Welcome to my website and photographic gallery. My name is Hattie Barham and I am a freelance photographer based in the Texas Hill Country. I am one of the fortunate people who have spent my life doing a job that I love. There have been many days in my career that I have said "I am getting paid to do this". After fifteen years of working for newspapers in the Kansas City area, including serving as Photo Editor at The Kansas City Star and Chief Photographer at The Johnson County Sun, my husband and I decided it was time to move back home to Texas. We landed in the small town of Utopia, Texas with the idea of "doing my own thing" photographically. As I met members of the community and made friends I was asked to photograph everything from weddings to little league. I guess my photo career has evolved from covering the news to capturing memories for our community.
Now I find my days recording special moments in the lives of both friends and clients visiting our area. From portraits, weddings, school and sports events I find the variety and new technology keeps my life full in this small little town of about 365 residents.
I hope you enjoy visiting my site and feel free to contact me if you have any questions regarding my images, requesting sessions, or estimates on photo work.
