In Memory of Katie Jiminez

Tragically, PPA member Katie Jiminez, M.Photog.Cr., passed away last week, just days after receiving her Master of Photography degree at Imaging USA in Nashville. Katie was a beloved friend and mentor and a beautiful soul who will be greatly missed. PPA extends our condolences to her friends and family in Georgia and everywhere her light touched.
