hey, I'm Kim!

hey, I'm Kim!

I am a Metro Detroit award winning & published portrait Photographer ;)

I'm also a wife, boy mom, new grandmother, dog mom & so much more.

Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the web.

All of my life, creative expression has been my driving force. Standing apart from the crowd and doing things a little different is what I do best. I am constantly trying to find new ways to grow.

 My journey into photography began as an artistic person, I have always loved art.  And way back when I was in middle school, I was always the one with the camera when out with friends – I just hated the week long wait to see if you got anything good (back then we had to develop our film). But when I had my own kids, I wanted to capture every milestone, from messy cake faces to action sports shots to graduation day. I can't stop freezing time & creating these snapshots so when I look back at these one day, it will bring me right back to that very moment. When it comes to family, the moments feel like they flew by, time passes so quickly, I want to remember it all.

Fast forward to now, for 16 years, I have made a career out of capturing your most precious and priceless moments and I couldn’t be happier – I get to do what I love and provide you with lasting memories at the same time!

You want portraits that capture the beauty and amazingness in the faces of the people you love most. If you’re a senior, you want your portraits to be unique and fresh, and all about you, right? Let’s do that! Let’s go out and capture the stuff that makes you, YOU. If you are a parent, you want portraits on your wall that celebrate these people you love so fiercely that you call your tribe. And, because I am also a parent of 3 boys, I GET IT…part of my goal for you parents is to give you portraits that remind you that you love your kids, even on those days, they drive us crazy ;)

 Let’s tell your story. Our stories are crafted in milestones, and in moments. Let’s capture those moments, those feelings, and those faces, so that you can see and enjoy them every day. To dig in more, let’s chat and get you on my schedule! Don’t let time slip by without capturing these memories with beautiful, priceless images! #248.770.8060.

“Kim is awesome! I have used her for all 3 of my kid's senior pictures and would not go anywhere else. She is reasonably priced, spends a lot of time with each shoot, and has an excellent eye for photography. I love how she posts her pictures on ShootProof with a link. All family members can create a favorites list and then order the pictures right from there. The prices are great. You can order pictures in black and white and all sizes and finish. She also gives you a few digital favorites in her packages.”

I highly recommend Kim, she does an amazing job! She truly cares about her work and it shows. Very easy to work with and pretty quick with getting the gallery together. We’ve done family pictures in the past and we loved her so much we ended up having my daughters senior pics done last fall. Only problem we had was choosing which pics we wanted to hand out because they were all so good Thank you Kim!”

Kim was wonderful to work with! We were very pleased with her photos of my son who is a senior in high school. Her pictures are high quality, fun, and we couldn't be happier. We are a repeat customer as she also took my daughter's senior pictures and loved them! Kim made both photo shoots a fun experience and even travelled to our favorite destination to get perfect pictures. We highly recommend Kimberly Caldwelll Legree Photography!”

“Kimberly Caldwell Photography is wonderful and I highly recommend her! She is a true artist and master of her work. She is dedicated to her craft and takes time to ensure you are happy with her pictures. Kimberly took my daughter’s senior pictures and they were absolutely incredible. We couldn’t choose just one, so bought the entire photo shoot! She has just completed my son’s senior pictures, and once again we are extremely pleased. There are so many pictures to choose from and we love them all.”

Starting with Kim asking my daughter beforehand what she wanted and what locations she was interested in. Kim not only found unique locations as backdrops, she captured my daughter’s personality and natural demeanor. This is where Kim stands out amongst other photographers! Kim spent several hours taking pictures, making my daughter laugh and feel at ease. She promptly had them ready for”

“Kimberly is AMAZING! My son’s Senior pics turned out exactly how I was hoping for. She is patient, and kind. She made my son giggle EVERY TIME for those “natural” smile pics. My son said “she is so nice, she made it not so bad”! Bravo Kimberly. Can’t wait for you to do my daughter in 2 years!”

“We were referred to Kimberly by a co-worker. She is wonderful! She did my daughter’s senior pictures- they turned out amazing.

She made sure she was at ease and happy with the shots. Highly recommend.”
