Working with Kim Carpenter was such an amazing experience for my daughter. My daughters name is Brittnie and she is 32 with Down Syndrome. She loves having her picture made but we always struggle with the right expressions. Kim made Brittnie’s day by having her hair and makeup done for her and then was very patient and kind! Brittnie walked away saying she felt like a model and for a parent with a special needs child it bring tears to your eyes to know her confidence was lifted even if it was just for a few short hours. Thank you Kim for making her day.
Kim Carpenter NAILED IT!! I actually LOVE my photos!! She spent so much time tweaking this and that to ensure we had the perfect portrait! She created an environment that made you feel your best while remaining comfortable and relaxed. Magazine quality photos was the end result! I HIGHLY recommend her to EVERYONE!!! Hair and makeup were on point and professionally done and I was blown away by the finished product.Nothing but top notch service from top notch ladies. Simply amazing.
“Kim, thank you so very much. I consider these photos a gift! Honestly before scheduling with you, I just wanted to feel and look as beautiful as the other women appeared that you have photographed. I never imagined I too could measure up to the same beauty. I can honestly say your talent ensured, I measured up in my own beautiful way! I have ever seen myself so breathtaking. I am extremely proud and thankful I took this journey with you.!”

Boudoir Photography FAQ
I want to book a session. What’s the first step?
Awesome! The first thing we will do is schedule a phone consultation so we can discuss how YOU want to be photographed, and I will offer wardrobe suggestions. This will be the perfect time to tell me your concerns or as any questions! Call, text or email me! (scroll to the bottom of the page or go here!)
Do I bring my own clothes? What do I wear?
At the consultation I will provide you with a welcome packet that has tips about what to wear. We will discuss what photographs well and what doesn’t. I do have a small studio wardrobe you are welcome to look through and try on while you are here so you know in advance if they work for you or not. For a full portrait session you can bring 4-5 outfits that you love.
Is hair and makeup included? Can I save money if I do my own?
Professional hair styling and makeup is included in the session fee. This is a complimentary service so if you choose to do it yourself the price is still the same.
Will you be able to get a good picture of me? I am NOT photogenic.
I have spent years learning posing for various body types and different lighting techniques for male vs female, older vs. younger etc. It is my goal to show you the very best portrait you have seen of yourself. It is not your job to be photogenic! You will be relaxed, at ease and we will just have fun during your session – no pressure to be perfect! I will guide you through every pose! You don’t need to worry about anything – I’ve got you!
How long will a session take?
Generally my boudoir portrait sessions can take anywhere from 3-5 hours depending on various factors including how many outfit changes, etc.
