I'm Kate, New Jersey Photographer

Welcome, Mama

It’s time to celebrate you and the miraculous journey of motherhood you're on.

You've found the right place. 

That's where I come in as your dedicated motherhood photographer. I understand the importance of preserving these precious memories, and I'm here to guide you through every step of the process. From meticulously planning and styling your photoshoot to effortlessly executing it, my goal is to create a timeless collection of photos that show the raw beauty and pure love of this stage in your life.

Together, let's freeze these cherished moments in time, so you can revisit them whenever you need a reminder of the incredible journey you've embarked upon. Because every milestone, every laugh, and every tear is a testament to the extraordinary love that defines motherhood.

Whether you’ve had an easy journey to motherhood - or one filled with twists and turns - I’m so happy you’re here, considering me to photograph this amazing chapter in your life.

From the first flutter of anticipation to the tender moments cradling your newborn, motherhood is filled with emotions that can be overwhelming and joyous all at once. Trust me - I know.

As an expecting mom, a new mom navigating the uncharted waters, or a seasoned mom with multiple little ones in tow, you're juggling a myriad of responsibilities and emotions.

Amidst the whirlwind of sleepless nights and endless diaper changes, it's easy to forget to pause and capture the magic of these fleeting moments.

My journey mirrors the way I serve you

Besides being a Photographer, I'm also a Mom, Wife, and Registered Nurse

I have been a professional photographer for 10 years, with the majority of those years focusing on newborns and families, and a nurse for 11 years with experience caring for patients ranging in age from 5 months to 90+ years old.

It wasn’t until having my son, however, that I realized how incredible the bond and connection between mother and child truly is. Due to a bumpy newborn period, it took me 9 months after having him to get in front of my own camera with my son and while I desperately wish I had done it sooner, those photos of the two of us are some of my most prized possessions.

None of us ever knows what life will give us tomorrow. After a cancer diagnosis for my husband, a road to motherhood for me that didn't look quite as expected, and learning that my sweet baby boy had Down syndrome, I have learned to appreciate the slow, quiet moments and the connections with my 2 favorite people.  

Because of this, I approach every session with extra love, patience, and understanding. I focus on the special bond that you have with your family and all of the things about them that you want to remember forever. And I celebrate and honor the road it took to get to where you are.

A note to my fellow special needs and NICU Mamas:

Oh, Mama... I've been there.

Right where you are now.

Trying your hardest to celebrate this incredibly fleeting, but intensely terrifying time.

All while praying that you are making the right choices, trying desperately to remember all of the appointments, diagnoses, terminology, and mourning the loss of the "normal" that you were expecting.

I remember sitting on my floor rocking my sweet baby boy and having to talk myself into even doing "newborn" photos. He had been in the NICU and was already 5 weeks old - no longer a "newborn" . He still had his NG tube in and I wasn't sure I wanted that to be the focus of his photos. 

But I did them anyway. I reminded myself that he wasn't going to be getting any younger or smaller, and that the tube was a very real, very important part of his story as fighter, and a part of our story as his parents. 

I am SO glad that I have those photos to show him when he grows up - to show him just how incredible he's been since the day he was born.

If you have had a NICU stay, or are a special needs parent who's child requires some extra patience or equipment - please do not hesitate to reach out to me about a session. Not only do I have experience as a NICU and special needs mother myself, but I am also a nurse with experience in working with a variety of medical equipment, and I have been certified by The capABLE Community. I would love to speak with you, and I would be honored to be the one to help tell the story of your family's amazing strength and worth.

Kate was absolutely wonderful to work with and I could not recommend her more. During a very vulnerable and fragile time for most people, Kate made us feel so comfortable and took such care during our session to capture the priceless memories of our 5 week old baby girl.  Hands down – the best photographer I have worked with and her photographs are stunning. We cannot thank her enough for these captured memories.

If you are looking for the most magical, sweet family photos - work with Kate! From the day we first met, Kate put me at ease and got me truly excited for our family shoot. Kate helped style our shoot and selected a beautiful dress for me to wear from her client closet. As a mom, it was so much fun to feel pampered before our photos!  I truly feel that Kate captured a moment in time for our family. We will cherish these photos forever.

When I came across Kate’s page I knew she would understand my vision and she definitely did not disappoint!  She is the sweetest and made us feel so comfortable. She has a beautiful client wardrobe which made it so stress free for me. She was so patient and the session did not feel rushed at all, you can truly tell that she cares about her clients and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. I’m so glad I chose her! I can’t recommend Kate enough!
