Kim Cunningham Photography

My name is Kim Cunningham and I am the girl behind the camera. I am a homeschooling mother of three who loves capturing moments. My passion for photography began during my years living as a missionary in Thailand. I spent eight years overseas working as well as beginning and completing my family there. Because that time was so special, I took many pictures trying to bottle up all the memories and experiences. Moments are fleeting and if we don’t capture them right away, we lose them to time. I watched babies become toddlers, and toddlers became honest to goodness big kids! Chubbiness gave way to slender, sleek physiques. How often I wanted to stop the clock and keep them as they were! That’s what photography does. Portraits capture the moments that we in treasure our hearts. Portraits are an investment to posterity, a way of looking into the past. My passion is to capture people in the everyday moments. I am a natural light, lifestyle photographer. I love capturing the simple, natural moments of time. Tomorrow, we are all just a little different than we are today. That’s why it is important to capture the moments now! Let me help you capture the light!

For the 2012-2013 school year, I will offer mini-sessions for homeschoolers.  These sessions are a great way to get a “school” portrait for your children.  For $10 per child, you will get a 15 minute photo session taken outdoors.  You will receive a disk of 5-10 images, depending on the number of children being photographed in the session.  These sessions are for currently homeschooled children only! No outfit changes, please.

Fall and Christmas mini-sessions: These will be held mid-October through mid- November.  Investment of $100 includes a 30 minute mini-session, and 10 disk images.  This session is great for securing a memorable Christmas Card photo!  No outfit changes during mini-sessions due to time constraints.   If you would like more time and outfit changes, please schedule a regular photo session at  2012 regular fees.

All 2012 photo sessions will end November 19th for the year, with the exception of Newborn sessions.  2013 rates will be posted in late November.

Note to parents:  My vision is to capture your child’s natural personality and expression.  It is very tempting for parents to step in and instruct their children to smile or pose a certain way. I certainly understand that with 3 children of my own!   During a session, I request that parents let me take the lead to capture the best images possible. I come with a vision and a plan.  Please do not instruct your children to “say cheese”, smile or pose. A cheesy smile is never pretty. Sometimes a smile is not what I am going for at all! I see the moments in my view finder and I need be able to capture them.  Be aware of their behavior, but please do not direct, force, or scold them. Relax. If I need you, I promise to ask for your assistance.  Thank you for your cooperation.
