Today we’d like to introduce you to Kimberly Fain.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Kimberly. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I bought my first “really nice camera” back in 2012 with no intentions of doing anything with it. I wanted to take all the pictures I could of my sweet grandkids. I had a Regional Sales position for a company out of Houston calling on doctors, and then on the weekends, I you-tubed videos trying to figure out this camera thing!! At the end of 2013, I took my first newborn workshop thinking that maybe I’d give this a whirl!! In 2015 and four workshops later, I opened a beautiful studio in downtown Burleson with a friend and that’s when the party started!! I quit my 20 year long career and became a newborn photographer full time. I have put my whole heart and soul into this adventure and I love what I do. I pride myself on happy mommies and great customer service. I truly have the best job on earth. It doesn’t get any better than cuddling brand new babies every week.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
It has definitely not been a smooth road!! This is the hardest thing I’ve ever done. I’ve never worked this hard EVER. LOL!! Although we make it look easy and fun, it’s kinda rough at times. We are sitting in a very hot room trying to keep that baby comfy. Then everything we have gets peed and pooped on. Including the photographer!! And babies run the show!! You never know what you’re going to get!! Not to mention, we spend so much money on workshops, safety courses, props, props, and more props!! It’s hard to make a living sometimes because there is so many amazing newborn vendors with beautiful little outfits, buckets, bows, bonnets and backdrops. But then it’s so rewarding when you see mommy cry while watching that amazing video of her brand new baby’s first photo session. That makes it all worth it 🙂
So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Simply Baby by Kimberly Fain story. Tell us more about the business.

Has luck played a meaningful role in your life and business?
The only way to answer this question is that I’m the luckiest photographer in the world because I have the most amazing clients. I have made lifelong friends doing this 🙂
