Hi, I’m Kimber and I own Water Bear Photography! A bit about me: I’m originally from Ohio, completed my first degree in Texas (Gig’em Aggies!), and my second in Florida (Go Gators!). While in Texas, I met my husband, Will. We adore adventures and have been all over the world together! In fact, we moved to Florida because of our mutual love of cave diving. I’m a certified technical cave diver, master diver, and scientific diver. I feel that it’s come full circle now that our specialty is in underwater sessions at the springs we love so much!
I was working as a nurse when we got pregnant with our miracle baby. Due to debilitating postpartum anxiety and depression, I left my job as an RN and started my dream job as a mom. It’s on my heart to speak openly of my battles, in the hopes that I can encourage other struggling parents. While on the long road to healing, I fell in love with photography and used every spare second when our baby was napping to practice. Now, we operate a full-time studio in Jonesville, FL, where we create custom heirloom artwork for our clients. Our images have been awarded and published multiple times, but our favorite part of our job is getting to know our clients!
My husband, Will, is my second photographer and safety swimmer. You’ll often see him holding lights, tossing gowns, and just generally making each session a success! He’s a dive master and cave diver. This business never would have gotten off the ground without his unfailing love and support. Our son continues to be my muse and I run this business with both of my people in mind.
Here at Water Bear Photography, we believe in love. We hope that you love working with us as much as we do working with you!
