Jeanette – Six Months – Portland Photographer

Meet little Miss Jeanette, or Netty – the cutest little nickname ever.  Netty came to see me with her family…mom, dad and her two big brothers, who happen to have 4 paws.  I love when families bring their dogs into the studio for a family portrait session!  She was all smiles, and like my middle daughter, the happier she was, the wider her mouth was.  HA!  Such joy.  Netty was an absolute pleasure to photograph.  Are you looking for a Portland photographer for your baby or family sessions?  I would be happy to meet with you for a pre-consultation, so give me a call or send me an email.  But enough about that…let’s enjoy some really big smiles!

Family Portraits

If you have a pet that you would like to join in for family portraits, please do not hesitate to ask.  I can’t promise to make them smile, but I’ll do my best!  The hardest part is getting them to sit still…but once we get that, getting them to look is no trouble.  And look at little Netty here with her boys!  So precious…an wonderful memory!

Tween and Sibling PortraitsSibling Portraits

You know how they say, the cobbler’s kids have no shoes?  Well…it holds true for photographers too, my kids have no shoes.  (Hee hee)   Actually…it is true that I rarely get my own little faces into the studio for updated portraits.  But I am so thankful I finally found the time in their busy schedule and mine to take these photographs.  For these portraits, we really wanted to capture their personalities  at this moment, their favorite things, how they are beginning to define themselves as individuals.  Your family session can include both tween and sibling portraits!

Maybe you have someone in your life starting to do the same…a budding artist, a football star, a future veterinarian?  Perhaps we can capture a similar moment in time for you!  Did you know that
“tween” mini sessions can be done at any time?  Mini sessions are typically a special event at Barefoot Photography, but I think tween portraits are overlooked, and necessary, so I offer them at any time.  Contact me for more information, and do it today before your tween becomes a teen and then a young adult!  Careful…could be happening right now!

Capturing Individuality!

Oh my goodness, this girl and her stuffed animals.  I don’t like to throw around the word obsession…but there are over 120, so what would you call that?

But never the less, look at the joy they bring her!  So glad we captured this moment before they stuffed animals are replaced with make up and boys.

Tween Portraits

And, our soccer star!  This girl plays on two different teams and almost ended up on three.  She is a rockstar and her focus and determination is inspiring.

Throw a challenge down and this girl will conquer it.

Tween Portraits

The lure of the stage…our girl in the limelight.  I still cannot believe that she started this adventure just two years ago and is already singing, dancing and acting

with more heart and passion than people who have been at it for years. Watching her perform is sheer bliss!

Tween Portraits

So proud to call these three ours!  “Behold, children are a gift of the LORD.” Psalm 127:3aTween and Sibling Portraits

mariena – 36 weeks – Pregnancy Portraits

It is such a pleasure to have a client come back again and again for pregnancy portraits, and so it was with Aaron and Mariena.  I photographed Abby when she was just a tiny bundle, and now she’s the big sister!   These portraits were taken during their mini maternity session.  Did you know that a mini maternity session is a complimentary add on when you book your newborn appointment with Barefoot Photography?  A fabulous option for moms who want to capture their pregnancy but don’t need a full session.

odessa and imogen – Family Portraits

Family Photography Portland

And another wonderful family that has been coming to me for family portraits for years!  In fact, this family is one of two families that have been coming to Barefoot Photography since I got my start in my backyard studio…so many years!  Thank you, thank you for trusting these sweet memories to me.  It’s an honor!

“We are blessed to have Kimberly take our family’s pictures!  We are always comfortable and she is so great with the kids — from newborn to older.  Kimberly took my maternity pics too and I am so happy to have those memories.  We couldn’t love a photographer more.  Plus, she is just an awesome person :)”

I need to do some digging so I can show you a “watch me grow” post for these girls.  This session was easily one of my favorites to date.  Odessa is quickly becoming a young lady…entering that tween stage.  And little Imogen has so much energy and vitality!  I love capturing their unique personalities.  And these photos are not staged…I didn’t have to bribe them.  This is who they are, they hug, they hold hands…they snuggle.  I would just give them an idea…”Can you touch noses?” And then oh, the giggles.  Sweet moments!

Portland Family PhotographerThis family is drawn to black and white portraits, as am I.  But the pop of color on the blue trunk is so beautiful!  I love the simplicity of their white dresses against the grey backdrop, with that splash of color.  Children's Portraits PortlandChildren's Portraits PortlandSuch a fabulous family…a joy to photograph!  Our sessions have always been filled with laughter.Portland Family PhotographerThis portrait of the sisters is my favorite from their photo shoot.  I simply told them to stand here together.  I turned and this is what I saw.  SO precious!  What a beautiful moment…  I just adore the way Imogen is holding onto big sister Odessa’s arm.  Perfection…Family Photography PortlandChildren's Portraits PortlandFamily Portraits Portland AreaKeep smiling girls…you’re beautiful inside and out!

colette – 34 weeks – Maternity Portraits

Maternity Portraits

One of the highest honors you can have as a photographer, is to have another photographer choose you as their photographer.  And I am doubly honored as this is the second time I have had the pleasure of providing maternity portraits for Colette and her wonderful family, that is about to grow by two feet!  Gerrit and Colette, like so many parents recently, have opted to not find out if this little bundle is a little brother or a little sister to the adorable Pearl.  (Seriously…this girl is off-the-charts adorable!)

This was a mini maternity session…quick and simple and YES!  The whole family can be involved in the session.  Older siblings, whether they are two or twelve can add so much to a maternity session…please do not hesitate to include them.  A mini session lasts about 20 minutes and produces around 10-12 images.  A perfect way to capture your pregnancy!

“Kimberly has done my maternity photos twice along with our newborn photos and I have to say, she’s seriously one of the best in Portland, if not the whole country. Her attention to detail and eye for lighting and composition is amazing. Not to mention the quality of images and product she delivers is so sharp and beautiful. But even beyond that, she loves the squishy babies and knows how to mold them into the cutest poses! It’s truly a gift to have such a pairing of technical and creative in one photographer. Hire her. Seriously.”
