Katie Estel


Hey, I'm Katie! I'm a 26-year-old photographer from a small town in Indiana. I am an upbeat and outgoing person with an insane passion is to capturing life's most meaningful moments. I can't wait to meet everyone and make this summer at Camp Carolina the best year yet!

What are you most proud of/biggest achievement in life so far?:

My biggest achievement in life so far would definitely be putting myself through college for photography. I attended Georgian College for Digital Photography and Imaging in 2016 and graduated with honors in 2018. Since then I have been working on my own personal freelance photography business photographing families, couples, and weddings!
What is your favorite hobby/sport/thing to do during your free time?:

I love to experience nature in all its forms. But my absolute favorite thing to do in my spare time, when I'm not shooting or editing photos, would be kayaking. There is nothing better than the peace and tranquillity of gliding across the water, especially during a good sunset.
What is your favorite thing about working with children?:

My favorite thing about working with children is that there is never a dull moment. They help teach you how to not take life so seriously, and can truly bring out the best in people. It's also really rewarding to feel that you are making a positive influence in their lives and their futures.
What impact are you most excited to make this year at CCB?:

I'm most excited to bring my excitement and enthusiasm to CCB this year! I want to help inspire kids to love and appreciate the beauty of nature and everything it has to offer. I also want to help inspire kids to be themselves and feel confident and proud to do so.
What goal or camp philosophy do you really want your campers to learn this summer?:

At the end of the summer, I want my campers to walk away with a sense of self and feel confident in that. I hope that they can learn something about themselves and be able to step out of their comfort zones while making friends for a lifetime in the process.
