Meet Mary Beth

Hey there! It's me, Mary Beth Miller and I photograph babies and families all over the Pittsburgh area.

However, I am not like most family photographers. When I photograph your family I'll tell you to dress comfortably in your favorite clothes and I'll ask you to NOT look at the camera. Unlike most photographers, I will not pose you or do a song and dance to get your kids to smile. I'd rather you all just have fun and be your beautifully imperfect selves. And most importantly, I do my very best to make it a fun and stress free experience!

Hi there! It's me, Mary Beth Miller!

I photograph babies and families all over the Pittsburgh area. However, I am not like most family photographers. When I photograph your family I am going to tell you to dress comfortably in your favorite clothes and I'll tell you to NOT look at the camera. Unlike most photographers, I will not pose you or do a song and dance to get your kids to smile. I'd rather you all just have fun and be your beautifully imperfect selves. And most importantly, I do my very best to make it a fun and stress-free experience!

 

 

When I'm not photographing families you can find me on our farm hanging out with my husband, three sons, two dogs or 50 chickens (yes, I may be one of those crazy chicken ladies). You can scroll down to see photos of my family but my life is far from picture perfect. With raising three boys, running a business and farm work, my life is often full of chaos, imperfection and messiness. But I really can't imagine life being any other way!

 

I love looking at old family albums to relive the memories that each image holds. Those photos remind of the things in my childhood that I may have never remembered if there was not a photograph of it. I love that a photo of a loved one that has passed can spark memories of how they laughed, gave the best bear hugs or sang Elvis songs in the kitchen at 6am. It's my goal to create images for you that will fill your heart with wonderful memories.

 

 

Listen, I know booking a photo session for your

family can be overwhelming and scary!

 

I know that you're worried that your husband may not be thrilled about it and you're already concerned about how the kids will behave. I know that you're thinking that you want to wait until a better time, after you get in shape or loose a few pounds or after this phase of 3 year old temper tantrums passes.

I also know that you will regret putting it off. Next summer turns into 5 years later and your oldest is getting taller than you or your baby is not a baby anymore. I know this because even as a photographer, I waited EIGHT years and THREE kids before I finally booked a session for my family.

 

I REALLY regret not doing it sooner.

 

I know the stress behind preparing for a (typical) family photo session so my goal is to make this as stress free as possible. It will be a fun experience for your whole family! Our session will take place in the comfort of your home or we can meet at a location that your family loves and is familiar with.

Your session will feel like any other fun and relaxing afternoon hanging out with your family. There is no need to feel the pressure to perform or to be camera ready. You will forget that you're even being photographed and no one has to look into the camera to say cheese!
