seattle family and newborn photographer
serving Seattle, WA and beyond
There is nothing stronger or more beautiful than the bond a family shares.
Why newborn and family photography? Because I see it in the way your son’s face lights up with a tickle and how your daughter squeals from a toss in the air. I see how you react and enjoy these moments in the present, and how your kids will remember them. You handle parenting with a laid-back attitude, playfulness, and a touch of old-school style. You know life has enough serious moments. That’s why other parents may balk at your willingness to make fart noises with your armpit in public, but you believe that being goofy and able to laugh at yourself is important for your kids to see. Your kids LOVE this silly, imperfect side of you. Your relationships with your kids is part of your story and the foundation of theirs.
your family has a unique and beautiful story
To watch us laugh is to hear our hearts speak
“It takes a lot of courage to let people hear our hearts speak, but life is way too precious to spend it pretending like we’re super cool and totally in control when we could be laughing, singing, and dancing.” – Brené Brown
Hello there! My name is Kim and I’m an award winning newborn and family photographer based in Seattle. My passion for film photography started at an early age, spurred by my dad’s love for visual storytelling. I love to incorporate that element of storytelling in my work with newborns, kids, and families, ever since launching my business in 2007. I love to use my client’s cozy and familiar homes or the beautiful outdoor spaces of the Pacific Northwest to create images that tell your family story in an imperfect, yet raw and authentic way. Most recently, I was named as one of the “100 Photographers to watch in 2017” by Clickin Moms Blog. I have had work featured in several publications and magazines including Lemonade & Lenses, Let the Kids, Clickin Moms, Click Magazine, Mozi Magazine, NAPCP, Rangefinder, and Seattle Magazine. I’m also a regular contributor for Little Bellows, a popular film photography blog. When I am not photographing families, I can be found hiking, skiing, and traveling with my own family. If you’d like to learn even more about what I’m up to, both personally and professionally, read more about me here!

Photo Sessions are laid-back, spontaneous, and YOU
“Honestly, at first I was not excited to do our family pictures. I don’t know of one dad who is. But you made our family session fun and easy and now I can’t wait to see the photos. You do amazing work, Kim!”Sam (a reluctant dad)
“We’ve done two family photo sessions with Kim and had a great time at both – not to mention getting fabulous photos. Our second session was with 12 extended family members, 4 of whom were 7 years or under, so handling that group is no small feat! Kim is a fun and engaging photographer, and captured the very best moments between us. She’s the best!”Katy
We worked with Kim on a newborn photo session. Kim instantly put us at ease – like talking with an old friend. Kim took great care to keep our newborn warm and comfortable as she worked to get great shots of the baby alone or with us. We noticed that Kim did not rush, but took the time she wanted/needed to get the desired shots. The photos from this session are fantastic. We highly recommend checking out Kim’s portfolio and meeting with her to capture this special time after the birth of a baby.Brooke
“We’ve been having family photo sessions with Kim for six years in a row. We love our photos and canvases every year. We have them grouped as a wall gallery going up our stairway and a gallery set for each of our children in their bedrooms. The wall galleries are a fun and beautiful way to document and enjoy our lives as a family. Thanks Kim!”Carrie
