Caroline was such a blast to work with, we had the most perfect weather, so many laughs, and captured the most gorgeous photos of her! She was so adventurous as she climbed through all the prickly weeds! I loved working with Caroline and capturing her senior photos. I also found some new spots here in Muncie, if you are looking to schedule your senior photos and like any of these gorgeous locations let me know!Read More
Emma & Brandon drove from Ohio to scout out some wedding venues and had me capture their engagement photos while they were visiting! As soon as they walked up, a dog was running loose, so I threw my camera down and went chasing it (naturally). After the dog was safe and back with its’ owners, I introduced myself. Within just a few seconds, Emma looks down at my insulin pump (if you didn’t know already, I am a type 1 diabetic and have been for over 17 years) and says, “are you a diabetic?”, and raises her shirt to show me her dexcom sensor! Automatically we connect, because if you are a type 1 diabetic and see each other in public, you are automatically best friends (if you didn’t know that, now you know!) After we talked a while about our dead pancreases, we began shooting at Morrow’s Meadows! These two were so naturally in love, I asked them about how they met and they told me they met on Bumble. She told me that on Bumble, the girl has to reach out to the guy, so she made the first move. I told her about how my boyfriend and I met, and how I walked up to him and shook his hand and said, “Hi, I’m Kyla, what’s your name?” I had such blast capturing these two, and their love for one another! They were so cuddly and cute while bumping hips and almost knocking each other over, cuddling on a log and telling their own inside jokes to make each other laugh.Read More
TITUS is a sweetheart who needs a good loving home! He is so gentle, loving, cuddly, playful, and well mannered! I got to spend a couple hours with him yesterday driving to and from the studio and capturing some adorable shots of him. He listened so well and took the treats so gently, he loved pouncing around playing fetch and was so careful letting me take and throw the toy again! I would take him home in a heart beat after just spending a short amount of time with him, but needs to be the only dog in his home. I promise he will fill your heart with love and affection! Please help find Titus a home, he is currently at Wagglebottoms, where they have been fostering him for a while. Anyone who adopts him, will receive a FREE online gallery with all of his portraits to download and hang all around the house!Read More
Maplewood is home to Dan & April (when it comes to golf courses), they spend their free time playing in golf leagues, vacationing at golf resorts, and even got engaged at a golf course!

Congratulations to the two of you on your engagement, I can not wait to capture your wedding this summer at the same special place!Read More
Waj & Jason flew all the way from Texas to see Jason’s cousin graduate, while visiting for the weekend they had me capture their engagement photos. I have known Jason’s mom now for several years and she helped set up the engagement session. They were so sweet and even had matching shirts and superhero toys for their shoot (aw)! They met while Waj was visiting a friend in Texas, and just clicked! She plans on moving to the United States at the end of this year to stay with Jason! I am so glad that I got the opportunity to capture their sweet love story!Read More
The Swilley family was amazing to work with! Their two kiddos were so mannered and well behaved, but loved being playful, giggling, and running around their parents at Minnetrista. I am so thankful that I can be a preferred photographer at Minnetrista and use their beautiful property to photograph my clients at.Read More

Quinn came to see me in the photo studio for a second time, she is growing up so quick! Her mommy and daddy wanted to get some photos with the birthday girl as well, we used several of my new backdrops that I have available in the photo studio as well as a few different outfits for her! She was such a great little model, I loved capturing her personality and the simplicity of the family photos, with their white and navy outfits.Read More
Hadley and Charlotte were the sweetest little blue eyed blonde sisters to work with! We captured Hadley’s 1 year photos in the studio along with some photos of her and her big sister Charlotte. While Hadley was getting changed, Charlotte helped take photos of her dollies on my props and it was adorable. Happy 1 year to little Hadley, thanks for visiting me in the studio!Read More
I am so excited to show you this past weekend’s project! I say “weekend project” but I spent about a week painting all of the wood, it felt like it was never ending. We spent about 7 hours in the studio on Saturday and about 8 on Sunday finishing up the shelving and organizing all of my props. This turned out 10x better than I ever expected, I could not stop smiling! If you have been in my studio previously, you are not gonna believe the difference it made, it is so much more spacious and open, and now all of my clients can see the props available during sessions.Read More

Mariah & Quin were so cute and sweet to work with. They told me that they were awkward in photos, and they were everything but awkward! They were so naturally sweet and giggly. Mariah and Quin drove over an hour to meet me at Whitetail Tree Farm and capture their adorable engagement photos in the middle of winter! I am so happy that they had me capture such special photos and endured the cold, it was so worth it! I can not wait to share the rest of their gallery with them!Read More

Cheyenne and Randy were sooooo sweet to work with, I had such a great time with this married couple. I hope that I get to work with Cheyenne and Randy again in the future, because it was such a joy capturing them!Read More

Their entire family was such a blast to work with and I am so glad that they came back for more photos so soon.Read More
This is the second year I have captured these three at Whitetail Tree Farm. I think that we have started a tradition and I absolutely love it! We got super lucky with great warm weather (for winter at least) and captured such loving photos of Bradley, Heather, and Malachi. Malachi has grown up just in the past year, I love growing with my clients and being able to capture them growing as a family.Read More
I got the chance to capture the 3 Qualls kids in the studio for their Christmas photos. They wore the cutest little Santa and elf matching pajamas. They even got to sneak some of Santa’s cookies towards the end of their session. For my Christmas session’s this year I included a free Christmas gift for all of my clients. Their mommy (Jamie) gets to pick out her favorite photo of her kiddos, then I will have it printed on a Christmas ornament and they get to hang it on their Christmas tree or give it away as a gift!Read More
Faith was so much fun to work with, we captured her senior photos at Minnetrista, where she drove over an hour and a half to have me capture them! I love when I get to meet seniors who have such big dreams and ambitions. She plans on going to Butler next fall, and had to include her acceptance letter in her senior shoot!Read More
Avery was such a free spirited girl.
I got to chase her around and capture her spunky personality. We also did a session in the studio and she wore her adorable custom made tee made by her momma and loved all the stuffed animals.
How cute is she?
Where do I start? The adorable puppy, their sweet love story, or the fact that I ended up with way too many photos of these two! I had such a blast capturing Leah and Devin’s engagement photos at the Indianapolis Museum of Art. I met Leah in Art School (How fitting) and was so excited when she contacted me to photograph the two of them and their adorable puppers. These are just a handful of all of the great shots that we captured on such a cold and icy day, they were smiling and so much fun to work with, the entire time, even after I made them sit right on the icy cement! Congratulations to this sweet couple and I am so excited to see your future together!Read More
