San Diego Photographer | About
Thank you for visiting my website! My name is Kinda (pronounced like Linda). I am a photographer, a food blogger @falafeldiva and a mom to two beautiful kids. After 16 years of living in San Diego, we relocated to the Chicago area in Dec 2020. I have a bachelor's degree in Chemistry and Computer Science, and over 7 years experience working in IT Consulting, Project Management, Programming, Graphics and Web-Design. When I'm not behind the camera, I am in the kitchen cooking, getting crafty, traveling, spending time with my family & friends, and volunteering with local non-profit groups. Oh, and did I mention I am obsessed with Game of Thrones?
Photography has been a hobby of mine since I was a young girl. It's rare you'll find me without a camera in hand. Several years ago, as a stay-at-home mom, I began taking pictures of my 2 kids. I wanted to document their lives by capturing every moment, milestone and special occasion. Taking it to the next level, I set forth on a journey to formally study the art of photography and utilize the full potential and functionality of my camera -- Countless books, classes, workshops and practice made this possible. After much encouragement and praise for my work along with a substantial investment in professional grade equipment, my passion and obsession would become my livelihood.
The day I decided to pursue my passion feels like many moons ago. I was involved in endless photo sessions but I now specialize in maternity, newborn, and baby's first year. Over the last 11 years of my professional career, my work has been published nationally in People & Us Weekly magazines, and my pictures have been featured on popular sites such as E! news, Perez Hilton, Wall street Journal, Celebrity Insider and more. My client list includes some of Hollywood's most admired celebrities, reality TV stars, public figures, news anchors and professional athletes.
I look forward to working with you!
