Hello

I'm Kayla.

I photograph families at every stage of your story; from the "OMG we made a baby" to the kiddos getting ready to leave the nest. 

How can I help tell your story?

No matter the occasion, or for no occasion at all, I would love to work with you. The smiles, the cuddles, the looks of pure love; the milestones, the moments you want to never forget, the images you want on your walls. I want to help you create the perfect session that you'll adore today and tomorrow and will pass down for several generations.

For over 15 years, I have been the welcoming committee for hundreds of babies as a Kansas City photographer. Then I've watched them grow; learning how to crawl and then walk; hearing them as they learn how to talk and grow little (and big) personalities; seeing baby teeth come in and then fall out and then come in again in all of the awkward glory. I've watched baby girls become big sisters and I've watched baby brothers become big brothers. And I'm reaching a point where those sweet babies are growing closer to walking across a stage that gains them access to the big, big world. 

Through all of this, my style: my art, has grown into an experience that throws away all of the traditional expectations of family photography and focuses on what you want to remember about the chapter you are writing in your family story right now. I strive to capture the mess, the ornery, the sweet, the honesty, the joy. 

Grab a drink and stay awhile! I hope you get lost in the galleries of the beautiful family photos that I have collected through the years. I would be honored to add your family to that collection. Let me know how I can tell your story!

~Kayla
