All those little details you never ever want to forget? I'm on it. Let’s jam to Baby Shark and have some fun! Sessions take place in my home studio or at an outdoor location (weather permitting) and last about 30 minutes. All milestone sessions include use of my beautiful client closet full of the more adorable outfits, tiebacks, and props. You will receive 25 + high resolution photos that will be available via digital download as well as prints available for purchase. 
You can choose to add on a family or sibling mini for $100 - this includes a quick 10 minute mini and 10-15 additional images. 

My family sessions are meant to be an evening spent playing, cuddling, laughing until your belly hurts, and just CONNECTING. All I ask is that you show up, be yourselves, ready to BE together. I want to capture the way your children hold your hand, the way your spouse looks at you, the way you play with your baby's sweet curls and basically how you would be together as if i'm not even there. All the best photos will be delivered in high resolution via digital gallery for you to download as well as professional prints if you wish. 



All the beautiful first details! Full newborn sessions usually take 2-3 hours and will include multiple wrapped setups as well as family and sibling photos. These usually take place when baby is 2-3 weeks old. All wraps and props are provided as well as client closet dresses for mama. 
In Home sessions include a 1 hour session with lifestyle and candid portraits in your home. We will use areas of your home with good natural light, baby's nursery, or outdoors. 

Short and the very sweetest captures of your little one. A one hour session in my studio with just babe. It does include wrapped poses and you get to choose your 7 favorites or can purchase more for $10/photo.

Studio or In Home Deluxe Sessions

Essential Session




In person famiily or  newborn based



First off, I am so dang honored you'd consider mentoring under me. I take great pride in creating an individual and personal experience for each of my mentees. The biggest thing being that this creates an ongoing relationship between us where I am here to be of help in any way I can! 

I would be so honored to set up a model session for you. It would include a 1 hour pre-session meeting where we would meet up for coffee at my home to discuss areas you want to focus on. Then, I will get a session all lined up and we will shoot side by side during the newborn or outdoor family session. Really it's just so beneficial to see how others run their sessions and what things work best. 

Then, after the model call we would sit down together for an hour or so and go over any questions that came up, debrief, and then go over some editing, etc.

There's nothing I love more than capturing those sweet first details of wrinkly toes and curled up babies. I have experience in all Des Moines and Pella area hospitals and this includes being on call for your due date. 

Fresh 48 Session



Family & Maternity

“Kayla’s makes each session so fun and truly captures our family’s charm, both
individually and as a whole. Not only are we grateful for Kayla’s gift of photography,
but even more blessed for her friendship. We can’t imagine using any other
photographer in central Iowa.”


“Not only is Kayla insanely talented and great to work with, she is pure magic with my girls. No one else has been able to get our toddlers to even cooperate even half as well! You made us feel comfortable and we seriously had a blast with you. I wholeheartedly believe you are the best photographer around and I can’t wait to have you capture my family for years to come! I won’t stop shouting your praises to anyone and everyone looking for a photographer.”

– Danielle

“I can’t say enough about Kayla. She’s like an extension of our family in every session by just going with the flow and capturing our true personalities – from calming my nerves to making it a fun session for not just my daughter, but my husband too! She provides just enough direction to highlight who we are! Kayla’s touch is in every photo and what a difference that makes to create a photo I’m eager to look back on year over year.”

– Amber
