I'm so thankful you're here.
Based in Central Oregon, I've been in this sweet biz since 2017, though I’ve been taking photos since I was young. Family has always been so important to me growing up, so capturing the connection and witnessing the dynamic between you and are closest people is my biggest dream.
You'll like working with me if you're the type of person to say "I hate getting my photo taken, I'm too awkward!" or something along those lines. I'm the most awkward gal I know, so trust me - I feel you. The thing I hear the most from people after their session is that I made them feel comfortable and like a friend, & I take a whole lotta pride in that.
When I’m not taking photos, you can find me thrifting, playing animal crossing, or attempting to make healthy cookies.
I love belly laughs and having a truth dropping conversation as much as I appreciate a good dad joke or quote from New Girl.
I believe that getting your photo taken should never feel awkward. When I show up to your wedding or session, I promise you peace of mind, photos from someone who feels like a trusted friend; who will give you unfussy, simple but significant photos that feel timeless, honest & true to you.
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!
As a first time mama, I’ve thought many times that I wish I could bottle up these newborn, and first year moments to re-live 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!
WOW! If I could give Kayla more than five stars, I would. From my very first conversation with her, I knew she was going to be the right person to shoot our wedding, and she absolutely proved me right! Not only is she an extremely talented photographer, she's the kind of person who makes everyone feel like a friend. She made our special day so much more fun, and honestly, we kind of forgot we were even being photographed - that's how comfortable we were in front of her camera. I can't say enough positive things about Kayla, but if you are in the market for a photographer for your special occasion, HIRE HER! You will be so glad you did! Thank you, Kayla, for capturing our day so beautifully!
