I want to help you freeze time. Time goes by so quickly, I want to take this moment to pause, and capture this exact moment, just the way it is today. Life gets away from us with the hectic schedule in raising our children, let’s just take a moment to soak in this moment and enjoy what you have created. This is a time to embrace, snuggle, listen, laugh, and hold those who are dear to you. Every time you look back at your session, I want to evoke those feelings over and over again. When they are hung up on your walls, you can’t help but stare at the moments.

This life is so short, and our littles are only little for a short period of time. Let’s document those little quarks that fill your heart with so much joy. 

Perfection is not the goal, evoking heartfelt feelings and tangible moments is. 

Capturing your family as they are. Lovingly documenting this life's journey and all it’s magic. Dancing under the golden hour sun in Northern California & creating those snuggly feels in The Studio

about me

I am so excited you are visiting my page!!!!!

Hey, I’m Kimberly (or you may call me Kim). The Sha from Kimberly Sha Photography is my middle name. I was named after my Nana’s childhood doll, and yes, the correct spelling is Shea. I’m a coffee lover, mother of 2 adorable little boys and a stepmom to 4 not so children-children, a wife to a pretty amazing man, and a photographer!

I love creative projects that involve photos, flowers, and making a big mess… which I hate to clean. I dabble in all types of photography, but my main love is newborns and maternity with skin.

I have been able to be a part of some life changing events, and just so thankful for photography to let me be a part of it… watching a best friend give birth, to setting up a proposal for my stepson and tricking my sister in law with my brother so he could propose over the Golden Gate Bridge to capturing their wedding day. Photography has allowed me to share some amazing memories.

My goal in capturing this amazing time is to capture you as you truly are. I want to capture the giggles, the kisses, the hugs, the tears, the smiles, and frowns. There are moments today that I never want you to forget, moments and things only family can share with each other. Let’s capture whatever melts your heart. Authentic, raw, and organic moments.  Let the littles be little, just sit back and adore them. 

If you call yourself a creative, proudly wear that title, be memorable, inspire others and always stay humble and kind!

With Love! Kimberly Sha

If I know what love is,
it is because of you.

“I was so happy to find Kimberly! I saw her work and instantly knew that I needed her to do my newborn photos. She was so wonderful to work with and was so patient with us, and the pictures are incredible! I will treasure theses photos forever.”

“Very grateful to have come across Kimberly! She had a great deal of patience dealing with my two tornadoes, and her studio is just too cute! I appreciate her taking her time making sure everything was perfect, she has such a creative mind. We can’t wait to shoot with her again once my other little comes.”
