This Michigan beauty is not only a paternal twin, she's a married mother of five gorgeous children with a tenacious creative personality that lead her to pick up a camera seven years ago and she hasn't stopped since. Capturing those fleeting moments of her kiddos through photography, Kai Davis is able to put all of her artistic talents to use. I first meet Kai through church camp back in the 90's. She is still as humble, pretty and outgoing as I remember and I was able to reconnect with her via Facebook. However, I had no idea the magical yet tangible moments I saw appearing on my feed were hers. Don't judge me okay - had a slow moment/moments when I saw Kai Davis Photography. I thought the pictures were ads from editorial or lifestyle magazines and sites. Photography has been a passion of mine since grade school and I love seeing women doing their thang in this industry but most of all going after their passions. Kai has cultivated a style with her photos that's for sure. It's reflective of her own beauty and magic which she exudes naturally.
"The ability to connect and keep your child's attention is essential in capturing that precious moment of beauty. I like to tell a story through my images - creating beautiful images that willl tell the story of your family forever ."
I couldn't end this year without having Kai as one of my featured "Goddesses". Checkout our Q&A below
