my story

I don't remember the exact moment I fell in love with photography, but I know that throughout my whole childhood I always had a camera. I started with a Polaroid, I remember being so excited that I could scrapbook the photo right away. I eventually moved on to digital and kept it with me at all times. Whether it was a field trip or a Friday night football game. College is where I took my first photography class, learning how to use a film manual camera was challenging but fun. From then on I've been taking photos for family and friends and decided to make this my business.

I strive to achieve the light and airy style of photos. So if you like my style I would love to hear from you and capture your memories.

I would recommend Kayla to anyone who needs anything from a small photo shoot to a full wedding. She is kind, professional, and always has great ideas to help make the pictures look amazing! She has taken pictures of my fiancé and I for a couple years now and they never disappoint.
