“Kim was a pleasure to work with! She was prompt with all communication. Even while coordinating with other clients, she was able to schedule our shoot in a reasonable amount of time. Kim made us feel comfortable on the other side of the camera and was patient with our dog as he ran around and photo bombed! The best part – she’s affordable! I highly recommend using her services! She’s hilarious, talented, and genuine – all things I wanted to be reflected in our pictures. Thank you, Kim!”
