If there's one thing to know about. me, it's that my family is my number one priority. Everything I do is with them in mind. 

Beyond that, I am a mom of 3, an IVF warrior, a wife, a friend, a Swiftie, a beach addict, a tattoo junkie and a cat lover.  I love photography to my core and still get excited every time I get behind the camera.  I grew up in Southern York County and I'm now raising my own family in York County as well.  

"I whole heartedly feel that family photos are such an important part of your family's story. To be cherished in the present and passed down for years to come."

I'm here to be your guide and friend to deliver you the family and newborn photography experience of your dreams. 

I've been photographing families & newborns "officially" since 2019, but honestly I've been a photographer for as long as I can remember. Even as a kid, I was the official photographer of everything. Always taking pictures, whether it was using a disposable camera or my very first digital camera in 8th grade. I even majored in Communications Media in college (IUP alum here!) Since then, I've been named a Master Family Photographer by the National Association of Professional Child Photographers and "Simply the Best" Photographer by Harrisburg Magazine. 

So go ahead, send me that message! I would love to capture your family and become your forever photographer! (No pressure, we can start slow with just one session!)

Kate has taken the most incredible photos of my kids (who are not always super cooperative). Using the client closet was so helpful too. We will cherish the pictures forever!

Kate is truly amazing at what she does. We have worked with her three times now for family photos. Her photos always feel authentic and warm. She has great energy with the kids too, and is great at keeping them engaged when they have a lot of excitement and energy.

Kate was on the ball and had all the poses planned. It was the smoothest 10 minutes of parenthood I’ve experienced in a long time LOL. The photos were turned around super quickly and are absolutely perfect. She really captured our blended family so well. I couldn’t be happier. 10/10 would definitely recommend. ❤️
