I’ll always remember flashes of the brilliant spring day I flipped my tassel, received my diploma, and walked across that Penn State stage and into the next chapter of my life. But in all the excitement, so much of it flew by in a blur. It’s unreal how swiftly the vibrancy of life’s biggest accomplishments dulls in the busyness of daily life. But thanks to the photos I’ve captured along the way, I can easily step back in time to experience them all over again! Taking photos of my friends as they popped champagne and twirled in their graduation gowns was as rewarding as accepting my diploma!
In fact, I loved it so much that I turned it into a career! Today, I'm a graduation photographer in Baltimore, MD! I visit campuses across Maryland, D.C., and beyond to preserve the sweet final days before you step out of school and into “the real world.”
Whether you’re accepting your first diploma or your third, fourth, or even fifth, I’d love to tell your story. This moment is too special—and you’ve worked way too hard— to let it slip by undocumented. So, get dressed up, and let’s pop some bubbly as we celebrate everything you’ve achieved and everything still to come!
Graduation Photographer in Baltimore, Maryland
First thing’s first, reach out to me on my contact page to share a few thoughts on your dream grad session! I’ll be back in touch in 48 hours with more information, so you can decide if the experience I offer is the one you’re searching for.
Most CKP grad clients reserve their sessions 1-2 months in advance.
If you decide I’m the right fit for your session, reserve your date by signing a contract and sending along a 50% retainer. Then, the real fun begins…
Next, I’ll share all the tips and tricks you need to prepare for session day. From steaming your gown to discussing how to hit the best spots on campus to picking the right outfit to match your grad gown, I’ll make sure you look picture perfect!
On session day, we’ll enjoy grabbing photos on your campus as you show me around, recounting some of your favorite memories at your alma-mater-to-be. And don’t worry if this is your first time in front of a professional camera! I’ve got all of the tips and tricks you need to look and feel like a model in your photos.
I know you can’t wait to see your photos! So, one week after your session, while I’m still editing the majority of your gallery, I’ll deliver some of the best images from the day right to your inbox. Feel free to share these with friends and family, and on social media!
Finally, four weeks after your session, your full gallery will be ready for you to enjoy! Every cap-throw and champagne-pop will be documented in brilliant color for you to share in every way imaginable—from graduation announcements to that brand new LinkedIn profile to prints your family will proudly hang in your childhood home.
I’ve intentionally tailored my Signature Collection to fit grads who want to document a fun, laid-back session on campus through a breathtaking gallery they’ll always treasure.

"Caity made everything feel so natural and casual while providing enough direction throughout our group and individual shots. I loved her ability to make us all feel comfortable in taking posed and candid shots. "
I recommend booking around three months before your desired session date. My calendar fills fast during spring grad season, so the sooner you reach out to book, the better!
The best grad sessions include one to three grads. This allows plenty of time for those fun-filled group shots, as well as the individual portraits. However, if you have more than two best friends you can’t wait to include in your session, let me know! I’d be happy to help create a custom package for you.
Absolutely! It wouldn’t be a grad session without your cap and gown, so don’t forget to bring them along! If you’d like to include a bottle of champagne or other props, they can make your session even more unique. However, to avoid making a mess for all the other grads, we will only do champagne pops in select locations. And I would recommend avoiding things like glitter or confetti, as we’ll need to clean up behind ourselves before we leave.
I know how busy the lead-up to graduation gets, so I want to take as much of the planning burden off your shoulders as I possibly can. However, your input on locations is vital since you know your campus far better than I do, and we’ll want to pick the locations that mean the most!
I love sessions at Lincoln and the mirror pond, but they require a little extra planning. For these sessions, I’ll apply for a permit (an additional $140 fee) about three weeks in advance. And for the best lighting and fewer tourists, we’ll hit the Mall at sunrise.
She provides a warm and welcoming environment that makes for an easy and effortless photography session.
Her energy is positive and will make you so comfortable during grad pics. Highly recommend!
Caity makes the experience so seamless!
She really brought out the aspects that I like most about myself. Listen to Cait and go for the sunrise photo session! The light was so pretty and there was no one in sight!
Cait made me feel like we’d been friends for years!
Caity knows exactly how to highlight your favorite things about yourself, inside and out. She knows how to make you feel comfortable and confident in front of the camera, the entire experience is so much fun!
I felt so comfortable during my session and it was such a blast!
Ready for a graduation photography experience as thrilling as completing your final exam, but without the pressure that comes with the preparation? You’ve come to the right place! I can’t wait to help you document this exciting chapter effortlessly and enthusiastically!
Just tell me a bit about the session you have in mind, and I’ll take it from there…
