• Hello and thank you for visiting my site! I am a newborn, baby, and child photographer based in Pittsburgh Pa. I grew up here in Pittsburgh and love exploring new parts of the city and countryside to use for my photography sessions! I also have a studio in Millvale that works great for newborn sessions, babies and small children. I do take family photos as well and those are always done on location. I love to use natural light as much as possible so the location of your session will depend on the time of day we pick. While you are here grab a snack and browse through my portfolio! Feel free to 99,111,110,116,97,99,116,32,109,101em tcatnoc with any questions. Have a great day!

Mother’s Day Sessions {Pittsburgh baby photographer}

I have to say being a baby photographer in Pittsburgh can be challenging, but not nearly as challenging as being a Mom. Motherhood is a job that pulls you in directions you never thought you could go… it strengthens your patience and your heart strings… it is exhausting and emotional and so rewarding. You will cry tears of frustration but also tears of joy and love.

Give your Mom a hug today! Mother’s Day is coming up and we are having our annual Mother’s Day photo sessions! Last year we had so much fun. We had a hair stylist and makeup artist there to make sure the Moms looked stunning! We also had delicious pastries from “that French bakery in Millvale” which is called Jean-Marc Chatellier’s French Bakery. We had coffee and munched and chatted while everyone got all dolled up for their photos.

Here are a few of our favorites from last year!

As any Mom would say, the first year goes too fast! I remember the first couple weeks of my daughter’s life seemed to last forever because it was such an adjustment. But then after that time FLEW! Now she is three and a half yikes!

It’s so important for Mom’s to get in the picture once and awhile. I know it’s tough Moms! Believe me I never want to get in with my daughter at the time but I always look back and I’m thankful someone pushed me in there!

Dress up fun {Pittsburgh child photographer}

As a child photographer in Pittsburgh I am always coming up with ideas to keep kids engaged. Did you like to play dress up when you were a kid? I know my daughter does, and most children I work with love it. This photo session was done for an editorial submission, and the idea was that the flower girl and ring bearer of the wedding snuck out of the ceremony and crashed the reception early! It was taken at the beautiful Morning Glory Inn on the South Side.

Little Hero Jessica

The Little Heroes series features babies and kids who have had a rough time in their lives whether it be physical or emotional. This week we feature Jessica who came to visit us at the studio last week with her Mom. She is a true hero! Leave some love for her and her family in the comments:)

Jessica’s story as told by Mom-

Jessica’s life did not start like most children. She came into the world not kicking and screaming. She entered the world on October 7, 1992 at 26 weeks and weighed in at 2lb 2oz. She in a way was fortunate her mom had her then walked away. Jessica was diagnosed with CP, Fetal Alcohol, Crack, Failure to thrive. She was a little soul with nobody to love. Jessica had to have a fight in her because she beat the odds she was given. Jessica spend 3 month in the hospital before entering a foster home in Philadelphia. We had the great fortune to meet her in November 1994. There was an instant bond between her and our son Alex. After spending the weekend with her and attending all her Dr.’s appointments, we started making arrangements to bring her to Pittsburgh. What a wonderful Christmas present she was to the family. We were told to love and spoil here since she would never walk, talk or be able to attend any type of school. Jessica came to Pittsburgh December 10, 1994 she was 26 months old and 18 lbs and on a feeding tube. Our work started. Jessica was a fighter and proved everyone wrong. On January 4th she started to walk. Talking took a little longer since everyone was willing to speak for her. She has made it thru many challenges. At the age of 21 she will graduate from Pathfinder School in June 2014. She is a Global Messanger for Special Olympics and loves speaking to crowds about Special O. She is also a very active part of the Law Enforcement Torch Run and the Polar Plunge. Jessica tells everyone she is lucky to have a 2nd family of Law Enforcement members. Pittsburgh Zone 6, Port Authority Police and the FBI agents have made a huge impact on Jessica’s life. They have help bring her out of her shell to the amazing woman she is becoming. I thank God everyday that he watched over her to bring her to us. She keeps our lives busy and is a joy to be around.

  • Scott Schubert - Jess,You have no idea how proud I am of you and how blessed I am to have you and your family in my life. Since the first day I met you in 2010, I knew you were a beautiful and special person, inside and out. All of us in law enforcement, in the Western Pennsylvania area, were new to the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics movement and I can tell you in all sincerity that you were a driving inspiration for all of us. It’s amazing to see how much all of us have grown since the inception of the Pittsburgh Polar Plunge in December 2010. We are all better people because of you and everyone else associated with Special Olympics. You taught all of us that, if we believe and give our all, we can accomplish anything. I thank you for that and I thank you for being a part of my life, a part of my family and a part of the Law Enforcement Torch Run. You are an amazing young woman and I can’t wait to see what you accomplish next. Love, Scott, Lynn, Alex and Haley SchubertReplyCancel

  • Lynn Schubert - P.S. Scotty forgot to say how beautiful you look!!!ReplyCancel
