For those of you who haven't had a session with me here's a little run down about me, my sessions and what to expect when you receive your gallery.
I'm Kim, the owner of Kimberleigh Schneider Photography & Doula Services. As a Birth & Lifestyle photographer and doula I have to say that I have a deep love for all things that surround Motherhood. Whether it’s supporting you before, during or after your pregnancy or capturing your gorgeous baby bump, birth, baby, breastfeeding and your family.
I absolutely love living and working in Wilmington, there are so many beautiful, fun and unique locations here. Which is why you can typically, catch me playing at the beach with my kids, strolling around one of Wilmington's many antique shops or reading at my favorite coffee shop.
My love for photography started in my early teens with my great-grandfathers Pentax film camera. However, my love for lifestyle photography started when my kiddos arrived in the world and since then, I've yet to put my camera down.
When it comes to my work, I know that I'm not the photographer for everyone and that's totally okay. My style is more lifestyle and documentary than full on posed and studio sessions. I love capturing you as you truly are and all of your beautiful flaws; which is why I don't use photoshop on my images. However, I do understand that not everyone is comfortable in front of the camera, so I'm always willing to work with you and that may mean that a more posed session works best for you. But do know that when you hire me, I feel that it's important to capture you and your loved ones at that very moment, messy hair and all!
When it comes to your sessions, I'd like to describe it as a great way to cozy up to your partner and family, chat with them, even laugh with them! I also want to emphasize that it's okay for the kids to run around and be themselves. No need to stress because I'm here to capture them as they are. I also want to point out that my sessions do not have a set amount of images, this is because your gallery will have as many images as I'm okay to share with you and there are no hidden fees. All of my prices are the prices that you pay along with any extras that you may choose.
As a Birth Doula I will help you get ready for your baby’s arrival with 2 prenatal visits where we become better acquainted, build your birth plan and familiarize you and your birth partner with comfort/relaxation methods. Provide continuous doula support through your labor and one postpartum follow-up meeting. As your doula, I will be on-call 24 hours a day from 37-42 weeks and guarantee a back-up doula if needed. Communication starts at the day of hire till about 6 weeks postpartum. I do limit the number of births I take on per month to ensure my availability. Throughout your pregnancy and during labor & delivery, I am there for you and your birth partner whether it’s for non-biased, evidence-based information, physical support, emotional support and/or if you just need me to sit in your room to simply hold space for you at any time.
If you haven't worked with me before and would like to see more of my style, you can find more of my work on Instagram and Facebook.
Thank you for your support
