Wow it’s hard to believe that Spring is HERE???? Well it is in my studio, as we created just for you, a complete garden set up in FULL BLOOM! Oh yes, my in-studio set design is blooming and you won’t find that in this Pittsburgh weather, until late May. That is why I like to bring Spring inside so that your children enjoy looking for butterflies or petting our studio bunny “CoCo”, while I capture some of those magical moments. Moments that are sure to bring a smile to your face and a work of art into your home.

You may be thinking “could I photograph a family portrait in the garden”? Or perhaps adults or pets? YES of course you may!!!  Bring the whole family and your pets as I know that pets are a part of our families!  Oh and if you are worried about the boys in the garden… well I also have props like garden tools and fishing poles and wheelbarrows. I provide outfits such as tutus, overalls, fairy and angel wings or you may bring your own wardrobe.

Other than being “People’s Choice Silver”  through the “Tribune Review’s People’s Choice Awards 2014” and the Photographer of the Year for the Tri State Area through Triangle Photographer’s Association PPA print competition, this is what truly sets me apart from some other studios out there.  With my graphic art background, I bring your photos to life while giving you and your children an amazing experience! Because I schedule by appointment only, I will spend about 1-2 hours with you creating different posing, unique from some of the other chain studios. Oh and I am your photographer, I have over 30 years of experience behind the lens.  I am not a cookie cutter type studio.  I care about how you and your family look and I care about the quality of your finished prints. All of my work is printed by professional quality labs. The images that you receive are on acid free quality paper, metal, wood or canvas and guaranteed to last a lifetime. I do not print from the computer printers because some of the computer inks will not last a lifetime and will fade in time!

However, if Gardens just aren’t your thing, well then I have many different trendy backgrounds of which to choose from or you may have me photograph in your home or on location, just about anywhere. Please fell free to call me and just ask, as I am always happy to consult with my customers and friends. Oh and yes there are special package prices for the garden so if you are looking for a beautiful portrait of your loved ones to hang on your wall and/or Canvas Gallery Wraps, jewelry, license plates, iPhone covers, beautiful books, please call and inquire as I want to give you an opportunity to see what it is that makes MBK Photography so popular!

People have been asking me a lot lately about purchasing their images on CD and here is my thought…. Personally, I do require a package purchase first. The images you have selected for your package are then available for purchase just as a print were purchased from my price list. quantity pricing is also available.  I like that you have professional prints because my heart aches at the thought of my digital files printed in a less than quality lab (you know where I mean) or left on a CD sitting in a drawer, or worse, getting lost and never seeing the light of day. I want to do what is best for all of us.

Just remember that photographs do make wonderful Easter Gifts, communion portraits and Mother’s day gifts...think of a beautiful mom and child/children portrait to give to your mom for mother’s day!  Call before April 5th to schedule a Spring session and I will give you half off the session fee and 20% off any of my packages.  Bring in a box of diapers to help the Western PA Diaper Bank and pay NO SESSION FEE!  412-229-8749  http://www.mbkphotos.com

PS: grandma’s like prints on their walls and not digital files so much…just a thought as we make beautiful brag books too!







Happy Spring!!!
