Captured Moments Photography has played an immeasurable role in many families’s lives in the Owensboro community for nearly 2 decades. Owners Jason and Kate Higdon said their business model is now evolving, as they have decided to close their studio at 801 Old Hartford Road and instead conduct sessions on location. 

The last studio session will be on December 20, and it will close completely on December 31. Kate Higdon encouraged clients to call 270-685-5164 or email [email protected] to book a studio session as soon as possible. 

The company will continue photographing on location for sports, dance, and cheer teams as well as offering family, senior, professional, and branding sessions. 

“We are so excited for this new pivot in our business,” Higdon said. “We are making this move to allow more freedom to our life as new empty nesters ready to travel and explore other opportunities in addition to our photography business.”

The Higdons initially launched the studio as a way to enjoy more of the children’s lives, often bringing the youngsters to work with them. Higdon said closing the location is certainly bittersweet because it’s where their children grew up, and they’ve formed many memories there. 

With the closure, the Higdons are selling most of their studio contents — including furniture, frames, backgrounds, props, and more. They will keep their camera equipment, lighting, and some “signature” Captured Moments props and sets.

“We have a passion for photography that will never disappear, and we love our little Kentucky home,” Higdon said. “We’ve been so blessed and immensely grateful to a community who chose us to capture such special times in their lives.”

In 13 years at the location, Captured Moments has conducted more than 7,000 sessions in the studio. That doesn’t consider the several hundred more they’ve done on location at various businesses, balls, and nonprofits. 

Higdon said she and her husband are excited about the next chapter in their lives. She added they’re incredibly grateful to their many clients, which they hope to continue serving in the future. 

“We aren’t leaving – we are just cutting back to enjoy some life freedom and have the time to pursue our other passions,” she said. “Our clients have been the greatest gifts to us, and we have enjoyed every minute with you and look forward to more in the future.”
