My name is Phoenix and I giggle every time I tell new people. I often get called Kim because my business name. What does KM Ivelisse stand for? My two girls. Kailani is my oldest daughter and Moana’leia is my youngest. Both of their middle names as well as my mother’s is Ivelisse. I wanted to keep this business as close to my heart as possible and what better way than dedicating it to the three women (and girls) in my heart.
I have been a hobbyist since 2007 and began my business in 2018. I was super lucky to start on beautiful Hawai’i! So beach portraits are sort of my specialty. Here I am now in the equally as beautiful Orange County, California.
I am a fur momma to my Golden Retriever, Snitch. I am also a huge Harry Potter fan, ie my dogs name “The Golden Snitch”. If you don’t get the reference, that’s cool. I’ll talk your ear off about it if you ask. You have been warned!
