Many of you remember and have asked how I’ve been coping since losing my pugs last summer. I’d be lying if I said I was fine. While Ady is a dream come true on so many levels, there isn’t a day that goes by where I don’t think about Eddie and Bianca. You know how […]

Taking photos with pets

filed in: family

I’ve been obsessed with Angie and Talon from the moment I met them (In fact, if you’ve been following me for awhile, I’m sure you’ve seen me talk about them many times before!). They are seriously the sweetest couple who are so in love with each other it fills me up every time I shoot […]

I have a little bit of exciting news to share! Covid showed me how I could re-imagine Kelsey Kimberlin Photography in a way that I’m finding extremely fulfilling, and the more I’ve thought about it, the more I cannot wait to share the news. Starting immediately, I’m shifting my focus toward to two specific things: […]

Boudoir sessions and why I’m changing my focus

Boudoir session of a woman on a bed posing seductively

What a wild ride the last year has been. When I think back to where we were this time last year (sanitizing groceries and binge-watching Tiger King, amirite?), I’m not sure I would have expected to be where we are today. No, I’m not talking about being vaccinated and seeing the light at the end […]

I met Todd when we both worked for the University of Kansas. He so sweetly talked about his wife, Jess — about how she was so smart and talented, about how he is so lucky to be married to such an amazing woman, and then some. They seemed so perfect: him, a marketing professional who […]

The Beauford family and their miracle babies

What’s the most beautiful you’ve ever felt? If you’re like most women, you’ll probably start to say something like, “My wedding day,” or maybe even something like, “Before I had kids.” Maybe it was when you were in “better shape.” And that’s what I always find heartbreaking. Women so rarely are able to look at […]

The power of boudoir

Lauren and Elliot are dream clients of mine. I can genuinely say it’s because this couple has become like family to me. When they set up their most recent watch me grow session with their beautiful son Maverick, they invited their extended family along and I couldn’t wait to see them all again! I’ve been […]

When I first started out as a young photographer, I briefly spent time in the darkroom. There was something I loved about it… Dipping the film and paper, testing out different processes to get the perfect printed photos. It was an art that was empowering and beautiful, even though it took so much labor. But […]

I remember telling everyone I knew about the first time I got to shoot Andy and Brogan. What seemed at first to be a quiet, unassuming demeanor, I quickly saw how much they absolutely adore each other. I talked about their session for weeks! Fast forward to just a handful of weeks ago, and their […]

I first had the opportunity to document the life of the Van Nice family (Jennifer, Brandon, and their kiddos Charlotte and Nicholas) back in 2017, when they had just grown from a family of three to a family of four. It was hard not to fall in love with them back then.  But this time? […]
