raw, honest, emotive
Photojournalistic birth & postpartum photography for the nontraditional Austin family
From the JournaL
"Amazing, beautiful soul and artist with a genuine love for what she does! Kayla has an amazing eye for what to capture in your family's moment of perfect chaos and brings to life the moments that sometimes would otherwise be forgotten. I'm so thankful we got to have her document my first birth and hope we can have her again for the next!!"
—Mel, who gave birth at Darnall Army Medical Center
"You're so fucking good at your job it's mind boggling. I love you. Thank you for this. So much. I had no idea just how badly I needed these. I've never thought of my body as beautiful until these images."
—Nikki, who gave birth at home
"Kayla not only has a keen eye for the perfect shot, but she so effortlessly and seamlessly integrates herself in to the birth space that you honestly have no idea how she managed to capture it. It takes special skill to come in to a birth room without disturbing its energy or making a client feel observed and Kayla has it in spades."
—Melek Speros, CPM, Kindred Midwifery
"Your photography stuns me. Your sense of what is important is breathtaking. Somehow what you draw out of the moment is like reading a poem or a book. A million details jump out toward my senses and make me want to look more... feel more than I might at first glance. Each one is like a little key to a different part of the heart."
