Her grandfather was a world war 2 photographer, and her father and grandmother were photographers as well. Even Knopf’s husband, Mark Stetler was going to school to study photography. According to Knopf, it seemed like a no-brainer for her to start photographing and she eventually became a celebrated figure in fashion photography.
