• About-Kimberlee


My name is: Kimberlee West.
I’m married to: my handsome hubby, nicknamed “Prince Eric.”  He turned my world upside-down when I reconnected with him a few years ago (we were old friends/acquaintances from college).  In the summer of 2011 he asked me to marry him, I moved to live in his city, and in October 2011 we were married!  We had a beautiful outdoor ceremony in the forest, overlooking water – it was such a memorable day (go check out the pics!).  I am so happy to have found this amazing kind of love, and I’m so thankful that God brought Eric & I together.
I live in: a small town in Washington State!  It is VERY different from San Diego, but I do love it.  I still travel to San Diego on a regular basis to be a part of the happenings in the studio.  
I’m passionate about: my faith in Jesus Christ… making women feel beautiful… and nonprofit organizations that are making a difference in the lives of people living in poverty.
I fell in love with boudoir because: Marissa convinced me that I HAD to fall in love with boudoir (she is very persuasive sometimes).  😉  I actually wasn’t sure that I wanted to shoot boudoir, but after my first shoot, I was completely hooked.  I was able to see the power that boudoir can have, in giving a woman confidence!  
I’ve been shooting boudoir since: 2006.
My favorite thing about my job is: Watching a woman gain a sense of confidence.  It is amazing to see a woman’s transformation through the boudoir photography experience.  
A fun fact about myself that most people don’t know: I have a fear of birds.  Weird, I know.
Some of my hobbies are: Reading, hiking, 
On my weekends, I love to: relax with my hubby, BBQ with friends, and take a break from work (NO checking email allowed!)  I love taking adventures, camping, and exploring new places.  
My favorite place to vacation is: France!
My all-time favorite book is: Fiction: Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers.
I want to be remembered for:  Loving God… loving my family… and being kind & generous with the people I come into contact with.
