The Hollywood dream moved her west from Minnesota but it was the heart of a horse that changed everything. Having worked on both sides of the camera Kimerlee has the natural ability of capturing emotion. Delivering imagery that is described as unique, dramatic and evocative. Emphasizing graceful lines, rich textures and a view of the horse not done before. Since 2004 she has been capturing an intimate connection with the wild, leaving the viewer imagining their very breath on their face.

Influenced by photographic genius such as Herb Ritts, Nick Brandt and Kurt Markus. Her style is her own in relation to the horse and has become increasingly recognizable. She has traveled the world, capturing the essence and spirit of stunning horses. Yet, its the allure of raw, wild, untouched beauty, the rugged terrain and harsh elements along with the challenges of finding wild horses and the patience for them to trust her, is the oxygen to her soul.
