Abby Gleason Photography + Design

To me, nothing is more beautiful than real life. Through my lifestyle photography, I capture the candid, natural moments of children, couples and families in the greater Pittsburgh area and travel across the U.S. The giggles and smiles that happen outside in the sunshine, not in a studio, make images that truly represent a person and the dynamics between people. Whether it's a Saturday afternoon at the park with the kids, or a small and elegant wedding, I will grab those real moments with my camera and freeze them for you to cherish always.

Abby has been our family photographer since my husband and I first got engaged.

Working with Abby is so pleasant. We are not models, in fact, we are incredibly shy individuals who often feel awkward when a camera gets pulled-out in social situations. Imagine our delight when Abby was able to cajole the very best out of us! Her sessions were fun, enjoyable even, and we watched her work with our elderly parents, our baby daughter, even our pets, with ease. She captured our family, but more importantly she captured US.     --Amelia
