proof box | product spotlight

Two of my three collections include these gorgeous custom 5×7 proof boxes that include a 5×7 of each color image from your gallery. The box itself is nice and durable, holding up to 50 images or you could even store items that are special from that year (baby’s first haircut, artwork, cards, etc.). It’s the perfect width to be placed on a bookshelf, next to an album or other mementos. Any client may purchase this proof box a la carte, even from a previous session. Just shoot me an email for all the details.

a new journey | the personal blog

When I first started my business and this blog, I knew I’d be sharing both business + personal posts on a regular basis. Somewhere along the lines, Anthony + I started doing a lot more traveling and “interesting” things that I felt weren’t always fitting for sharing on here. If you saw the page in my business journal with blog post ideas it would be a tad overwhelming – it definitely became that way for me. I decided last fall to start a personal blog in hopes of getting caught up on all the adventuring we’ve been doing and a space to share thoughts on being eco-conscious, cooking, sewing, a wife of a PhD student + job-hunting and much more. I’d love if you’d follow along on the journey with me!


icy princeton

Woke up to snow once again today, when is the weather going to warm up for good?!?! It was such a nice reprieve this weekend when it warmed up and the ground became clear again.

In honor of the snow outside, I wanted to come share a few photos from the ice storm we received weeks ago.

I love the second and fourth photos – beautiful, Kim!

nathan | princeton newborn photographer

I’ve been anxiously awaiting Mr. Nathan to make his arrival to the world, since the moment Carrie told me she was expecting. In the fall we gathered for a maternity session at Terhune Orchards and alas the debut of this long awaiting babe. Nathan came into this world fast and furious (that’s the exact text I received from Carrie the next day!) the night before a huge snowstorm was coming our way. Jon was passing double yellow lines/cars going way beyond the speed limit to just barely make it to the hospital at 10:00 pm on a Sunday night. Praise be that there were no cops on the road, no ice or snow, and Nathan held off on his arrival for a few more moments!

Hold the front door, I was able to capture this “smile” + I’m happy to report that no explosions happened right after the smile either!!!

Molly and Shail are enamored by their baby brother and I love that I was able to capture that moment during this in home newborn session.

Congratulations Jon + Carrie on your adorable bundle of joy!!!!


my heart is in oklahoma

These two are obviously one of my favorite subjects to photograph, seeing as they grace this blog many times a year (Rylan has changed the most in the short 6 months since we last saw him!!). On one of the coldest days of our trip to Oklahoma, Anthony + I gathered the boys to do a quick photo shoot. They were total troopers, but it didn’t take long for us to be done! I do love that they are at ages now (7+5) that it’s not torturous to get their photos taken, or have to chase after one or the other to cooperate, especially with the cold weather that day!

My favorite part of this series is how Rylan slowly moves over to be near Randon, even though I didn’t prompt them.

P.S. it should be noted that Rylan picked the tie out all on his own!


theo | princeton newborn photographer

Last week, on an incredibly dark and dreary morning, I spent some time with this adorable family as they began adjusting to life as a family of 3 + 2 kitties. Bobby + Sarah were interested in a lifestyle newborn shoot and this is by far one of my favorite photo sessions I’ve had in quite a while (hence why I’m sharing more than the usual!!). Theo was an absolute dream, giving me several smirks and “smiles” and only needed to nurse one time towards the end of our session. Enjoy!!

Sarah + I have known each other for a few years now – seeing her become a mother and loving on this handsome guy is such a treat.
You can feel the love, right? K, just making sure!

Fabulous photos, Kim. Can’t wait to get my Grandma’s Album put together!
