I am the owner and lead photographer of Kate McCord Photography.  I absolutely love capturing these moments for you. Newborn babies grow so quickly! Photographing your growing family is a true honor for me. My goal is to create timeless memories for you from bump to baby and beyond! 

My Newborn Photography Studio is located in Etters, Pennsylvania. My Newborn Photography Studio is located conveniently off I-83 and is close to Harrisburg, York, Mechanicsburg, and Lancaster. It's an easy drive from Baltimore or other locations just over the Maryland line. I’ve been photographing newborns and babies for over 5 years now and I love every minute of it!

I specialize in Newborn & Maternity photography. I am so honored to be entrusted to document these early moments of your family. I treat every session as if I was the one receiving the memories and my goal is to become your lifelong family documentarian. I am so happy you're here and I cannot wait to work together!

Hi, I'm Kate!


let's do this!


my approach to your harrisburg
motherhood sessions

When you're searching for a Harrisburg photographer to capture those special motherhood moments, it's crucial to find someone who not only makes you feel at ease but also brings out the genuine love you share with your family. Picture yourself smiling, laughing, and simply enjoying the entire photo session. Trust is key, and I aim to not just be your photographer but a friend you can rely on completely.

If you're after a photographer who combines a delightful sense of fun with a photography style that resonates with you for a lifetime, then look no further – you've landed on the perfect website.

Rest assured, I take the lead during each couple or family portrait session, armed with a mental checklist for those must-have shots and a repertoire of the best (or worst!) dad jokes tucked away. The experience will be filled with continuous enjoyment, just as it should be.

"Can’t recommend Kate enough. (Photographing) an infant & twin toddlers is no easy task but she handled our family with confidence, ease and fun. Our girls loved her...! Being new to the area I was concerned about finding someone but I’m so grateful we found Kate. She will be shooting our family for all things in the future! She’s truly gifted and you can tell she just loves what she does. Thank you Kate!"


Kate was an absolute delight to work with. I have three little girls with BIG spirits and personalities and man did she capture them all. To some, it may feel overwhelming and chaotic, but she somehow made us feel like our family dynamic was a strength!...Photos with three little kids could feel like an absolute crazy endeavor but the simplicity of having our clothes picked out for us, Kate’s personality, and the environment she creates made it an experience we will forever cherish.


Each and every experience with Kate has been so comfortable, accommodating, and easy going- especially with young kids. We will cherish these photos forever. I look forward to working with Kate in capturing our family’s moments for years to come.
