Powder Blue Photography

Pittsburgh, PA Photographer

Hi there!  My name is Missy Timko and I am a portrait photographer at Powder Blue Photography in Pittsburgh, PA.  I specialize in newborns, families, babies, and children.  I also shoot headshots and corporate projects and teach photography workshops at my studio.  My photography style is simple, clean, and natural, with an emphasis on genuine and natural expressions that exemplify your family's relationships.

Newborn Photography

I have a unique and modern style of photography that is usually referred to as "lifestyle photography."  This is not a style that uses props and baskets, but rather I will pose your family and your baby in a way that is flattering and beautiful, but in a way that feels more natural. I seek out gorgeous light and sometimes create it with a combination of window lights and lightweight, unobtrusive strobe and/or continuous light sources.

Family Portraits

I love to do family portraits outside whenever possible!  I have a great list of locations throughout the Pittsburgh area, with your choice of urban or natural locations.  I am always up for shooting in a unique and interesting spot, so get in touch with your ideas!

My family portraits show genuine joy and happiness because I will do everything possible to make this a fun and low-stress experience for you and your family.  We will plan your session together and incorporate all of your goals, or you can sit back and let me take care of everything!
