Dear Freja… I A YEAR OF SMILES

  Lovely Little Freja,   It is hard to believe that a year with you has already flown by. I cannot believe that little peanut with a mass of dark hair is now a little lady who can crawl and dang near stand up.   I have known your parents for a long, long time, […]

#SweetFreja is almost 1 year old?! I SMASH CAKE

 Select Sundays this past year have found me in one of the most loving places with two great people and their little lady. And a grandma and grandpa, as well as a papa (who I just can’t believe is anywhere near 80 years old). It’s been several sessions that were nothing but love and smiles and […]

Little Lady Ivy is (almost) One Year: A Twin Cities Smash Cake Session I A YEAR OF SMILES

Multiple things were learned prior to Ivy’s smash cake session: Cub Foods has little five-inch cakes that travel very well. Time goes way, way too fast. When all else fails, 3D print it. It was the cutest little cake, with the softest pink frosting with a one-of-a-kind plastic gold cake topper (which was not cut […]

#SweetFreja is 9 months! I A YEAR OF SMILES

In Norse mythology, the goddess Freja is one tough chick.  As the goddess of fertility and beauty, she’s got a lot on her mythological plate. She is accompanied by her pet boar, Hildisvini, who is actually her protégé Ottar in search of his ancestry.   In Dan and Elizabeth’s living room, Freja is accompanied by […]

Little Lady Ivy is Nine Month! I A YEAR OF SMILES

 At nine months old, Ivy has clearly become a little woman-in-the-making. In my last meeting with her, I learned she has a morning make-up routine with Momma, loves her neon green ball, and takes a couple moments to wake up, and then she is all smiles.   I dig you, littlest girlfriend, especially on the […]

Baby Ivy is 6 Months! I A YEAR OF SMILES

Once October comes to a close, we Minnesotans never know what November we are going to see. Yes, March traditionally comes in like a lamb or a lion, but November, well, he can sometimes can a bear—and I don’t mean Yogi or Boo Boo.   It was such a pleasant surprise, then, when a couple […]

A little love outdoors: Twin Cities, Minnesota Newborn Session

“Oh, she loves the outdoors!”   This was absolute music to my ears when I suggested that Ivy, the pretty little lady I’ve met one time before, spend her three-month session outside. As I’ve said a couple of times, it’s been kind of a mucky, yucky, rainy summer up north; I had hopes for some […]

Dan + Elizabeth: Home on the Family Farm

I hope you all have the opportunity to meet as selfless people as Dan and Elizabeth.   They have truly lived love in the name of their first born son Leo, a beautiful boy born an angel to them. They have jumped head first in their support of the March of Dimes, doing all that […]

BEHIND THE LENS

ABOUT KAYLA

At home on the road. Forever-focused on authenticity and the thrilling art of creation; always found in the moments that leave me breathless and in awe. 

After fourteen years as a high school educator, I stepped back through a door I thought was closed. Journalism came back into my life. Armed with a Masters of Arts in Communication, I was again challenged and prepared to tell the stories that would become history, but with a twist: It is now your legacy of love that I document. The tension I seek is that from every tear, smile, laugh, and moment of love on your wedding day.
