Dallas Texas Personalized Portrait Photographer
I'm Kori Renee Davis- a full-time professional photographer and lifestyle blogger living in Dallas, TX. I specialize primarily in personalized portrait work. I get wild eyes for documenting other’s biggest moments in this life. I’m a learner, a lover, a story teller, a fighter, and a friend. My true joy has and always will come from serving others using my gifts.
The Basics (FAQ's)
"Where are you from?"
I was born and raised in good ole' Abilene, Texas. I graduated from Cooper High School in 2012 at just 16 years old. I still visit Abilene often actually! In my opinion, what Abilene lacks in "what to do for fun, it makes up for in the quality of the people. I love being a freelance photographer in the big city of Dallas, but I will always feel loyal to Abilene for challenging my creativity and giving me such an incredible baseline to begin my journey.
"When did you start photography?"
I started photography at age 14 purely out of a passion for creativity and self expression. Around a year into it I found myself doing senior portraits almost every other day. I still remember doing my first wedding at 15. (Yep yall, my mother had to drop me off lol)
"What was your major in college?"
I graduated from Colorado Mesa University with my Bachelor's in Nursing (BSN) back in 2016. I absolutely loved living in Grand Junction, Colorado! I continued to pursue photography in college and often traveled for weddings all over the country. One of the best days of my life was when I received the phonecall that I had been selected to be a Colorado Mesa University Ambassador. To this day I am still so passionate about Colorado Mesa University. I couldn't have asked for a better experience!
"So, wait, are you still working as a nurse?"
Yep, plain and simple I can multitask with the best of them! I am currently working as a Neonatal Intensive Care Nurse (NICU) nurse in South Dallas. I love serving others not only through photography, but also in a health care setting. My career in nursing has been such a gift, and it continues to bring so much joy into my life! Sometimes I even get to use my photography here as a newborn photographer! (Crazy huh?) Okay and lastly, let's all be honest, I work with the cutest patients in the hospital. No competition there folks.
Okay but honestly...
1. I have never met a stranger.
