Knight Light Photography is Kimberly Knight… a professional photographer, coffee devotee, nap aficionado, kindness lover, introvert, and charming nerd.
Who's behind Knight Light Photography? The short, short version is simply Kimberly Knight. I am Central Illinois born and raised, went to college, got a computer programming degree, used it for a couple years in a job I didn't really dig, and then discovered my passion: photography.
The longer version is that I’ve been in business since 2006 doing what I love…loving my clients and freezing their memories. My pictures are vibrant with true to life colors. I try to avoid fads or things that would date the images. My goal is always to create timeless pictures of clients. Knight Light Photography has always just been dedicated to capturing the heart of the subject.
The challenge of working with the location, the natural light, and the elements are part of the allure of photography for me. Everything revolves around light. What's the best light for a particular subject? And I am all about finding your light. Sometimes finding your light means a little bit of creative lighting and sometimes it's unaltered, warm evening light. Your light is as unique as you, and I am dedicated to finding it for you. It's kind of the unofficial mantra of Knight Light Photography.
“Finding your light” is more than just a mantra, though. It's a philosophy of life. It's not just how I shoot, but how I live. I strive every day to find the good in others and to show kindness to everyone I meet. Spreading light and love along the way as I stroll through life.
Speaking of light and love, my light are my sons Jasper and Linus, and my love is my husband Josh. They support me and both always are cheering for me to go towards my dreams. They make me laugh every day but also make me feel beautiful. I strive to send that energy back to my clients every time I’m shooting. I’m an optimistic person who will always try to look for the good in anyone (sometimes to a fault). I love a good nap. If you bring me coffee, I’ll be your best friend. I would bake every day except I hate the cleanup. I greatly dislike squirrels. I love stationery and snail mail and have quite a few pen pals. And for personality test nerds, I am an ISFJ.
I once read a saying that said “I am a flame to light other flames”. It has stuck with me and I think about it daily. Am I doing something to spark other people? How can I make someone else’s day awesome? I’m so lucky to be doing something I love but also to provide joy to my clients. My goal each day is to be a flame to light others.
I shoot primarily on location natural light sessions but also have a small studio in my home for newborns and children. I specialize in baby & child photography, high school senior portraits, and family photography, serving the central Illinois areas including: Bloomington-Normal, Pontiac, and surrounding communities.
So what’s next? Follow me on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. Or even better email me today and let’s schedule some pictures!
Knight Light Photography aims to provide high quality, affordable images. Everyone deserves good photography and to have updated portraits each year. All of my sessions include a disk with the fully edited digital images for printing. I also provide the opportunity to order professional lab quality prints which I encourage my clients to use for prints to hang in their home.
All sessions include a cd with an average of 20-25 photos and printing rights to these pictures. (Printing rights includes personal use and printing only. Images may not be edited in anyway or sold to a third party for any use.) An online gallery is available after the session is complete that allows the client to purchase professional lab quality prints.

Kimberly has been capturing special moments for our family since 2008. She is a true professional! From our wedding, to group family photos, and baby to toddler pictures we have never been disappointed with our experience in the studio or outside. Kimberly loves what she does, and it shows through her work!
I absolutely love Kimberly's work! She is an amazing artist! I'm always afraid that our photo sessions are going to be chaotic and Kimberly is always so relaxed and our photos turn out beautifully! More importantly, my kiddos love her. I discovered Kimberly about a year ago and I will always have my photos taken by her from now on! We have done a newborn shoot, a one year shoot, family photos, and a friend shoot! There's nothing that she can't do!
Kimberly is creative, caring and talented!! We hired her to do our sons newborn photos and continued to have her photograph him for each 3 month interval. She handles babies so well and truly loves what she does. We love her vision!
We absolutely love the photos that Kimberly took of our family! She immediately put everyone at ease, and got not only amazing candid shots of our two girls ( and truly captured their little personalities), the more posed photos look natural, happy, and relaxed. Not sure what kind of magic she uses, but we joked that she made us look better in the pics than in real life! I highly recommend Knight Light!
