Having been in the photography business for a decade, Caldwell has built a strong reputation for being someone who can show beauty in all forms and use photography as a way to create art.

It’s a major accomplishment to be a female Black photographer in a male-dominated space and she has definitely cemented her place as one of the top photographers in the industry. Her photography has been featured in Philadelphia Wedding Magazine, Philadelphia Magazine, PLUS Model Magazine, Elle’ments Magazine, Fabuplus, Queen Size Magazine and POSE Magazine.

She also uses her platform to show her philanthropy side. Caldwell created “Kia Cares“, a organization that offers help to the homeless. From selling positive message tees with proceeds going towards donating survival packs to the homeless to fundraising efforts and servicing the less fortunate during the holiday season, Caldwell has definitely shown how you can use your career to assist others, while pushing for change in the world through the art of photography.
