I live in Charlotte, North Carolina with my husband of 26 years. Even though I went to school for child therapy, my passion has always been portrait photographer. After many years of capturing my family's special moments, I launched Kalina's Photography at the end of 2019. It started slowly and then we got hit with a worldwide pandemic. But here I am.
Why hire me...
I have a passion for capturing your life's milestones because of my mom. Let me explain. My mom always had a camera ready with plenty of film to take whatever was happening with my two sisters and I, needless to say we love all of the photos we have and we have A LOT. Because of her, I learned the importance of leaving a legacy to those coming after us, our children. One of the questions I get about maternity photography is, "why should I do maternity photos?" and I respond to that, those photos are not for you, they are for that baby you are carrying only once in your lifetime. Life comes at us and moves so fast, I believe in documenting as much of life as we have the opportunity! We will help you feel gorgeous and confidence in whatever stage of your life you are in!
My style is minimalist and I believe in keeping it simple. Simple doesn’t mean keeping it boring. In fact, a minimalist approach requires careful thought, observation, and the creativity of working within certain boundaries to make you the main focus of my photos.
How did Kalina's Photography studio started? In 2016 I started my product photography business but soon after I realized that I love taking portraits. I guess you could say I am totally a people person and telling a story through photos. I am a Jesus lover and I am the official photographer at my small church in Charlotte, NC.
My studio is in my home and it has several options for backdrops but the main theme is minimalist and white. Twice a year we do mini sessions at outdoor locations and desired parks so follow us on Instagram for the latest news @kalinasphotographync
I look forward to capturing your life's milestones so don't hesitate to click here to contact us.
Because of demand we offer our couples engagements and small weddings when my calendar permits and we have great packages for it. However, we concentrate in maternities and children portraits with their families and milestones.
