Pittsburgh Pregnancy, Baby, Child and Family Portraits


Art made from moments

Create works of art for your home with moments captured by Pittsburgh Photographer Kristin Merck. We begin with the end in mind, talking about how you want to view your portraits and exactly what moments, traits or relationships you want to capture.

Moments transformed into statement pieces

I believe in the power of photography to tell a story. My goal is to capture the magic in all of life's moments and transform it into statement pieces for your home.

Tangible memories

I capture the wrinkles and dimples of newborns, beauty and bumps of expectant mothers and the energy of growing families. Then, turn these images into stunning wall art and keepsakes to cherish forever.
