We are storytellers and dreamers




capturing life with photography and film


Capturing moments of our own kids daily, grown and ever changing started a passion to capture light and emotion for others as well. We are real and fearless as we tell your story through our lenses.


The Wild Child Photography

Inspired by nature, light, and beauty. We love telling your story in the details and movement.  Genuine connection and emotion are evoked because you are experiencing love, laughter, and closeness during your time with us. You can be confident in our approach and comfortable being who you were created to be.

Our goal is to capture your life and family in a way that unique and beautiful. We offer two types of sessions for families: The Heritage Session, and The Cherish Family Collection.   (which includes video!)

We would love to work with you to capture your baby’s first year, business portraits, senior portraits, and boutique school photography.

Our commercial work is expanding! We are excited to work with businesses creating video and stills that bring life and emotion to their workplace and product.

Raising the Bar

Our high standards meet your needs and vision. We walk you step by step from what to expect to displaying your images.

What to expect

Our Heritage Sessions are an incredible opportunity. We have created amazing sessions around the seasonal beauty of Northeast Kansas.  From the blooms of spring flowers to the snow covered pines in winter. Our sessions provide you with room to play and love. Your gallery will have a variety of traditional and emotionally connect portraits.

Our Custom Session and Cherish Family Session are scheduled to meet your specific needs. These sessions offer you a more intimate and tailored experience. They are perfect if you want to capture your family on your family land, in your home, or have a unique timeframe.

Heritage Sessions and Custom/Cherish Sessions work well for families, seniors, children’s milestones and even expended families.

The Cherish Baby session is scheduled typically within two weeks of  your baby’s birth and then when they are sitting and finally walking.

One of the many benefits to working with the  The Wild Child is there are two of us, we are fast and it is always fun and painless. We know working with children (aahemmm… and dads) that sometimes we have a pretty short window. Open communication is key in making sure we walk you through the full process including helping you with your wardrobe if you need it!

Viewing and sales session

We work with you and design your wall’s specifically to meet your needs and budget. We offer framed prints and custom canvas groupings. For those who want it all an album is a gorgeous heirloom keepsake.  Each session offers a preview and design consultation. After your session you will meet we will meet with you in our Holton studio to view your images and professionally design a stunning wall display for your home or office. Gift prints are also available to order online for friends and family.

Delivering the prints!

We package and meet to deliver your heirloom prints in person to make sure the color and product is perfect. Many of our wall displays come with a hang guide making hanging your portraits a simple task. After your images are hung, we love seeing them in your homes and hope that they make you smile daily as you reflect on that special era.

nice to meet you

I’m Kim and I love snuggling up with my kids and a good book, drinking tea (by the gallon), and exercising. I strive to learn new things daily about photography and video because I sincerely love what I do for a living. I hope we can chat soon!
