My name is Kim Wilcoxson and I've been a photographer all my life, professionally for 7 years. I am the mother of two incredible humans, a daughter, Alyssa and a son Michael. THEY are my WHY.
I am a mother, a partner, a friend, a photographer, a realtor, a lover of nature, animals, yoga, reading, meditation, smores, camping, fishing, COLORADO, long walks, hikes, sunsets, abundance, kindness, PAYING IT FORWARD, education, living in the moment, PRAYER, and most importantly I am in LOVE with LOVE. Did I mention my FAMILY is my WHY? Whew!..........and the list goes on, but that's not why your here...
As a photographer, my photography journey began, well, some 28 years ago, when Alyssa was born, and grew as my family did ( Michael was added 23 years ago). From their first steps to their biggest accomplishments, I have been there, camera in hand. They have been my greatest teachers and my biggest fans. It warms this mamma's heart when my adult kiddos call (and yes they both do) to schedule a photo-session!
I am passionate about people! I am passionate about human connection and emotion! One of the things I love MOST about photography is the magic it holds in freezing a moment and the power it unleashes in each still image. When I look through pictures of my family, it literally takes me back in time and I get to re-live each tender moment again and again. How precious is that!?!
It took me a little while, but about 5 years ago I found my niche and I set out on a pursuit to build a portfolio around connection and emotion. I want every image to captivate, engage, and tell a story.
It is important to me to have a name that represents what I believe (yes, even though it is hard to spell). I believe that true beauty cannot be found on the cover of a magazine and it is not always adequately portrayed in the media. Beauty is something we ALL possess. Something that radiates deep within us. What we perceive to be our own imperfections are indeed what makes us uniquely beautiful. That is what I strive to capture, your inner light, your Luminessence, your radiant inner energy, your emotion, your story.............your BEAUTIFUL YOU!
My biggest lesson as a photographer?
BE ON BOTH SIDES OF THE CAMERA even though I don't like it :) True story, I despise having my picture taken! BUT my kids LOVE it when I do, just as I LOVE it when I see pictures of my precious mom and dad. (I miss you EVERYDAY dad!) They're gonna see more of me, like it or not, and I'm gonna embrace my own imperfections for the love of my WHY!
My studio is the great outdoors. I specialize in outdoor photography and natural light. My favorite shots are the before and after, the in between poses shots (although I do the posed shots too). To me, candid photography tells a story and truly captures the emotions behind the moments, your moments. We all have a story to tell, I hope that you will let me be a part of telling yours.
Be your own kind of beautiful! Stay safe, healthy and well and remember, take time to be on BOTH sides of the camera!
