schmidt boys | oklahoma

The weather in Oklahoma over Christmas was wild. It was gorgeous on Christmas day, tornado warnings, then an ice storm two days later. The boys decided to go fishing after we were done celebrating with family – I’m so glad to have been able to capture some photos of their non-successful fishing excursion.

Every year I’m tasked to get new photos of the boys for a calendar that I put together for my mother-in-law. This year, we were a bit tight on time, as Noah was heading out with the Pride of Oklahoma to play during the football playoffs. These three, with different personalities, ages (they are spaced out every 6 years, with Anthony being the oldest), are somehow the best of friends now. I love that they laugh at themselves, especially when we take these photos each Christmas!


disney world 2015

Last Christmas, my family decided that in 2015 we would celebrate at Disney for the holidays. My nephews were finally at an age that they would both remember the trip. When my mom got ill last March, all the planning went out the door. At the end of June, my parents ended up gaining custody of the nephews. When that happened, my mom + I thought it would still be fun to go to Disney. Everyone minus my oldest brother was invited. With a turn of events, the trip ended up being my parents, the nephews, Anthony + I. My other brother + his wife stayed back in Oklahoma. While it would have been so great to have everyone there, we still had such a fun time! The boys were completely surprised, they thought they were coming to New Jersey to visit us! Even now when I talk to the boys, we speak about this trip, about which ride was our favorite. Mine was probably the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. I have an adorable video of Rylan (the littlest guy) from the ride – I love re-watching it! Anthony’s was either Space Mountain or Mission Space (he’s quite obsessed with space these days!!). Randon’s favorite ride was the Astro Blaster at Magic Kingdom (I think we rode it at least 4 times!), Rylan’s was either Buzz Lightyear or Tower of Terror.

Overall, this trip to celebrate Christmas + birthday’s for both boys was extremely magical. It was so fun to see the excitement in their eyes throughout the entire trip.


brigid | west windsor newborn photographer

While I get asked time + time again if I have children of my own, especially at newborn sessions, my answer is always the same. Not at this time, but maybe one day. Parents + grandparents are always shocked to hear this, as I’m not afraid to hold, sush, calm, soothe, + pat a baby’s back/bottom until they are comfortable. I spent many years as a nanny + I feel like I have the magic touch. 🙂 I can almost always get a babe to sleep at our session!

At this newborn photo session with sweet Brigid, she was so content the entire time. I don’t believe I heard her cry one time. While I just realized that each image that I picked for this blog post has a wide eyed Brigid, she did actually sleep during our session! Many thanks to Heather + Jason for opening up their home right before the holidays!

Kim Schmidt Photography is an on location, natural light photographer, focusing on newborns, child + families, in the Princeton, Hopewell, Lawrenceville, West Windsor, East Windsor, Hamilton, and Bordentown areas. If you expecting, please reach out before the babe arrives, as my schedule is quite booked.


happiness abounds | princeton headshot photographer

Jan + I spend every Thursday morning, bright+early (7:00am early!!), together at a BNI meeting. When she mentioned wanting updated headshots for social media sites, I was 100% on board. I knew Jan would be photogenic (even if she told me she wasn’t!) – boy was I right!

I always tell my clients to bring multiple items to their photo shoot with me. Within 15 minutes, I had a variety of photos for Jan due to her changing out scarves/wraps! Another bonus is that I was able to teach her how to switch up tying a scarf.

home is wherever I’m with you | princeton child photographer

The lyrics to “Home” by Edward Sharpe + The Magnetic Zeros pops into my head when I think about this at home family photo session.
Ahh, Home
Let me come Home
Home is wherever I’m with you.

Carrie, Jon + the entire family embarked on a journey 2ish years ago to renovate their Princeton home. They moved out to allow a very close to complete gut of the home. Earlier in the fall, they moved back into their gorgeous home. It really is their forever home. I can see it on Carrie’s face every time I see her, how much this home is exactly what she wanted. We rescheduled our session together multiple times due to both of our crazy fall sessions. When we finally picked a date late in December, it seemed perfect to do the photos in their home, all decorated for Christmas.

Carrie entrusted Krissi Farrimond, a wardrobe stylist, to style her family for this shoot (which doubled as their Christmas dress too + then tripled as every day outfits!). If you are looking for someone to do a closet edit, your personal shopping, a whole new wardrobe or a personal styling for your photo shoot, reach out to Krissi. She does beautiful work!

I would be honored to be chosen to photograph your family this spring. I’m currently booking for March + April. Reach out soon to get on my quickly-filling up calendar.
