Gari-Ann Kia

Gari-Ann Kia Photography is a full-service photography studio that specializes in Portraiture, Lifestyle, and Wedding Photography. I love getting everyone in close and capturing the joyous moments of your life. I am there every step of the way from planning the details, serving you and your family at your session, through making sure you have memories and fine art products in your home for years to come.


I’m a wife, mom, teacher, and photographer. My favorite activity is a lunch date, favorite food are gummy bears, and during quiet moments I like to paint my nails.  A few years ago I turned in my classroom keys and picked up a camera.  Today, I have the best job in the whole world…photographing love, milestones, and successes. As a military spouse I’ve been fortunate enough to live and travel to many beautiful places in my life–Hawaii, Colorado, Germany, Italy, France–which has deeply influenced my love for creating images that are beautiful, clean, and true.


Most days you’ll find me trying to balance being a Mom to two of the cutest kids around (I’m totally biased) and running this amazing business. We adore being in Huntsville, but love to take our family out on as many adventures as possible! Follow us on our family adventures on our own blog, The Chicken Nugget Theory.

There are a few organizations that are close to my heart. I love giving back to my community and the families I serve through Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep and the Tiny Footprints Project. Please support and spread the word about these amazing organizations.
