Hi, I'm Kate & this is my family. I've lived in Maryland all my life and I love it here.  I photograph in the surrounding areas specializing in maternity, newborns through baby's first birthday, children, seniors, family portraiture, small weddings and events. I often feel like I have the best job in the world, which may sound cheesy, but it's the truth, and I'm so thankful to be able to to do what I love.

My love for photography came at a young age and has grown over the years with my experience and schooling through out Maryland. I have over two decades of experience as a portrait photographer and a BS in Fine Art and Photography. Landscapes and portraits are my passion and I strive to capture families in this natural environment. For the past 11 years I've also been working at Anne Arundel Medical Center in Annapolis MD taking the beautiful fresh 48 newborn sessions. Before that I worked for another company for 10 years capturing children's portraits, sports and seniors all over MD, DC, DE, PA, VA and WV. Glad those days of traveling all over the place are over but what I learned from that is what helped me become the photographer I am today. And before all that, I worked in a camera store, processing film, fixing, cleaning and selling cameras. 

When I became a Mom in 2010, it was at that moment my love for photography and capturing my own family, I found what I was meant to do & created KD Bug Photography, LLC. My goal for all my sessions are to provide you with an unforgettable, relaxed & fun experience. Create beautiful lasting memories and high quality portraits for you and your family to treasure.
