About Me

There is one thing a photograph must contain:
the humanity of the moment.

Kathy J. Shepperson

Born in North Carolina, raised in Southern California and current resident of the Northern Neck, Virginia - to say I've lived in many lives would be an accurate statement.

Throughout my travels and many homes, photography has always been a source of expression and appreciation for me. I am drawn to bold colors and it is my belief that nature provides us with the most beautiful palatte. My focus on flowers stems from my love of gardening and watching things change with the seasons. When I'm not capturing sunsets or new flowers in the spring, I work as a Sonographer and have worked in healthcare for over 35 years.

I currently live in Kilmarnock, VA with my husband and dog, Layla. Much of my work is inspired by the beautiful sunsets we get to enjoy on the water fishing the Rappahannock River and hiking the wooded trails near our home. We love to travel and outside of visiting our daughter in Colorado, enjoy adventuring to any place we can find outside. Some of my personal favorites have included our trips to Maine, Hawaii, California, Arizona and through the Midwest.

First Shots

From an early age in California, I loved learning the ins and outs of photography and occassionally having my picture taken as well.

Travel Photo

Our travels allow me to explore new landscapes, textures and colors with film. While visitng Hawaii, I loved capturing the green mountains with the brilliant blues of the water.

Sunset Lover

At the end of the day, my favorite moments to capture are sunsets. This one is a self portratit taken in California in 1979.


I hope you enjoy my work and please contact me for any questions or requests.
