work together

I'm a family and high school senior photographer, a homeschooling momma to 5 kids, and am happily married to my best friend, Ben. I love cute socks, love to travel and am passionate about healthy and wholesome eating. (Although I'm always ready for a pint of Jeni's ice cream or a bag Jelly Bellies!)

My photography style is light, bright and colorful. My focus is to create a photo experience that is seamless, stress free and one where you feel comfortable and confident in front of the camera.  I love working with people, and the photos that get me most excited are the ones that capture joy, personality and connection.

all about me

I have photographed hundreds of people in over 15 states across the U.S. I continue to capture photos of my own children and am passionate about teaching mommas to do the same. 

Whether you're looking for a family photographer, a high school senior photo session or you're a momma looking to learn photography, you're in the right place!

I studied Elementary Education in college, and taught in elementary school, preschool and special needs classrooms. And now I'm a homeschool teacher to the best students of all! My own kids! 

Along the way, photography has turned into a dream and passion that I never knew I had! In 2012, I bought a nice camera to preserve memories of my own kids. Friends and family started asking me to take pictures for them and I found I really loved it. In 2015 I started growing my photography business and I haven't looked back!

“Kyla is incredible. Our whole family thought we were just playing and we ended up with the most gorgeous photos! She is amazing with kids. Her work is beautiful. Highly recommend!"


“Kyla is such a fun and bubbly person, as well as an amazing photographer! That combination made for a super fun photo shoot that left me with beautiful photos!"


“Kyla pays attention to the details and comes prepared. Her personality makes her really easy to be around."


“Kyla is AMAZING!! She has obviously put a LOT of time and effort into learning about the little details that take her photos to the next level!"

I am super passionate about healthy eating and I love fresh and wholesome foods! Spicy dill pickles, feta cheese, and fresh peaches are a few that top the list! Gourmet ice cream (Jeni's in particular) and Jelly Bellies are my weakness. 

all the good stuff!

I have been to 48 out of 50 US states and in 2020 our family spent a year living in an RV and traveling the country (which was a dream come true)! I love doing photography everywhere I go, whether that be taking nature photos or booking a photo session, guaranteed I'll have photos from a trip! 

Explore the world!

Ben is the calm to my crazy; the logic to balance my creativity. He is the one who helps me with all the numbers and non-creative things in my business. We love to sing and play the piano, play board games and explore new places together.

You can take the girl out of the mountains, but you can't take the mountains out of the girl! I grew up in the Rocky Mountains and hiking is hands down my favorite past time ever! Any chance I get, you can find me hiking, whether that be in the mountains or other hidden gems. 

My favorite place to be...

My life revolves around these kids and I am so grateful. Whether it be homeschool, driving around to extra curriculars, or one-on-one dates, I'm with these guys majority of my time. It's a huge commitment, but so rewarding. It truly is a blessing to be their mom and grow along side them every day.
