A couple of years ago I got the craziest email from a girl named Kimberly Bee. She told me that she loved my work and wanted to 2nd shoot for me. Some of you might ask why this is a strange thing? Well, it’s because when I went to her website and looked at her work she wasn’t the normal person who emails me to 2nd shoot. She was really good. I emailed her confused and asked her why she wanted to 2nd shoot with me. I’m not sure what she said, but it convinced me to have her come out and shoot and thus began an amazing friendship. We hit it off! I asked her to shoot a few more and then an amazing thing happened… she came on as a permanent 2nd shooter for me. Every wedding it was a duo Kim team. I liked it. It was fun and great having a dedicated team to shoot with.
About a year ago Kim started asking me if I would ever be interested in having an associate photographer. The thought of an associate photographer actually scared me, but it was something i had been thinking about so I told her I would get back to her. After a few months she asked again and again and again. I LOVE persistence!! I finally said yes… let’s do this thing. Let’s figure out how to make it work and have you come on board.
Some of you might want to know why Kim would leave her successful business and come work for me. Well it actually makes perfect sense when you talk to her. She is a PHOTOGRAPHER and not a business person. She is a mom and just couldn’t keep up with the work that having your own business brought on. I am pretty good at business and already have everything put into place, so it only made sense that she would come work under us as a photographer and not really have to deal with the business side. I give her huge props on her decision.
It’s been crazy trying to figure out how to make this work because Kim, like I said before, is an amazing photographer and has a following of fans a mile long. It’s been hard figuring out how to make the transition of the Kimberly Bee brand to the Kimberly Jarman brand, but I think we have it!!
I am so excited to announce that it is officially here. Kimberly Bee is officially an associate photographer for Kimberly Jarman Photography. You will be seeing a lot of her around this place because she will be joining us as a guest blogger as well as showing us her gorgeous images.
As an associate photographer, she will be shooting her normal amazing portraits, families, kids, babies, maternity. And she will also be shooting weddings for us! Her prices for weddings are discounted from mine, so it is a great opportunity for those on a budget to get the Kimberly Jarman experience with a great photographer.
We are really excited to have Kimberly Bee join us.
On a side note, to help with the confusion of having 2 Kimberly’s we have decided that Kimberly Bee will now be referred to as K.Bee
