Hi! I'm Kayla, a Pennsylvania Maternity and Newborn Photographer

30 something momma with anxiety and ADHD, obsessed with Gyros and root beer, lover of coffee and chocolate.

"Kayla has helped our family realize the value of having family photos taken, as well as getting them printed! In such a digital age, it’s easy to just keep photos on your phone and never make physical copies. With Kayla’s help, our house looks beautiful and cozy with our family photos hung up everywhere! Thank you Kayla for a wonderful experience!"

ONCE UPON A TIME

I worked a 9-5 and did my photography as just some hobby, until...it wasn't

I photographed clients on the weekends, I spent late nights editing and educating myself, saving every penny for new gear. For years I did this, until 2020 hit HARD. I realized how important maternity and newborn photography was to me and to other women.

Thanks to Anna T Photography for the branding shots.

Then I finally found my purpose, helping women feel comfortable in their own skin pregnant. 

I travel all over the state and really even the east coast to serve my clients. I sometimes swear and talk too much, so trust me, I'm not offended if I'm not the photographer for you. I made the choice to become a maternity and newborn photographer because helping mommas feel beautiful in one of their most vulnerable times in life is my JAM. As a momma myself I am incredibly aware of how pregnancy is 100% not as beautiful as everyone tells you. Ya know, like when they told you there would be glowing.. I am here for you to help you find that glow.

I have been photographing families since 2015 and in 2020 after years of my own infertility and pregnancy loss my rollercoaster of grief, loss and finally meeting my sweet rainbow baby led my heart to maternity and newborn photography. I had a new appreciation of that special time and for how hard some women work to achieve it. When I purchased my first client closet gown, all I knew at that time was that I wanted to provide more for my maternity clients. I never dreamed how it would grow and what it would turn into. Now, 40 + gowns later, my client closet is absolutely everything I could ever want, and everything my clients need! High end gowns for every body shape, size and complexion.

my client closet is seriously my baby, if you haven't noticed from the million times I've mentioned it
