Introducing MISS SAWYER MONROE!
I don't know if she could get any cuter! My heart is absolutely melting editing her newborn photos in the studio!
I had the best assistants; momma Logan Niccum and auntie Tara Lee Berger! Here is a little sneak peek at her photos. She was such a little busy bee for most of the session, but towards the end she wore herself out and we captured the sweetest photos of her.
Introducing MISS SAWYER MONROE!
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
This blog post is for those of you who have scheduled a session with Kyla Jo Photography and now you are wondering, “Where should we have our session?”
These are some of the locations in Indiana and around Muncie that are some of my favorites. I will include reasons why I love these spots and which spots are best for families, seniors, pets, newborns, maternity, couples, and children sessions.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
This is the third time I have had the chance to work with Ashley and Zach! I look forward to every time I get to capture their family photos, the two of them are so laid back and I always have great conversations with them. This is the first time that I got to meet their new puppy Dorothy! Ashley kept telling me that she apologized ahead of time for how crazy she would be, but Zach and her brought the treats and she was absolutely perfect for the camera! I had such a blast with this family, and I can not wait to watch them grow in the future and capture their doggo throughout the years!Read More
This glowing mommy to be was just too gorgeous, I got home from my session with her and started editing her images right away! Here is a preview from my session with Ashlee & Jacob Pittenger at Whitetail Tree Farm. This couple were sooo sweet and so much fun to work with, I can not wait to capture their little girl this winter!Read More
Liz & Bryan had about 40 people in attendance at their intimate Catholic Wedding Ceremony. They were so sweet, laid back, and so in love. The two kept meeting eyes during the ceremony and huge smiles would burst from their faces! 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 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
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
Whitney & Chase Fieler were back in the states for just a couple more weeks, and we had to capture a 3 month session of Dax before they left to go back to Belgium. So many cute cuddly photos of Dax and his mom and dad.Read More
I have known Megan since I was a little girl, she was several years older than me but it never seemed to matter. We danced together at Molly's and traveled on mission trips together, served food to the homeless, made late night Walmart trips in our pjs, made up dances, laughed uncontrollably, and gave each other silly nicknames. The fact that I got to capture her precious little boy, Jameson Michael Bilyeu makes my heart melt! I just kept telling her the entire session how absolutely perfect he is and how being a mom fits her so well. Here is a sneak peek at your perfect little, week old boy!Read More
Location: Meg's Country Celebrations

Allison, Emily, Jessica, and Tangi all graduated from Ball State University this spring! Allison wanted to get a few of her friends together and capture some fun photos before they all left and went their separate ways into adulthood.

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