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
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.

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
I have photographed the Romack family for several years now and known them for about 10 years. I coached Renee in cheerleading at church and watched her and her sisters grow up.

Robyn & Matt Brown made the cutest little boy Luke! The adorable facial expressions I have had to sort through and edit had me smiling the entire time.

The amount of love these two have for this little boy is so abundant. Thank you for having me capture your family, there are so many more photos to come.Read More
I have known Malory since first grade, she was one of the first friends I made in Mrs. Lane’s class. We both graduated together from Wapahani and then roomed together our freshman year of college at Indiana Wesleyan, where I witnessed Ben propose to Malory! It was so amazing to be able to capture their adorable family and meet little Charlie for the first time! Charlie was wide awake and so smiley I loved capturing all of her expressions. I had a blast catching up with Malory and Ben and capturing so many cute photos of them loving on each other.Read More

I loved working with their family and friends and especially the two of them to capture such great memories of their special day. Congratulations to Liz and Bryan!Read More
Oh where do I start!?! Kiley & Coty’s wedding was absolutely perfect! The couple were so sweet, so in love, and so much fun to work with all day! The family and their bridal party were so sweet and so helpful and kept the dance floor full all night! The groom’s mother decorated the ceremony arbor with floral that had looked like a professional florist’s work! The bride’s father hosted the entire event at his gorgeous home. Years ago he had acquired a bottle of Crown Royal that was from the year he was born and told everyone he wouldn’t open it until his daughter’s wedding, the entire bridal party and family enjoyed a shot or two together after his toast to the bride and groom. I am so happy that I got the chance to capture this beautiful wedding and help preserve memories from their very special day!Read More

Congratulations Kyle & Olivia Horvath!Read More
Oh my word! Where do I start with this adorable unique little family? So James and Elyssa travel all over the place with the fair with their two little girls! Do you know how much respect I have for this family, I can’t imagine having two little girls within 10 months of each other and expecting a third while TRAVELING 6 months of out of the year!
It rained and rained this past week and I thought we were going to catch a small break from the pouring rain… but I was wrong. I messaged Elyssa and told her I would understand if she wanted to reschedule, I was expecting a “Yes I will need to reschedule to a time when its not pouring!” But instead I got a “We might as well go for it!” (I was so excited!)
We got to the White river and it was just sprinkling, so we got out and started our photo session under a tree and then headed down to the river. As soon as we got down to the water it started raining even harder, we then headed across the street to a small park, it of course started raining harder. Elyssa, James, nor the two kids ever complained. I kept apologizing that it was raining so hard and she could have cared less! They all rocked this session and it was honestly so sweet and romantic, with the two cuddling up to each other in the rain, dancing with each other, and watching the two kiddos play and splash in the rain puddles. I am so excited to share a few photos from this perfect session! Thank you Elyssa & James for being AMAZING clients and just going with the flow!Read More
I got the opportunity to capture Playful Fox & Co.’s newest over the collar bandana. Yes this bandana is super adorable with an ostrich wearing an ugly Christmas sweater, glasses, and a Santa Clause hat! How cute? It is super durable and made SO WELL! Her website is super cute and clean too, if you are looking for DOG or CAT accessories and toys!Read More
Since my highschool senior year when I decided I wanted to become a photographer, I knew I wanted to open my own studio one day. In my head this was such an unrealistic DREAM that I never thought it would actually happen. I assumed that I would be 30/40 years old with kids before I would actually be able to do it, if I could even do it then! After several months of looking at places to rent or buy and nothing seemed to be "just right", I found a space that needed a lot of work but it was PERFECT! After a lot of hard work from Dean, Cory & JR... I HAVE A STUDIO SPACE and a waiting room is in the works! I am so happy with how it turned out, I got to completely start from scratch and pick out the colors, trim, flooring, furniture, and design it to fit Kyla Jo Photography's style PERFECTLY! Thank you to my family who has pushed me and encouraged me to reach for my dreams, for all of the props that they have donated and to all of my clients who have helped me get here! I am so thankful for all of it! I now have an indoor studio space for newborns, children, headshots, pets, boudoir, and anything you can imagine! Here is just a little sneak peek at what my studio looks like and some of the details such as the flooring, paint color, furniture, location, my favorite parts, and some of my props!Read More

Congratulations to all four of you on graduating, good luck with job hunting and adulting!Read More
