Originally from Alabama, Kimberly Nesmith moved to New Orleans, Louisiana in late 2014 to pursue her passion of photography in her favorite Southern city.
With a background in English literature, Kimberly worked on her MA while reigniting her love of art and photography. She has always worked with eclectic mediums, from acrylic and ink to mixed/natural materials. However, her desire to focus on photography overpowered other artistic endeavors. With so many different interests, she has been able to combine photography, art, writing, and a love of social media & tech in order to provide a variety of services to clients.
In 2016, her @risingcrescent Instagram account was featured as one of NOLA.com's 9 Instagram Accounts That Capture the Essence of New Orleans.
Photography services include a specialization in real estate and architectural photography, but Kimberly also does lifestyle, commercial, creative, and nature photography in addition to portraiture (models, individual/family, engagement, pets). She has more recently started to do wedding photography, specializing in small and destination weddings. Prints are available for purchase, and she also does custom mixed media art incorporating her photography.
Other services include writing content for websites and blogs (articles, website content, blog posts, copy, captions) and social media management (creating and/or managing accounts such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc.).
When she isn't trying her best to showcase the magical beauty of New Orleans and the South, Kimberly lives with her canine son, Jude. She loves discovering new music, watching captivating documentaries, and looking forward to the next adventure.
