About me

Hello! I'm Kayla Saunders, a photographer, and a marketing and social strategist based in Southern California.

My photography journey started six years ago, inspired by documenting my travels. As an outdoors enthusiast, I find joy in capturing the beauty of my journey as I strive to visit all U.S. National Parks.

Through photography, I discovered my passion for marketing and social media work. Over the past three years, I've been dedicated to aiding businesses in crafting and maintaining a distinctive brand identity.

As a photographer and marketing strategist, my objective is to curate content that narrates genuine moments and conveys the authenticity through my lens.
