What's included

When you book your senior experience with me, you get a client-exclusive guide full of tips and tricks, wardrobe styling with access to my Client Closet and access to all my favorite locations! I send out a questionnaire to get to know you better and I customize the session especially to you!

Each photo session is 1.5-2 hours and includes 1-2 locations and 3-4 outfit  changes. I'll post a social media sneak peek 48 hours after your session and your full gallery (of 60+ photos) will be delivered 3 weeks after your photo session.

I like to keep things easy and straightforward. No hidden fees, no complicated pricing structure, no worrying about print minimums or which package is right for you. One price for the session experience, and the option to purchase professional quality prints and products from your online gallery!

Simple, straightforward and all the things you need for the perfect senior photo experience!

Not only is Kyla a super-talented photographer, she also makes people feel very comfortable because of her genuinely uplifting personality. My son isn't crazy about getting his picture taken, but because of Kyla's fun sense of humor he had a great time and she captured amazing pictures. 

Kyla works magic!”

Frequently Asked Questions

When you book a photo session with me, not only will you be sent a Style Guide, you'll also have access to my Client Closet and personal wardrobe styling. I'm always available for outfit suggestions, and tips on what outfits look best together! 

In the questionnaire I send, I'll ask what type of location you're interested in (urban, rural, grassy field, big buildings, etc.) and will suggest locations based off your feedback. 

Your session fee includes 60+ digital images delivered to you in an online gallery & app. From there you can easily view, download, share & purchase prints through my professional printing options. The best of both worlds!

I sure do! I've done photo sessions in over 15 states across the U.S. and am always up for an adventure! Message me for my travel rates.  

I offer limited sessions per year. Booking a date with me requires a non refundable deposit because it is taking that date away from other potential clients. Cancelling ends up costing me money. If you need to cancel or reschedule, it will require another deposit. 

Lucky for you, I take all the stress of weather watching off of you! Believe it or not, cloudy and windy days can be part of the recipe for amazing photos. But if the forecast is looking poor for the day of your photo session (rain, too much wind, etc.), I'll reach out a few days before and we'll reschedule for no extra charge. 

I know how hard it is to wait for your pictures, which is why I post a social media sneak peek 48 hours after your photos session. I also pride myself on quick turn around times and you can expect your full digital gallery delivered to you 3 weeks after your session date. No waiting months for you photos!

I edit light, bright and true to color, and focus my edits on color correction, cropping, and straightening. I fully believe you are beautiful the way you are, so I do not smoothen skin or liquify in photoshop, but instead I focus on capturing you in the most flattering poses at our photo session. If requested, I do minimal editing for temporary things like acne, scrapes, bruises etc. Reach out if you have specific questions on editing.
