I was honored to be chosen to not only photograph this sweet little newborn boy in my Pittsburgh, PA studio, but also to have the opportunity to photograph his beautiful mom (and family!) for a maternity session in Pittsburgh’s gorgeous Mellon Park. I love having the opportunity to meet families while they are expecting and capture that special time before their little one arrives. If you are expecting, please be sure to ask about my maternity photography session special offered with a booked newborn session!
This beautiful family had a bit of a drive to get to my studio for their newborn session. I often ask parents to try to keep their little one up for a bit prior to the session to get them nice and sleepy; but we all know how car rides put a baby right to sleep! It didn’t make one bit of difference for this little man. We only saw his beautiful eyes at the very end when I woke him up to get an alert photo or two!

I had so many hats planned for this newborn session and as soon as I saw this perfect little man’s amazing hair, I knew it couldn’t be covered up!
At the end of each newborn photography session, I try to get a few cute awake photos. Newborns have such a hard time focusing their eyes, so I have to wait for the exact right moment and snap the photo. When this little boy started yawning, I couldn’t resist. How adorable is a tiny baby yawn!!?

Pittsburgh Newborn Baby Photographer: Ever since I got back from vacation a few weeks back it has been a baby boom! I’ve had so much fun photographing all of these gorgeous little newborns in my Pittsburgh, PA studio. But, with all of the activity, I (once again!) got behind blogging some favorites from sessions I did earlier!
During a newborn photography session, each baby is different and I constantly adjust my ‘plan’ based on what suits them. Some love being wrapped up nice and cozy, but get a bit unsettled once the wraps are off; others are perfectly content without any wrap, but don’t love being swaddled. Then, there are some babies who let me do anything I want and are as peaceful as can be! This little one was one of those babies! Generally I don’t do a lot of prop-type sets; however this family are HUGE Harry Potter fans and wanted to incorporate that theme into this shoot as that is where they got their beautiful little girl’s name. I was all too happy to oblige and am totally in love with how the photo turned out. (please know that this photo was done safely with dad standing right next to her, ready to have a hand on her if she tried to move…which she didn’t at all!). I don’t know many babies who will sleep peacefully on a stack of books!
I hope you enjoy some favorites from her session as much as I enjoyed my time with her and her family!

Every year since my daughter turned 1, we have taken our family vacation to Wild Dunes Resort on the Isle of Palms. It’s about 20 minutes outside of Charleston, SC and is just the most amazing family vacation spot I have ever been. I can’t recommend it highly enough! Beautiful beaches, WARM ocean water, great pools, wonderful restaurants, kiddos activities and just so many wonderful things to do. And that is just at the resort! Charleston is also such a cool city. The food is amazing, the aquarium and children’s museum are top notch and it’s really a fun place to just walk around.
Each year we have gone has happened to fall on the week of my daughter, Ava’s, birthday. This year was no exception! On the day of her 6th birthday she started asking when we were going to do pictures. While we only had one day of rain, most days were completely overcast, which is great for photos most of the time. I was hoping for a bit of sun, but what can you do!
A lot of these look ‘posed’ and I’ve had clients ask how I get her to ‘pose’ like that. For one thing, Ava is used to being in front of the camera….I kind of take her picture a lot! haha! But, most importantly, I don’t pose her. I tell her where to sit or where to walk and then I try to get her talking. Or I tell her to look at something (sometimes it’s real, sometimes it’s not). With little girls her age, if you get them talking, they are just so expressive with their faces and gestures and, to me, those end up being the best pictures. They aren’t always looking at the camera and they aren’t always smiling. But there’s SOMETHING going on in those busy little minds and you can see it!
Here are some favorites of Ava on her birthday!
Now you might think, doesn’t Christie have another child?! Where is he during all of this?! Well, let me tell you, there is one thing Parker dislikes more than getting his picture taken….and that is the ocean! We did manage to get him and my adorable niece, Katrina down in the sand and in a little grassy area for a few pictures. It was all fun and games until the tide came in (I’m talking like an inch of water here) and touched Parker’s feet. That pretty much ended the fun and he ran like a shark was chasing him! If you look at the one picture of him pulling his shorts up way too high, it’s to keep any water from touching them at all. Way to protect those shorts little guy! haha!
