Awarded one of the Best Family and Newborn Photographers in Pittsburgh! Mom of 4 with over 20 yrs experience, I provide a stress-free experience making family photos relaxed and fun!
Award-winning Pittsburgh photographer, Pamela’s style is candid and natural. Pamela Anticole is one of the best family photographers in Pittsburgh PA, with over 15 years of experience as a family photojournalist.
I currently offer family photography mini sessions in the North Park area of Pittsburgh (spring, summer, AND fall!), and every single family session includes unposed documentary photos as well as relaxed lifestyle family photography portraits outside! I specialize in family photography sessions at your home or in your backyard where you are most comfortable, that highlight natural unposed interactions.
When I search for a family photographer near me, I don’t just want someone who is close by. I want someone with experience who knows how to photograph my family in home, creating beautiful relaxed photos in our natural environment. There is a newborn photographer near me who photographs newborn sessions in a studio and it just isn’t the same as taking pictures of baby in her nursery at home.
Newborn photography in Pittsburgh can be done as a Fresh 48 session in your hospital or birth place, or we can photograph your baby in your nursery or home in a more relaxed setup, at your leisure. Newborn sessions are unposed or lightly directed in a lifestyle newborn photography way. We will find beautiful light and then you snuggle with your baby while I photograph all those beautiful little baby details and cuddles. Big sisters and brothers are encouraged, and we have a lot of fun!
If you are looking for a birth photographer in Pittsburgh, let’s talk about what you are looking for. I have photographed births at Magee, West Penn, Sewickley Hospital, the Midwife Center in the Strip District, and many other locations. And I had birth photographers at every one of my own 4 births, and am so incredibly grateful for those images!
My clients hire me for my creative candid approach as well as my dedication to give each of my clients an easy photography experience. Look no farther to find the best family photographer in Pittsburgh!
Currently also offering front porch photos for kids in the Pittsburgh area, otherwise known as porchtraits.
I am a photographic storyteller in Pittsburgh, PA specializing in photographing families in unposed, relaxed photoshoots at home, that I call REAL LIFE sessions. These are relaxed lifestyle sessions at the client’s own home. For newborn photography sessions, we spend time cuddling with baby in his nursery, going for a walk, or hanging out in the living room. You can give baby bath and read stories, or just snuggle up and take in all that fresh baby smell. For moms who think they might want a birth photographer, I offer on-call birth photography in Pittsburgh (with experience in Magee, the Midwife Center, and UPMC Mercy). OR you can opt for a Fresh 48 session, a popular option where I photograph you cuddling with baby in your birth place. Both options are unposed, focusing on candid natural moments framed in artistic ways.
As a Pittsburgh family photographer, I specialize in unposed lifestyle sessions at home where you are comfortable! We can play in the backyard, bounce on the bed, head to the park or get some ice cream. Cook a meal together and I’ll take pictures! Of course we grab posed pictures, too, but the majority of the session is unposed and undirected. The photos will together tell the story of your life right now.
Families hire me because I am a photojournalist: I create photography that is nuanced and authentic, with an experience that is easy and fun! I photograph family events, simple outings, and day-in-the-life sessions at home (where all the love is!).
I also educate parents on how to use their cameras, and how to capture memorable photos of their kids. Currently offering workshops and 1:1 mentoring.
I have several longer term personal projects in development, including investigating multi-generational family-run businesses, and elderly living.
To participate in these projects, for more information about hiring me to photograph your family, or for information about photography classes, please contact me directly at email@example.com or by using the form below.
