Meet the Author

KaSandra Mitchell

Hello, lovely. My name is KaSandra, but you can call me KaS. Before you ask, yes, it is actually spelled that way. I suppose my mom wanted to make sure my life would be interesting and that I’d always have a story to tell. Well, Ma, you got your wish.

I’m a Kentuckian through and through, but you’ll likely see my photos from different corners of the world. I like to keep people on their toes. This old soul of mine is trapped inside the body of an adventurous twenty-something — always wandering and wondering.

You can usually find me with coffee in my hand and a camera within arm’s reach. When I’m not directly attached to the hip of my ginger-bearded better half, I’m likely at a barre, Pilates or yoga class. Don’t let those activities fool ya, I’m always down for cycling, hiking, or basically anything to do with water.

After experiencing the most tragic, heartbreaking, and wonderful events in my life simultaneously, I wanted to remind myself and others that we can live a balanced life of badassery and humility. And so The Humble Lion was born.

I don’t always know what I can do to help make the world a better place, so I write. I’ve found this is the easiest way to explore my own thoughts and present them to others in a way they are more willing to try to understand. My writing is for me.

When words just won’t do, I create photographs. I’ve been told my photos are genuine and moody. This is a true reflection of my nature. I have a deep love for photography as it documents moments we won’t get back. My photography is for others.

I’d really love to hear from you directly! You can send me an email right from here, subscribe for updates, specials, and anecdotes, or reach out on my favorite platform — Instagram.
