family sessions

Each year, your family grows and changes. As time passes, how we capture those memories changes, too. In the past, we only ever got family photos at the mall portrait studio with forced smiles and unnatural posing. Now, the options are endless and the unnatural, static poses are becoming obsolete.


Whether you're more into greenery and flowers or architecture and industrial landscapes, I can accommodate your ideal look - especially with the Pittsburgh city and suburbs as my playground. With so much variety available, there truly is a beautiful spot to fill anyone's desires. I do my best to scout locations that will provide flexibility for different looks - especially first thing in the morning or right at golden hour in the evening.

The key, like with children, is to have fun, play and laugh together as a family. Pure joy is easiest captured when it is occurring naturally and without force. So bring a willingness to let loose to your session, and we'll be sure to capture some amaze

Both my kids will not be hesistant to do a photosession now. When my husband saw the great pictures that were produced by the session, he agreed, we need to hire Jessica again for our family photos! Thanks again and I will treasure these photos for the rest of my life!!!
