Photography for the Adventurous!

I am a photographic storyteller in Pittsburgh, PA specializing in photographing families in natural, fun photoshoots that highlight the beauty in real life.

 

Families hire me for photojournalism: photography that is nuanced and authentic, with a photo session experience that is easy and fun! I photograph families of all sizes, weddings, events, and day-in-the-life sessions at home or on outings. I also offer photography mentoring/education and am working on several long term personal projects.

 

Pittsburgh people, let's talk about your family pictures!

From Pamela...

"My favorite pictures of my own family are so different than what I see on social media... They are perfectly imperfect, often with messy house and grumpy faces. They are weird, abstract, or thought-provoking. They tell simple stories of our unique life! They contain memories.

They are NOSTALGIC.

THIS is the gift I want to give to all my clients. Because we only have our little ones for a few precious years, years that are really hard to appreciate while we're in them. And years that we achingly miss once they're done. I want to bottle up those memories for parents."

Session Info

Remember your family life the way it actually happened- with unique storytelling photography sessions.

 

These sessions capture relaxed family portraits along with candid pictures that celebrate the beauty of unposed family life- either at home or on an outing!

You heard me right: both candid AND posed pictures. Best of both worlds!

Aside from their homes, I have joined clients for ice cream, to the playground, grocery store, and to the Christmas tree farm. The options are as limited as your imagination!

 

The majority of your session is unposed as I capture natural images that tell the story of your lives together; and then we have the flexibility to do portraits once the kids have warmed up to the camera and the lighting is perfect.

 

(Just interested in a few portraits? Consider a mini session!)

Client Love

"I’m totally sitting on my screened porch ugly crying into my cup of tea. You have no idea how much I love all of these images! And, this is us! You totally captured us and our real life and I cannot even put into words how happy this makes me! I’ll treasure these forever and can’t wait to create an album with them ❤️ Thank you!!"
