Bend Oregon Family Photographer

Natural, honest and unfussy family photos

Because real
life means

so much more

We take photos so your baby girl can eventually see glimpses into her past, like what snuggling with her mama looked like when she was just born; to remember your son’s favorite dance moves, to look back on the mess in your home that housed all the love and life throughout the years. Whether you’re wanting a short and sweet session at your favorite park, a longer documentary session at home to remember the everyday moments, or an extended family session with the whole crew in town, I’ll be there.

If you want a photo experience that prioritizes heart over aesthetics, I’m the Bend Oregon family photographer for you! My documentary approach preserves those perfectly spontaneous moments. Let’s create joyful images of your most meaningful connections.

At Home in the Moment

Check out these family sessions from the blog!

The Garlington Family at Home

The Garlington family has a session in their Redmond home each year! We prioritize taking photos of moments we know the kids will want to remember once they’re older, getting rid of the posed photos to make the session fun and easy. If you’ve been on the fence about a session at home, these photos might change your mind.

“As a first time mama, I’ve thought many times that I wish I could bottle up these newborn, and first year moments to relive in five, ten, or fifty years from now. Kayla’s photos are the closest thing to me ever being able to do that. Rather than staged poses, Kayla is gifted at capturing those precious candid moments that mean so much. I will treasure these photos forever!”

Lindsay, Redmond Family Session

“Once you meet Kayla you’ll want her to take your pictures FOREVER! She can make even the most awkward in front of a camera person (me) feel comfortable and beautiful! Kayla has been a huge part of so many of our big life events, and we wouldn’t have it any other way! She feels like family! From our engagement shoot to the newborn shoot, she’s been there for it all! I can’t wait to book our next session!”

Cassie, Sunriver Family Session

Unfussy, easy, and fun; getting your family photos taken is SO great when you take the pressure off and just let your kids be kids. For family sessions, you can expect some exploring, joking around and fun for up to one hour. While I have a candid approach to these sessions, we do promise to take a couple photos of you smiling at the camera, too!

Documentary Lifestyle Session

These sessions are special – I get a glimpse into your life at home and document it for your family and your future, so your sweet baby girl can eventually see glimpses into her past, like what snuggling with her mama looked like when she was just born, your sons favorite dance move, the sweet mess in your home that houses all the love and life throughout the years. I know you treasure these moments, and years from now I want you to never forget the dance parties in the kitchen and toys scattered all over the room.

I love being part of the planning princess and getting to know you better!

during the session

My goal during your session is to document your family in your natural state – no stuffy poses or forced smiles here. We’ll hang out, run around with your kids, play with your dog and you’ll make some memories while I’m snapping away. You don’t have to worry about a thing, this is the fun part.
