FRESH. CANDID. TIMELESS.

MY STYLE

This is not a ‘traditional’ portrait session; my style is much more relaxed, and my goal is that you will actually have a little FUN, too. No boring posing allowed. I want you to be comfortable and relaxed, and my goal is to capture those moments and real interactions that show the love you have for each other as a family. This will be a no-stress photo shoot experience!

LOCATION

We will meet up for your photo shoot either at your home or an outdoor location – whichever you’d prefer. Does your family love hiking, canoeing, or going to the farmer’s market? Do you have a favorite location where your kids love to explore? Or maybe your little one loves throwing rocks into the lake. Whatever it is, I would love to join in and capture your family doing something you love.

WHAT TO WEAR

After you book your shoot, I will send you some ideas and style guides to help you plan your outfits. You definitely don’t have to match – it’s more about coordinating with colors that flow. Keep in mind – the more comfortable you (and your kiddos) feel, the more natural you will look in front of the camera! You can also check out my Pinterest boards for some inspiration.

DIGITALS

Every photo shoot package receives digital images with a full print release. This means that you will be able to print and share your images wherever you’d like. I don’t hold any of your images ‘hostage’ — this is the BEST and most valuable part of your investment — you will receive approximately 75 gorgeous images. Your images will be delivered via digital download, through a private online gallery link. If you’d like to receive a backup disc or USB drive, you can purchase one at an additional cost.

PRODUCTS

Your images are NOT meant to stay stuck on your computer forever! I truly believe that having tangible products is SO important. I have a lot of options for you to purchase products – including large prints, canvas wall art, custom photo albums, and more. After you book your shoot, I will send you a link to view all of my favorite products so you can start planning if you’d like to purchase something tangible.

HOW TO BOOK

Ready to book your session with me? Get in touch first to make sure we can work out a date that works (I usually book 3-4 months in advance). Then I’ll just ask for a $150 retainer fee to reserve your session date. I’ll send an invoice to you via Paypal, so it’s super simple (of course, I’ll also accept a cash or check deposit). The retainer is nonrefundable, but it is transferrable in case we need to reschedule due to weather or sick kiddos.

“The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or touched; they are felt within the heart.”
-Antoine de Saint-Exupery

“Kimberlee's photos are a work of art. She has a way of putting us all at ease and making the experience fun and enjoyable! When people see our pictures they always comment on how beautiful and unique they are. I recommend Kimberlee to anyone - you will cherish your images forever.”

"Kimberlee is beyond fantastic! Within minutes she had our over active 2 year old mesmerized - to the point he was holding her hand to go for a stroll. Her casual, but professional, approach to the shoot meant that it felt more like an afternoon family stroll in the park, yet we now have these beautiful candid family moments to cherish. I would highly recommend Kimberlee."

“Kimberlee has created photographs of our family for years...and no one knows how to truly capture our family better than she does. She is simply the best. My walls are a gallery of her work from the early years of our marriage to the birth of our 2 children and the family pictures in between. Without question, the images she created are my favorite to look at and leave me overflowing with joy each time I look at them. Our sessions are fun and real and the best moments are captured. I mean it...there is no one better behind a lens.”
