"So I’m not one to normally to write reviews but the experience we had with Mary Beth is totally worth it and I would recommend her to anyone looking for pictures that aren’t overly staged and that capture our family and life at face value! For a family that doesn’t take many pictures she gave us great advice from the start and her pictures were just amazing. I honestly cried over how wonderful her pictures were of our baby and family. She was so helpful through the whole process and I found her work well worth the price. I will definitely be a repeat customer and I can’t wait to work with her again." -Ashley

 

"Mary Beth is such a warm, welcoming soul- she makes you immediately feel like family. She has photographed my family and done newborn sessions. She has a great eye for capturing true, organic family moments. Those are the photos that will melt your heart in years to come; not the stuffy, staged photos full of forced smiles. Mary Beth is a natural and will make you and your family feel relaxed and comfortable, and that lets true personality and affection shine through the beautiful photos she takes."
-Heather

"Such a wonderful, laidback experience and beautiful pictures! We will definitely go to Mary Beth for future family photos!" -Lauren

 

"Mary Beth took our newborn's pictures. The session was so fun, relaxed. She really captured our family beautifully, without us of too many props or weird poses. Highly recommend!" -Lan

 

"I am always blown away by the images Mary Beth captures of our family. I love that she photographs us in our home or favorite spot, and coupled with her personality my kids are SO relaxed and at ease. I am a huge fan of the “lifestyle” photos she takes which captures our true family versus posed fake smiles or chasing kids around a studio. We always end up with an album full of beautiful pictures and not enough wall space to hang how many we fall in love with." -Jordan

"Mary Beth was a joy to work with for our newborn pictures. She put all of us at ease and created a truly relaxed and enjoyable experience. The moments she captured for us in photo and on video are beautiful memories we will cherish forever." -Emily

 

"Mary Beth is AMAZING! She was incredibly flexible and understanding when we had multiple things come up that prevented us from doing the Fresh 48 session. We ended up doing a newborn session when our little one was a little older, Mary Beth came to our house and the whole process was very laid back and comfortable. She captured the most BEAUTIFUL pictures that we'll treasure forever. I cannot praise Mary Beth enough for her work. HIGHLY recommend Mary Beth for any of your photography needs. We will definitely be booking her again in the future :)" -Adriana

 

"We love using Mary Beth Miller for all of family portraits! She is the most laid back photographer that I have met." -Joel

"We had a great experience having Mary Beth as our birth photographer for our first born. She was even helpful to me as I was in labor, getting me water and encouraging me through! She was truly so kind, helpful and professional. She went above and beyond and the pictures turned out beautiful and being back the memories of that day so vividly bringing me to tears!" -Sarah

 

"Mary Beth is an absolute delight. We had the pleasure of hiring her to take photos of the birth of my 2nd daughter. She was professional and very friendly. I hardly knew she was taking photos while I was in labor. The photos/video she was able to capture for us are breath taking; memories that will last a lifetime! They bring happy tears to my eyes every time I look at them. I would not hesitate to recommend her to someone. If you are looking for the perfect photographer give Mary Beth a call. You won’t regret it." -Katie

 

"Mary Beth photographed my family last year. I unreservedly recommend her to anyone looking for someone who is personable, responsible, and focused on capturing REAL moments. I loved our day-in-the-life photos!! As a photographer myself, I am picky about who I invite into our lives... I definitely made the right choice. Thank you, Mary Beth- I will treasure the images!" -Pamela

"Mary Beth did a Fresh 48 session for my recent delivery. This is our first baby, and we knew we wanted to document these beautiful first couple of days while in the postpartum unit. My husband and I were exhausted, and we actually talked about how we sort of regretted scheduling photos due to the stress of trying to look presentable, particularly while I was still recovering. However, we had no regrets from the moment we met Mary Beth. She is friendly, and immediately put our minds at ease. This session wasn’t stressful for us, and she was incredibly kind and considerate if we needed a break. Her work was fantastic. She was able to take gorgeous photos of our little one and flattering family ones with natural light and awesome angles. After the session, she was prompt in sending us our sample files and her mailed packet included all of our pics on a USB, as well as a lovely mini album set. I highly recommend Mary Beth and plan on reaching out to her in the future for other family sessions." -Emily

 

"I love Mary Beth Miller Photography. She is great with the kids and dogs. She captures excellent pictures and I always love them. There has never been a bad photo session, even with 3 kids under 2! We started using her for my first son's newborn pictures in 2014 and have continued to use her at least yearly since then. I can't wait to book a session for this coming year. Mary Beth is worth the money." -Danielle

 

"Mary Beth worked with us for newborn pictures for both of our sons, just 21 months apart. She not only captures beautiful moments with our children and family, but is an absolutely pleasure to spend time with. We took breaks to feed and cuddle the babies when needed. Mary Beth also has a gift for calming babies! We love her photo-journalism style. Both sessions were fantastic and resulted in beautiful memories!!" -Kristen

"I just recently found Mary Beth. I was looking for a photographer who was very engaging because my family is not always photogenic. She did a fantastic job with my family! We have a two year old and she really worked so well engaging her in each shot. Her style is so natural that she really captures the meaning of "family" through her photos. I highly recommend her if you love authentic photographs and someone who works so well with family dynamics!" -Beth

 

"Mary Beth has blessed us with wonderful memories of our family and home through her photography. On two occasions she traveled to us and offered us the most relaxed photography session we have ever experienced and as a result, the photos are the most natural and rich photos we have ever taken. For our first session, our 4 month old baby began to appear ill and Mary Beth was so patient and accommodating, even coming back at a later date to shoot again. We were so grateful for her flexibility and understanding. Our family is soon relocating to the Boston area and having spent only a short time in Pittsburgh, we are blessed to have found Mary Beth. Thanks to her, we are taking with us such beautiful memories of our Pittsburgh home and the time we have spent here with our little one." -Melinda

 

"Mary Beth did such an amazing job with our son's newborn photos. The entire process from start to finish was fantastic and she could not have been better to work with. She came to our house to do an in home newborn session and as first time parents it was so nice to not have to worry about going anywhere. The session was so relaxed and Mary Beth couldn't have been nicer or more patient if our little guy needed a diaper change or just a break. We did very little posing and she really just captured us enjoying our little one as well as plenty of just the baby. We couldn't believe how amazing the photos were - we had so many good ones to choose from! She also includes a video which was such a special added touch. We are so glad we decided to trust Mary Beth with capturing this special time in our lives as we could not have been happier. We will definitely be using her in the future as our family continues to grow and are so grateful to have found a photographer we love!" -Jessica

"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. Plus, and this needs to be said, she is reasonably priced and worth every penny! She was wonderful on the day of our shoot. We had chosen a documentary style session, and we chose a place to meet and then she more or less just let us do our thing. She worked quickly and professionally and I honestly wasn't even sure when she was taking pictures sometimes. ha. But then I saw the photos and she captured moments I didn't even fully remember happened. I was thrilled to the bone with her work and hope to work with her again some time! Thank you Mary Beth! " -Mandy

 

"Mary Beth Miller Photography did an absolutely excellent job taking our daughters pictures. She was 4 months old at the time and she did so good. She worked so well with my daughter, She was so gentle and loving. She did great with allowing us to stop and feed and do diaper changes. She gave us such a great variety of pictures to choose from. She does not go overboard, it is so natural and great. We were able to get some great family shots as well. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a great family and baby and infant photographer. We were blessed to have such a great photographer. " -Jennifer

"Mary Beth captured so many great images of our family and we are over the moon excited about every photo. We had a one year old photo shoot with some family photos thrown in there. Mary Beth was very flexible in working with our evolving time line to meet our daughters needs and was extremely patient throughout the entire process. She shared stories of her own family as we worked through (and waited out) a slightly unhappy baby which made the experience feel more like relaxing with a friend taking pictures than a scheduled photo shoot. She was able to capture both posed and candid images, both which were important to us. She also provided us a few sneak peak photos within a few days to appease our curiosity and provided all photos rather quickly for viewing.

Mary Beth was so wonderful to work with. If you are deciding between her and another photographer look no further, Mary Beth is your answer. You will thank yourself 20 years from now when you have such miraculous photos to enjoy of a treasured time of your life." -Steve

The business side of the experience was also handled extremely well. We paid everything through paypal, the deposit and final payment. There was no pressure to pay on the day of the shoot as her primary focus was taking pictures. Once she received the final payment I was able to download all of our photos and will be sent a USB with the images on it as well. She doesn't push or limit photo usage with a single company, once you get the photos, they are yours although she said she will provide referrals for services if you reach out.

Mary Beth was so wonderful to work with. If you are deciding between her and another photographer look no further, Mary Beth is your answer. You will thank yourself 20 years from now when you have such miraculous photos to enjoy of a treasured time of your life." -Steve
