What our clients say

I am absolutely impressed with the beautiful images that were captured on my daughter’s 1st birthday. Kimber went above and beyond what was expected in setting up the photo set for a few personality pictures and then a cake-smash. She created a beautiful backdrop, paid very close attention to detail, and just exceeded my expectations in executing my ideas and capturing the images that I envisioned. She is great with kids, and makes the studio very baby/kid-friendly. I am so happy to have chosen Waterbear Photography, and I will definitely be choosing them again!

Johana D.

By far one of the best photo sessions my family and I have had. Kimber and her husband were so nice and fun to work with, the had lots of great ideas for poses. Cant wait to work with her again! The pictures are gorgeous!

Samantha D.

I was so impressed with Kimber’s professionalism and attention to detail. She recommended a phenomenal location for my maternity photo shoot, treated me with courtesy and respect, and took incredibly beautiful pictures! I look forward to working with Kimber and her husband again in the future.


I can’t express how happy I am with Kimber’s photography. She has done an amazing job capturing my family and I on numerous occasions. She did my son’s newborn photos, my breastfeeding photos, and most recently my babywearing photos. She’s always been great with my son, Tristan, she works with my schedule and she always asks if there are any particular poses that I was hoping to do. She knows of some of the best places in town to take pictures and her prices are very affordable and fair. And as if all that wasn’t enough, she sweetens the deal even more by bringing along her bouncing, smiley, baby bear 🙂 I will continue to use Kimber to capture my family whenever the occasion calls for some awesome photography!

I had a session with my mom and her dad (papa). I wanted something for my son to be able to see how much his papa loves him. Kimber captured that in the first photo preview, that she showed me. I have loved the photos that I have seen her post of other moms and babies. Breathtaking. I will definitely recommend her to anyone looking to capture memories.

Kimber did an amazing job at capturing the joy and beauty of my first pregnancy! I had two visions (1 – sweet, but not cliche, genuine pictures with my husband & 2 – unique, creative water pictures of my bump). Kimber was spot on with both! She surpassed all my expectations! I never would have thought you could make a 8month pregnant women look so surreal in a bikini underwater! Her fun, energetic personality was an added bonus as well…My husband actually didn’t complain once! It was such a great experience, I already have my newborn shoot booked 🙂 Thank you for everything Kimber!

Justine B.

Kimber is amazing!!! Even though it was our first session with her she nailed it! We just clicked. She had researched ideas for what I had explained to her and she captured what I had envisioned. To top it off… She was working with some of the most challenging subjects… Kids, horses and a dog! I cannot even put into words how much I LOVE her photography and how much we will treasure the photographs she’s done for us! She’s now our go-to for family photos! I can’t wait for the next session!!

Kimber and Will make the best duo. They are both so creative and willing to do anything for the photo! We recently did a family/maternity shoot with them and just received our first sneak preview and cannot express how happy and excited we are with the results. Make your memories last- Book with Water Bear Photography TODAY. You won’t be disappointed.
