…NOTES FROM CLIENTS…

We feel so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with the beautiful and extremely talented Kimmy Howard. She has a way of making each babies inner beauty show through each of her photographs- she does this in a way that captures the purity and fragility that make newborns so special! When we initially stumbled onto Kimmy’s work we thought it was simply for inspiration. We live in Wisconsin and never imagined driving 6 hours, with a 6 day old newborn, in the depth of winter for a newborn session! I spent weeks looking for a photographer in cities surrounding us and as far as Chicago, but in my opinion, no one’s work compared with Kimmy’s! Once we decided to book, she found a way to fit us in her tight schedule. You can imagine our delight when we arrived for the shoot and discovered Kimmys work is a direct reflection of who she is as a woman! Lovely, patient, calm, focused, sweet, sincerely genuine, comforting, extremely professional! I felt so safe with my tiny baby loving moved and positioned in her care. I highly recommend Kimmy to anyone who wishes to have pictures of their new little love, that they can feel confident are a quality and beauty that will be enjoyed and treasured forever!

We found out about Kimmy Howard Photography through a friend that had her baby a couple of months before our baby was due. We loved the photographs that Kimmy took of our friend’s baby and, luckily, Kimmy was able to set something up with us for a newborn session. Even though our baby arrived a week later than we anticipated, Kimmy was flexible enough to make sure we would get precious pictures taken during the first week. We have adored all of the work we have received from Kimmy ever since! We have worked with Kimmy now on three separate occasions and without fail, during some point of each session, our daughter has been less than cooperative. Somehow Kimmy always surprises us and is able to get a TON of great shots! Kimmy has a keen eye for what makes a great photograph and is a pleasure to work with. She is flexible and laid back. Kimmy always has so many ideas and has the cutest accessories and props! You’ll also be surprised at how charming everything is packed when you receive your order! She really goes out of her way to make sure you are pleased with everything. Also, she offers way more than just the basic 4×6 prints; so far we’ve ordered newborn announcements and Christmas cards in addition to our beautiful prints. Her products are so unique!

My husband & I have had the pleasure of working with Kimmy on two separate occasions- an anniversary/special occasion session, and a family session with our 3 young daughters. Both sessions went smoothly, and Kimmy proved her ability to balance her God-given talents and maintain professionalism.
Our family planned out what types of poses we wanted, but she directed and suggested, so that things flowed naturally, and she captured us in our element! Her attention to the lighting that nature lends, is what makes her work so real and beautiful! While she was photographing our family all together, I felt like our kids were not cooperating at the same times, & that it would be a long-shot to come away with 1 or 2 “print worthy” family photos…BUT we were surprised & blessed to see the images she presented us with!! I highly recommend her if you’re looking for some amazing pictures to share, or to put up on the walls in your home! We treasure ours! Thanks Kimmy!

You capture precious images of my newborn. You created such a relaxing atmosphere and allowed me to watch, and that was a true blessing for this busy mama! You are talented, gentle, kind, soft-spoken, intelligent, and fun, and those characteristics all contribute to your being a wonderful photographer. For as long as I’m on this earth, I will treasure the gift you gave us of taking pictures of our baby girl.

Working with Kimmy was completely effortless. She has the knowledge, confidence, and talent to make your session everything you desire. I always walk away feeling great about what she captured and receive so many compliments on our pictures. Plus, she’s incredibly fast with teaser pics and proofs. I would recommend her to anyone I know!

We met Kimmy at our son’s newborn pictures in 2009 and have used her as our newborn, family and child photographer ever since! She does AMAZING work! Her natural lighting, soft and organic feel is so her! Her sweet and gentle personality shines through her work! She is so calm and relaxed during our sessions and it makes us feel the same! It has been so wonderful to watch her business grow from when she first started to 5 years later!

Kimmy Howard isn’t just a photographer. She really cares about her clients. She takes so much personal time making sure that we were comfortable during our photo session. She has such an amazing gift and a way with that camera! We were beyond blessed to have her capture our little miracle Grey! I wouldn’t recommend anyone else to capture our amazing family!

Kimmy has a gift.  It is an intangible gift of capturing amazing photos and turning them into masterpieces to be enjoyed for years to come!  Working with Kimmy is an absolute joy.  She is warm, friendly, PATIENT (which is key in photographing children), and so much fun to work with.  She goes above and beyond the job description of a typical photographer, ensuring everybody is comfortable and ultimately pleased with their photos.  Kimmy Howard Photography is the BEST!!!

My husband and I, as well as the lady who checked us out at the grocery store, all of the pharmacy technicians, the teller at the bank, the nurses and doctors at our appointment today, and all of my friends on Facebook just LOVE the pictures you took of my little girl (I have been showing them off all day!!). We are really looking forward to seeing the rest! 🙂

kimmy! we are freaking out! WE LOVE THEM! I was smiling sooo big looking at them. I callec Jack (he is at work) and so we were able to look at them together (over the phone :) We are so happy with them. You captured some great moments

 
THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL AND HAVE JUST GIVEN ME THE BIGGEST SMILE!!!!!  I LOVE THEM!!!  I can’t wait to see more!!!!!  :0)  We heart Kimmy Howard!!!!  Thank you soooo much!
 
Browsing through Kimmy’s photography online is just as relaxing and entertaining for me as curling up on the couch to watch my favorite movie. She has such a gift for capturing joy and serenity in her work. Because of distance, I have only had the privilege of working with Kimmy on a product order rather than an actual session, but I can attest to her sweet and helpful communication and service and to her passion for helping others to capture beautiful moments with their loved ones. Even though it is only text, in each email facebook response that I have received, I can hear her warmth and gracious spirit shining through. I hope that someday I can have the blessing of her taking photos of our family!
 
There was an unexpected death in my family and I’ve been back home.  I want you to know a couple days ago I showed the online gallery and blog to my family.  The pictures were amazing and very uplifting for my family during this difficult time. 
 
Good photographers take excellent pictures, but great ones help make memories. We are grateful for Kimmy’s thoughtfulness and genuine care in her approach to photography and creating memories for our family.
 
The pictures you took are some of the most beautiful I have ever seen.  You are truely talented.  I have passed your name & website onto like 10 people or more.
Kimmy’s sweet spirit and calm demeanor is perfect for working with babies, kids, and their parents. She genuinely delights in working with her clients which you experience from the moment you meet her. Kimmy’s work is exceptional and I would highly recommend her to anyone!
 ….WORKSHOP REVIEWS…
I have been a photographer for 4 years but truly wanted to start specializing in newborn photography. When I finally decided to go for it, deciding who I was going to mentor with was a no brainer.  I followed Kimmy Howard on facebook and her images were truly inspiring. I spoke to a couple of different people closer to me to mentor with but they were not as open, kind and encouraging as kimmy was.  I traveled far to come see her but she opened up her home and photography business to us.  We learned everything from start to finish, clients prep, studio prep, posing, wrapping, editing, finishing touches and more.  I learned so much in one short weekend that I have learned from any other courses I have taken. It was intense and surreal to be able to mentor with Kimmy. She is sweet and continues to answer all of my questions even after the workshop. Plus we got tons of newborn props to take home with a workflow guide that I use at every session now! Going to mentor with Kimmy Howard was the best choice I have made to further my photography knowledge and look forward to a long lasting relationship with a truly inspiring photographer.
I absolutely loved Kimmy Howard’s mentoring session. Being 4-on-1, we got individualized help and instruction from Kimmy, while also getting to collaborate with the other attendees. Getting to know and talk with other newborn photographers was priceless, and having a private shopping night before the workshop was the icing on the cake. I learned so much, and I feel extremely confident in applying my new skills to my future clients. I highly recommend this workshop!
