Portland, Oregon Documentary Photographer

I capture the stories of people, places, and events through my lens.



I am a documentary photographer based in Portland, OR  and I am passionate about telling authentic & compelling stories through images.


Whether it’s your yearly family photos, the birth of your child, personal or branding portraits, a social issue or community event, I approach each assignment with curiosity, creativity, and sensitivity. I aim to document the moments that matter, the emotions that resonate and the details that make a difference.

Bright, authentic, nostalgic imagery.

“Kimberly has a perceptive eye for capturing moments of all kinds, from the rawness of birth to the chaos of a family to protest resistance. If you have a story to tell they'll make it visible & vibrant, and if you're not sure what story you're telling yet, she'll help you find it in her photography.”
