I grew up in Hagerstown, MD and recently relocated to small town PA with my hunky husband, Cory, and our sweet little man, Callahan. Although, I'll always be a Maryland girl! I wear many hats, my favorite being Mama! Fun fact, I'm a labor and delivery nurse! I love to serve others. I work with the sweetest clients--I especially appreciate those who share my love for Chick-fil-A and snuggling.
You can find my one-eye squinted, forehead pressed against my view finder every day in my home. My all-boy toddler leaping from our couch onto his mattress he insisted I remove from his bed and place on the living room floor. I count to three and he jumps his biggest jump toward me. These are the sweet motherhood memories my heart wants to remember. And if your heart does too, then I’m your girl. My family sessions are nontraditional in that I capture unposed, raw moments between you and your kiddos. I love documenting life just as it is. Those real, intimate moments that make up your every day. I capture the way your heart feels in every season of life.
You're almost finished high school and it's time to celebrate all you've accomplished! I offer a personalized senior portrait experience that truly represents you. I will make you feel comfortable and look beautiful in your senior portraits. I am a natural light photographer and I offer senior sessions that are engaging and fun!
Once you've booked your senior session, you will receive a questionnaire that will allow me to get to know your personality and style! I want to know what's important to you! Along with your questionnaire you will receive an informational e-mail packed with all the details you will need to prepare for your shoot--from professional hair and makeup suggestions to outfit inspiration and how the day will go!
Prior to your senior session, head over to my style Pinterest board to help inspire your outfit selections. When you arrive, we will go through the outfits and accessories you have chosen and make sure you are styled to a tee! Your hair and makeup styling should always be natural, enhancing your natural beauty and making your features POP in photos! When you book your senior session, you will receive my suggestions for local hair and makeup artists who are awesome at what they do and also love working with seniors!
Each year, I select a handful of enthusiastic girls from local high schools to represent my business. Spokesmodels are chosen based on their bubbly and outgoing personalities as well as their involvement in their community. These girls get extra special perks like a styled shoot and a mini session in addition to a full senior session. Meet the gorgeous girls behind the 2017 spokesmodel team below and hear what they have to say about their senior experience.
"Spending time with her boyfriend and family, traveling up and down exploring the East Coast, and watching Washington Capital's play hockey!"
"Karly instantly made me feel comfortable. My photos were absolutely stunning. Karly knows the perfect poses and locations! I would recommend KFP to any upcoming senior who wants a stress free experience. Karly goes above and beyond to ensure you are in love with your photos and have a fun time taking them!"
"Going shopping, drinking coffee and tea, finding new restaurants, traveling, spending time with her boyfriend and studying politics."
“I have had the absolute greatest experience with Karly! She has gone above and beyond as a photographer. Whether it’s her extra mini photo shoots, always bringing adorable props, or overall just being so friendly and fun, I wouldn’t have chosen any other photographer to do my senior pictures. I would recommend Karly Forsyth Photography to anyone!"
"Spending time with my family and friends. Also being with my cheer team, at practices and games!"
"Karly was able to capture certain moments in my senior pictures, which made them turn out fantastic! She's affordable, her locations are super gorgeous and it isn't hard to feel right at home with her. I would recommend KFP to any upcoming senior that wants a different style to their pictures along with a fun time!"
"Being involved in Clear Spring High’s FFA and serving as their Treasurer, being part of Tech High’s Biomedical Science class, playing golf, and doing archery. She also likes spending time with her friends and family, shopping A LOT, and watching Netflix."
Being a spokesmodel for Karly was a terrific experience! Every time we did a shoot she was always so cheerful and acted as if we were best friends. This really made the pictures look so much better because it made everything less awkward. Karly is so easy going and SO SWEET, she would do anything she could to make sure I was pleased with the pictures. All the shoots we did were so much fun and made new friends because of it too!
I have a toddler who doesn’t hold still for pictures, and your kids probably don’t like to either! I encourage interacting with your little ones as they run and play during a family session. This creative approach allows kiddos to be themselves, and also allows me to click my shutter at the most important moments when their little quirks and silliness shine through. I shoot authentic moments from your family framed in glorious light. Images that show the best of parenthood—big bear hugs, gentle forehead kisses and those first two baby teeth that pop through a gummy smile. If those things are important to you too, I’m your girl.
In-home sessions are my favorite because I get to see your family in your element! These sessions are centered around your kiddo’s interests and capturing the sweet every day activities they enjoy. Think about jumping on the bed, building blanket forts, bathing your new baby in the sink and playing dress up! In-home sessions are documentary style, unposed, comfortable and simply you. From one mother to another, let me find and capture those meaningful connections and precious every day moments with the people you love most.
