My name is Kat. And I am a creative. I express myself best through photography, but have been know to pick up a paintbrush or partake in a camp fire or bar sing along. When I was younger, I best expressed myself through dance. But puberty was cruel, and I realized that my passion for dance did not match my God given talent.
I was born and raised in Arkansas. My mother was single. And a fighter. When I was 6, she passed away. I became strong and a fighter like her. I spent most of my childhood trying to stay ahead of the game with a hope getting out of a bad situation fast. It worked. I attended college and went on to get my Masters.
By day I work in research. By night, I'm a creative. A photographer. With a mission....to capture the moments in between. It would seem my passion for photography does match my God given talent...and my good eye.
Recently I made the decision to actively pursue photography full time as an artist and as a business. It will take time to slowly pull away from my full time research position. Jasmine Star, a wonderful Wedding Photographer and Educator, has given me a great foundation. She recently teamed up with CreativeLive for the Complete Wedding Photographer Experience with Jasmine Star. I learned many things about myself as a person, photographer, artist and business-person. But more importantly, I learned I'm not alone. And that "figuring it out" is enough sometimes. And it's ok to ask questions. I have met some AMAZING and some BRILLIANT and just down right GOOD people through this journey. And it was wonderful that I did not have to do it alone.
So what next? I will share wonderful images of my amazing clients. I will take you along on not one but two editorial projects. More importantly I'll peel away layers and share parts of me that I have never shared before.
