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!

rare + beautiful | lawrenceville family photographer

“How rare and beautiful it is to even exist.” Sleeping At Last

When a client + I start brainstorming ideas for a session, it always starts with a Facetime/Skype session to go over outfit choices + locations. With Jenna + her family, it was a no-brainer to meet on Rider University’s campus. Not only did Keith graduate from there, they spend plenty of time on campus playing with their little munchkin.

I am extremely excited for Jenna’s next venture as the co-owner of Princeton Integrative Health, an integrative medicine practice in Lawrenceville, focusing on engaging, educating, empowering, and encouraging patients to take back control of their health by identifying and treating the root cause of disease and dysfunction, not just by treating the symptoms.

Kim Schmidt Photography focuses on maternity, newborn, child + family photography in the Princeton, Lawrenceville, Hopewell, Skillman, Hamilton, + Bordentown areas.

playful family session | princeton photographer

“I exist in two places, here and where you are.” Margaret Atwood

 I love witnessing relationships grow over the years + this family is no exception. It’s been a year since our first session at their home. The boys may have run in different directions most of the session, but mom + dad did an amazing job of engaging + playing with their kiddos on Princeton University’s campus! I’m pretty much obsessed with every photo from this session – I wish I could share the family photos too but I don’t want to ruin any surprises for holiday cards!

Kim Schmidt is an on-location maternity, newborn, child + family photographer in the greater Princeton area. I am currently booking maternity + newborn sessions for January, February, + March 2017. Let’s chat about all the details for your personalized photo session today!

sibling love | princeton photographer

“The best thing to hold onto in life is each other” Audrey Hepburn

Two years ago, I photographed this sweet family right after they moved to the area. It was SO wonderful to catch up with them again, to see how much they’ve grown, + all the activities they are now involved in. The first photo of the children with their dad was not prompted or planned. It says exactly how this family is, extremely loving + supportive of one another, even with teenagers in the bunch! I also adore that they kids thought it would be a great idea to have a photo taken with their respective shoes, to show the diversity of what they do but also how passionate they are.

Kim Schmidt Photography serves Princeton, Hopewell, Lawrenceville, Hamilton, + Bordentown, New Jersey.
