Meet Kim Nelmark, Owner & Photographer

I am a wife and mother whose passion has blossomed into a career. I first discovered my passion as an eight-year-old who stole her mom’s camera and captured a picture of our pickup’s rusty license plate. It wasn’t particularly well-composed or even completely in focus, but Mom’s camera vanished regularly from then on, and rolls of film mysteriously accumulated in our fridge. Much to my parent’s relief, I finally got my own camera, but I still have the picture that started it all and the spirit of the eight-year-old who fell in love with photography!

While my first love was photography, backpacking was my second. Many of my wildlife and landscape photos were taken while backpacking with my husband and son and have been featured in national publications such as Backpacker Magazine and The Seattle Met.
