wonderful to meet you

Hi, I’m Kim!

I’ve lived in sunny San Diego for more than a decade now. I would say that I’m from the East coast, but I also spent several years of my childhood in California. I love both coasts for different reasons. But before I go on with random facts about where I’ve lived, if you’ve landed on this page, I suppose you may be interested in getting to know just a teeny bit more about me, and the type of photographer I am, before booking your photo session. Besides being a wife and a mama of three, I am a woman who is fiercely loyal to her friends, loves to dance, and has had an obsession with photography since childhood. 

Before I started my business, I had this vision of wanting photographs of my own family that felt more raw, emotive, and authentic than just quick snapshots of how we looked. I truly wanted to be reminded of a feeling when I looked at the images. I’m a nostalgic person and I have a good memory, but I wanted something that spoke deeper to me than just a visual reminder of the past. I wanted it to pull at my heart strings, punch me in the gut, move my soul. 

You’re here to book a session with me because you’re looking for images that capture more than what you simply look like. You may not always feel ready to be captured by a camera, but remembering how you feel with your family in the season of life you’re in right now, is simply more important. You’re wanting to document a visual love letter to your family and I’m grateful for the opportunity to do just that.

Want to know more? Check out my blog posts here. Or if you’d like to connect to get your next session scheduled, feel free to reach out to me! I look forward to working with you!
