Welcome to Deborah Kocan Photography, a uniquely different approach to newborn, child & family photography! I strive to offer you a stress free, laid back & fun experience resulting in creative, high-quality, unique portraits! My sessions take place in either my comfortable, professional home studio or outdoors at a location that meets your vision. I will help you choose the perfect location for your session based on the look and feel you desire for your portraits. I know many beautiful locations - both urban and scenic - in the greater Pittsburgh area. Questions about wardrobe and styling? Please ask! I am happy to assist in suggesting the perfect complimenting clothing for your children or family. Worried about time? Don't be! My sessions have no time restrictions, so your little ones will have time to warm-up to being photographed. We will laugh, sing and play... and make your session memorable & magical for everyone!

I have over 100 studio backdrops to choose from, plus tons of eve-changing fun props in the studio! When you schedule a session with me, you are welcome to use all of my unique goodies! Prefer a more classic style? No problem! I love classic portraiture as well as creative styled shoots! Posed or candid, you will receive an array of poses and arrangements in your final gallery.  All sessions include a complimentary 2-week private online proofing gallery, where you will choose your favorite images and place your print and/or product order. My a’la carte ordering menu provides you with the ability to purchase exactly what you desire, without being pigeonholed into a package of things you do not want. Prints, custom fine-art wall hangings, digital files, and a variety of additional custom products are available for purchase. The convenient online ordering system allows your family & friends to place their own individual orders, pay online, and ship to their own homes, eliminating the burden on a single family member to collect orders and payments. You will love your experience and the memories we capture!
