Hi, I am Kimberly.

...and that cutie behind me in the photo above is the air in my lungs...literally. You might find him tagging along to hold the light or carry my equipment on our shoot together. My husband of 25 years is the reason I have been able to do what I love!

I am a passionate lover of Travel. In order to really appreciate everything this world has to offer, you have to be willing to bundle up and change your latitude every once in a while. Infact, this is us during a once in a lifetime trip to Scotland -2017.

While Florida is my home, I was born and raised in Eastern Oregon. My High School ambition of living in Florida became reality when the universe literally showed me the door to opportunity in 2006 so my husband and I picked up our kids and walked right through it. We have lived in the Pensacola area ever since.

3 short years later...

my childhood dream became a reality and Kimberly Petty Photography was established. Yes, My childhood Dream.

The photo to the right was taken in 1989, by a 10 year old at her aunt's Wedding... with a 110...Who then decided after seeing the developed pictures from the local Bi-Mart that Gee... I think I want to be Photographer.

So to sum it up.... h/s ambition of Living in Florida...Manifested!

Childhood Dream of becoming a photographer.... Manifested!

The Universe will bring you the opportunity for everything you desire. You just have to be able to recognize it and believe that it is yours for the taking. That is the Secret.


“"Kimberly was very professional but at the same time personal. This is her business but she also knew it was my wedding day and while doing her job, also made me feel special and beautiful. Our photos turned out beautiful! She was a pleasure to work with and we will use her for all photos in the future.”

“"Kimberly was wonderful not only is she a talented professional, but she is so warm she felt like an old family friend! I loved her work, my DVD video brought me to tears! I would definitely recommend her as a photographer for any event.”

“"Kimberly Petty, is a wonderful photographer! She really does care about her clients and listens to what the clients want. Also, she offers packages that could fit any brides budget. I plan on continuing to use her in the future! She is AMAZING!!! :)”

“I've been working with Kimberly for 10yrs for modeling and family photos. So of course when I got engaged I knew she was the one I wanted there to capture all our special moments. From 2 engagement sessions, to pre wedding events, and the wedding itself, the photos were just as beautiful as I imagined they'd be!
Kimberly's photography skills are amazing but she's also THE BEST to work with (including boudoir sessions💋).”

“Kimberly Petty was so helpful in my process of finding a photographer, especially since I was in Texas and she was in Florida. Though the distance she was able to help me with everything I needed to know about her services. After booking with her she was very helpful in setting up phone appointments and making wedding day timelines in order to do her best photographing my event. After the wedding I received my pictures about 5 weeks later and I absolutely loved how everything turned out.”

“We have used Kimberly Petty Photography for two years now to do family pictures in Carillon Beach, Florida. She is always goes above and beyond and we have been beyond thrilled with the outcome. We intend to use her for our family portraits again in the future! We highly recommend her for your picture needs! Thank you Kimberly!”

“We had our family beach photo session back in May 2012. The session was so great! We really enjoyed ourselves and loved working with you to make our first family photos a huge success. I finally made my decision on which of the fabulous pictures I wanted to use as our main portrait to hang in our family room and My order arrived in pristine condition Just 3 days later! Wow!
I was very impressed!”
