Hey there! I'm Mary Kate, but most people just call me MK. I've been a lifestyle photographer in the DC, Maryland, and Northern Virginia area for 19 years and counting. I specialize in lifestyle family photography and in-home newborn photography sessions. You'll also find me photographing micro weddings, elopements as well as memorial services. The other half of my business, UnCorporate Headshots, is dedicated to un-boring business portraits.

One of the most rewarding parts of my job is watching couples, families, and businesses grow. I love when I meet an engaged couple and a few years later I'm photographing their babies. It's truly an honor and I have a passion for documenting these milestones.
