The Darling Miss Olivia

She has her mommy’s eyes…bright, thoughtful, and kind.   And it may be too early to tell, but I think she has her daddy’s smile.  You may remember her mommy and daddy from their maternity session in the springtime, not so very long ago when the trees were in bloom.  When parents feel their baby kicking inside momma’s belly, they dream about what she will look like, what her personality will be.  By the loving way that Safiya and Robbie look at their little girl, you can tell that she is everything they hoped for and more.


Safiya and Robbie, congratulations on your BEAUTIFUL baby girl!!!   (((Hugs))) Sandy

Tanya - Beautiful! Love the co-ordinating outfits and white room. The photos look so peaceful. Gorgeous new family!

mary beth - You are amazing! Such beautiful images of a gorgeous baby and family!

Perfect Day

I love doing lifestyle photography, because it is a blend of photojournalism and fine art portraiture.  It tells a story…captures a feeling…observes personalities and relationships.  I had the best time photographing Casey, Brian, and their little peanut Sloan, on a beautiful day in the countryside.  There was so much love in this family!  I put together a little video that I think captures the day perfectly.  I hope you’ll take a few minutes to enjoy it.

To book your family photo session, call Sandy today at 412-216-3914 or contact her here.


Jenny - The photos are absolutely gorgeous Sandy! What a wonderful video.

Sandy - Thanks, Jenny! :)

Hello, Little Maeve!

With sweet chubby cheeks and a fuzzy head of hair, little miss Maeve made her newborn photography debut  in “aaawww”-inpiring style. If you’re wondering if she is as cuddly as she looks, I can confirm–she absolutely is. :)

Umm, Josie, you just had a baby, and you look amazing!

Daddy and his girls. :-)

Wow, look at those eyelashes!

Congratulations to Josie, Brandon, and big sister Eliana!   (((Hugs))) Sandy

Gianna {7 Months}

This little peanut has grown so much in just 7 months since her newborn photos!  Gianna and her mom came by the studio for a Sitting Up mini session, a shorter session I offer just for 6-9 month old babies.  It is a great way to capture milestones between the newborn and one year sessions.

Here she is, Miss Gianna, who is already full of so much personality!

I can’t wait for your first year photo session, little Gianna!  xoxo, Sandy

Newborn twin photography sessions are a special treat, because it’s twice the cuteness!  May I introduce to you Brooklyn Rose and Brynlee Ann, just 11 days old!  I also want to give a shout out to my friend Carrie of Carrie Farmerie Photography for lending me a hand with this session–you are the best, Carrie!!

Congratulations, Brian and Melissa!  I had a wonderful time with your beautiful family!!  (((Hugs)))  Sandy
