Authenticity at the core

Find the Candid in You!

Many people are camera shy, or describe themselves as being the opposite of photogenic. I started Candid by Kiana to show people the beauty in their authentic selves. You don’t have to be posed for a great photo, you just have to be yourself and have fun!

Denali Mountain Range: It was during this trip back in 2021 that my love for photography and capturing the natural state of my subjects grew even deeper. The atmosphere forever changed my perspective of how I viewed things through the lens of a camera.

"I need to see my own beauty and to continue to be reminded that I AM ENOUGH, that I am worthy of love without effort, that I am beautiful, that the texture of my hair and that the shape of my curves, the size of my lips, the color of my skin, and the feelings that I have are all worthy and okay."

behind the camera lens

Hi, My name is Kiana

From a young age, I always had a fascination with photos because I believed they captured the true essence of a person. It wasn’t until I picked up a camera for the first time during my senior semester of undergrad that I knew that I wanted to continue to capture moments, essentially freezing them forever in time.
Every time I am behind the camera, I intend on taking a natural, calm, and fun approach to each moment that I capture.
