“WOW…..Those were our family’s first words after seeing the portraits that Kim Carpenter Portraits created of us shortly after our session with her, and we 100% agree!! All the final photos of my husband and I were amazing. We are very happy with how relaxed, professional, and patient Kim was with our awkward, uncomfortable-in-front-of-the-camera family. She was very open and interested in hearing exactly what we were looking for and if we had any preferences, offered creative suggestions based on the littlest of prompts. I couldn’t be more pleased with our decision and happier with how everything turned out with her as our family photographer. The pictures turned out beautiful and are a lovely reminder of our life together for years to come.”

Our Luxury Albums are crafted with quality, high-end cover materials. The interior consist of thick, durable pages created to prevent bending and will last years to come. The spreads are assembled in a lay-flat structure leaving you with no unwanted crease between the two pages, and allows the pages to open completely flat. It is one thing to see your GORGEOUS digital files, but it’s an entirely different level to see your family in print!


Prior to your photoshoot we will start discussing all your wall art needs. Whether you are looking for one single IMPACT SIZED piece that makes an instant statement or an entire wall art gallery, we are here to plan an aesthetically pleasing, well thought out design that you will be proud to show off to everyone who enters your home!

Let's answer some questions you may have about a session.

How do I book my Family Portrait Session?

You can email us at or set up a time to chat HERE!

Is professional hair styling and makeup included?

Yes, professional hair styling and makeup (for one person) is included in the session fee.

How do I know what I want for Wall Art?

We will discuss where you are wanting to display your beautiful portraits. We will provide several options to choose from that fit your space and your needs.

Do you sell just digital files?

Absolutely! Every purchased image comes with a print and the same digital file. If you would like digital only that is more than fine! The price is the same whether you would like the print, the digital, or both.

Will you come to my location?

Great question! That depends and will be determined on a case by case basis. I am currently only doing indoor photography but if you have a space that you believe will work I would be happy to consider! Please reach out so we can discuss!

How many outfit changes do you allow?

Normally for my family portrait sessions we do 2 “looks”. I suggest either one dressy and one casual or one dark color palette and one light color palette. I offer suggestions and we will come up with a custom plan that works specifically for your family.

How many people do you allow?

I can accommodate a family of up to 6 people nicely in my studio. If you have more than that it will depend on ages of children etc. Please reach out and we can discuss options.
