Kim comes from a crazy and eclectic background, from the running the streets of San Francisco at 8 and using the whole city as her playground. From sneaking into the zoo, the museums, muni, the Japanese tea garden, Cliff House, Golden Gate Park, and Sunset Beach, to modeling in Elite in New York, Paris and San Francisco, dancing at studio 54, to being MK Fishers bus girl at Wednesdays' lunch at the once infamous Au Rulias, to becoming the youngest model agent scout and booker in the world, and managing the new faces of City Model Management. Married, with 5 children, now an artist, photographer, storyteller, homemaker, gardener, dog owner and a huge appetite for knowledge.
Kim's background in fashion editorial has created a photography style that is a mix of fashion editorial and artistic photojournalism. Kim was an editorial model in New York and Paris with Elite. As an agent in San Francisco she developed model portfolios with an editorial feel. As an artist she has cultivated her artistic eye to create a calm and enjoyable method encapsulating the spirit of her subjects essence and beauty. She skillfully directs her subjects to create an emotionally filled portrait. She brings fashionable style to her photography.
