About

Hi, I'm Mary Beth and I hate to have my photo taken.

Seriously. I feel completely awkward on THAT side of the camera. I get crazy eyes and I don't know what to do with my arms.

But I also know the importance of pushing past that awkwardness to exist in photos with my family.

My favorite photos with my family are when I'm engaged with my kids and not looking at the camera. These are the kinds of photos that I love to take for other families.

 

I still always take some naturally posed "portraits" where everyone is looking at the camera and smiling (perfect for Facebook profiles and Grandma's wall) but the rest of our session will be totally laid back.

No awkwardness, no crazy eyes, no worrying about what to do with your arms. I want you to snuggle your baby or play with your kids and leave the rest up to me.

I know the stress behind preparing for a family photo session so my goal is to keep the process easy and as stress free as possible.

And now, here's a little more about me...

 

•I'm a Mom to three boys that are 11, 15 & 17. (don't believe the rumors, teenagers are actually pretty awesome)

•I'm married to my best friend and we've been together for 23 years! I have no idea how he puts up with me most of the time but we definitely laugh a lot together.

•I was born and raised in Pittsburgh (but I know very little about the Penguins, Steelers or Pirates, #sorrynotsorry)


•I'm a Dog Mom to two rescue dogs: Rosco the giant Bernese Mt. Dog and Lucy, a petite golden retriever.

•My favorite place to be is in the woods and I love the idea of camping but sleeping in a tent makes me super grumpy.


•I love to rewatch seasons of New Girl, The Office & Schitt's Creek (laughter is the BEST medicine)

 

•Memes and funny animal videos keep me laughing and sane.

•I'm 43 and I still don't know how to put on make up or do my hair but I can change your flat tire. (Thanks Dad)

 

•My family lived on a garlic farm for almost 10 years! I was a crazy chicken lady, beekeeper and gardener but we recently relocated back to residential life.

I'd love to hear more about your family. Get in touch so we can plan your unique session.

Don't put it off any longer because kids have a way of growing up much too fast!

"I am so incredibly happy I found Mary Beth Miller. She is not only talented, but is a sweet and kind person, and seemed truly interested in our little family. She was wonderful on the day of our shoot. I was thrilled to the bone with her work and hope to work with her again some time!" -Mandy Z.

A little bit about me...

•I'm a Mom to three boys that are 11, 15 & 17. Don't believe the rumors, teenagers are actually pretty awesome. But as a Mama to older kids, I know how cruel time can be and how they grow up WAY too fast!

•I'm married to my best friend and we've been together for 23 years! I have no idea how he puts up with me most of the time but we definitely laugh a lot together.

•I was born and raised in Pittsburgh (but I know very little about the Penguins, Steelers or Pirates, #sorrynotsorry)
