“I am going to make everything around me beautiful & that will be my life.”
-Elsie de Wolfe
I believe in that quote so much that I got it tattooed on my arm this year. It hurt like a mofo, BUT, I live and breathe those words into all aspects of my life. My main goal to getting those photos you love is I want you to be comfortable with me. I am already awkward as heck but I’m also very bubbly. I can make light of any situation. I am also a bit of a wild child. Which is ironic because I didn’t really become like that until my 30’s! But I love to dance and will totally get down with you on the dance floor.
I got bit by the wanderlust bug when I was 24 when I went to London and Africa for 2 weeks. Been obsessed with seeing new places ever since. Iceland and Alaska are at the top of my list! I travel as much as I can every year and no matter where I go, I make friends. But don’t get me fooled. I am also a homebody. Netflix, my dogs and my couch are my soulmates. I have been married to my best friend for 8 years. We got married on 7/11 and we get a slurpee every year! It’s the small things that make any relationship work.
Growing up on the Olympic Peninsula, and coming from a family of hikers, I love the outdoors. Climbing up a mountain for you to take your photos is one of my love languages. I prefer mixed drinks to beer, but will do shots with you at your reception. I prefer to capture the real you rather than have you stand there looking stiff or just “looking cute.” I will use potty humor if needed to make you laugh for your photos. Nothing beats a natural laugh. I have worked very hard over the last 10 years to make sure you absolutely love what I create for you. If you walk away from your session feeling more connected to your loved ones than your iPhone, then I did my job.
My name is Kim, let’s make a connection.
