At Pearly Kate Photography we pride ourselves in being a full-service photography studio that helps our clients from the beginning to the end. From pre-planning your session, capturing your portraits to creating custom framed artwork and heirloom albums, we are here for you!
Our studio is located in beautiful, downtown Frederick and offers as a wonderful backdrop for headshots, portraits, family sessions, in-person consultations, and ordering sessions. Our versatile space features an 8ft backdrop, professional lighting, a brick accent wall, and samples of the premium-quality products we offer.
I grew up in Long Island, NY, and attended Ithaca College where I studied Holistic Studies: Creative Writing, Dance and Spirituality. I moved to Maryland in 2012 and now reside in Walkersville, MD with my sweet son, Kai.
Since I was a child, I had a dream of being a photographer and in 2014 I finally went for it.....and I will never look back!
I have had a passion for photography from the start and I believe photos can be an incredibly meaningful and valuable way to capture each season of life.
To me photography is so much more than just showing up and taking pictures. I believe in building relationships and investing time to get to know my clients---I am such a people person! I find this first step is essential in creating a truly personalized photography experience.
I can't wait to get to know you!
