Hey, Kamelia here!
When I was growing up in the small town of Orange, TX, I never in a million years thought I would end up traveling the world capturing memories on my camera as a career. I didn't even board my first flight until I was 18 years old! You could definitely say that I've made up for the lost time. ;)
I'm huge on personal growth and traveling has been such a gift in that department, giving me so many diverse experiences. Sometimes both good and bad, but it's all about the journey, right? I wouldn't change a thing.
So far I have visited 33 countries and counting with no plans to slow down. There's so much of this beautiful world to explore and each new country is a delight to discover. I love sharing what I find with you and now I'm sharing my super fast editing hacks too!
When I'm not out traveling, I live in sunny San Diego with my fiance Jacob, his 2 kids, and the best dog ever, my little Rascal. :)
In 2006, I discovered my passion for travel on my first ever European trip. After exploring with friends for 2 weeks abroad, I knew I was hooked! I started researching everything I could on how to find creative ways to travel more on a budget that I could afford. That's when I learned about travel hacking and I got really good at it really quickly.
After this epiphany of racking up points, miles and also discovering error fares, it all became a game to me. I loved seeing how far I could go on the very least resources that I could muster up. I took every chance I had to travel all over the world and developed an entire system for finding these amazing deals. People started noticing and asking me how I did it.
In 2016, my blog was created to help others with all the tricks I had picked up over the years. I built a course on how to find these discount airfares online and I shared my photos from my travels on my Instagram feed.
Through years of editing in Lightroom, I created presets to make my editing process go much faster. Each place that I travel to is a bit different in color. So I created different preset packs for each destination, and now I'm sharing them with you! It took me a very long time to get them just right and I hope you love them as much as I do! :)
I also hope to motivate and inspire you to go out and capture life's best adventures. Photos are our memories that live on for a lifetime and beyond!
Live your favorite adventure!
