Kimberly Brown was born and raised in Shirleysburg and graduated from Mt. Union Area High School in 1982. After graduation, moved to State College and attended Centre Business School enrolled in the Business Administration with Accounting Program.
I have always enjoyed taking pictures and was always the one with camera in hand at our family get –togethers. After being asked by family members and friends to do senior pictures and college graduation pictures, I decided to get a little more serious about learning photography and in December 2009, I bought my first digital DSLR camera. In 2010 I took digital photography classes at Ritz Camera in Altoona and after taking those classes I was still eager to learn more and in 2011 took a five week class in digital photography at HCCTC. There I met my business partner, Kevin Mills, the instructor. After taking the class I had a whole new perspective on photography and found myself taking photographs of scenes and objects I would have never thought about prior to the class. The more I learned and the better my pictures looked, the more motivated I became to being a better photographer.
While I enjoy all aspects of photography and it is a lot of fun, what I enjoy the most is photographing the energy and innocence of children. I would like to thank my family and friends for agreeing to be models and helping me get to where I am today, doing something I love… photography.
