About Kristin Merck Photography

Your Family is Everything

The silly moments, the lessons learned, the achievements, milestones and everything in between are what shape you. How often do you scroll through photos on your phone or Facebook memories and start giggling or tearing up at a memory?

Imagine having that feeling every day as you walk by portraits on your walls, bringing you back all those years when Johnny lost both of his front teeth or Susie’s curly hair had a life of it’s own. These memories become more valuable every day they pass. Our children really do grow way too fast!!

My own 2 kids are growing so fast I can barely keep up! My husband and I met in Philly and moved me here to start our family (he is a native and I am from Cape Cod) and we love our community here in Pittsburgh!

My kids are involved in all sorts of activities that keep us all busy, so I completely understand how much your free time is worth. So I make it my mission to take the stress and planning off your plate so you can spend more time with the ones that mean the most to you.

The Studio

My studio is located on the golf course, which is fully available exclusively to us for your photo sessions! Inside the studio boasts a large shooting space, a prop room and a sitting room for parents to relax during the session.

Looking for props? Wardrobe? Look no further! I have all the baskets, buckets, wraps, headbands, hats, and more that you could ask for 🙂 Relax during the session and let me do the work! Enjoy some coffee, tea, water, and snacks, surf the web using the free wifi, and worry not if you have left a baby essential at home! I've got everyone covered. 

Come visit me! I offer complimentary consultations before you book if you want to see the space in person, learn more about the sessions and see if we would be a good fit!

I am a Certified Professional Photographer and have received a Master Photographer and craftsman degrees from Professional Photographers of America (PPA), as well as a Master Child, Family and Newborn Photographer designations through the National Assoc. of Professional Child Photographers (NAPCP).

Seize the moment.

Let’s talk about your story and how we’ll create the perfect portrait.
