Born and raised in South Carolina, Kaity developed a passion for cinematography and the craft of visual storytelling and moved with her sister to Los Angeles in 2014 to pursue filmmaking as a career. At the time, she noted that her competition was primarily working with HDSLR type cameras and she decided to take a major gamble and leap beyond her competition by investing in her career and purchasing an ARRI AMIRA camera. This decision allowed her to be taken more seriously more quickly than some of her contemporaries and since she has been continuously booked shooting documentaries, commercials, short films, features and music videos.
In the feature film world, Kaity photographed the multi-award-winning romantic drama Before the Dawn as well as additional photography on the Biblical epic The Penitent Thief. In documentaies, Kaity photographed the award-winning racing doc short Sonya Slidez and the custom super-car series with Nelson Racing Engines. Her doc/industrial work also includes shooting such artists as comedian/producer George Lopez, actor/host Mario Lopez, T.I., Meek Mill, horror-master John Carpenter and popular television host Tom Bergeron. Her prolific work in short films includes Alone Together, One More Step, Dissonance, and the upcoming Glaistig.
She is an active member of the American Society of Cinematographers Motion Imaging Technology Council Lens Committee and has been featured in American Cinematographer Magazine.
