Get to know me!

Welcome to my about me section, where you will learn random facts you never knew you wanted to know! 

​I'm based out of Vanderhoof, BC., where I work as a professional forester and part time photographer. I love adventure and will gladly travel for photos. I mostly grew up in Prince George and I've lived in 7 different places since I was 18 years old. 

I am trying to embrace change and grow as a person, as many of us are, and photography is one of the ways I have been able to grow as an individual.

Real life Kayla

My day to day life is not the most exciting. I work in the forest industry mostly doing office work, so I spend my day inside and then go home to my dog and my husband. Our evenings vary but are usually taking up with some form of exercise followed by food and Netflix...Balance, right? I am training for my first ever marathon in 2021 and hoping like crazy that it doesn't get cancelled. Photography and running have both taught me that I can do hard things. The parallels between the two are actually really interesting.

I'm borderline introverted. What does that mean? I love being around people until I am exhausted from sharing energy and then I need to be alone to recharge. But wait! Don't leave me alone too long or I'll be sad when the extroverted part of me doesn't get it's fill. I can also be loud...overly loud and when I get excited I babble. I fully believe in accepting yourself with all your quirks and the awkwardness.

I am a sounding board and a cheering squad for my friends and I love to watch people succeed. I'm also a crier. I cry when I watch happy things from a man feeding a stray dog, to people following their dreams..even in movies. Like in The Devil Wears Prada when she quits the industry because she knows it's the right thing to do for her....yup, I cry.

“Kayla is absolutely amazing! If you’re looking for a photographer - I definitely recommend getting a hold of this talented lady! My boyfriend and I had a couples session with her a few months ago. She made us feel super comfortable, not awkward at all. She was very easy going asking what our opinions were and if we had any ideas of what kind of poses we wanted and where to take them. All my prints from Kayla are incredible, I could not have asked for better pictures to show off in my home! Thanks again!”
