already?  I’ve been talking to you.  Singing to you.

We’ve been going through a book of baby names.  But we don’t need it; we already have the perfect one picked out.


Can feel that, my sweet baby?  I’m hugging you right now as I cradle my belly.  I’m sending thoughts of love from my heart to yours.  I feel you kicking, and I know you can sense my joy.

I can hardly wait to meet you, my little sweet pea.  It brings a smile to my face thinking of all the happiness you will bring.

Happy Go Lucky

I want to remember this age.  This adorable, cuddly, happy go lucky age.  You’re finally learning to sit up all by yourself…

…and I love how you scoot along on your belly to get around.  It won’t be long before you’re crawling, walking, running…

Everything is just so fascinating.  So many textures and colors to explore with your tiny fingers.  A simple piece of fuzz on the floor is far more interesting than the most colorful toy.

You’re so cute, somehow you manage to even make drool look charming.

Everything goes straight into the mouth right now, of course.

I love how you get the most adorable look of concentration on your face when you’re trying to figure something out.

You’re growing so fast, little one–the past 8 months have flown right by.  I’m looking forward to what each new age and milestone will bring.  But for now, I’ll live in this moment, and imprint these memories on my heart.  For now…

Pregnancy and the anticipation of a baby is such a special time for a couple.  I love seeing the sparkle in their eyes, like it’s almost Christmas and they can hardly wait for their big present to arrive.

They’re about to embark on an amazing journey together, full of wonder, discovery, and more joy than they they ever thought possible.

Daddy kissing the belly is more than just a pretty maternity pose.  He’s kissing his baby and the womb that cradles her.  It’s always a tender and emotional moment, and so very masculine.

This is my favorite kind of newborn photography.  Nothing fancy needed; just a perfect, sweet baby in their natural, relaxed state on a simple neutral backdrop.  When you remove all distraction, baby’s beauty shines through.

Love You More

Is it possible to love you any more, my sweet baby?  Impossible.  Any more and my heart would burst.


But then I see your little feet, kicking in the air…


And those squishy little lips…


and your tiny fingers curl around mine…


And you yawn and squeak and make cute little noises…


And you sleep soundly to the steady beating of my heart…


And the impossible becomes possible…and I love you even more.


. . . . .

I’m a Pittsburgh newborn photographer, and my specialty is capturing the emotions you feel for your baby, tender and pure.  If you are expecting a child and searching for beautiful baby photography, contact me today.

The first time I met Big Sister, she was just an infant, a newborn.  So tiny and precious.  When I look at the little babies that come to my studio for their newborn photo session, I wonder what they’ll look like when they’re older.  What will their personalities be like?  And then they come back to see me, and I don’t have to wonder.  That’s one of the best things about being a family photographer.

Let me tell you some things about little miss E.  She’s a doting Big Sister who showers Little Sister with love and kisses.


She’s got a sweet and funny personality that is utterly charming.


And her enthusiasm is so infectious, you can’t help yourself but to smile when she is around.


Now I look at Little Sister, and wonder what she’ll be like when she is older.


And I can’t wait for the family’s next photo session, because I won’t have to wonder any more.

The way he watches her when she thinks no one is looking, like she is the most beautiful person he’s ever known.  The way she lovingly touches the nape of his neck when they’re close.  The look in their eyes when they place their hands on her belly and imagine what their son will be like.  So much love.


Thank you, Brittney and Jim, for allowing me to capture these intimate moments for you.


If you would like to document your pregnancy in a beautiful and intimate way, you will love the couple’s boudoir maternity session.  Contact me today to schedule yours.

You have your mommy’s eyes and your daddy’s smile, but your sweet little personality is all your own.  Will you be a doctor, or an artist?  Will you be funny or serious, outgoing or shy?  Will you travel the world or put down strong roots in one place?  Only time will tell.  But for now, we’re so happy you’re our darling little dulce.
