evan the great | okc family photographer

Last time this family was featured on the blog was only days after Evan came into this world! To honor his second birthday, we gathered at one of my favorite parks in Princeton, Marquand Park, the weekend before I moved back to Oklahoma. What you can’t see in *most* of these photos (+ what mom/dad would attest as well) is how much of a pill Evan was being. That’s the beauty of photos, you cannot “see” the wild + crazy of a session, unless I post a photo. 🙂 Mom + dad trusted that I would be able to capture moments, without stressing about their 100% cranky 2 year old! 

Kim Schmidt is an on-location child + family photographer in the Oklahoma City metro area. I am currently booking fall + holiday photos. Let’s connect to plan your family photo session today!

playful lifestyle session | okc family photographer

Get ready for photo overload. I seriously could not narrow down the selection from my in-home session with Rachel, Matt, MJ + (new addition!) Ben. Rachel wanted the session to be fun + playful while being causal at their gorgeous home in Pennington. My job was easy because MJ loves her entire family with her every being, Ben looks up to her in every possible way, + mom/dad have a blast together. To see them grow from grad students, to a married couple, to being parents of two is so very special!

Serving Oklahoma City, Edmond, Bethany, Nichols Hills, + The Village, Kim Schmidt Photography is now booking fall photo sessions. I’d love to about capturing the love between your family + kids this fall.

love sweet love | okc couples photographer

I’m on my way back to New Jersey to photograph this lovely couple’s wedding this weekend! I know what you are thinking. She doesn’t photograph weddings. But when I get a glowing email stating they loved what I did at the other few wedding’s I’ve photograph, I just couldn’t say no. When Shannon wanted to do their engagement photos in the Prospect House gardens, I was floored that I hadn’t been in that area in years. Oops! But I’m so glad we spent our morning together in there. It’s so very peaceful + beautiful.

justin | okc commercial photographer

You may remember seeing this fella on the blog a few years back. He + Nicki are dear friends of ours. When he was asked to write an update for his alma mater + they needed a photo, he kindly asked me to do the honors. Right after graduating from the seminary, he was offered an associate pastor position in Metuchen. A few photos of him in his office, in front of the church + then inside. Tick off another online publication of my work! 🙂

Kim Schmidt Photography is now booking commercial clients in Oklahoma City, Edmond, Bethany, Midtown, + Downtown. Reach out to learn details on scheduling your session.

spring time | oklahoma city child photographer

I met up with these sweet, kind, + well-behaved children in the spring on the university campus. Mom + dad had engagement photos taken there years ago, so it was fitting when they were visiting their grandparents for spring break that we walked around to capture their personalities. I immediately went home from this session + mentioned to Anthony that I want our children to love one another the way these three siblings do. You can tell they care deeply for one another, they laugh + have a grand time too.

Kim Schmidt Photography is currently booking maternity, newborn, child, + family photos in the Oklahoma City metro area. Contact me today to reserve your fall session!

a small (okay large!) update | oklahoma family photographer

Man, I cannot believe it’s been since the end of 2016 since I’ve posted on here. It’s not for lack of photo clients, but it’s a lack of time to post. See, the past two+ years, I’ve been a little hustler. Not only was I running this business, but I was working full time, teaching Zumba 7 hours a week, + trying to survive all the craziness of being married! The last thing I wanted to do after a long day’s work was to get on here + post. I don’t post this out of pity but it’s the dawg-gone truth!

For a year now I’d been applying to full time work all over the country. A job posting opened up in Oklahoma City + I applied. I tried not to get my hopes up because I’d done this for months. I’d get the email for a phone interview, then an in-person, then I’d get the reject email. It took it’s toll on me! This time though I wanted it more than any other job I had interviewed for but I also knew that Anthony wasn’t 100% on board. See, the entire reason we were in Princeton was for him to work (+ finish!) his PhD. He had finally accomplished this amazing feat! It was his turn to get the job, the most perfect job. Unfortunately academia is a really tough field to crack. We kept praying + hoping that a job would open up for him. We were holding out hope, but nothing was happening. Until we took the job offer. (In what felt like a cruel twist of fate, three days after I accepted the position, Anthony was offered an incredible job in Princeton. We spent a week praying + talking to family + close friends about what we should do. You now know what decision we made!!)

My mom started looking for a house for us to rent near my soon-to-be work, we worked on figuring out how we were going to move halfway across the country, + all the last minute things we needed to accomplish in New Jersey. The 5ish weeks from when I accepted to when we rolled out of NJ was the craziest time of our entire lives to date! We traveled to Rhode Island for a weekend, to Niagara Falls for a long weekend, said goodbye to friends, packed, sold a car + other furniture, gathered all medical documents from doctors/hospitals, all while I was still juggling working 3 jobs!

We ended up spending almost a week on the road, making a true road trip out of this new adventure. We first stop at Cedar Point to ride roller coasters, then made a lunch pit stop in Cincinnati, a night + day in Louisville, a day in St. Louis, then Oklahoma.

I’d also be remise if I didn’t mention that only 3 weeks into living in Oklahoma, Anthony was offered his *perfect* job! A job that will allow him to teach, research, archive, + travel across the world. I can’t tell many details just yet. I will say that we are SO very fortunate for all the opportunities that have come about since the middle of July!

Now that we feel somewhat settled into being Okies again, I’m finally able to breathe (+ sleep a little too – no more having to get up an hour earlier to travel to work!!). I’m ready to start focusing on building my photography business in Oklahoma. If you have friends or family in the area that need/want maternity, newborn, child, or family photos, I’d love to be connected to them!
