Spirited, kind, and free-thinking: Tesla I CLASS OF 2018

  From the very minute her first email arrived, it was obvious that Tesla was going to be a pretty great gal with whom to work. Her presentation of herself through mere words in an email were impressive; her maturity and humor bubbled out of her message and off the screen of my iPhone…it was […]

Warm, witty, wonderful: Brady I CLASS OF 2017

It such a wonderful thing, the cyclical nature of life. No, not the circle of life—even though that’s wonderful, too (both the cycle and the song about it). I mean the way that the people and things spiral around and around our lives, coming in (and sometimes heading out) at the quirkiest of times.   […]

Cheerful, calm, committed: Hannah I CLASS OF 2017

  Sometimes, looking through the lens grants us a great glimpse of the future. We can see a growing love on a wedding day or the first of years of grins and giggles from a brand new baby or even the hope and light of the next generation of a senior session. It is a […]

Hardworking, positive, considerate: Bryce, Class of 2017

Sometimes in the middle of sessions, I find myself just grinning because of the client I have before me. Be it their smile or their personality, their funny comments, their natural sense of humor…even though it is my job to make them beam in front of the camera, it is often me that is just […]

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 […]

Focused, determined, dedicated: Jordan, Class of 2017

I love senior photo season for lots of reasons, but none more so than being able to provide these young adults an opportunity to see themselves for who they really are, not what they believe themselves to be. Not many high school students see their faces beyond their back-to-school mugshots. It is such a great joy for me […]

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.
