Instead of using this post to tout how amazing my photography is, I thought I would share a few things about me that you might not know. Besides, you probably already knew how renowned, mysterious and downright good-lookin’ I am.
~ I love to hack Kim’s Facebook status.
~ I have a Business and Communications degree from Carsen Newman.
~ If I could hike every day, I would.
~ I specialize in landscape & commercial photography and sell my work at The Chattanooga Market.
~ I hope to become a grumpy old man.
~ Not interested in being a superhero, but I bet Kim would make a smoking hot wonder woman.
~ I have pyromaniac tendencies and love to have our backyard fireplace burning every season of the year.
~ To sell Kim on my interest in starting photography I used an Excel spreadsheet itemizing expenses related to photography equipment vs. taking up golf again.
~ I enjoy anything outdoors and am happiest on the trail with my camera, trophy wife and kiddos.
~ I often accompany Kim for weddings, events and portrait sessions and/or whenever a second photographer is needed. She enjoys bossing me around.
My name is Kim Livingood!
I could tell you how much I love photography, but you have already figured that out. So here are a few random facts about me and my life.
~ We have two boys. My oldest is a clone of his dad. My youngest is a clone of me.
~ Kevin is 5 years younger than me, so I guess that makes me a cougar.
~ Willy Nelson once bent down from the stage and kissed me on the cheek. I felt like a giddy teenager!
~ I have a B.S. in Environmental Biology from U.T.C. During college, instead of rockin’ it out to 90’s music, I had a cassette tape of, “Vocalization of Southeast TN Frogs and Toads,” playing in my car.
~ I broke my neck, the transverse process, on a giant water slide that required a spinal fusion. I feel blessed that I survived!
~ I can’t watch scary movies anymore…freaks me out.
~ I have a 6 pound Shihpoo which is a mix of a Shitzu & a Poodle. He follows me everywhere.
~ Kevin & I are both bird nerds and get text messages form eBird when a rare bird is in the area. I spotted an Ash Throated Flycatcher in Chattanooga…3,000 miles from its habitat!
~ I completed 30 days of yoga in two months, just to win a t-shirt!
~ I love the look of pride in my kids faces when I jump off the diving board at the pool. They are still young enough to think that is awesome instead of being embarrassed.
~We have a strong connection and appreciation for The Tennessee River Gorge Trust. Kim was selected to do her internship for TRGT in college.
~We donate our time & Kevin’s landscape photography to the TRGT to be used for publication and marketing purposes.
~Visit our Tennessee River Gorge gallery and you’ll understand why it’s referred to as “The Grand Canyon of Tennessee.”
Example of the shenanigans that take place in our work environment…sigh. ; )
