This family is another that I have been lucky enough to capture their milestones, special moments, and now their newest addition to the family – a baby girl! Mom and Dad didn’t want to find out the gender of the baby ahead of time, so when she arrived they were surprised and excited to welcome another daughter. Her big sister is very proud as well! I loved seeing the two sisters together. It reminded me of seeing photos of my sister and myself when we were little. Actually, this sweet baby girl was born on my sister’s birthday!
I enjoyed every moment of this session. I hope you love it too!
The first time I met this lovely little lady, she was only two months old! Even though the past year was full of changes and growing, one thing remains the same – she is just beautiful! For her one year portraits, we started off at Hartwood Acres Mansion and finished with a smash cake at home with big sister and Grandma.
Enjoy this brand new one year old baby girl! 🙂
I have been anxiously awaiting this baby’s arrival since this summer when his mom and I first spoke about photographing his first year. In September, I met this baby boy’s mom and dad for maternity portraits. I could just tell how loved this little baby was before he was even born. His mom and dad are absolutely thrilled to be parents. Photographing the first year of this baby’s life is going to be wonderful!
Meet their precious baby boy.
These three kiddos were great to photograph! They are cousins and but more importantly friends. The two older children are brother and sister. The younger little guy is their cousin. It was fun to watch these three in action. That morning, there was a lot of giggling and smiling. Take a look, the photos speak for themselves.

I have had such a great time seeing so many families that I haven’t seen for either months or even a year! It is really exciting to watch each family change and grow. I am truly honored when a family returns for more portraits.
Last year, I met this family for the first time to take some holiday photos. I am sure you have seen their family portrait around on my Facebook page or on here for my mini session advertisements. Their love for one another and their happiness definitely shows! One of the many reasons for their happiness is that they are expecting a baby this spring! I am thrilled for them. The next time I see them, they will be a family of four. Until then . . .
Working on the Railroad | Pittsburgh Child Portrait Photographer – Child Photo Session | Emily Hixon Photography
This little guy just turned two! His birthday was on Thanksgiving this year. Right now, he is all about trains – specifically Thomas! For his session, we headed to the railroad. Although we didn’t see any trains, he did not seem at all disappointed. A little bribery (Goldfish crackers) and his favorite toy (Thomas) made him forget that he was even being photographed. Wait until you see the last photo of him climbing and reaching for a Goldfish cracker on top of a concrete slab.
Check out this brand new two year old 🙂
Pictures with Emily | Pittsburgh Child Portrait Photographer – Child Photo Session | Emily Hixon Photography
A few weeks ago, I met with little Miss Ella and her mom! The last time I saw Ella was early spring of this year. It is amazing how much she has grown over the last several months! She went from a baby to a little girl so quickly! When her mom told her that I was taking her pictures, she said she wanted to make a drawing for me. It has to be the most adorable “client” gift I have ever received. She was so excited about having her pictures taken that she went home and said to her dad when she walked in the door “Dad, pictures with Emily!!” I can’t wait to see Ella, her mom and dad again soon when they welcome their new baby!
Don’t you love this?? 🙂

At the Top of the Hill | Pittsburgh Family and Child Portrait Photographer – Family Photo Session | Emily Hixon Photography
I met this family for the first time one year ago. It is amazing how much changes in such a short period of time! Since we last met, they have had a baby and moved to a new home! Needless to say, it has been an exciting and whirlwind year for them. We met for a mini session recently at a local park. I was very excited to meet their newest addition to the family! This adorable baby boy was unbelievably calm and alert (just wait until you see his full head of hair and big blue eyes)! His big brother absolutely adores him and their mom and dad could not be happier.

I just adore this family. They are equally as beautiful on the inside as they are on the outside! You may remember them from some of my previous posts. I was excited to see them again for a fun fall mini session on yet another comfortable fall day. It was hard to believe how much their little guy has grown over the past year! He already seems like such a little guy who is full of life and energy! Every time we wanted a smile from him, we faked a sneeze (achoo!). Can’t wait to see this family again in the spring!
Sweet Sisters | Pittsburgh Child Portrait Photographer – Child Photo Session | Emily Hixon Photography
Have you ever really wanted to do something but found that no matter how much you try something keeps you from getting there? That’s exactly what happened with this session. After rescheduling three times, we finally made this session happen! The stars aligned and everything went smoothly! Not only are these two sisters just gorgeous, they are so much fun. With the help of their awesome mom, we had a fantastic session! Enough from me, the photos speak for themselves!
Golden Glow | Pittsburgh Family Portrait Photographer – Family Photo Session | Emily Hixon Photography
My job has to be one of the best in the entire world. I am truly blessed to be able to meet and photograph so many beautiful, kind and loving people! It never gets old. This family session was fun and full of energy. These two kiddos kept mom, dad and myself on the go! The golden setting sun and the colorful leaves on the trees were to die for on that cozy fall evening. One word for these portraits – love.
This last minute session was a lot of fun! The leaves were really starting to change and the weather was perfect. We went to North Park’s Boathouse for some pretty fall portraits of this baby girl and her mama. These two ladies live in Texas but came back to PA to visit with family and enjoy some of the foliage. After searching high and low for the perfect fall tree, we came across the most beautiful one with vibrant yellow leaves!
Enjoy these two pretty ladies! 🙂
Good Day, Sunshine | Pittsburgh Family Portrait Photographer – Fall Family Photo Session | Emily Hixon Photography
Last weekend was filled with photo sessions! It was a perfect fall weekend for portraits. When I last saw this family, it was early in the spring. Doesn’t time just fly? Even though it was definitely a chilly morning, it was clear and sunny. I loved photographing these three. See why below:

The last time I saw this family, I had a great time photographing these two sweet sisters at home. When their mom contacted me about a fall family session, I was thrilled! The morning of the session, I woke up to a surprise rain shower! Thankfully, the morning clouds cleared and the sun started shining by early in the afternoon. You will just love this beautiful family.
You Are My Sunshine | Pittsburgh Baby and Family Portrait Photographer – One Year Old Baby Photo Session | Emily Hixon Photography
Only six months ago, I met this beautiful and loving family. During the last six months, I have come to know and enjoy spending time with them. Have you ever felt like a person or a group of people were brought into your life for a reason? I feel that way about this family. It has been a complete joy to watch and capture the baby and her big sister as they grew. Amazing what a difference just six months can make!
I am sad to say that as quickly as this family came into my life, they are already leaving! They are headed back to their home state soon. Even though I hate to see them leave, I am happy that they are making their way back home. This final session was on the baby girl’s first birthday! She looked completely adorable in her dress and tutu. Of course, what one year old session would be complete without a smash cake? Wait until you see how cute her smash cake looked!
Enjoy this lovely family and the birthday girl.
After returning from a week at the beach, I was greeted by this perfect new little guy. He was calm and definitely cooperative. This cutie is going to be a heart-breaker. I absolutely love the way his hair just naturally forms into a mohawk! His mom and dad are completely in love with him and I can see why 🙂
This little man just turned one! He is full of life and happiness. He is curious and funny. He loves his mama and his blankey.
The first time I photographed this little guy we got rained on! Thankfully, we were able to try again. This time we were given a beautiful evening filled with nice light and a warm breeze. I think we remembered me and worked on his posing. He was not camera shy! Wait until you see his posing and his big brown eyes (they’re to die for)!
Enjoy this handsome baby boy 🙂
Oh how I adore newborn sessions. Babies are my weak point, especially newborns! I am so lucky to be able to call doing this my job…
Big brother is just adorable too!
As a photographer, it is truly amazing to get an intimate look into the lives and love of others. I met this sweet baby girl a few months ago when she was six months old. She is so pleasant and adorable. Seeing her grow and change has been really fun! Little Miss A. is smiling, laughing, standing and teeter-tottering about. She just adores her older sister and loves her mom and dad.
I cannot wait to see her in another three months for her first birthday! Enjoy this precious baby girl.
Spring is here, the trees and flowers are blooming, the grass is green, and the sun is shining! We could not have asked for a more gorgeous morning for a mini session last week. It was nearly 80 degrees and sunny.
Just a short time ago, I held a mini session giveaway contest on my Facebook page and blog. The winner was a familiar face! I saw this precious baby girl and her mom in November for some holiday portraits. Although it doesn’t seem that long ago, I could certainly tell that little Ella has been busy growing over the last few months!
She was dressed in her spring colored shirt and hair bow with the cutest little pink threaded jeans which were finished off with the a brand new pair of spring sandals! I absolutely loved her sandals, but she did not care for her sandals much. Her poor little toes kept getting wet from the dewy grass and collecting dirt from the ground. Once she was cleaned up, she was good to go!
Enjoy this sweet spring baby 🙂
This little guy is turning 2! He is smart, funny, and full of energy. With a little help from Mom and Dad, some fun play apples, a chair just his size, and his favorite thing – the table, we made this session fun! This little man is full of smiles and laughter. His white blonde hair and bright blue eyes are to die for! What a handsome little guy. I think that everyone had fun, even the family’s dog!
I absolutely loved photographing this almost two year old. Happy early birthday little man!
Enjoy these adorable images!
