Time doesn't stop.


We feel this to our core as time is a thief. There is always a reason to put off scheduling a portrait session. But time doesn't slow down for anything or anyone, and we don't want you to miss out on capturing this moment in time you're in right now.


  • Worried you don't when or how to plan a session?
  • Not sure what to wear?
  • Concerned your final images won't turn out?

"They made us feel like our family was important to them. We were able to capture special, loving images of us together and our images are beautiful."

The Burgus family

the Hornungs


Since our fathers passed away, having family pictures done with our mothers was important.


Life is too short to miss having photos for our kids to look back on. I love having photo albums to thumb through. Our children have changed, and it is a gift to pass on as they become adults for their families in the future.


I love KimAnne and her staff! They
do a fantastic job and genuinely care about their clients.

the Wolfs


KimAnne was very accommodating in working with us to set up all aspects of the session.

Planning the session ahead of time helped

make the day more relaxed.

We didn't have to worry about anything.


The portraits look amazing on our walls, and having the tangible items in front of us makes the experience worth it. These are pictures we will treasure for a lifetime.

the Hardys


The personalization of the whole experience was amazing. The entire time I felt

well taken care of and appreciated.

The team does fantastic work;

you can tell they love what they do.


Kim captured our daughter's genuine smile, and that's no easy feat! It was great to have

personalized guidance for our outfits.

The Kim Anne Crew knows what they're doing!




Preparing for your portrait session doesn't have to be stressful or complicated. We will provide you with a step-by-step guide to planning your perfect session, with no stress!



Every session starts with a quick discovery call. This is where we learn about your family, what you would like to see in your portraits, and set up a design consultation to plan your session together. We will help you plan the perfect session from your outfits, location and inspire you with ideas of ways to decorate your home with your new wall portraits.

  1. Give us a call to connect!
  2. Schedule your design consultation to plan the details of your session together.
  3. Schedule your session and order premiere, sign your portrait agreement and pay the session reservation fee.


Relax as our planning comes together to create the session you envisioned. It's all about you being present with your family while we capture your interactions—the smiles, giggles, and connection with each
other. We love making the process easy and fun, which could be why so many clients come back year after year to document their families as they change and grow.




Sharing your images with you for the first time is our favorite part! We love seeing your reaction as you go through each one. Our team will be there to answer your questions, guide you as you select images and help you visualize your images on the walls of your home, and ensure that the portraits you choose compliment your home and personal style.

Don't miss another moment.


Too many families tell us they wish they'd done family portraits sooner. They worried it would be too much work to get images they love and instead missed capturing the small moments between the more significant life milestones.

This is why our team is here to help you find time in your schedule, choose the right outfits, and listen to what you have envisioned for your session.

We love making the entire portrait journey easy, fun, and, most of all, simple. Our clients enjoy their portraits and the process so much that many come back to capture each special milestone.


What next?


You've decided you want to do a family session but do not know the next step. You're probably wondering what it will cost, what products we offer, and how to schedule this around your family's crazy, busy life!


It's important to you to capture who they are today, but it's even more important that the experience is fun and memorable.
