ME

Hey, I’m Kaila Mae!

I am many things, but mostly a lover of Jesus, iced coffee, natural + intentional living, and telling stories. I’m a Florida girl and stayed in the same spot until my husband and I decided to move here to Colorado Springs to start our family a few years ago. Best decision ever.

I used to dream of being a photographer for National Geographic. I wanted it so bad. I literally thought about it constantly. But.. I never did anything about it. In fact, I spent most of my childhood dreaming.. but never believed in myself enough to chase them until I had our baby. I have been shooting for 9 years, but after I became mama bear (it’s a super-power— you know if you’re a mom;) I decided to challenge myself and pursue it seriously and make it my own. I have been building my business for over a year now and it’s been so much fun to meet new people and grow into my own style.

Photography isn’t about making money to me. My desire to tell your story and capture raw, authentic moments goes deeper than that. I don’t care if I never “make it”. I don’t care about being “insta-famous”. I just want to do what I can to give you the experience you deserve to best remember your special day—no matter what kind of session it is. I am really passionate about capturing love of all kinds— but I also worked in a senior portrait studio for a few years so I’m down for that too.

I think it is really important to connect with your photographer so you are comfortable during your session and get everything you’re dreaming up for it. I’m always down to meet for coffee, facetime, or just chat on the phone. It’s seriously so important to me to make sure you hire a photographer who was 100% made for your specific situation, even if that’s not me. But it probably is. I love you. Let’s be friends.
