"Art is standing with one hand extended into the universe and one hand extended into the world, and letting ourselves be a conduit for passing energy." ~Albert Einstein

This quote from Albert Einstein encompasses what it is like for me as a photographer and artist. This quote connects me to a greater purpose beyond putting paint on my canvas or clicking my shutter. I feel a personal calling as an artist to invite you into this place of beauty and creativity.

When I photograph I connect people to each other, to their story, to their passions, and to the viewer.

In 25 years of photographing, I have had front row access to the best moments of life. Birth, families, proposals, weddings, portraits, concerts, events, and travel.

I am now booking 2023-2024. I look forward to creating with you! Contact me today!

“Kim Zahnow is hands down my favorite photographer. She has photographed my family pictures, maternity pictures and senior pictures for 2 of my 9 kids (#3 is next year!).
No other photographer has ever made me feel more relaxed and natural while taking pictures and I am never disappointed with the results. I recommend her every time someone I know says they are looking for a photographer.”

—Cindy Faubert

She coordinated with me not only about what kinds of pictures and style we wanted for our wedding photos, She was professional, engaged, and immediately put us at ease with her kindness and fun personality. This is all apart from her extraordinary talent. Our photos are gorgeous! She was incredible to work with and I could not recommend her enough!”
