Hello, I’m Kalida, owner, and lead photographer + brand strategist of Kalida Williams Photography, LLC. I am excited that you've taken the time to visit my website and learn more about me and my business. I understand the stress and frustration that comes with entrepreneurship and the many hats you need to wear and I want to help you relieve that stress and frustration! Building a successful brand takes a lot of work and I know that creating meaningful images for your brand can be a daunting task, especially if you’re unsure about how to create them or even what to create.
After working more than 18 years in the corporate and non-profit sectors I was able to learn so much about marketing, business operations, branding, design and event planning. I’ve taken all of that knowledge and experience and combined it with my love, passion and skill in photography to bring a unique perspective to help support other entrepreneurs build their brands. I not only bring to the table great images, but I also help my clients begin to build a brand strategy to get them to the next level.
I would truly love the opportunity to work with you in building your brand.
Check out my full story below....
I have had a love of photography since I was in high school (more than 20 years ago) when I was given a camera by my grandfather who also loved to take pictures. I was always seen with a camera or in the darkroom developing pictures! ;) I took my love of photography with me on to college and was studying for my photography degree until all of my photography equipment was stolen out of my car during exams. That prompted me to move on to other interests. Over the years I learned many new and exciting skills in IT, accounting, design, marketing, event planning and operations management.
In 2014 my husband began to push me to go back to doing what I loved and bought me a camera. I let it sit for months and then finally took it out the box. Two years later I started professionally taking photos and haven't looked back since. I am now full-time in the business and looking for continuous ways to incorporate my other skills learned over the years in event planning, design and marketing.
