cherry blossoms | princeton maternity photographer

These photos give it away that I’m behind on blogging – considering cherry blossoms bloom in April! 🙂

Last summer, Jaynie + I were matched as Anam Cara partners (a ministry through the seminary, pairing up a current student/spouse with an incoming student/spouse). We immediately hit it off – I think it’s a combination of being from the same area + we are in similar fields. When she told me that she was expecting, I jumped for joy. Steve + Jaynie are passionate individuals that deserve all the best! This little guy will be hopefully gracing us with his presence in two weeks. I’m anxious to see how parenthood is going to change these two.

Kim Schmidt is an on location maternity + newborn photographer serving the Princeton area. If you are looking to capture the final moments before a babe arrives, contact me for my availability.


girl with her bunny | princeton family photographer

Austin + Mark have been neighbors of ours since almost the very beginning of our time in Princeton. I’ve watched as their oldest two have blossomed into adventurers, critical thinkers, entrepreneurs (many times I received a knock on my door to buy a bracelet or such!), + extremely heartfelt individuals. Austin really wanted a family photo session for Christmas – my aim is to always please so Mark + I worked it all out behind the scenes. They opted to take the photos at their home on a fairly dreary Saturday morning, but the dew wasn’t going to stop us from having fun!

I’m totally in love with the series of Ruby with her bunny. Right after all the love she gave Bunny, it became a throwing object. 🙂 I also am in awe of how much the older two love on Ruby, how protective they are of her, how Ruby looks up to both of them with admiration. And let’s talk about that second to last photo at the bottom – my favorite is when the littlest mimics the older ones. It’s safe to say that this family session continues to make me grin from ear to ear. Truly an honor to be asked to capture them!

jameson | princeton newborn photographer

Capturing the first moments of a new addition to a family is probably one of my favorite things! I love how new, how raw, how awe-inspiring it is for new parents with their bundle. Abbi + Josh welcomed me into their Princeton home for a lifestyle newborn session. The light was gorgeous that day, little Jameson was a total champ, showing off his full head of hair!

last days | princeton family photographer

Sarah + Jake started their life as a married couple together in Princeton, adding in a pup + then sweet Claire last July. This park has special meaning to them, as it’s where Fielder came most weekends to run around. Then it became a family affair with the playground nearby. When Sarah emailed me talking about this park, I knew this session would be indeed incredible. They moved a week after our session to Virginia. How put together they were with a home in boxes is wild to me. Thank you again Sarah, Jake, Claire + Fielder for allowing me to capture your last days in Princeton at such a special place!

it’s hammer time | hamilton family photographer

Photographing families in their own homes is a favorite of mine. It works really well when you have a toddler that is shy. They are comfortable in their own home, they can show me their toys + go play if need be. It took quite a while for Mr. A to come out of his shell but man once he did, he was a total ham!! Then when I saw his dad the next week, he mentioned that A kept asking when the photographer lady would be coming back to play. Now that is what I call a success!!!

Kim Schmidt Photography is now booking for late spring and early summer family, child, maternity + newborn photo sessions in the greater Princeton area. Contact me to set up your session today!


the lone tree | oklahoma sunsets

I didn’t grow up in the country, despite what most people probably think about Oklahoma. I’m a “city” girl, only riding a horse at a YMCA overnight camp. My in-laws built a beautiful home on some land with an overlook to the city lake. One of the last nights there, we saw the most beautiful of sunsets. I sure do miss Oklahoma + their sunsets. Maybe it’s because when I’m “home” I’m not running from here to there, or that their sunsets are later, or that I’m more aware of my surroundings. All I know is, I miss seeing the sun set.

I’m heading home on Wednesday to give my mom, dad, brothers, +nephews the biggest hugs I’ve got in me. Thank you to all that have been thinking+praying for her! Seeing the sweet messages are such a godsend to me! I’ll be there through the weekend – if you call or email, I’ll try to get back as soon as I can! Thanks!
