Kimberly was born in the islands of the Azores, Portugal, to American parents, then later raised in Texas and Louisiana where her family was from. At the age of fifteen she picked up a camera and thus began her love of the medium that would become her livelihood. Her professional career began in 1989 in the film industry, where she enjoyed a successful stint of many years, doing publicity photography for films and actors. Her photographs have been published in countless magazines and publications worldwide including Vogue, Vanity Fair, Premiere, and Elle, to name a few. She eventually left Hollywood to focus on parenting, and has since maintained a list of private clientele around the world. Her photographs are held in many private collections. After years of living in various cities including Los Angeles, New York, and Berlin, Kimberly moved back home to Texas in 2009. She now lives in the beautiful Texas hill country in Dripping Springs, just outside of Austin, with her husband and teenage son.
