While I will admit to having a low-key Caribou coffee and trash TV addiction, (vanilla iced crafted press and The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills), most of the other parts of my life are pretty down to earth. When I'm not running our homestead or caring for our small children or animals, you can likely find me in the kitchen or wrapped up in a good book. I love trying new recipes, (kiiiind of a foodie), or learning a new skill, (I love crochet!).  

The reason you need a photographer of all things motherhood is simple, time is a thief. That's why I've poured all my expertise and knowledge about being a mother and a nationally published photographer into an experience for other moms that I wish I would have had myself. Beautiful styling and clothing for the whole family, a completely laid back but custom experience with no pressure or stress, and quality archival prints and wall art to decorate your home will be the basis of your Eau Claire, WI photography experience with me. No more coulda/woulda/shoulda's about printing, displaying and  preserving your most precious memories. 

If you're in a stage of life where handing all this off to someone else in order to accomplish beauty and simplicity in your home through heirloom artwork sounds like a dream, then don't hesitate to reach out friend! I'd love to have a small part in thanking your future self 5 years from now. 

Eau Claire Photography

I'm kyla

A snapshot into my life

It's no surprise my number one favorite thing is my family! 

While there's no shortage of characters in this goof troop, being a mom is my number one priority and blessing. 

Their outfits may look cute here, but usually you can find them wild and free outside on our small homestead, (probably covered in dirt). 

And we wouldn't have it any other way. ;)


Our family LOVES learning and visiting new places. Whether it may be a new state,  museum,  park, or zoo like you see here; we're always up for a little adventure. 

We're all originally from MN, but we've also traveled to Texas, California, Arizona, Florida as a family. 

Going on adventures

We have more than a few free range things on our property besides our children!

We have 16 wonderful chickens from which we enjoy our daily fresh eggs from, 2 barn cats and 2 cute pups. We've planted multiple gardens, a berry patch, and a small orchard as well. If that wasn't enough, I have dreams to one day own a dairy cow, as I do most of our cooking from scratch on cast iron. 

We love living a natural outdoor lifestyle!

My Favorite Things

Working with Kyla felt very natural. Aaron and I were immediately comfortable. The images were so beautiful it was hard to pick our favorites!

I'm so grateful Kyla was able to come to our home and take photos!

My biggest concerns about taking family pictures is always what to wear and what poses to choose. We want to match without looking like we tried to match and we want to choose poses that don't look posed. Kyla not only dressed our entire family, but the entire photoshoot felt so natural. She knew exactly how to pose us. Her style is so elegant, yet whimsical, all of the shots were so fluid and so perfectly captured "us".

Hands down these are the best pictures of our family that have ever been captured.

My family was able to work with Kyla for a newborn and family home session in January of 2022. She was extremely professional and accommodating with our three rambunctious kiddos. Her laid back photography style allowed us to be a family while she captured natural moments.

I would recommend her photography work to anyone!

Kyla provided the best, most relaxed and fun experience for our family photos! The entire process from the get-to-know-you survey prior to our shoot, sweet gifted story book, and prize basket our daughter loved! She was able to capture the spirit of our daughter and family with her beautiful photography. 

Family Session

We cannot wait to work with her in years to come!

I had a maternity session with Kyla at 37 weeks with my one-and-a-half-year-old son and husband. Being this far along with my pregnancy finding myself ‘beautiful’ has been a struggle. Without knowing our backstory, Kyla quickly made me feel truly beautiful. She gave us so many compliments and made sure that each pose she guided us into was one that I was comfortable being in. My favorite part of the session was seeing my son, Asher, be natural. Kyla is not only excellent at being welcoming and making you truly feel great about yourself-she is professional and prepared.

I would without a doubt recommend Kyla to anyone who is looking for maternity photography. 

Kyla took wonderful photos for our family. Our little one ( about 1 year old) is shy, and I was afraid that he would not laugh before camera. Kyla made my worry unnecessary. My baby had a happy time during the session and laughed all the time. Kyla made all of us relaxing and happy before camera to make wonderful photos. Her photos are vivid, and both the photo composition and the colors are perfect.

Kyla is the best photographer I have ever seen. I will recommend her to anyone with confidence. She is an amazing artist!

I had a wonderful experience when Kyla came into our home to take pictures of my newborn baby girl and my family. She was so professional and easy going. She brought a few cute props and had a tons of photo shoot ideas. I enjoyed having her shoot my family!
