Kim Bogardus' personality and life are inseparable from her photography. 

Having lived and traveled broadly she understands the importance of capturing people's stories and celebrations in a way that is faithful and authentic. Unpretentious and generous, she is equally comfortable photographing a bride in her dress, orphans in Russia, wrestlers in Mongolia, a film director in a studio, or a family in their city.

Kim's film background and photojournalistic style transfers into her digital photography as she limits her use of filters or post-production in order to remain as faithful to her subject's stories as possible. 

A native of Texas, she lives in Orange County with her husband and three children.
