Frederick MD personal branding photography by Mary Kate McKenna

“Working with Mary Kate was awesome. When I asked for referrals from friends, I received many recommendations, but it was the clear information on her website and her immediate responses to my questions that swayed me! I met her at her studio in downtown Frederick, and from there, we walked a loop around town. She had already chosen potential locations and mapped them out, so the whole shoot went seamlessly. Right away, I was impressed with her warm manner and clear direction while taking pictures. Our loop was completed in half an hour, perfect timing for someone who is busy and just wants to get “new professional headshots” checked off of the to-do list. Within a week, I had tons of new headshots to choose from, and it was actually really hard to choose since there were so many good ones. I would absolutely recommend Mary Kate!” -Melissa S.

“An eagle eye, Mary Kate captures the emotion, not just the person.” Erin M.

“Mary Kate is my go-to photographer, hands down for all my clients!” Heather B.

“Not only is MK’s work the highest professional quality, her enthusiasm for photography and easy going demeanor make her a joy to work with. From weddings to newborns, commercial work or head shots, she does it all beautifully!” Beth P.

“MK did professional headshots for 2 of us. She found a perfect backdrop in a place we wouldn’t have even thought to look. Our results were great, the process was easy and efficient, and she communicated the whole time.” Merritt B.

“Mary Kate’s reputation precedes her. She is an all around amazing photographer. Wedding photo’s make you wish you had been there to witness the event, family portraits will make you want to book her right away for your next memory investment, and corporate head shots/business photos always impress. She is among the BEST!” Jenn A.

“Mary Kate did a photo shoot for me to have a current headshot for Social Media.I had gone through some major health issues that changed my “look” that I wasn’t pleased with nor adjusting to very well. Mary Kate was awesome in helping me feel better about myself during the shoot. The results of her work pleasantly surprised me. Overall, I considered her part of my healing my spirit team. Still do, still grateful.” Mariana E.

“Mary Kate’s skills are truly a gift. She has captured over 12 years of our life and I have the most precious memories captured by her lens. My late husband adored MK’s work because she always snapped moments that weren’t posed. She has a wonderful eye for lighting and candid, real moments. I’m so thankful to call her a friend, it’s fantastic to see her continue down this path that is so clearly her calling.” Tristan K.
