i forgot to tell you…i’m on vacation this week in arizona. i’m visiting my friend monica…a dear, dear friend whom i have not seen for FOUR YEARS!
while i was out here, i got a chance to reconnect with some other people i have known for a million years…
one of them is kimberly jarman. she was a HUGE inspiration to me…and i might not be a wedding photographer today if she hadn’t started down this path several years before me. photography was not even on my radar, and i remember seeing the photos she took and thinking they were SO beautiful and romantic. so when i started getting into photography…i was attracted to the adventuresome and romantic images she created from the weddings she photographed.
in the early days of my business, her work was definitely the ruler by which i measured my own photos (yeah, mine ALWAYS fell short) and the first place i went looking for inspiration. i’ve since found my own voice and style and no longer compare myself, but i’m still inspired by the way she sees the world.
she recently had a little baby, kailee michelle, and also opened a studio in downtown mesa. sounds like everything’s going well in the jarman world!
