Rock climbing + backpacking adventures, wearing booties with dresses, seizing any opportunity to nap, drinking loads of matcha, repeating outfits, preferring wild places over cities, capturing raw moments 

what I'm known for:

Since I was a child, I created with any medium that I could get my hands on. I drew. Painted. Sculpted. Molded. 

But, when I was 13, my grandfather Fritz allowed me a day with his Minolta film camera, and from there, my creativity shifted. 

I photographed friends, and loved ones. I took self-portraits and photographed little details. Whatever I found beautiful, I photographed. 

Photography was, and is, my catharsis, and my mode of expression. 

But, in 2010, I began second shooting with professional photographers at weddings, and I found my niche. 

Back then, I would've never imagined that this would become my job, but I've fallen completely in love with it! I get to be a part of some of the most intimate times of peoples' lives and create beautiful and unforgettable art with them. 

Creativity runs in my veins.

TRANSFORMING THE MUNDANE INTO A FRESH PERSPECTIVE OR REVEALING THE UNDERLYING LINES OF PAIN AND SENSUALITY THAT SHAPE OUR REALITY AND TOUCH OUR CORES. HER PICTURES TELL STORIES WITHOUT WORDS. TIME IS FLEETING, BUT THROUGH THE SNAP OF HER LENS SHE ENCOURAGES US TO PAUSE, PONDER, SOAK IN THE VALUE OF A PERSON'S IDENTITY, OR MARVEL AT THE DELIGHT OF A WELL-COOKED MEAL, OR SPOT THE SUBTLE DETAILS OF INTRICATE ARCHITECTURE THAT WE MIGHT NORMALLY OVER-LOOK. SHE IS A PERFECTIONIST, NO DOUBT. BUT HER VISIONS PROVOKE US TO ANALYZE THIS LIFE FOR NOT ONLY WHAT IT IS, BUT ALSO THE INFINITE POSSIBILITY OF WHAT IT COULD BE.."

"KAYLA ALLOWS US TO SEE THE WORLD THROUGH HER OWN CREATIVE VISION...

MY HUSBAND HIRED KAYLA TO PHOTOGRAPH OUR PROPOSAL, AND WE LOVED THE PHOTOGRAPHS SO MUCH WE ENDED UP CHOOSING HER TO SHOOT OUR ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS AND OUR PROFESSIONAL HEADSHOTS. SHE DIRECTS HER CLIENTS WELL AND PROVIDES A COMFORTABLE EXPERIENCE, ESPECIALLY FOR THOSE WHO MAY BE A LITTLE UNCOMFORTABLE IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA. SHE’S VERY PROFESSIONAL AND ALWAYS TAKES THE TIME TO LISTEN TO OUR IDEAS. SHE’S ALWAYS VERY PREPARED AND HAS A LOT OF IDEAS FOR DIFFERENT POSES, BACKGROUNDS, ETC. I WOULD RECOMMEND KAYLA TO ANYONE LOOKING FOR WEDDING, ENGAGEMENT, FAMILY, OR HEADSHOT PHOTOGRAPHS. MY HUSBAND AND I WILL DEFINITELY BE HIRING HER AGAIN AND AGAIN!

THE QUALITY, ATTENTION TO DETAIL, AND SURREAL NATURE OF KAYLA’S PHOTOS ARE ASTOUNDING.
