introducing baby cora! | newborn

a lot has changed in my world recently. my husband and i welcomed a sweet baby girl in april, and it is safe to say she has taken our hearts. (along with our sleep!)

introducing cora jane bottalico. i was able to sneak some pictures of her at 13 days old and again at 31 days. she surprises us daily with her growth and changes! i apologize in advance for the amount of photos to come of her in the future, but i can't help myself! a special thank you to my mom, marla, who very generously stepped behind the lens for some pictures of the three of us.

xo, kim


baby axel | newborn

why it has taken me so long to post these newborn photos...i do not know. but, nonetheless, i present to you the sweetest little one: axel. this baby was a dream to photograph! alert, but with not a peep made. he truly made my job easy. his parents did too! a big congrats to andrea and buster on their sweet son. i loved taking these and i am sure he has grown quite a bit in the past couple of months!


emmarose | newborn

i have been holding out on sharing these newborn photos of EmmaRose, but i can't any longer! she is a beauty just like her mama. i have known Leslie since we were little dancers, and so it was a joy to be able to capture her growing family. with three girls and a boy (same combo i grew up with!), i know that this family has so much to look forward to. i am so happy for you guys and want to wish you another big congrats on welcoming another beautiful baby into the world! xo


molly | newborn

welcoming to the world, molly boyle! tricia and stephen are the proud parents of two beautiful girls now. they kept the sex a surprise (so awesome!) and welcomed the doll you see below. she was as precious as she looks honestly - sleepy and sweet. i think her older sister, clara, has a lot to look forward to in having a lifetime buddy and partner in crime. congrats to the family of 4 - couldn't be happier for you guys!

ps. a little shout-out to eight pepperberries who created the sign you see hanging from the nursery wall. how cute? :)

lachlan | newborn

welcome to the world, baby lachlan! it was a pleasure taking this little guy's newborn photos. he is a sweet, sleepy one and quite adorable. his older sister, emerson, joined for a couple of shots, and is equally lovable! a big congrats to the proud parents again!

mckenzie | newborn

meet mckenzie! this little one debuted recently and just so happens to share a birthday with her mama! it is always special to capture a newborn in his or her first few days, but this was especially joyful for me as i was also able to photograph her older brother when he was born. what a treat! congrats to matt, melissa and beckett on welcoming the fourth member of their tribe. xo

baby james | newborn

meet baby james. cutie. pie.

i met sam through book club (what, what?!) and am so happy for her and her husband who welcomed this little bundle of joy recently. we kept it simple with the props and the goal was to just capture him in his most comfortable state: sleeping! one of my favorites though is his zoolander pose, which can be seen below. enjoy and congrats to the beautiful family!

lilly | newborn

jen and levi grew from a family of three to four recently, with the addition of sweet lilly! i had the chance to take some photos of her in the first couple of weeks of being born and am excited to share them here. her big sister, claire, gave her kisses and hugs throughout the shoot - she has grown so much since i took her one year photos!

congrats to the lueken family - your two girls are beautiful!

evie bloss | newborn

beautiful jamie had her baby girl, evie, recently! at three weeks in to their new life as a family of four, i took some pictures of the crew. between little grayson's silliness and lots of laughter, we had some fun getting the pictures below. evie, a sweet doll, slept for much of the session and when she was awake, she was taking everything in with her big blue eyes. a big congrats to the bloss family and thank you for always making my job enjoyable and fun!

avery | newborn

i had the pleasure of meeting this little angel a few weeks ago. baby avery couldn't have been more sweet and content during the shoot. her mom and dad are fellow fsu graduates (go noles!) and it is so apparent how happy they are to welcome her into their lives. i am so excited for the family and wish them a big congrats. below are a few favorites from our session!

baby willa | october newborn session

baby willa, what a beauty you are! i am so excited to share these newborn photos today. it was so wonderful to be able to capture little willa a week in to being born. she was as sweet as can be, sleepy and calm and super patient! special thanks to jenn and kelly for allowing me to photograph their family. it was a pleasure and many congratulations to you!

baby ellis

sara beth and her family welcomed little baby ellis earlier this month. he is a healthy, sweet, alert baby boy and i had the pleasure of taking some newborn photos of the wide-eyed little guy. i love seeing the creative nurseries when taking newborn photos and ellis' little home was filled with character. just take a look at the homemade mobile hanging above the crib - how cute! some favorites from the session are below. congratulations to this beautiful family and their newest addition!

introducing | margaux rose | part I

meet margaux. adorable, red headed, sweet, sleepy, funny margaux. she already has a lot of personality. born fourth of july weekend (she had an early arrival and greeted us on the fifth) she became the first child to my sister, chelsea and my bro-in-law, brian. i love being an aunt...especially when it means i get to spoil her with cute clothes and take photos of her in funny hats.

it is a truly special experience to watch your sister become a mom. chelsea - you're incredibly tender and loving to her already but also so strong (hero). and brian ... well he is a goner. he has his feisty little girl to take care of now. to teach how to paint, fish, and play soccer one day, maybe. or who knows...she may be interested in collecting lizards and poking tadpoles like her mommy used to do. whatever she wants, right?

welcome little peaches! you're perfect.

baby beckett

i had the pleasure of photographing baby beckett last week. at eight days old, his tiny toes and chubby rolls were eaten up by my lens. what a precious thing it is to watch a newborn sleep so soundly! i think his mom and dad were happy to have him quiet for a few minutes too! this past april i photographed mama melissa (click here) so it was absolutely an honor to be able to come in and spend some time capturing the little guy in his first days. thank you for allowing me to do so and congratulations to you and your families! xo

baby clara

welcome to the world, baby clara! i was so excited to meet the little one on a recent shoot with tricia and stephen. she is a doll - so sweet and tiny! tricia and stephen kept the gender a surprise and for some reason i was...fooled! i thought tricia was having a boy for sure. she broke all of the old wise tales that come with carrying a girl...but that just goes to show, life is full of surprises. congrats to the new parents and may all of life's future surprises be as sweet as your new baby!

baby holland

i had the pleasure of photographing 6 day old baby holland, or holly, this past december. she was born 3 days before christmas and couldn't be sweeter. i loved being able to take these photos and it is especially wonderful because i have known her mom, rachel, since high school when we cheered together. funny how time flies! 

here are some favorites of her with her mom, dad, and big brother. congratulations to the beautiful family!
