It was like any other Tuesday morning where I got up early before the kids and drank my coffee on the porch while I glared at my yoga mat all rolled up in the corner. (I have a love-hate relationship with yoga, I hate getting started, but I usually love it after I get started) I began to talk myself into rolling my mat out but that morning I decided to check my emails first. I have a morning routine that I stick to it because I work hard on balancing my work/life schedules for the sake of my sanity. I get up a few hours before my kids, I have my coffee, do my yoga (most days), then I check my emails and work on my business. However, on this Tuesday morning, I was so glad that I decided to check my email first! Imagine my surprise to read these words with my sleepy eyes…
“…we’re big fans of yours and wanted to let you know that we featured you in our 9 Best Family Photographers in Pittsburgh article!“
I was in total disbelief! Me!? Chosen to be featured in an article with eight other amazing Pittsburgh Family photographers!? What a wonderful way to start my day! And what an amazing honor to be chosen and featured out of many other talented photographers in the area!
Although I am not usually one to share things like this, it did make me feel pretty darn good! So, here I am, sharing it, while also talking myself out of deleting this blog post! I have never been one to draw attention to myself! Like, I was the kid that hated birthday parties, eloped because the thought of a wedding made me full of anxiety and I got mad at my sister for throwing me a beautiful baby shower because the thought of sitting in front of a room opening gifts gave me hives.
“…we looked through hundreds of portfolios and Instagram feeds to find the best Pittsburgh family photographers…”
You can click on over to the article, but here is what Peerspace had to say about my style of family photography.
“Non-traditionalist here — Mary Beth’s style is all documentary. Her in-home sessions are personal stories of the people in the photographs — families baking together, playing together, and loving in the place they are most comfortable: home. Her work perfectly describes what it’s like being you, displayed in the most artistic way. With each session, you get a sense of the personality of the family — playful and chaotic here, loving and messy there, but all realistic. Her black-and-whites are reminiscent of newspaper editorial work, with their lo-fi and low contrast. No matter what side of your family you want on display, Mary Beth is sure to capture it in her photojournalist style.”
So, while you are here, I invite you to check out my galleries to see examples of my work!

Ok, you should really just do it right now because you know “after the kids go to bed” turns into tomorrow morning and that will turn into next week and that turns into February and before you know it, five more years have slipped by. Yeah, I know, I am a busy Mom, I know how stuff like that happens!
