"Images of captured beauty, light, and love create lasting memories."
- Kathy Barefield
With a lifelong love of nature and animals I have spent the last 27+ years as an environmental planner in San Diego County working for the protection of sensitive resources. This experience has given me a an even greater appreciation of the natural world.
I have spent most of my life in the company of animals and consider them kindred spirits. My husband and I currently share our home with a dog, a baby tortoise, and a parade of foster kittens from the local animal shelter.
Photography, which started as a hobby, has become a passion of mine. I was able to develop my skills while taking pictures of my three sons and the animals we've shared our lives with. It is my desire to share this passion with you by creating images of natural beauty. I find that being in nature brings me an inner sense of peace and calm. My hope is that the images I create can do the same for you.
I live in a beautiful place where you can visit the ocean, mountains, and desert all in the same day. I have also been fortunate enough to visit many other beautiful places. I’d like to share these places with you through my photographs.
I have recently been selected as a contributing artist for Murals Your Way which provides custom wall murals for homes, businesses, and interior designers. Check it out at http://www.muralsyourway.com/kathy-barefield-prints/.
I am often requested to take photographs of friends and family members. I would be happy to help you create lasting memories of a graduation, engagement, vacation, or other special moment in your life.
