Heirloom: Do you have any morning rituals or things you do to get ready for a long day of editing or shooting?

Kimberly: While I'm really not much of a morning person, I do enjoy caring for my succulents and herb garden daily. It's my latest hobby and it makes me so happy to see them grow!

Heirloom:  What intrigues you most about photography?

Kimberly: I am very attentive to detail, light, and color. I chose to pursue photography because it gave me a means of expression.
