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

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
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Muncie raised over $5,000 at their 3rd Annual Roy C. Buley Memorial Golf Outing held at Maplewood Golf Course on June 10, 2018 with a total of 84 golfers participating. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Muncie raised the money for the Junior Golf Program with First Tee. “This event would not have been possible without the support of the Muncie community. I want to thank everyone who supported this outing in memory of Mr. Buley, and to help all of our members learn a game that has so much to teach. I’ve known for a while that this community is always happy to come together to help but it’s amazing to see them out here, early on a Sunday morning,” says Newman.Read More
