I picked up a camera, fell in love with a career, started a business that grew beyond my dreams, and over a decade later haven't looked back.
There have been a lot of changes since that day in 2003, but overall, my love for photography and people has stayed the same and I’m very thankful that this passion that has become my work.
But there is so much more to me than just photography, and I think that is a good thing! So, since you are here, and want to know a little more about who I am, let’s chat.
I am a person who loves life with all the energy I possess and especially the people in it. My husband Jamie is the love of my life and is always here when I need him. Together we have 2 beautiful children, Kailee and Kaiden, and they mean the world to me. We are a family that plays together and stays together. We love adventures, travel, San Diego, Disneyland. We love movies and new restaurants, and we love to just explore.
I am passionate about people and helping them to see the best in themselves… I do that through photography, but also through helping people with Health and Fitness, and I have a other side of my life that helps people find balance in their Heart, Mind, and Health… it’s a passion that I’m so thankful for because it has changed my life in such a positive way as well. So… to some, you could say I’m also a Health Freak and I will sit for hours and chat about food, working out… and some photography in their as well!
As for Photography, I have been photographing people since 2003. I started in weddings and received numerous awards, as well as Winner in the Arizona Bride “Best of 2011 & 2012” Awards for best Arizona Photographer, Brides Choice Awards by WeddingWire, and being invited to join the Platinum list of Wedding Style Magazine by Grace Ormonde.
Over the last year I have transitioned out of weddings and now enjoy doing portraits for families, social branding, and corporate work.
Over the years, we have been excited to see our work published in many different venues; magazines, industry blogs, and different websites. We have also received numerous awards for our photography. Below are a few of our favorite accolades.

From our happy clients...
What can we say?! Kim is simply AMAZING! She is more than a photographer. It has been 7 years since we booked Kim as our wedding photographer and i can safely say time has in no way altered my appreciation for the fabulous work she does. On the day itself, we felt in safe hands with Kim and her team and it was like having friends with you ! The experience and professionalism shines through, allowing you to relax and have the best day of your lives! We recently had a baby girl and Kim captured the most precious moments of our new life that we will cherish forever Looking through our photos, we are blown away by how natural and beautiful they all are. So full of emotion and looking through them is like watching life back in silence! Kim is seriously talented and genuinely loves what she does. You won’t be disappointed, she is the BEST!

Kim has been there to photograph some of the most important milestones in our lives, from our engagement photos, to our wedding day, to the newborn photos of our first child. She did it all. There is a reason we and other family members have gone back to her time and time again and will continue to do so. I’ll be the first to admit that I hate taking photos, but Kim will always make you feel comfortable in front of the camera and reinforces the importance of capturing these important moments. Over the years, and many photos together, we have gone from being a photographer and client to really developing a friendship that I will always be grateful for!
