The Portrait Experience

I specialize in seniors, weddings and portraits. I’m so passionate about getting to know my clients, and my favorites are those that I build a connection with, which is where so much of the magic comes from.

As a people-centered photographer, I’m intentionally passionate about giving all of my clients the very best experience possible and capturing tangible memories for every season of their lives. 

Where love lasts in memories

In the beautiful state of Idaho

After professionally shooting weddings for 5+ years, the love of my life and I tied the knot in an intimate mountaintop ceremony (of our DREAMS), before planning our big day with our closest friends and family. From the start, we wanted this celebration to be about our love and it's given me a new perspective of what marriage looks like. And even more, what a wedding day should feel like. 

I'm here to make your day, your's.

Within 3 weeks following your session, you will receive an email with your beautifully curated online gallery with all of the images that turn out from your session. This gallery allows you to view, share and download your high resolution images easily, and you can purchase a variety of prints and products directly within the site, if you so choose. This makes sharing with friends and family very easy!

After your session, I will carefully work through your images to individually adjust the lighting to reflect my joyful, timeless style. I lightly retouch blemishes that are temporary, as my motto is anything that won't be there in a week, will not be there in your photos.

Sessions with my typically take place within a couple hours of sunset, to capture the dreamy, golden light. This time will be filled with laughter and fun, and be a space where you can be your natural self.

Kali has a gift: she is an artist and a magician in one body. She has the ability to make anyone feel like a superstar, providing just the right amount of hype and a few squeals when looking through her camera to give you that little boost of confidence and empowerment. Ou daughter's senior experience was so much fun - from hair and makeup, to outfit changes, and catching the incredible light of  golden hour to capture the images that were on our girl's wish list. Everything was perfect. And then we received our gallery of our glowing girl, each photo better than the last. I'll be forever grateful to have these photos. Thank you, Kali!

Kali was an amazing asset to our wedding day. She was constantly checking in to make sure everyone was feeling good and having a good time! Our day ran incredibly smooth and I never felt as though our time for pictures was rushed through and she was also double checking to make sure we had all the shots we wanted! I couldn't reccommend her enough and I can't wait to continue to use Kali for all my photography needs forever!

I recently had the pleasure of working with Kali Photography and I cannot recommend her enough. From start to finish, she made me feel beautiful and comfortable, which really helped me relax and enjoy the experience. She took the time to understand exactly what I wanted from the shoot. The photos were absolutely stunning, and really captured my personality and style. I was so impressed with the quality of the images and the attention to detail that went into every shot. Overall, I would highly recommend Kali as a professional, friendly photographer.

$599

Every image you receive is individually edited for color, contrast, exposure and style. Each image is representative of the style that you will find on this site - joyful, bright and timeless. 
Some images occasionally require a little more finessing for temporary things like blemishes, acne and bruises, but things like heavy facial retouching, wrinkle removal or body reshaping are not included with any of my packages and are available for an additional fee.

just as you see here

Within 3 weeks of your session date, you will receive an email with a beautifully edited online gallery, using site software to deliver your high resolution digital images. This gallery beautifully sorts, displays and shares your images, with the option of purchasing products directly from the site for an affordable price. It’s a one stop shop!
I have spent years perfecting a shooting style that allows me to seamlessly and beautifully alter your images to reflect my popular bright and bold style. I love it and I hope you do too! I do not deliver RAW files from any session, main reasons being that it would not be a good representation of my work and it would require a full copyright release.

a beautiful gallery

As a natural light photographer, I rely heavily on sun placement and lighting to give me these bright, glowy images that I’m well known for. For this reason, I shoot a majority of my work during the time of day referred to as “golden hour”, which starts around 2 hours before sunset. If your session is a studio shoot, it will likely take place mid day!

most likely, golden hour

Rain and inclement weather are part of the photography game, unfortunately. The phrase “no rain, no flowers” is very true, so we do need some rain days in the mix. For this reason, I schedule in rain days into my schedule, in case it does rain and I need to move your session. My goal is always to keep the session planned until right up until a couple hours before, in case the weather decides to turn out in our favor. I only want the best for my clients, so trust me that I will do what it takes to get the perfect session day for you!

we may reschedule
