Kimberly is a small town girl from Booneville in western Arkansas. She earned a bachelor of arts degree in journalism with emphasis in advertising and public relations from the University of Arkansas. She’s not giving away her age, but she’s old enough to remember actually making advertisements  for print by hand (that means no computer in sight!) at the Arkansas Traveler, the University of Arkansas student newspaper.  After a few years of working in public relations, a stint as a technical writer and serving as executive director of Western Arkansas Ballet, Kimberly moved to Searcy in 1996 with her family and enjoyed being a full time mom.

She began to enjoy photography as a creative outlet and in 2003 opened Kimberly Brackins Creative Portraiture. Since then, Kimberly has been blessed to photograph hundreds of babies, brides, seniors, children and families. She has literally documented the lives of some children from the  newborn stage to middle school. Through her lens she has watched beautiful young women blossom from high school seniors–to brides–to mothers.

 Now that her children are grown, Kimberly still believes her most important job is wife and mom, but realizes more than ever the importance of cherishing those wonderful moments in the life of a family. Kimberly takes this role very seriously and works carefully to provide you with portraits of your family that you will cherish for generations. She would be honored to have the opportunity to work with you to create your vision for your family.
