Hello - I'm Kim, a professional working mom and a photographer living in the greater St. Louis Area. I have had an interest in photography from a very young age. I received my first Polaroid camera and a tape recorder at 8 years old. I purchased an antique 3D slide camera when I was sixteen years old and started becoming interested in 3D photography. It wasn't until years later that I realized I had this passion within from a young age.
I was a Technical Illustrator/Animator at Hunter Engineering for 20 years. I manually created tri-metric 3D parts drawings from blueprints and then learned CAD systems to create 3D models in the computer. I then worked towards my B.S. Degree in Media Communications studying 3D animation, photography and videography. I created some 3D animations and edited hockey videos for the St. Louis Blues on the Jumbotron.
As a hockey mom, I started creating sports videos for my son's hockey teams through the years and continued photographing and videoing sports events, concerts, weddings, seniors, children, maternity, pets, landscapes, and family portraits. I have been focusing on my passion of photography for many years. I attended a Creatography photographic course and learned many helpful photography techniques which led me to join a group of professional photographers for networking. A few years ago I started working photographing newborn babies at the hospitals in St. Louis. Additionally, I have been focusing on creative techniques to photograph newborns from my home studio in Cottleville, MO.
Along with photography, I enjoy spending time at home with my husband taking walks, cuddling with our cats, and house searching. We love to cook and gather with our families. I recently became a mimi and have a new grand daughter! I like using my hands to paint, make things, or work on house renovations. I also enjoy decorating, cooking and baking for special occasions, traveling, scuba diving, taking underwater videos, visiting the beach often, hiking, playing sand volleyball, going to St. Louis Blues Hockey games, live concerts & music festivals with friends, and babysitting our grand daughter and grand dogs.
