I work with passionate business owners in the beauty, health and wellness industries who are ready for growth. I've documented over 100 weddings and empowered dozens of women with boudoir experiences. I own a communal studio to rent by the hour in my hometown, and am now taking students of my own via 1-1 mentorships. How balance I do it all? I really freaking love it and my clients tell me that they really freaking love me. I only work with people who I really click with, I map out my time thoughtfully, and I'm incredibly organized.
Things you might not need to know but if you're like me you want to know (ya know?) -- I am SUPER into personality quizzes, astrology, and all of the woo-woo things. I'm an Enneagram 2w8, ENFJ, a Taurus, and my love language is Quality Time. If you meet me in real life I will probably hug you (unless you prefer high fives.)
yes, people really call me kimgirl
In 2021, opened a natural light photography & content creation studio in Downtown Marquette with the goal of offering A SPACE TO CREATE - something I didn't have when I first started my creative career.
In 2023, I'm taking it one step further and offering 1-1 mentor sessions, both in-person at Studio South, and virtually via Google Meet, to photographers and creatives who want to establish or grow their business.
Backyard vows, lakeside ceremony, mountaintop nuptials.
Farm-to-table dinner just before sunset, followed by a bonfire with live music provided by your college bff.
Spending quality time with every single one of your guests on your wedding day.
More of who and what matters most to you and less of what you "should" do according to some strangers on the internet.
You and the love of your life saying yes to forever in a special place or bucket list destination.
Waking up when you feel like it, getting ready together, doing everything that you want to and nothing that you don't. Pick a spot on the map and let's go!
Need help planning an elopement in Marquette, MI? I've got you.
Engagement, anniversary, second honeymoon, a random Sunday afternoon... your story doesn't end (or even begin) with your wedding day.
I love to capture couples organically, in their element, doing things they love, preferably with their dogs.
Whether it is an in-home couples session or a hike up Sugarloaf to have coffee watching the sunrise over Lake Superior, we can do whatever you want! Just think of me like a third wheel on a really fun date.
Moira Rose said it best:
"Take a thousand naked pictures of yourself now. You may currently think, "Oh, I'm too spooky.", or, "Nobody wants to see these tiny boobies." But believe me, one day you will look at those photos, with much kinder eyes and say, "Dear God, I was a beautiful thing!""
Seriously, if you do one thing for yourself, let it be a boudoir experience with me!
