ABOUT US

Hi, I’m Kimber, and I love to photograph pregnant mamas, pregnant mamas underwater, naked mamas (boudoir), and kick@ss, adventurous couples! Fun fact: I met the love of my life on a dive trip in Panama! We really connected over our love of science, and he hired me to assist with his cave diving research (he didn’t really have a choice, I was the only undergrad with the necessary certification!). 

Now, I’m the mom of one wild boy and goldendoodle puppy, named Quentin Quarantino (I’ve been stuck at home for a while)! My son was our miracle baby and arrived after a miscarriage, years of infertility, and long, excruciating battle with postpartum depression. I’m a big believer in voicing my story to encourage others in similar places and to (hopefully) help lessen the stigma surrounding mental illness. If you ever need to chat, please reach out!
 
 When I’m not out shooting or exploring, I enjoy reading, talking to my houseplants, and staying heavily caffeinated. I live to travel and have been fortunate enough to photograph 24 countries so far. One of my goals is to take my son to all 50 states before his high school graduation!
 
I love helping other photographers learn- especially with underwater work! If you’re an aspiring underwater photographer, please feel welcome to join my education group on Facebook (Underwater Portraiture). I also offer private and group mentoring as well. 
 
At Water Bear Photography, we do not discriminate against age, gender, sexual orientation, ability, etc. Proud LGBTQ+ ally. Really the only kind of people I don’t like, are mean ones. Sorry, not sorry.

Kimber and Will were absolutely amazing. Professional, on time, detail oriented and resourceful. They left no picture behind, between different poses and traveling throughout the venue, they captured the smallest little details between my husband and I, from capturing the laughing outbursts to simple smiles to each other. If I didn’t hire Kimber I would of had her as one of my bridesmaids! They were like ninja’s, going through our photos, they both were so quick at grabbing different angles that I didn’t even realized they got, thank god. They were my imagination for picture perfect moments for my family and I.
