Hi, I'm Kimberly Benfield, and I would love to work with you. As a photographer, I seek out and celebrate beauty in the many ways it manifests. I work to capture the beauty in each high school senior, each child, and each family. To this end, I believe it is my job to help my subjects feel at ease, so that their inner beauty can more readily shine through. It is not merely that the people I photograph are beautiful, however, but the moments of unrestrained expression that capture my heart and my lens. It is the moment of tender love displayed between and father and his daughter, the determination of siblings blowing dandelion seeds, or the uninhibited laughter of a high school senior; these are the moments I seek to facilitate and the ones I most love to capture.
It is my job to make sure I can step out of the way, allowing these organic moments to happen in front of my camera. As I work, I make suggestions on how to sit or stand, perhaps encouraging a lean towards the camera or a tilt of the head to one side. These can facilitate and encourage even more natural movements in my subjects, easing them to be more organic with their expressions and helping my lens find flattering angles. However, I stay away from imposing rigid poses, because doing so both decreases the flow of the session and causes me to miss out on finding the most beautiful moments of all. When the subject can stop thinking about how they are posing, that is when their most true and beautiful essence is made available to capture. I’m not going to be able to capture the love between mother and daughter if the two are focused on crossing their ankles and holding their hands “just so.” In other words, I work hard to create a space in which people can relax, be fully themselves, and in order to do that, I have to know when to move out of the way. I love what I do, and am deeply honored that I get to share such intimate moments with individuals and families like yours. As your photographer, I’m always looking for the subtle and beautiful ways you interact with each other, the special ways only you smile, and all the beautiful, natural ways you express yourself. I don’t create beautiful images. That’s what you do. I’m just the lucky one that gets to capture them.I look forward to working with you! Please give me a call at 303-854-4236 or send me a message with my contact form. I'll respond promptly!
My Services, Your Investment
It is important to me that you know what to expect for prices and fees before booking. While each sitting is tailored specifically to you, I have put together three main portrait sitting packages that can meet a variety of needs: Traditional Full Session Portrait Package, Half Session Portrait Package, and Short & Sweet Portrait Package.
Traditional Full Session Portrait Package:
$480 covers a 1 to 2 hour sitting fee on location or at my home studio and full resolution download access to all fully edited photos. I take multiple photos and work the location for different backgrounds and lighting. With families I will take multiple arrangements and groupings within the family as well as taking individual photos. With Individuals I can accommodate different looks and encourage multiple outfit changes. Within a week of the session I will upload fully edited photos to a private gallery on my website.
You may purchase professional prints directly from my website. If you add a photo to your cart you can see a complete list of prices for the many products offered with my professional printer.
Here is a selection of prices for the most popular products:
5x7 - $14
8x10 - $20
11x14 - $28
16x20 - $44
$100/hour for session time lasting more than two hours. This also will generate additional photos to be added to your gallery.
$20 extra for high school senior photo shoots for working with high school and sending photo digitally to meet specifications.
Half Session Portrait Package
$330 covers a 1/2 hour to one hour sitting fee on location or at my home studio. This session works similar to the Traditional Full Session, however, I am shooting with fewer photos in mind. I will upload between 30 and 50 images to a proofing gallery for you to choose your favorite 10 images for me to edit and retouch. You will then have full resolution digital download access to a finished gallery with these selected 10 images. Professional prints can be purchased directly from my website with the same prices as listed above.
Short & Sweet Portrait Package
$200 covers a 1/2 hour sitting fee and two full resolution photos. My main focus is to get one or two photos that will suit your needs perfectly. This may be a family grouping to display at your home or on a holiday card, or it may be a headshot to be used professionally. I will take several photos and upload them to a private gallery on my website. You are then may select your favorite two images from this grouping for me to edit and add the finishing professional touches. Professional prints can be purchased directly from my website with the same prices as listed above.
The three packages listed above are designed to meet the needs of a variety of portraiture, including family portraits, high school seniors, child portraits, engagement photos, headshots, and pet photography but absolutely can be modified for your needs. If you are interested in something different please don't hesitate to ask. I am more than happy to create a package custom designed for you. I also am happy to give you a quote for your event or commercial photography project. Please contact me for a quote.

"Our family loved our pictures! It is the first time that we loved all of the pictures and had a hard time picking a favorite one. The pictures turned out great and we received lots of compliments from family and friends that saw them. Kim does such a beautiful job and her pricing is reasonable. Her pictures are amazing and great quality!"
"Kimberly Benfield's photography is unbeatable! If you're looking for someone to capture your family's personalities through a snapshot, Kim is the perfect person for the job. Kim photographed my husband and I for our engagement photos before we were married, and then again once we were married, adopted a dog, got pregnant, and wanted "we're expecting" family photos. Every picture she takes comes out amazing. She has an ideal studio space in her house and she's also willing to do outside pictures at places of your choice. She's flexible, accommodating, and very talented. You'll be happy you chose her as your photographer!"
"I can't say enough about Kim's incredible talent at taking not only pictures, but memories of life's precious moments. Kim always takes time to get truly know her clients in order to capture the uniqueness of every individual from babies to seniors and even pets! Her calm energy is contagious and puts everyone at ease. Kim goes the extra mile to get just the right shot and is always willing to travel to various locations just to get it right. We won't go anywhere else!"
"Kim is not only an extremely talented photographer she is a wonderful lady. We had a great time in our family sitting with her. She created some beautiful pictures of our family and incredible senior pictures for our son. Her love for life and her kind heart are an inspiration for every one she comes in contact with. We are so looking forward to our next round of portraits with her!"
"My daughter loved working with Kim for her Senior Photos. Kim really captured who Paige is and didn’t just recreate the “standard” senior photos that every kid has. She took her time with Paige and really made her feel like she had input into what they did. Kim was willing to go above and beyond to include letting us drag our keyboard out into a field for a set of photos. On top of that Kim recommended the metallic paper which was perfect with our photos. Last, but not least, the whole process was very affordable. I kind of felt like she didn’t charge us enough!"
