Bi Annual Events

Below you will find all of the details for our two main mini session events that take place every year.

The Motherhood Event

Imagine a session that was all about moments with you and your little one. A day of pampering, snuggles and laughter.

The Motherhood Event is a mini event that takes place in late April honoring all mothers.

The day includes wardrobe, professional hair and makeup by The Beauty Box Pgh, an online viewing gallery and more.

The Holiday Event

Come and experience the magic of the holiday season with The Pittsburgh Santa.

Watch as your little ones enjoy the holiday cheer and find their names on Santa's nice list.

Our fourth annual holiday event takes place on the first two weekends of November. Booking opens July 1st, be sure to join the nice list for booking access!


The Motherhood Event

A day of luxury.

Hair, makeup, wardrobe & refreshments.

A stress free portrait experience all about you as a mother with your little ones.

Capturing laughter, hugs and a lifetime of memories.

These moments are here for only that, a moment. This chapter is messy & underappreciated by us because in the thick of it we are exhausted.

But is is also beautiful and extraordinary.

So step on the other side of documenting this season. 

Come experience Motherhood how WE see it.


The Legacy Event is one in the same but even more elegant.

A stress free portrait experience all about you as a mother with YOUR mother snuggled in with your little ones.

Capturing laughter, hugs and generations of memories.

Your mother has been there for every step, every chapter, through all of your life. She has watched you grow into a woman, become a wife and now transform into a mother.

Through all of this she has grown older too. What's grown the most is her love for you and your children.

She won't be in this world forever.  

Come and capture your legacy to live on for lifetimes.

WHAT is THE holiday EVENT

The Holiday Event

A magical Christmas Experience featuring The Pittsburgh Santa.

Come experience the magic of the holiday season with Pittsburgh Santa. Each child enjoys a personalized visit with the big guy in the red suit while capturing timeless images that will last for a lifetime.

Our holiday event specializes in making memories while playing reindeer games, reading Santa’s favorite stories, snowball fights and so much more.

I promise this will be a day your little ones won’t stop talking about for quite awhile.

As a mother of four, I never enjoyed dragging our little ones out to the mall with all of the holiday hustle and bustle, a silly mall Santa, and oh the long lines. I wanted to create a true Christmas experience with the most authentic Santa, something that was MORE than just photos. Where they can ask all of the questions and have the magic of Santa explained.

That is just what I did with the Holiday Event with Pittsburgh Santa!
