Kim Hildebrand is an award-winning newborn and family photographer, instructor and mentor based in Seattle, Washington. Her passion for film photography started at an early age, spurred by her dad’s love for visual storytelling. Kim loves to incorporate that element of storytelling with a creative twist in her lifestyle work with newborns, kids, and families. Kim believes that family IS home, and she loves capturing those quiet and intimate connections that occur every day behind your front door, not just a highlight reel. Chaos and the everyday mess of family life are also featured in her work since she feels strongly that perfection is elusive and overrated. Kim is passionate about using film and loves how it forces her to slow down, shoot with more intention, and spend less time on her computer. She also regularly incorporates flash in her work and loves teaching other photographers about both! When Kim is not working, she can be found eating tacos or planning her next family adventure.
