100 year old home | pennington family photographer

I’m still catching up on blogging fall/Christmas sessions. 🙂

When Lizzie reached out to me, she mentioned how special it would be to have their family photos done at their 100+ year old home in Pennington. Um, yes please!! When we went up to little C’s bedroom, there was an heirloom firetruck from his dad’s childhood. I love that little C is obsessed with the siren that still works + pushing it around his adorable (!!) room. 

Kim Schmidt Photography is an on location maternity, newborn, child + family photographer located in the Princeton area. I am now booking for March + April. Spring is right around the corner – think cherry blossoms!!! Reach out today as my calendar is booking up quickly!


we are family | central jersey family photographer

Happy Lear Year friends!! To honor this special day that occurs every four years, I wanted to share a photo session from this past fall. You may recognize this family from May or last fall for Emma’s 2nd year birthday celebration! As I mentioned here, we always have crazy weather for our sessions. This was the first time that the weather was absolutely beautiful, maybe a slight chill, but nothing that we couldn’t handle!

One thing that I admire about Kim is her drive to be a better person She isn’t letting anything hold her back. She is almost finished with nursing school, raising her little family, + helping her sister/niece. I know how important her sister is to her, so I suggested that we do the session at their home again to include both her sister+niece. It’s always a treat to take photos of a family in their home, where everyone is most comfortable, + we can take a little break for snacks/drinks if necessary as well.

If you’d like to have photos of your family taken in/around your central New Jersey home, I’d love to chat with you. It’s never too late, especially with spring being right around the corner!


hot chocolate | princeton child photographer

The morning of this session was bitterly cold. Right before I left the house I thought of how fun it would be to have the girls drink hot chocolate. Mom was totally on board, as were both girls. It was the perfect way to end our photo session!

Kim Schmidt is a Princeton-based child photographer booking photo sessions for February, March, + April. Just think about cherry blossoms + flowers blooming!! (hard to imagine with the cold weather, huh?) Contact me today to schedule your session.


julia+john+libby | central jersey child photographer

In the session agreement, when I asked what the overall vision is for the session, Katy wrote “I’ve had other photos taken of the kids. I haven’t had anyone able to have their personality come through in pictures – you are magic!!” <- HOLY MOLY, WHAT A COMPLIMENT! Interested in seeing previous sessions of a much smaller Julia + John?! Check them out from 2011 + 2009 (let it be known that that first image is still one of my all time favorite photos). Probably one of my favorite things about looking through all three sessions of these kiddos – both girls have worn pettiskirts! 🙂

From the bottom of my heart, Katie+Chris, thank you for continuing to allow me to photograph your children time + time again. It’s an honor!

Kim Schmidt is a child + family photographer in the greater Princeton area, serving Princeton, Hopewell, Lawrenceville, Hamilton, Bordentown, Plainsboro + more. If you are interested in documenting your family, we should chat!


kaleigh+matt | princeton maternity photographer

When I met Matt + Kaleigh for this maternity session in downtown Princeton, one of the first things Kaleigh asked me was about life in Princeton + being associated with the seminary. THIS WAS A GIRL WHO DID HER HOMEWORK! She knew more about me than most, by taking in every post I’ve made on my blog. That truly blew me away. While we all three (or four!) were freezing walking around Princeton, I found myself warmed by the love between these two + the little boy growing. Matt is quite the protector over Kaleigh + babe, I believe it’s quite apparent in these photos too. Come back soon to see the newest addition, as he made his arrival a month early!

Kim Schmidt is an on-location maternity + newborn photographer based in the Princeton, New Jersey area. The best time to schedule a maternity session is between 30-34 weeks. If you are expecting + thinking about newborn photos, the best time to reach out is before the babe arrives. Currently my schedule is limited so don’t miss out! I would love to photograph your growing family.


caroline+nate | princeton couples photographer

It’s safe to say that when you come to my site, that you can tell I focus on child + families. I love love love running after toddlers + capturing their spirit. Early on in my photography journey I realized my strengths were in that field, much more so than photographing weddings. While I have photographed hundreds of events + am completely confident in my skills, I’ve turned down many weddings since 2008. When Caroline contacted me about photographing their intimate wedding this coming summer, I couldn’t say no. See, Caroline + Nate met at Princeton Seminary. If you’ve followed along for any length of time on the blog, you know that my husband + I moved to Princeton for him to get his PhD at the seminary. There is a special place in my heart for seminarians + with the glowing email Caroline sent me, I just knew that I’d be there on their special day!

If you’re a couple that hasn’t had professional photos taken since your wedding, please reach out to me. You won’t regret the decision to have photos!
