HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MINNESOTA!

On this day, 163 years ago, Minnesota became the 32nd state. It will always be #1 in my heart. Minnesotan is the adjective I use to describe myself first before anything else. I am so proud to be from this land of 10,000 lakes. Like my hometown’s leading lady said in her most famous of […]

Wedding

C +D: A BEMIDJI SPRING WEDDING

 Carrie and Danny had been together awhile. A long while. But it was a great love story that began four years ago when this northern Minnesota girl met this California boy, and one that began it’s next chapter amongst friends and family one late March weekend.   As the hometown girl, it was important for Carrie […]

Engagement

H +J: A WINTER ENGER TOWER ENGAGEMENT

    Enger Tower Park is such a popular Duluth locale no matter the season, but if someone is seeking true beauty, it is amazing in the winter. I don’t know if it is the clean snow cover that makes is extra amazing, or if it is the hike on an ice-like road since the […]

Sugar and spice and so, so nice: Nicole I GLAMOUR

If there is one thing I am all about, it is empowering fellow women and letting my camera catch their inner and outer beauty to show each lady how lovely they are, inside and out. Nicole made that job so easy one November day, as she simply shined like the autumn sun above.   Nicole […]

Seniors

Compassionate, friendly, humorous: Willie, Class of 2017

“I know that this is all about senior photos,” he said, “but I was wondering, could we do a couple, just her and me?”   Her being his super-sweet, super-sociable girlfriend, who trucked along with us through the woods with a smile that never wavered. Not for one second.   How do I say no […]

Into the woods: A northern Minnesotan fall maternity session

I love photography because of all the great people I meet along the way, people who start out as potential clients but become friends within the course of the session. A close second to the relationships is the places that I get to see. It’s so awesome when the two can come together to make […]

36 EXPOSURES: MINNEAPOLIS

  Minneapolis. When I was choosing a college, it was too far away. Now that I am an adult, it cannot be close enough.   I am a small-town girl, no doubt. I find comfort in the confines that I so often push up against. When I get my wings in the the form of […]

Love and laughter on Lake Wabana: An end-of-summer Grand Rapids, MN family session

Merrian-Webster always provides us one definition: beg [beg]. Verb. To ask for as a gift, as charity, or as favor.   A dictionary as written by Garrison-Kheilor, however, may provide a different definition: beg [beg]. Noun. A container or receptacle of leather, plastic, cloth, paper, etc., capable of being closed at the mouth; pouch. SEE: […]

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 […]

#SweetFreja: Grand Rapids, MN Newborn Session

It’s been a week since I met little Freja, and I just cannot get over her hair.   Dan and Elizabeth’s sweet little lovely lady has just this amazing mass of dark, dark hair that, according to the parents, was styled into a Mohawk the day she was born and has remained that was since. […]

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.
