Behind the Lens

All about Kimberly Kay



My name is Kimberly Kay, I'm a free spirited sensitive soul. A world traveler, an adventurer, a wife, and a mother. I have been fortunate to spend the last twenty years as an award-winning full-time portrait and wedding photographer. I’ve had the privilege of captured love stories in fifteen states and three countries, but my favorite place to work is in beautiful Central Oregon where I reside. There’s no better place in the world to be in love, and I adore nothing more than capturing the amazing moments in beautiful Bend, Oregon.


A little about me personally: I’m a mother of three incredible humans. I'm blessed to be close with my three adult children and spend a lot of my free time making memories with them. I'm lucky to be married to my best friend of sixteen years. My family is everything to me.


Aside from that, you may run into me along the Central Oregon trails hiking, or skiing. I'm a home body at heart and spend hours during the summer fussing over my rose garden, listing to our eclectic vinyl collection, reading books and crocheting. I also split my time in Maui, HI capturing portraits, hiking, shooting, snorkeling, shell collecting. And I'll never turn down a great Mai Tai in paradise.


As an artist I live for documenting imagery that evokes emotion. The authentic moments of maternity, newborns, families and couples "in love" within a breathtaking scenic backdrop or in my studio.
