Who Am I?

Are we a good fit?

 

You’re a busy mom (or soon to be mom). You know you want photos to remember these really special moments and milestones, but you’re not sure if you have the time to put into it. I get it. The last thing you want to worry about is what to do with all the beautiful photos you now have. Chances are they will sit on your computer while you try figure that out (I’ve been there, I know).

That’s where I come in. From the very start, I make sure to get to know you and your family. This helps get those really personal images during your session, the ones that are most special and will take you back to the moment they were taken each time you look at them. Then we work together to build the perfect art piece, whether its something for your wall (using my software to show you exactly what it will look like, on YOUR walls, to scale!) or a gorgeous album you can pass to your children one day. I do all the work to create something you will love for years to come, and all you really have to do is show up 🙂

My studio has everything you may need from diapers, wipes, pacifiers and gripe water for baby to coffee, tea, water and snacks for parents and even snacks and toys for kids. And wifi for everyone 🙂 If you are hungry, there is a great restaurant just steps from my door and also a cafe/bakery a couple more steps away. I am also next to two very talented hair/make up artists if you want to take one more worry off of your list!

If you feel like we may be a good fit, contact me to start personalizing your session today! Its best to book your session in advance as I have moms who book 5 or 6 months ahead!

 

merck083-cropSo who am I?

I’m a New England girl born and raised on Cape Cod (yes, people really do live there year-round). I found myself moving to Pittsburgh almost 10 years ago with my boyfriend (now husband). We have 2 amazing kids and a little dog too 🙂

I love Chocolate, the beach, cooking (and eating haha) and good company.

I go a little crazy without a creative outlet.

I’m a morning person, but a solitary morning person. I get up early so that I can get in some alone time and ease into my day.

My first career was as an Architect.

I like working out, but I’m terrible at keeping it regular.

I may be one of the most uncoordinated people you’ll ever meet. My husband still can’t believe I used to be a figure skater when he sees me walk into walls and trip on my own feet.

Sometimes I start a conversation mid-thought because, of course, everyone knows how it started in my head 🙂

And because what Mom can resist showing off her kiddos, here are my babies 🙂
