August 9, 2017  Pittsburgh Birthday Party Photos It’s no secret that I think having a photographer at your child’s first birthday party is a fantastic idea.  There’s always so much going on; having the peace of mind that someone is there to get all those details you slaved over, the look on the little one’s […]
