Hi there! My name is Pam Nafziger, and I'm an on-location children's and family custom portrait photographer from southwestern Pennsylvania who relocated to the Lake Keowee area of South Carolina (but continues to do sessions in Washington & Allegheny Counties back in PA). I started Casual Moments Photography in 2004.

I specialize in helping you to get that photo session of your family that you've always wanted, but never quite scheduled because you were a little intimidated by all of the details. I help you every step of the way, from scheduling it for a time that works the best for you, to help with what to wear, to a casual stress-free session despite having unpredictable kids, to certainty that I will pose you in the most flattering ways so that you will LOVE your images!

I do sessions at my home on the lake, but I do on-location work anywhere in the upstate area including Clemson, Anderson, Greenville, and as far north as the Highlands and Cashiers areas of NC. I make frequent trips back to Pennsylvania near McMurray PA and to the Olney MD area (where my children live) for clients.

My style is clean classic outdoor casual portraiture, with true color and the focus on the eyes. Although I love Pinterest, I believe that professional portraiture should look timeless and upscale, not homemade.

To see examples of my work, click on the PORTFOLIO link on the menu bar above. If you like what you see and want to know more about what I offer, click on DETAILS. If you have any questions or wish to schedule a session, contact me any way that works for you - I would love to talk with you!

Trinity High School Senior Pictures Washington PA | then and now

July 31st, 2015 , Posted in High School Senior Portraits, Mingo Creek County Park photography, Trinity High School senior portraits, Washington PA photographer by Pam

You’d better be nice to your little brother, because one day he might grow up to be your BIG brother!

Trinity High School Senior Pictures Washington PA

The image on the left was taken at Evan’s senior session in 2009, and the one on the right was taken at Mac’s senior session just two weeks ago – both at Mingo Park. It’s my favorite place to take Trinity High School senior pictures! I’ll be showing more from this and other senior sessions soon. I have a few spots remaining if you are interested in outdoor portraits of your high school senior.

Canon McMillan High School Senior Photography | then & now

July 29th, 2015 , Posted in Canon McMillan High School senior portraits, Canonsburg PA photographer, High School Senior Portraits, Outdoor natural light photography by Pam

Sneak peek….because in the blink of an eye, it’s senior picture time!


If you have a Canon McMillan High School Senior that needs pictures, call or email me today…I only have a few spots left! I specialize in outdoor natural light portraiture because I love the fresh beauty of it. I believe that high school seniors are stunning simply because of their youth and vitality, and I shy away from the fashion-model type of shoots, with excessive makeup and glamour posing. My focus is on capturing their true personalities!

Lake Jocassee Photography – family session peek

July 4th, 2015 , Posted in Cashiers NC photography, Extended Family Photography, Family photography, Lake Keowee SC Photographer by Pam

Just a quick peek of one from a session on Lake Jocassee, done during a family vacation…love the light we had that day!


I will be showing more from this session soon. If your family will all be together vacationing on Lake Jocassee or on Lake Keowee this summer, consider celebrating and preserving the memory by booking a professional photo session. Large groups of people are difficult to photograph properly without a lot of experience, and the value of hiring a professional is apparent.

You can find out more about extended family sessions here. Call me at 724-986-2625 or email me to discuss your needs and check availability!

Bethel Park PA Outdoor Family Photographer | what a difference

June 25th, 2015 , Posted in Bethel Park PA photographer, Children's photography, Family photography, Mingo Creek County Park photography by Pam

Here’s a sneak peek from a fabulous outdoor photo session two weeks ago. Our previous session was in 2007….eight years ago. That was just before I moved to Lake Keowee in SC. In terms of my move, it sure doesn’t feel like it’s been 8 years. I still feel like I’m on vacation here instead of permanently settled. It feels like eight DAYS instead of years! But when I saw these girls again, it became VERY apparent that a lot can happen in eight short years.

Little girls grow up.


Can’t wait to show more from this session soon!
