California based model and self-portrait photographer Kimberly has become Instagram famous in the space of just three years. She's always wanted to be a model and started directing her own photoshoots in her parents spare bedroom in the hope of catching the attention of modeling agencies. 

In 2019 alone she directed 127 of her own photoshoots, most at home and with minimal budgets. She's now built up over 300k followers on her Instagram since she started out.
