About Us

Who We Are

Kim and Cara are long-time friends, both born and raised in the mid-west. Often mistaken for sisters, they will reply, "Soul sisters!" Both "sisters" possess a keen sense of creativity, appreciating the beauty that vintage and rustic decor adds to any space. Kim, a portrait photographer, and owner of Kim Kirker Photography , with a collection of antique props, and Cara, owner of Cara's Color Me Vintage, skilled in refinishing and re-purposing tired furniture, decided to merge their talents, passions, and love of all things rusted & chippy.  Naturally, Studio Vintage was born!!
