I like to keep things simple because not only is your life busy enough raising little humans, but the whole experience is way more enjoyable when you don't have to pick and choose through your own family photos.
With over 16 years of experience and hundreds (and hundreds) of families photographed, I've learned how our family photos only increase in value as our children grow. Together, we are documenting a little snippet of your life, and you deserve to have them all.

I am SO happy I listened to Kim and did some photos in our home. I love them so much, even more than the ones we did outside, which is what I thought I wanted.

Thanks to Kim's photos, I will always have proof of the beauty in the day to day home life with small kiddos!

Part of what makes us feel a strong connection to a photograph is how we felt when it was taken. It's an experience. I have owned and operated 6 different studios during my 16 year career but none have compared to the work that I can provide when I photograph a family in their own element, be it in home or outdoors. Not to mention, babies are absolutely more comfortable which equals bigger smiles. ;)
Yes please! Your pets are part of the family and your family photos wouldn't be the same without them in at least some! I have always had pets myself so am very comfortable with all types of animals and more than happy to include your fur babies too. In fact, it just adds for even larger galleries!
Your family photo gallery will be connected to one of the nations highest quality labs with affordable print prices of all sizes. You can also download your purchased images and print wherever you like and I'll send a list of suggested labs. My most frequently suggested lab is Mpix.com
I fully guarantee my work, but let me elaborate here. If your baby is super fussy and we just can't make it work that day, we'll wrap it up, get you back newborn snuggles and I'll come back another day. Easy as that. It's only happened twice in over 16 years for babies who really were just having an off day, but the option is there should we need it.
You may notice that I don't list times in the descriptions. That's because storytelling looks different for every family. I don't watch a clock because we move on baby's time, but you can expect a natural flow of 90-120 minutes for newborns and about 30- 60 minutes for family or maternity. We take as many breaks for changes and feeding as we need and you'll see, there's a natural end. Never rushed and never too long.
I save the best question for last. This is almost everyone's concern and I really enjoy showing people how little it matters the day of the session.
I have photographed families in all types of homes. From a single room in a tiny apartment, to sprawling mansions that were immaculately decorated. I can tell you with 100% certainty that it doesn't matter. It's about the light, and your connections. We can find that anywhere you are. We can use as much or as little of your home as you'd like. If you have great decor, awesome, we can include tiny bits. Nothing at all on the walls because you just moved in? Great! We have lots of white backgrounds and simplicity! Truth be told, we spend a lot of time near windows and I will guide you before the session as what to expect. No need to fully clean or prep, it's a lot easier than you think.
