Sweet little Norah is the good work of my friends, Sean + Corey.  I love to see how two faces come together as one.

  • Jess - Ah, Kim! Love those photos! Corey and Sean did make an adorable little one!

  • Deann B. - Lovely work, Kim! I really dig that hand shot of the new little one. And I am guilty of severe envy after seeing your grassy field location.

  • Jan - These are my favorite photos you’ve ever taken. Of course, I may be a bit biased. :)

    GREAT shots of Norah and love the maternity images too! Your work is always so fresh & different.

  • Kate - and you are SO doing my maternity photos if an accident ever happens here :) I heart these!

  • Corey - Oh my god, Norah and I are famous! We made Kim’s blog!

  • Heather - Love, love, love these! Norah and Corey look so beautiful.

  • claire - you definitely have a knack for newborn photography…although i guess that’s not surprising considering how fab all of your work is. these are lovely!

  • Kat Speyer - Amazing! I second what Kate said. ;)

I know what you guys are thinking: “Is Kim going all Anne Geddes on us?”  Well yes, I just might be.   I feel like it’s the next natural step for my business, plus I can’t get enough of those chubby cheeks and little toes. After many requests from past wedding clients who have started their family, I have finally made The Newborn Session available to everyone.  Email me if you are expecting. ;)

  • Heather - Love it! You are an awesome baby photographer!

  • Claire - wow you’ve been a blogging maniac! love this new baby session and think it’s very cool you’ve added that to your regular repertoire. also, love the engagement session w/ the pup. if i ever get engaged (and that’s feeling like a very big if at the moment..) i fully intend to get myself out there for a session with you :)

  • Kim - i wholeheartedly support that idea.. you are ridiculously good at it. these are to die for!

Heather and Keith are getting married next summer, and I can’t wait!  Here are a few from our engagement session together…

Oh yeah, and they’re dog people!  Awesome!  (I’m still hoping they find a way to make their pup part of their wedding)

  • Kim - lovely! i love all of them, but the first few pics.. the lighting is quite dramatic. and um, can i have the cute puppy?

  • Beth - These are perfection – every single one of them! Love that they have their dog in the shots. The lighting on the graffiti wall ones is awesome!!!

  • Heather & Keith - SO excited, these are beautiful! And there’s one of Noca not crying… amazing! ;) Thank you thank you!

  • Deann B. - Ooooooh… the TS with the trees? Perfection. And that one in the tall grass is right up there too.

  • Heather - I second that, the locations are amazing! Love those shots with the trees…and love that they included their handsome little pup in the photos too.

Meet the newest addition to my growing list of nieces and nephews: Daisy Grace.  Daisy loves baths, loves to sleep even more,  and has the cutest baby toes EVER!  I wish she lived closer so I could watch her grow…
