Harrisburg maternity Photographer

Capturing the Journey: Celebrating Motherhood Through the Lens

Why pregnancy photos? What is so special about maternity pictures?
As a mom of three myself in the Harrisburg area, I can assure that pregnancy is a beautiful time in your life and it won't last forever. (I know it might seem like it! I promise, it ends and it's *so* worth the wait!)

Your maternity session will focus on you and your growing bump in either my studio or at a thoughtfully scouted location in Central PA. Want to include your husband and kids (fur & human) too? I can assure you that we will make the entire session fun, full of cheesy dad jokes and silly laughs.  You'll choose a gown (or two) from my carefully curated client closet and we will have the best time together. 

Studio & On Location Maternity Sessions


Let me show you how beautiful you truly are! With a wide variety of flattering maternity gowns, stunning locations around Harrisburg and beyond, and tips/tricks for posing...not only will you feel amazing you will see how amazing you look rocking that baby bump too! 

My calendar does often book out well in advance, so I recommend booking your maternity & newborn sessions as soon as you're sure we're a great fit. 

Really want to level up your look? Hair & make up services can be added on to your session as well. 

EXPERIENCE the beauty of your harrisburg maternity session

let's do this!


Congratulations on your pregnancy! Reach out to me to get the conversation started about reserving your session date. Some mamas contact me as soon as they find out they're expecting, but most mamas book around the end of their first trimester. The best time to capture your bump is between 28-32 weeks of pregnancy, while your bump is nice & round but before you get too uncomfortable. Planning ahead allows you time to choose the perfect dress from my client closet and decide on the best location for your session.

I hate to keep you waiting, so shortly after your session I'll share a sneak peek or two with you. Then it'll take me a few days to go through and deliver a proofing gallery of the best images to you. From here, you'll choose YOUR favorite images to be edited. Once you choose your favorites, I meticulously hand edit each image. This part takes a little longer and you'll have your finished gallery around 2-3 weeks after your session. You'll receive your images in an online gallery where you can download the high resolution images & order prints/products of your beautiful family.

Depending on the session type you choose, you'll arrive at my cozy studio in Wormleysburg, PA or I'll meet you at one of the locations in the guide I will have sent you prior to your session.

We'll take it slow, ensuring every detail is just right. I want you to fully embrace the moment. I will guide you through poses and prompts to ensure you're comfortable and feeling incredible. While the session is filled with joy, my goal is to create a sense of peace for you. Your little one will be here before you know it!

I decided I wanted to have maternity photos and Kate came highly recommended so I reached out and she was able to schedule me. She made my maternity shoot easy and delivered stunning photographs that I will forever cherish. 


Kate is extremely personable with a bubbly personality! She even took the time to make sure my husband and I got to the location we picked without a hitch...All of the tools she provides...are extremely helpful and what makes her stick out from the rest... I would recommend her to anyone...


Kate made it really easy and convenient for my wife & I to pick the time and location for our maternity photo session. It was extremely fun and laid back, which is just the way we envisioned it...She stressed that it's the belly's time to shine & it was exactly that. Would recommend Kate's photography services and will be using her for our newborn photos as well.


We have been using Kate to take our pictures since 2019 and she has always done a wonderful job! The pictures always turn out beautiful and my favorite part is that she always posts previews within a few hours of the session! She also has a great patience with little ones which we appreciate a lot 😊 we can’t wait for more sessions with Kate!
