Looking for models!

From time to time Barefoot Photography goes looking for models for creative sessions. If you are interested in possibly being a model, email me at kw@kimberlywhipps.com.  I can send you details about how modeling for a creative session works.

Looking for Models

Current Model Search

First, I am looking for a pregnancy model who is or will be 34-36 weeks along during the month of May or early June.

Next, I am also looking for a mother of two daughters who are both 10-18 years of age.

And lastly, I am ALWAYS looking for newborn triplets. I would prefer the babies to be 2-4 weeks old.

If you, or someone you know, falls into any of the categories above, please EMAIL me at kw@kimberlywhipps.com with a snapshot. I will forward you a link with an application and details.

Please share this with anyone you know who would qualify and would like a complimentary session. Thank you very much!

sad news…

From my most recent newsletter…

Well…the unthinkable has happened. Towne Storage, the glorious old building that has housed Barefoot Photography for years, has been sold. And the buyer is not a lover of all things old and fabulous. He is planning to revamp everything…and by revamp I mean destroy. :( And the revamping includes the tenants. My time in this beautiful space is limited. And I am really heartbroken.

One of my first thoughts when I found out was of my clients. For those of you over the years who have also adored those “pirate ship” floors and crumbling brick wall in your portraits, your time is limited too. Those of you who opt to take advantage of these mini sessions, you will literally be some of the last people photographed in this studio.

Portland Family Photographer

My goal is to offer as many sessions as necessary to get in anyone wants one last session. Of course, these are not the last ever Barefoot Photography mini sessions that will ever be offered, but the new space I am considering does not have a brick wall, and the wood floors will be beautiful, but handmade and not years and years in the making.

So first, I am going to offer one day, Saturday the 12th, from 8am to 5pm. If those fill up quickly I will open some more times up. If you are interested in a session, but will be out of town or busy on the 12th email me anyway and we can set up a time.



Barefoot Photography’s studio – 17 SE 3rd Avenue, Loft 401 in Portland.

$49 covers the session fee. Portraits may be purchased
a la carte or within a collection. Portrait collections are begin at $299.

There is a maximum of three subjects (more can be added at $10 each) and due to the nature of a mini session newborn sessions are not possible.

The $49 fee must be paid in full to hold your time slot.

How do I sign up? Email Kimberly at kw@photosbykimberly.com
to set up your appointment time.


Please send me your top three choices from the remaining session times –

it’s a brand new blog…

Photography blog

Thank you to all of you who have followed my photography blog throughout the years. I am so excited to launch this brand new blog! My excitement is dampened just a little bit, when I realized today that my previous posts from years of wonderful clients and portraits….are gone.  They are GONE. After over two hours today with my wonderful hosting company searching, the white towel has been thrown.

So…while I am going to madly catching up on dozens and dozens of sessions that I have not yet blogged, I am also going to be having a little fun with a walk down memory lane. Posting some of my favorite images from sessions from the past.  Please, keep checking back! Lots of beauty to come.

Thank you again! It’s been such a fun journey.  Because so many photos disappeared on the blog, I thought I would post some of my favorite portraits from throughout the years for you to enjoy.

As you can see, I have been working with many many clients thoughout the last 10 years.  I have a lot of experience working with pregnant bellies, brandy new little bundles and little kidlets!  Contact me today to set up your own photography session.
