just another day in paradise…….

Watching as big brother walks to the school bus, playing hide and seek, cuddling with blankie, and pretending with dolly. Just about a perfect winter morning with my baby.

554 days | Pittsburgh’s Premier Child Photographer

554 days since she got here. Feels like forever and like we just met all at the same time.

I guess I was heading toward another ‘bad mother award’ neglecting my children’s portraits again, but the light was just too beautiful tonight to miss. So we hopped in the car an rode to the other side of the neighborhood- to this little spot that I have been eying up for a while. We just needed a couple of minutes and that is pretty much all she game me. Man is she fast!

So happy fall.


year four ….here we come | Pittsburgh child and family photographer

Cry, my sweet baby girl is 4.

How on earth did this happen? It feels like just yesterday when I was bed ridden for 91 days trying my best to keep this tiny baby girl from coming too early. It was such an uncertain time….I remember praying so hard for this sweet baby to arrive here safely. So during this time while I was busy staying pregnant I was also busy reading and experimenting. I had met a great group of ladies on an online pregnancy and baby forum. There they had a little ole DSLR Hobbyist board. I’d say that is where this crazy photography journey first birthed ; – 0 Once my little peanut was born it got even greater. How could I not capture this perfect little baby that I had cared for so intensely for so long? She made it here safely……5 weeks early at a whopping 4 lbs, but she was here and PERFECT.

And she still is perfectly sweet, perfectly sassy, and perfectly all mine.Oh how I love you sweetie.

Thank you for giving me someone to love. Thank you for giving me a reason to work so hard and thank you for making me want to be the best I can be.

Happy 4th birthday big girl!
