Merry Christmas

I had to get a picture of my 4 little girlies wearing their Christmas dresses before the year was over.  We couldn't get this done on Christmas eve because we ran out of time.  It too soooooo long curling everyones hair and polishing nails.  LOL!!!  The joys of having 4 little princesses. 

Pretty little Emma

I had so much fun taking pictures of pretty little Emma today.  She is so blessed to have such a wonderful loving family!!

I have had this piece of fabric floating around the studio for a year now and its about time I put it up on the wall to try it out.  Why did I not do this sooner?????  I am loving the red damask with the pettiskirt.  Amelia is at that age where it gets tricky to pose her for pics.  Shes not sitting up quite yet and I don't want to always lay her on her back.  Well, the bumbo works great and she also needed some tummy time.  She is such a happy little camper!!  We put the space heater right next to her and Olivia was making her smile.  You can pretty much make eye contact with her and she smiles.  What a sweetheart!!!  I just love her so much!!

Baby Amelia

I had a little free time on my hands this afternoon and decided to peek through some pics of baby Amelia from July.  I simply cannot believe how fast time has gone by.  She was only 10 days old in this picture and now she is wanting to sit up and eat baby food already.  This little smile on her face just melts my heart.

3 of my girls

Ok, I just had to post this new pics of my 3 big girls modeling some new pettiskirts from Jessiegirlclothing.  We headed downtown to capture some urban shots when this guys comes walking by with a very interesting mohawk.  This is the expression they all had.  I guess we don't get out  much. LOL!!!!

Fall is here and this is one of the busiest times at Kimberly V Photography.  I have been doing LOTS of sessions each week and am going to be needing some time to catch up soon.  :0  I have booked a lot over the last couple of days and my schedule is getting tighter.  This is a great time to get some fresh new pictures for Christmas cards, just be sure to give yourselves plenty of time as it may take up to 3 weeks to get your proof book back.  I wish I could do more as I am so passionate about photography, but I also need to be there for my family especially having a new baby girl.  I may be able to squeeze in a couple more before the fall colors are gone, just shoot me an email if you are interested.   During this time don't forget to take the time to go for long walks and breath in lots of fresh air.  I love to go hiking in the woods and check out all the beautiful colors while getting some exercise.  I have been taking my camera when my friend Debbie and I go for our morning hike and have had a great time capturing some  images of baby Amelia.  Before you know it winter will be here.  I am not a huge fan of winter because I can't photograph baby's outside and I also like to be nice and warm.  I can't complain about it because it's Olivia's favorite season (not totally sure why), but as we all know in a blink of an eye it will be summertime again.  :)  Woo Hoo!

Beautiful family

Last night I had the priviledge of photographing a wonderful family... beautiful children and a beautiful mommy.  I had such a great time working with them and am excited to present them with some wonderful fall photos. The only thing missing was their daddy who recently made the magnicifant trip to be with Jesus.  It was evident that he was watching over them as they were being photographed because the lighting was perfect and a cloud appeared at the exact moment that we needed it to be there.  It was supposed to rain yesterday so I was not sure if we would even be able to get together, but as we went to the park to take the pictures just enough sun came out and calmed down the wind.  It was Awesome!!!  What a blessing.

I stopped at the fabric store today to pick up some new bright colors that I thought would be fun!! Love these colors!! What do you think???

Sunday, September 26, 2010


I just had to post this picture of Amelia because I thought she looked so pretty. She is now the lightest sleeper so I am very thankful I got these pictures when I did. :)

New chair (old)

I love it when I find a fun new piece of furniture to photograph!!! Carollynn had found me a great desk chair on craigslist and when I went to pick it up they had this wonderful chair in their garage as well for a great deal of $10 - totally in my budget. I was pretty fired up about it so my supermodel Naomi agreed to sit on it for a couple of shots. Here is what we came up with so far. She is just so stinkin' cute!!!

A Joyful Vision

Today I was photograping some pieces for an Etsy shop called "A Joyful Vision". I just LOVE the fabrics that she uses. Naomi was super excited too because as we were starting to think about our bedtime routine she was asking if I would take her picture. Well....of course I could not say no to that so I passed off baby Amelia to daddy and threw a chair in the back of the van. Off to the park we went and found a benefit to the ragweed. what great background color!!! Naomi was loving it and her sisters were a bit jealous that they could not come along. I asked it they wanted to do pictures tonight and were later regretting that they said "no". Tommorow we are heading downtown so I am sure their will be more pictures to come.

Oh goodness, its 9:30pm and my kitchen is an absolute diaster!!! After posting these pics I better get a few things picked up so I can find my counter again.

Beach pictures

One of my very favorite places to go is the beach, I could just stay there all day. There is something about the way I feel when I am sitting in the sand with the gentle breeze on my face. I have been dreaming of getting some pictures of Amelia on the beach and had several opportunities to do so this week. All in the last few days we shot in Sheboygan, Peninsula State Park and the Sand Dunes in Door County. I am attaching a fun couple of pics to show you how we safely capture the "sling shot." It takes a lot of patience and balance. :)

Photography playdate

So my friend Jennifer came over today to get the babys together so the mommys could take pictures of them. I just had to post a pic of how things are done behind the scenes. Here is Jennifer breastfeeding baby Laela while I am photographing baby Amelia in the basket. (I also posted the final result) LOL!!!! This is how we mommy's work!! Some days we spend 90 percent of the time nursing our babys just to get them to sleep. That's why they are so chunky!!! LOLOL!!!!

Baby Amelia has arrived!!

Our newest addition to the Van Sistine arrived on the evening of July 6th at home!! Amelia Elizabeth weighing 9lbs, 2oz and 21 inches long. It was the most wonderful home birth right here in my very own whirlpool tub. I wish I would have done this much sooner, I felt so great to have the comforts of home like my own bed, tub and of course yummy treats. After a day of swimming and walking I finally asked my midwife to break my water at around 9:30pm since I was already dialated to 8cm!!! Within an hour Amelia arrived healthy and happy. We feel so blessed to have been given another daughter. I will be taking a few weeks off to enjoy all of our 4 beautiful girls!!

Sweet Funky Vintage

I started shooting for another boutique this week and thought I would share some of the images with you. They are going to be putting these to print in their catalog so I am super excited!!! My dream is to one day shoot a childrens clothing catalog so right now I am trying to build up my portfolio. This boutique is called "Sweet Funky Vintage". They are currently in the process of having all of the clothing photographed so I am not sure when they will be updating their site and blog.

9 months along

OMG, it's like I completely forgot about blogging as I am waiting for our new baby to arrive. Why does it have to be so hard at the end? I get so frusterated when people ask if I had that baby yet or when they laugh at how big my belly is. So, I still thought I would post one of my recent pics that my good friend Stacy shot for me. She is going to be photographing the birth for us so I am really excited to be able to create a book of memories of this special event.
We have been documenting every step of this pregnancy and I am praying for a really special birth as well. I would love any prayers from you all that the delivery goes wonderfully!! I am planning my first water birth so we will see if it really is less painful like all the books say. LOL!! Hopefully soon I will be posting newborn pics to share with all of you. I am only 9 days away from my due date, but sooner would be just great too!!!

Tonights trunk show

So as I was setting up for tonights trunk show Naomi spotted this adorable bird dress and just had to have it. So, needless to say we are buying the sample dress from the trunk. I was just told that there is a matching dress that can be made for her American Girl doll - how wonderful is that for a 3 year old!!! I am excited for all ladies to come and visit me!!!

A day in the life of a photographer

I had to share a couple of images from todays shoot. As photographers we have a really special bond and we love to get together to take pictures. It's always funny to watch other photographers copy our work and then post it on their blog or website!! LOL We really do get a kick out of that. Today we were all photographers photographing each other. My friend Jennifer is due to have her baby on Thursday and i am only 8 weeks away. We thought this would be the perfect time to capture this moment in our lives before the little bundles of joy arrived. My very good friend Stacy is an awesome photographer and she has been kind enough to capture some really fun pictures of me during this pregnancy. I am pretty sure this is my last pregnancy so I really wanted to have some fun memories!!!

Our little friend Sophia came over for a visit tonight so her mommy could play dress up with her and I could play photographer. I think she is learning that this is way more fun for her mommy and me. LOL!! I just love to photograph Sophia and her beautiful eyes!!!

Growing belly

My belly seems to be growing a little more each day and I'm sure it doesn't help that I have been making chocolate chip cookies like crazy!!! I am just amazed and how much this baby moves around and spins in circles, I guess that's what happens when it is your 4th child and everything is already stretched out inside. LOL The girls are so very excited about their new baby sister or brother that is due in only 13 weeks. I am working hard to stay on top of sessions to get them proofed and back to you all so that I can relax for just a bit when our new arrival comes.

I had Rich take some belly shots this weekend after church on Sunday. I like to document each step of this amazing journey. ;)

Great day!!

I just finished up a wonderful shoot outdoors today. I love these children, they are so beautiful and did such a great job. It felt awesome to get outdoors and capture some fun new images. Here is a sneak peek.
