I’m so excited to share my life and photography with you through a blog. Over the past five years I’ve started several other blogs (no I won’t link to them because umm that’s embarrassing), but I’ve never managed to stick with them. I think centering my blog around photography, with a little life added in here and there, will keep me active and give you a chance to see what I’m working on. Plus I love showing off my clients!
Just a quick background about my photography…
I started shooting in high school as part of the yearbook staff (s/o to The Roughneck staff of 2006!). I developed a love for photojournalism and sports photography and was always the designated photographer anytime friends wanted to take jumping pictures. After grad school I picked the hobby back up along with my sisters in law, Jessi and Abby. Together, the three of us formed Harris Photography where we got the chance to capture so many beautiful families, seniors, couples and babies for three years.
Jessi got married in December of 2014 and moved to Nashville with her new husband, Micah.
Abby started a Pilates certification program through the Pilates Center soon after that plus started investing her talents in videography too (I did not take the picture below).
In January of 2016, Ben and I moved to Paducah, Kentucky to help launch The Crossing in Paducah.
With all the changes and all three of us in different states I decided to take a small break from photography to really figure out where I wanted my photography to take me. After a few months off, many conversations with Ben, and evaluating what my goals were I decided to break off from Harris Photography and start my own photography business – Kim Harris Photography.
I already miss working alongside my family (and two great friends!), but I’m excited about the challenge of striking out on my own, delving further into my style of photography and I hope you’ll join me along the way!
