My style of family photography is something like: "your lives in motion." I resonate so deeply with photojournalistic (more candid and realistic) photography, especially with families, because your REAL, messy, life, is worthy.

If you're looking for someone to preserve your favorite family sunset walk together, playing in the yard, celebrating your loved one's journey's end here on earth, those first-moments of becoming parents, or  or anything in-between, WELCOME.

Families

What    is   photojournalistic   family.  photography?

Truly. Being a family photographer means embracing all stages. I am passionate about partnering with families through the good, painful, uncharted, and REAL.

I    document    all
authentic  stages  of  life

Our IVF story has literally been documented through incredibly raw, joyful, real, moments, through the artistry of Kayla. She has been there since the beginning, and the gift of our story-through pictures is beyond words.

Working with Kayla was like working with someone who truly saw us for who we were. We felt so comfortable (literally) showing our journey, and we are SO grateful we took that leap to trust her. 

For anyone on the fence about being vulnerable as a family and going for a more authentic or adventurous route, you will look back on your INCREDIBLE gallery for years to come and FEEL the memories. Working with her brought us so much closer and we are forever grateful.


These earliest memories of our son are everything.

We had a wonderful experience doing family photos. Her calm presence, positive attitude, and professionalism made the experience a memory in itself! Our photos turned out amazing, and timeless. We will be working with Kayla continually in the future to document all aspects of our growing family!

The Dearys: Extended Family Session :)

Kayla is the absolute best! She made us feel immediately comfortable in front of the camera, making our time with her fun, easy and authentic! Her detailed eye for stunning locations and moments gave us the most heartfelt memories captured in her photos; and her edits kept such a glowingly natural and real feel to our gallery. She captured "us" and this time so beautifully.

We worked with her for a maternity/parental photo shoot on a hot day and she was so thoughtful and efficient every step of the way and during the days leading up too. We love Kayla and will be connecting with her for photos forever!

We will be connecting with her for photos forever.

DOWNLOAD AND PRINT RELEASE
Family Sessions Begin at $500

I will ALWAYS honor this request! I have every client fill out a contract which states that it is ALWAYS a person's right to request this privacy. We will communicate this preference ALWAYS:)

What if I don't want my children on social media/website?

  • As weird as it sounds, my approach is very much: interact with one another and just be together (walking in a field, doing the dishes, having a quiet moment together on the couch listening to records). These little moments are what I hone in on.
  • HOWEVER- I am one of those people who feels awkward in FRONT of the camera, so I definitely guide people and ensure they know I've got them covered. I offer slight suggestions or adjustments and then we go on our merry way together.


What should we "do" at our session?

  • TOP priority: what you are comfortable in.
  • WITH this said, I have found that certain ideas can really help guide families toward flattering, non-distracting, natural clothing.
  • I have a wardrobe guide I send my families to make sure they feel confident and at ease!

What should we wear?

  • Long story short, they are exactly what you need :) Photojournalistic family photography is SUCH a blast because sessions are each incredibly unique. 
  • My sessions start at 1 hour and my extended packages for larger family sessions ensure everyone has time to feel comfortable, change clothes if they want, and enjoy the experience 




How long are family sessions?

Common Qs

Do you offer payment plans?

YES. Similar to elopements, I feel families shouldn't have to compromise quality for their special family session. I work with families individually to find a payment plan/schedule that eases their minds. I firmly believe in this. I encourage people to communicate individual needs. If we are the right fit, I will do whatever you need to ensure we partner together. ALL of my packages are ALL inclusive for this reason, as well: transparency. 

What type of family sessions do you do?

  • Truly, I preserve the memories of families where they're at in a natural way that is reflective of who they are. This may include:
  1. maternity: in-home, intimate sessions, or more playful outside
  2. delivery
  3. newborn
  4. family adventure sessions (an evening hike, a stroll through the neighborhood, etc.)
  5. celebration of life (with great care, planning, and consideration to family needs)
  6. milestones




Talking for hours and dozing off with the tv on. The record skips a few times and we pick a new song to fall asleep to. Morning coffee, a few minutes late to work, a brisk walk down the street window shopping for the upcoming fall season. Wool sweaters, bare trees, cold nights. 

Question 8

So cold we can see our breath as we hike the open fields in the fog. Climbing and chasing waterfalls while the sun sets behind the mountain and the snow falls in the river. Chatting with locals while we sip our coffee and head out for the next adventure.

Question 7

Morning coffee and reading the newspaper together, the cool fall breeze blowing through the window as you pour another cup. Black denim and leather boots, the deepest crimson flannel. Rose gold and velvet. Rich and lush. Red wine and dark twilight nights.

Question 6

Cozy sweaters, vintage demin, and Pabst while telling one of a kind love stories. The trials and tribulations of love, joy, and happiness. Lastly, champagne brunch and avocado toast while surrounded by the finest exposed brick, dreamcatchers, and maps to our souls.
